The PlayStation Classic is available in the Netherlands since today and it appears that users of the console can easily adjust settings of the emulator. All you have to do is connect a keyboard and press the ‘Escape’ button while in a game.

Several developers are probably already looking for ways to hack the PlayStation Classic, so that you can install extra games, for example. That is not yet possible, but YouTube user Retro Gaming Arts discovered that the system also responds to a keyboard with a USB connection. “All I did is connect a keyboard and in one of the games I got access to the emulator by pressing Escape,” Matt said in the video.

A list of licenses in the menu shows that Sony has used the open-source PlayStation emulator PCSX ReARMed and it shows in the available settings. It is possible to activate scan lines, access cheats and also change the region. On ResetEra, several users report that they have changed the region to NTSC, after which Tekken 3 is displayed at 60 frames per second. By the way, this trick only seems to work with Logitech and Corsair’s keyboard. The use is at your own risk and can cause problems.

In the Netherlands, the PlayStation Classic can be ordered from Bol.com, MediaMarkt, Coolblue, Wehkamp and NedGame. The mini console has a suggested retail price of 99 euros, however, there are several retailers that benefit from the popularity of the product. If you want to be sure that you will receive the PlayStation Classic on the day of release, it is wise to pre-order as soon as possible.
