Sony did not bother to create your own emulator, or at least to optimize ready.
In the Wake of Nintendo’s success with retro consoles Classic NES and SNES Classic, Sony also decided to release a miniature version of its legendary PlayStation One. Unfortunately, this system does not live up to its expectations.
For the first week in Japan PS Classic has sold a modest circulation of 120 thousand copies (compared to 370 thousand in the SNES Classis), which forced Sony to reduce the price from $100 to $70 after less than a month since the start of sales.
Sony has been criticized for using free emulator open-source PCSX ReARMed, a mixed library of just twenty games, the presence of projects from different regions (NTSC and PAL), hacking the console in a matter of days, as well as performance issues.
Blogger 8 Bit Flashback decided to compare PlayStation Classic and hacked SNES Classic Mini with the same emulator PCSX ReARMed Retroarch for example the game Ridge Racer. On paper, the PS Classic iron is stronger than the opponent, however, that SNES Classic Mini has provided smooth gameplay, while on the PS Classic was jerking and delay in management.
In any case, Sony did not bother to create your own emulator, or at least to optimize ready. The wrapper PlayStation Classic it turned out to be nothing but the desire to earn easy money on the nostalgic feelings of the fans.
