    I don't see the manuals being on the system it would more than likely be how its on the nes and snes classic you scan a QR code and then you get access to the manual.

    Sony using an emulator? This seems a little hypocritical after the Bleem case!

    They've used their own POPS emulator for PS1 games before on PS2 (online only), PS3, and PSP. I'm surprised they aren't using it this time.

    I wonder what OS this is running.

    I reckon it's using Android since pcsx runs very well on that platform. Cheap and easy to maintain.

    That's what I was thinking. If it is, hacking this thing might be easy.

    Really feels like they should've just included a disc drive at that point. Or offer the option to buy digital games because you know that thing is capable of playing more.

    Same thing if they had used Pops. Sony seems really out of touch with this stuff and doesn't seem to care. Same with lack of PS1 compat on PS4 and the lack of more PS2 releases.

    Would you believe it. Sony go and publicise the all new PlayStation Mini Classics but forgot all about their PS4 console. ....... Oh, Wait.... It's not official, as if you couldn't tell (^_^)

    I wonder if loading CD images outside of the included ones is possible. Can someone with a unit test this?

    The microUSB at the back has no data lines soldered, so you can't use it as is.
