The Sony PlayStation Classic is a small console that’s about the size of a 7″ LCD, comprised entirely of one PCB and a couple of low-power SMD components. The entire PS1 Classic can be powered with a modern phone charger, although it only has 20 games on its Samsung Flash module. In this video, we take apart the PS1 Classic and go through its specs, including CPU speed, RAM capacity, and storage capacity. The controller tear-down is next.
