Why does the Shield TV drop frames with Tekken 3 but the same game runs perfect with the same core and retroarch on a Shield Portable, a significantly less powerful machine?

I don’t get it.. i have two real ps1’s and they run fine. They’re still out there. If you want to play PlayStation then do it. You can put any game you desire in it as well. This whole “classic” console fad is a marketing ploy and nothing else.

Love my modded snes mini that comes with like 7000 games. Most of which run great/good enough. Save any where. Turbo mode functions. It's sick... Got it for about 200. Shame that this ps1 mini is a joke. Can it even be modified to you know... NOT SUCK? Oh well. I already own most of my fav ps1 games on ps1 disk to play on my ps3 so it's not a big deal I guess...

I feel very strongly at this point that the PS Classic was farmed out to a third-party design firm. It would explain why they didn't just use POPS like every other Sony console and the bizarre library choices, as well as the USB keyboard thing.

Best insight on PS Classic I've seen so far. Also this console totally sounds like a trainwreck, which is probably best if it's hacked to work with a homebrew emulator. Still, I think I will probably get it to acquire those sexy USB controller replicas, as I collect Sony controllers to use on PC. Welp, RIIIIDGE RAAACEEEER!

Funny but in PAL regions we never got those funky colours on our UI, we had a grey UI full of blocks, so that UI is not nostalgic at all and as such looks very ugly to us.

Erm, wrong... Everyone dislikes the games selection, the selection has to be special, you don't have to slimily creep into the asses of developers of random third- or second-rate games who are probably dead. You dumb freak (just caught a glimpse of you). Just look at that, although consensus is that the selection is disappointing and a FAILURE on Sony's part, the sliminess and cocksucking can't even stop here, but the shit has to be upvoted to the climax. It's so disgusting: as long as it's disgusting, it's BIG on the internet. Never a brain cell, never... And insofar some game(s) MAY be "great", this doesn't even have to mentioned, as it HAS TO BE EXPECTED, what has to be mentioned is how many aren't. And oh go figure, that's the point you totally miss..

There is money to be had in retro gaming. How the hell could PS screw this one up! Simple they're stupid as hell. Even Nintendo is not immune to this stupidity. Oh well if not on the original than there's always retro pie. Although the others mentioned like Nvidia and PS Vita look like great options for that nostalgic gameplay. Thankfully I still have both a functioning PS2 and PS3.

I see this PS Classic as a way for Sony to "emphesize" the "better performance" of the PS4, compared to the first PlayStation. ;) In a way lying to the people and rwriting history to hide the fact that in 24 years, or at least after the PS2, not much has been innovated with their consoles. :p

sega saturn was more powerful, i had rayman 1 on it and was vastly superior, BUT later on i learned that it was harder to code, had obviously less games because of that and wasn't friendly for third party games, and most important didnt have such a good marketing campaign as sony, making it a commercial failure, so yeah, a couple of "slightly superior 2 graphics vs a cheaper, with WAY bigger catalog. console, obviously sony's playstation got the upper hand quickly

Glad I didn't buy into this one. I've never seen a worse way to run ps1 games ever since the first days of ps1 emulation. I grew up in PAL territory and because of that 50 Hz has never felt bad, but why choose it over 60 when you have the option?

Sometimes I think people working on things like this didn't really play the original games at all... but I guess they don't aim for the hardcore gamer who desires accurate replication. They target the casual with money to burn and no real expectations beyond being able to go "oh hey, I remember this".
