As defensive as I am about Toshinden being representative of the start of that era, no one really gives a shit about it at the end of the day. It is the Balloon Fight of play stations.


Except a lot more people care about Balloon Fight. There was even talk about it fairly recently in Ninja Gaiden/NES/Action Game topic. Balloon Trip is good stuff.

I think a better comparison would have been, "Toshinden is the Urban Champion of PlayStations". (Although I'm sure that game has its fans, too).

Balloon Fight is great.

$25 at some Walmarts. Guess that isn't $20 though.


Seems like a pricing error from local management at the Spring Lake store. Sold out and restocked at their normal price.

Got mine for $26 when Target was being a little more subtle (Cartwheel coupon). Even that didn't really impact their stock and I doubt straight $29 will do it either.

It's pretty irredeemable. But it's fun to hack and to pull out at house parties.

can it be used as a shell case for a raspberry?

Can you erase anything in it and run maybe a decent version of retroarch?

What a pity, the original playstation definitely didn't deserve to see its memory tarnished this way.

Hell for $10 I'd be in. It's worth it at that price as a cheap little emu box.

I'm waiting for it to hit £25 here - I've a mate down the road that will fill the thing with 100+ games and a snazzy front end for a case of beer, and it'll look neat next to the SNES and eventual MD/PCE minis.

Yep! Got it for the inevitable games themed Christmas present (can't wait for the Mega Drive mini!) and it's great for parties when we don't want the laptop soaked in beer or just feeling lazy. Definitely wouldn't pay for one, mind, and would have sold it if it wasn't so easy to hack/cute.

The specs are actually beefier than a Raspberry Pi 3B+. MediaTek MT8167a Quad A35 @ 1.5 GHz, Power VR GE8300 GPU and 1 GB of 1866MHz DDR3 memory. It's no slouch.

Yes.
