PlayStation Classic, retro is what's new
The new PS Classic is a faithful design to the original in almost everything,
More than two decades have passed since Sony launched the original PlayStation.
The space needs to integrate the components needed to complete the product are much smaller, and in fact the PlayStation Classic is practically half of what was the original model in terms of size. What makes it lighter, it seems a console lie for how light it is.
Let's compare its characteristics:
The exterior is very similar, practically identical. The top lid of the PlayStation that opened to give access to the CD player is not such, is "stuck" to the top cover, and the "Open" button that in the version of the original PS allowed to open that cover here does not, it allows to change the "virtual unit" if the games needed several CDs during its development.
The "Power" button does work as expected and only serves to turn the console on or off, while the "Reset" button is probably the most important since it allows you to restart the console to change the game you want to enjoy, apart from another relevant function that we will talk about later.
The controls of the PlayStation Classic, which are a faithful reproduction of the original controls in terms of design and materials: that crosshead so characteristic, those triggers and those gummy buttons of 'Start' and 'Select'.
They are still controllers with cable - there is not a step to the wireless world here, but it is enough to play comfortably. The connector is a conventional USB instead of the proprietary connector that used the original controls of the PS1.
The experience: In that carrousel a miniature capture of the cover of the game is shown, the title and developer, the year of launching and the number of players that supports. There are no great boasts in this presentation of the titles, although at least that interface does take advantage of the panoramic format of the televisions or monitors to which we connect the console: we must remember that the maximum resolution offered is 720p.
That support of the panoramic formats disappears when executing the games: Sony has not adapted these titles to modern times and there is practically no scaling, because the 4: 3 format with which they were programmed is maintained to preserve that original aspect ratio .
In many of the games included in the PlayStation Classic, they have horrible graphics and development. They can have their charm, but in gameplay and in the visual section the final result ends up dusting the memories of those titles.
