PlayStation Classic's hidden settings accessible through USB keyboards

PlayStation Classic's hidden settings accessible through USB keyboards

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.

Some of the options that are found in this hidden emulation menu are additional RAM based save states for each game, CRT-styles scanlines, a frames-per-second display, and modifiable "frameskip" settings. They don't know if this method has potential to brick the console or corrupt it, and if you don't know what you're playing around with, there's a good chance you probably will do so. Not just any old USB keyboard will work according to reports, you need to connect a high-end Corsair or Logitech offering. The video can be found below, but before you think about doing it, there are some things to know.

This revelation comes after the lukewarm reception of the PlayStation Classic among users and developers, especially after it was discovered that the tiny system operates using the long-running open-source PlayStation emulator, PCSX.

In the video, Wild Arms is the game being "played" during the example. The latter setting forces 50fps PAL games to run at the 60 fps NTSC standard.

In addition to settings that could increase the usability of the $99 gaming console, the loophole could also be used by hackers to take full control of the hardware.

We don't know what Sony's criteria was for including games on the PlayStation Classic, but numerous above titles are far better than what was bestowed upon us in its current shipping version.
