Ok, so I managed to get a PSX fairly cheap because it's in some pretty rough shape. Like many of them the DVD isn't functional which didn't surprise me. But it also has an error that causes it to shut off after a while. It seems very similar to the PS3's overheating issues so that's the theory I'm working with for the moment. I'd like to convert the menus to english, but I have seen a lot of talk about it bricking. However my understanding of Japanese is damn near nothing, and I can't fully navigate the machine. If anyone has experience with this please lemme know.
