Still no otg support? For 2 players.
Possible with Honeylab's OTG mod but still too early and complicated, will be refined in the future from what I have read and added to bleemsync and autobleem mods.

Someone who got it working, with instructions: https://www.reddit.com/r/PlaystationCla ... d_running/

Doesn't seem to be recommended, as it's very early & has bugs, just need to wait.

If you guys need a game emulator, at 29$ this is a bargain.
Yes the rband new raspberry pi 3+ would be better overall, and with more support, but at that price point, with the form factor, and the 2 high quality controllers included, it gives you retro emulation at a very cheap price.

I used an old USB hub I had lying around in port 1 for both controllers. No issues in retroarch.

i guess the main difference is that you can have basically as much storage as you want on the pi and this would be limited correct ?

No, u can plugin a 128GB USB if you want, just limited to how much power it can draw so USB3 drives may not work without a hardware mod to increase power. You can also get a powered hub, plug it into controller port 2 and then plugin controller 2 & a usb3 drive.

OTG support will allow u to plugin to back USB power port (rear USB-Port as host), and u will not have any issues and can use non-powered hubs/splitters, attach keyboard/mice if you want.

This trash flopped pretty hard.
Sony got on the mini console bandwagon. Hardware wise it's very decent, but they failed software wise. Could of easily been a success, if they included a better line up, did not put PAL games on a North American release, literally tweaked a few settings/optimizations on the emulator and sold it for a bit cheaper, $100 USD / $120 CAD was greedy. The price & initial reviews is what killed it for most people.

Either a Pi3 with RetroPi or Playstation Classic with Autobleem/Bleemsync + RetroArch.

But it depends which Mario games u want, N64 stuff won't run as well as NES/SNES stuff.

Pretty much anything can emulate that, so would be easy to do with RetroArch on PS Classic. You'll just need to follow some tutorials on getting it working.

Install Autobleem first then added RetroArch
