As well as being smaller
, you can bet that PSOne is designed to correct some of the piracy
related woes Sony had with the Playstation
. The absence of the parallel port
is clearly intended to prevent the use of copy protection
these babies is bound to be more of a challenge than chipping the original Playstation too (I've since been informed this is not the case... Hmmm).
However, PSOne does introduce new features: apparently the device has mobile phone connectivity, meaning that sometime soon you might be playing online over the cellphone network, on your PSOne.
Dammit, I want one, for the sake of the completeness of my console collection, but I just can't justify paying money for a machine that doesn't let me play any new games.
