PlayStation Classic Review
Now here’s what the early reviewers said about the mini console.
Here’s the PlayStation Classic review by IGN.
Here’s the PlayStation Classic review by GameSpot.
Based on these 2 reviewers, PlayStation Classic is considerably lacking a few things to make the system great: optimization for games to run full on 60 fps, scanlines option to show on HDTV and 4K TV, dual shock analog controller supports and lastly 20 games are not enough.
But apart from all the lackings, still PlayStation Classic is as close as you can get if you want to play old-schooled PlayStation games in forms of PlayStation original console.
Hopefully, there will be upcoming hacks to enable those lacking features, notably to add more games to the mini console as well as to use dual shock analog controllers.
