Introduction[edit]

The PlayStation Classic is a dedicated video game console by Sony Interactive Entertainment that emulates games originally released on its 1994 PlayStation console. It was announced in September 2018 at the Tokyo Game Show, and released on December 3, 2018, the 24th anniversary of the release of the original. The console has been compared to competitor Nintendo's prior releases of the NES and Super NES Classic Edition mini consoles.

Specifications[edit]

The PlayStation Classic ships with two replica PlayStation Controllers (the original model, which are without analog sticks), an HDMI cable, and a USB Micro-A to standard USB-A cable. An AC adapter for the console is sold separately. The console weighs about 170 grams (0.37 lb) and is about 149 mm × 33 mm × 105 mm (5.9 in × 1.3 in × 4.1 in) in size, approximately 80% smaller in volume than the original PlayStation and 45% smaller in width and length. It includes ports for both controllers, HDMI output, and power via USB. The controller's cords measure approximately 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) long. It cannot use PlayStation memory cards. Internally, the console uses a MediaTek 8167a Quad A35 system on a chip with four central processing cores clocked at @ 1.3 GHz and a Power VR GE8300 graphics processing unit. It includes 16 GB of eMMC flash storage and 1 GB of DDR3 memory.

The Classic uses the ReARMed branch of the free and open source emulator PCSX to play its games.

Hardware Modification[edit]

USB Current Limiting[edit]


The two USB ports on the front of the PlayStation Classic are current-limited meaning they will only provide 5v @ 100mA. For mass storage devices and other devices, this is probably too low. 100mA is probably fine for stuff like mice, keyboards, game controllers but can cause instability or incompatibility if a device requires more draw.

This current limiting is handled by a switching current limiting chip on the motherboard. There is one for each USB port. This chip is a TPS2553D. Based on the datasheet we can see that the ILIM pin is used to control the value of the maximum allowed current draw. With two resistors in series totaling at about 226k ohms, we know that it will only provide 100mA. By reducing the resistance between this pin and ground we can increase the maximum allowed current draw.

It turns out if we give a resistance of zero, or directly short this pin to ground, we can effectively disable any current limiting for the port with a maximum of 1.5A allowed. The easiest way to do this is to short one side of the two resistors.

To disable the current limiting on port 1, short these two points:

To disable the current limiting on port 2, short these two points:

Currentlimiting2.png

To prove that this works, disable the current limiting on port 1. Then turn on the machine and plug a phone or other device that charges via USB into port 2. You should notice that the device will not charge. Now, plug it into port 1 and you should see the device charging.

Compatible USB Drives[edit]

Note Note: Most USB 3.0 flash drives work well with a powered USB hub, as their main problem is that they need more power that the PSC USB ports can deliver. Please be advised that mileage may vary due to a write current requirement.

Software[edit]

See Rockman for more technical information.

Emulator[edit]

The stock emulator shipped by Sony is PCSX ReARMed, the frontend used is internally called Sony UI and is no different to how we would use RetroArch, the difference being RetroArch utilizes multiple cores while the stock interface is designed for one specific emulator. Projects such as BleemSync are able to overmount and modify scripts and databases used by the Sony UI to add additional games, pseudo-folders, and shortcuts to other applications on the console.

BIOS[edit]

The PlayStation Classic uses two bios:

Filename Version Region Checksum (md5) Description
romw.bin 4.5 05/25/00 J region free C53CA5908936D412331790F4426C6C33 The same BIOS is used for the PS1 emulator on PSP
romJP.bin 4.5 05/25/00 J JP 476D68A94CCEC3B9C8303BBD1DAF2810 Very similar to romw.bin (it shares 80% of the code) but region locked

Operating System[edit]

The OS is Yocto, using aud Baseline. Yocto aud for Rockman

Software Modification[edit]

Shortly after release it was confirmed that Sony used their public key to sign private packages, giving us gpghax, then lolhack payloads.

By using these methods we have gained root access to the console itself, and can modify the file system as well as the kernel using extensions and customized payloads with overmounting shell scripts to replace binaries until the next reboot.

Hacks[edit]

AutoBleem[edit]

AutoBleem, by Artur "Screemer" Jakubowicz, is an alternative to BleemSync/BootMenu.

psxc_xpandr[edit]

psxc_xpandr by u/kounch is a safe hack to expand and/or replace virtually games in a PlayStation Classic using an external USB drive, with no risk. Once you remove the USB drive and make a cold restart, the console works as if nothing was done. However, you have to create manually the directory structure and obtain manually all the files to add a new game (BIN, CUE, Cover Image PNG, Game Description INI, etc.).

Features:

  • Minimal modification of PlayStation Classic internal storage
  • Can keep or virtually replace the original installed games (loaded from USB drive instead or internal memory)
  • Can add new games (loaded also from USB)
  • Extracts automatically all of the needed files when used on a blank USB drive
  • Adds support for access to the console emulator menu using simultaneously the buttons `Select` and `Triangle` of a controller
  • Optionally compatible to play with two controllers, using a USB hub
  • Optional UI modifications support
  • Optional cheats support via cheatpops.db
