Well most people don't know what we know and since Sega is out of the console business I can sort of see it.  That being said you can get most genesis games on any platform for 3 bucks or less a pop, so I dunno.

I donít get it either but at least it has wireless controllers.

And a cartridge slot.

The wireless controller option is a pretty neat feature. How is the performance with those? Any input lag?

I did a little searching this morning and it looks like the Genesis Flashback got a new revision for 2018 and now a) is cheaper ($59.99), b) looks more like a real Genesis, and c) has a SD card slot that lets you load games from that. It also has a micro USB power port which probably makes it easier to hack. I may need to look into getting one of these now if the reviews turn out to be positive.  :cheers:

Now that the Playstation Classic is down to $40 everywhere and it's coming close to emulating Dreamcast 100%, my interest level has crept back up.

Still $50+ @ Amazon. I'd grab one if it dropped to $40 there, only because I have some credit to use up.

It's back down to $30.  I think I should pick one up just as a desk ornament. Or hack it with a better emulator if that's an option.

$30 was finally low enough for me to pull the trigger, but still probably wouldn't have done it without Bleemsync.

I remember pre-ordering the actual Bleem! for PC back around 1999, probably for around $30, then hanging out in various cracking irc channels to see how quickly the copy protection on it would be defeated, since the cd itself was literally only a protection key with some weird mastering stuff. Turns out I had mistyped the CC# and it their purchase form didn't catch that the transaction was invalid, so the disk never showed up, and I think it ended up taking a while for a cd-crack to be released, but I think by that point PSEmu Pro was getting to the point it ran reasonably well.

LOL Bleem.  Man, that drags back some memories.  My recollection is much the same as yours... by the time anyone got it to work with other games it was obsolete.  Was surreal seeing it for sale in EB Games and the like.

Google isn't revealing any progress on the Dreamcast emulation front on these things.  Am getting a laugh at major online retailers openly selling USB sticks preloaded with ISOs.

I picked this up at target for 25 bucks on the last day of their sale, had to use cartwheel app.  I walked around store and didn't see one on shelf so I figured it was sold out.  I asked guy if they were in stock and he gave me a shocked reaction as if they would never sell out.  It is still sitting in box...I figured for 25 bucks it was worth a shot but I am not sure if it will ever get used.

I picked one up yesterday. Theyíre currently selling for £27 in the UK. At that price, I decided it was a no-brainer.

Iím not intending to spend a lot of time and money on it though. Iíll probably just install a Playstation-only build and be done with it.

I'm with pbj on this one.  If you are going to use it as a prop just buy the real deal.... super easy to get a ps1 for around $30.  I know sitting on a shelf and looking pretty is about all the use my psx gets now that I have a ps4.

Yeah, I've decided to pass on it, even with it being that cheap.  I've already got my PSOne w/ LCD attachment on my desk, and it's not that much bigger than the PS1 Classic mini.

Looks like from pictures there's enough dead space inside the body to hold a de-cased SSD and sata->usb adapter... I wonder if I could find an OTG cable small enough to fit the whole thing inside the case and leave it looking stock from the outside. Certainly someone's already done that by now.

The PS Classic is just incredibly underwhelming. The stock gamelist sucks and setting the usb drive up properly to play 2 players looks like more hassle than setting up a Raspberry Pi, not to mention that the extra hardware bumps up even the discounted price to less happy amounts.

 Also, it just kills me that they didn't include dual shock gamepads. Who wants to play Metal Gear Solid without rumble? Those original old psx controllers without dual shock in decent shape go for maybe 2-3 bucks each around here.

At least people are putting together interesting gamelists to put on their classic consoles. Some of the autobleem images include games that I've never seen before, like Symphony of the Night retranslated, which is cool.

My opinion has improved but $25 feels about right.  Should have had wireless controllers as thatís where the Genesis Mini stomps on these things.  But controller works fine off two USB extension cables daisy chained,

Ran into a weird issue with the OTG cable and a thumb drive.  Wouldnít  boot into BleemSync off an old 16GB I have laying around.  But if my working 1GB and the 16GB are -both- plugged in, it boots off the 16GB.  Any combination of one in controller port, one in the OTG plug.  It also boots off the 16GB if both are plugged into an unpowered hub plugged into the OTG.  The files are identical on both drives, though obviously the 16GB has more games on it.  (I can tell by changing some settings which drive itís running...). Anyway, Iíll either live with it or get a known compatible thumb drive.

Tekken 3, Castlevania, and Parrapa all running fine.

 :cheers:

For those with Amazon credits they are matching the bestbuy price also - https://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-Classic-Console/dp/B07HHVF2XG

The controllers are automatically detected and mapped in Retroarch on the computer as well, which is a nice perk.

Yeah Retroarch is pretty good about getting mapper configurations out. I haven't had to manually configure a controller in a long time.
