Using an emulator, you can run PSX games on a SNES Classic Mini.

Quiet a few folks were a bit disappointed with The PlayStation Classic mini console’s performance, many of which said the games run rather slow. Enter 8 Bit Flashback, which hacked a SNES Classic mini to run PSX games, and the little console seems to do a better job of it.

A video from 8 Bit Flashback shows the difference between the two consoles with Ridge Racer Type 4.

According to the folks behind the YouTube Channel, the SNES Classic is running the PCSX ReARMed emulator with Retroarch (thanks, Nintendo Life).

Ridge Racer is apparently one of the worst running games on the PS Classic, and when comparing the controls, the one included with the SNES outperformed.

Another PS One Classic game, Tekken 3, was also able to be played using the emulator, but it’s not perfect due to sound issues.

If emulators are of interest to you, be sure to give the video a watch.
