Emulating the Playstation Classic Games (USA) on Modded PS3
11-28-18: Initial release.
If you haven’t heard already, Sony is releasing the Playstation Classic very soon (December 3rd) and it comes with a list of 20 games for both the USA and Europe versions. If you go on youtube or even google, the reviews are coming in, and the reviews of the Playstation Classic are not very good which is a shame because it could have been great.
With that said, I thought it would be fun to emulate the same 20 games on a modded PS3, and that is exactly what I did. The games boot fine, and I haven’t played every game to the fullest so I can’t tell you if there are any graphical or audio glitches. However, with a modded PS3, you can easily as many PS1 games as you want onto the console and it is emulated very well and you get a wireless controller to boot.
Adding and deleting games is very easy (I used FTP) and only time will tell if the Playstation Classic can be modded like the NES Classic or SNES Classic.
Check out my proof of concept video below, and if you are interested in modding a PS3, let me know!
