The PlayStation Classic kept a lot of us in high hopes, but a lackluster lineup of titles made the retro console fall flat on its face and Sony soon admitted defeated. The console was however taken apart by hackers and before long they were able to run other backup and downloaded games on the PS1. It seems that now the PlayStation Classic has expanded its library to fit in PSP games too.
PlayStation Classic can now run PSP games. Time to find one!
If you still have the PlayStation Classic tucked away in a closet as an example of your buyers remorse, now is the ideal time to dig it out and use it to emulate some superb PSP and PS1 games! YouTube channel, Patton Plays, has made a very thorough guide on how to set up your PlayStation Classic as a PSP home station.
The console might have failed to live up to the bar set by the NES and SNES Classic released by Nintendo, but it does make a superb home console as it is an officially licensed Sony product, you’re getting the genuine look and feel of the original Console and a controller over building a capable console yourself from Raspberry Pi.
But can it run EVERYTHING? Maybe.
Keep in mind that compatibility is not a 100%, and the list of compatible games is yet to be finalized, but from what we have seen in the video, you can easily run most of the popular games easily on the system.
Sony has long since stopped producing the PlayStation Classic, because of this you’re gonna have a hard time finding a new unit unless you get lucky on Amazon or eBay. The good thing about the production-halting is that like the Nintendo Switch, there isn’t a new hardware variant that fixes the exploit which negates the way users can run games on the PlayStation Classic. So any version you find anywhere should work flawlessly.
