PlayStation Classic Hands on Review

By using Sony’s retro console, its a lot less in memory lane, after experiencing a lot more samples got the result that the PlayStation should offer 20-some-odd-years ago.

Nowadays still there are some who are really attached to games and for them this PlayStation Classic would be best for them and it would be according to what they actually want.

Playing with PlayStation Classic for few hours will be entertaining and one would remember the old 20th memories of going toe-to-toe while playing in local multiplayer with friend. Surely it not the thing and device we were expecting but still we will praise it for not being nonconformist console.


Anyway, after a bit bad feeling about game library, the package Sony has crafted would definitely inspire you, this Classic is a nostalgia –inducing piece of plastic. It identical to original PlayStation 1, but definitely its shrunk with modern touch like HDMI out, a power USB port and USB controllers.

This device of Sony is not only smaller but it a lot lighter too. That it becomes easy to pack up and take anywhere you want. Praise the HDMI port too, that now you don’t worry to find a TV  screen to support legacy composite connectors.

Along the top side of this Classic PlayStation you will find the three buttons of power, open & reset. Powers turns the Classic on and off, and Open allows switching virtual discs in multi-disc games like Final Fantasy V11. Reset is a bit different, it takes you back to the game selection menu and makes a resume point for the next time you want to jump back into that game.

Performance of Games in Library:

There is not only the games we play in past but these games are also not given the HD update. It pulls you to 20 years before.

Sometimes, its glad to see jagged polygonal models in 2018. We have been become so used to of using polished and superb games that pop-in pop-out in some games seems funny and cool both. It appears that HD games amazed us more.

If you use this for classic result like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid, they seems and play exact same way you expect. Considering these types of games often cost some money on PSN store but you will get a bit bargain by Sony.

Early Verdict:

Its convenient to compare Classic with other games. But precisely, almost games in classic are in 3D form and it start problem and issues.

But still The PlayStation Classic is a new thing in market, it would be a will to go far more to good results.
