The PlayStation Classic is ridiculously easy to hack

Silent Hill gif

On the whole, we're fond of the PlayStation Classic but one of our criticisms during Pocket-lint testing was that it is fairly bare boned when it comes to settings.

Although the PlayStation Classic is a faithful miniaturization of the original console, it's simply an emulator, and the people at YouTube channel Retro Gaming Arts have managed to find a way to access the console's secret menu.

France, Germany move to save EU tax proposal
The tax would only come into force in 2021 if a plan for a global solution being negotiated at the OECD is not agreed before then. The blueprint calls on the bloc's members to agree on the plan "without delay and in any case before March 2019".

"So basically all I did was I took a USB keyboard and plugged it in, and then I went into one of the games and hit Escape, and then that gave me all of the access to the emulator itself", Matt explains in the video. Well all they did was plug in a USB keyboard to the console and press the ESC button... simple! The video can be found below, but before you think about doing it, there are some things to know. Keyboards like the Corsair K70 and K95 can access the menu according to reports.

In total, there are reportedly 36 games that appear in the source code that didn't make the PlayStation Classic games list. Options seen in the hidden menu include additional RAM-based save states for each game, simulated CRT scanlines, modifiable "frameskip" settings, fps display, and the ability to select the emulation region. Owners of the mini console on ResetEra who have given this a whirl report changing Tekken 3 back to NTSC, and getting the game to run at 60fps. Now as the Youtubers themselves state in the video, while there are a lot of great features and fixes you can make via this menu, it is easy to mess your Playstation Classic up in a major way to the point of not having games or anything work at all.
