I was fortunate to find a brand new PSone for a pretty good price on eBay from the states. New, at least what the seller promised, and from what I can see when looking closer, it sure looks mint to me. Anyways, my plan was to buy the first model “SCPH-1001” since it has a reputation of having the best sound quality. Thus the model with Audio and Video out connectors alongside the Multi-Out connector. I wanted one with the original box, new or very good used condition. Couldn’t find anyone in a good price range, story short found this one, even though I’ve never liked the PSone / slim model before I now must admit that I actually prefer the PSone model compared to the old. Sure, no expansion slot, but I’m not really gonna have any use of it since I’ll only be playing original discs on this system. Although a Playstation with an expansion port would’ve given me the possibility to add an PSIO. Something too look forward to in the future, for now I’m just happy to be able to play my NTSC-U collection which most of the games are left to me by big brother and still adding new ones.
The box looks to be in quite good condition and everything is accounted for except the plastic bag for the console itself.
The console itself is in a great condition, but as you can see something has happened with the controller’s left trigger button being pushed in. I had to open up the controller and re-align the button. Not a big deal, might’ve been a factory misshapen, no worries. The controller works just fine and looks brand new as everything else does. Not that I’ll be using it anytime soon since I’ve acquired several “Fanatec G Wireless SLEH-00062” controllers that were officially licensed by Sony, and they are the best! I love these controllers, I even use them with my Sega Master System II which has a couple of mods benefiting from the dual sticks. Allowing me to use the pause button mod via the controller sticks for pause and region change by pulling the sticks left and right at the same time. I’m using This adapter that I bought was meant to be used with my CD32 but worked out great for my Sega Master System II. I’ll have a tutorial on these mods and leave a link to it Here!
You can never have too many Fanatec G wireless SLEH-00062 controllers! Anyways, to the right you can see the original PSone Controllers Left Trigger button has been properly aligned and works perfectly. Finally some shots of the bundle and it’s content.
