But only certain high-end USB keyboards from Corsair and Logitech. The debug or settings menu, brings up a lot of the options for the "off-the-shelf" PCSX emulator used by the PlayStation Classic. Ranging from access to save states in addition to visual effects like old TV scan-lines and even stuff like switching between PAL and NTSC modes.
It's that last bit that has people excited because as it stands the PlayStation Classic's emulation is well, pretty poor. Offering very little in the way of proper up-scaling or even matching performance of the original releases. With a number of the included titles running in the noticeably slower PAL 50Hz mode, the PlayStation Classic all but presents the worst versions of games like Tekken to fans of the '90s era PlayStation.
Here's a look at the discovered back-end. As the video highlights, there's no word on what potential damage messing with settings might have on the classic console.
No doubt hackers and enthusiasts with dive deeper into the hardware to take direct control of the emulation in the coming weeks. Adding more games or switching out what's on there. It's something we saw with Nintendo's classic consoles the mini-NES and mini-SNES. The only different here though is that the attempts would be to salvage Sony's sup-bar entry into the whole "classic console as a toy" market.
