    Depends on what you expected, for the likes of the original Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Alien Trilogy I think it is well worth it.

    I don't think it's the games themselves that are the problem. Numerous reports about issues with the emulation.

    Thing is, when PS1 came out, it was a step forward in terms of PQ/SQ and gaming. I have many fond memories of it, but when we switched it on, it just looked and sounded crude.

    You can hardly compare it with the modern consoles, but Flashy's comments does make me wonder that perhaps I should just pick up a second hand PS 1 instead.

    I wasn't. I was comparing it with my 25 year old memories of the PS1.

    I bought a second hand PS1 some years ago and really enjoyed the games I played again, unfortunately I had to declutter and it had to go.
    Just cancelled my order because of the issues will keep an eye out for a PS 1 original though.
