Make no mistake: the PS One has all of the same functionality as the original PlayStation workhorse, will work with all of the same peripherals and accessories, and will play the existing PlayStation game library, as well as audio CDs (also note that, like the original PlayStation, it's not compatible with the more advanced PlayStation 2). The difference here is that this new model is quite a bit smaller than its older brother, and quite a bit cuter, too.
The system is made up of a 32-bit, 34-MHz RISC processor with 16 Mbits of main memory, 8 Mbits of graphics memory, 24-channel stereo sound, double-speed CD-ROM drive, and one Dual Shock analog controller. That's not a lot of power, compared to a next-generation system like the Sega Dreamcast; but, when you factor in its very low price and the enormous library of games that are available (more than 1,000 that are spread across every genre imaginable), one can see easily why it's as good a deal as ever. If rumors of exciting future accessories for the PS One (a four-inch LCD screen attachment, to name one) are true, this little machine could become a great option for the on-the-go gamer. --Porter Hall

Now for the real review:
I had a choice to make a year ago. Xbox? ps2? gcn? gba? dc? I had considered all of these. I decided to drop xbox and gcn becuase or their terrible game selection. I dropped dc when i heard it was discontinued. So that left gba or ps2. I also dropped gameboy advance because i had gameboy pocket, the original, and gbc. Right now they are deep inside my closet collecting dust.
After much research, I finally came to a conclusion to ask for a ps2 for the holidays. I added up all necessary harware accesories and games to see how much they all cost. A console, memory card, controller, and 5 descent games costs around 600 dollars. I dont know about you, but after my parents spending 600 dollars i dont think they will be geting me new games that often.
Looking even further, i decided to take a shot with the 7 year old ps1. I wasnt to thrilled with my choice. Now, im so glad i chose this.
Instead of 600 dollars (which buys only 5 good ps2 games, and the console), I used 200 dollars to get a ps1, all accesories, and 12 amazing games.
If you ask me, buy this cool machine. Wait 2 years until a ps2 drops, then buy a ps2.
oh ya, ps2 is going to be popular for a while becuase ps3 is going to cost 500 dollars :)
If your looking for some good ps1 games, check this list out. (its listed from my number one favorite, to my number 10 favorite)
1. Final Fantasy IX
2. Tony Hawk's pro skater 3 (4 is terrible)
3. Tekken 3
4. Final fantasy VII
5. Spyro-year of the dragon
6. Mat Hoffman's pro BMX
7. Gran Turismo 2
8. Resident evil 3
9. Metal Gear Solid
10. final Fantasy VIII ( lots of pacience needed )
Okay, what is it? Essentially, it's just a PlayStation (same specs and everything, minus serial and parallel ports); only smaller. MUCH smaller (take 2 DVD cases, stack them on top of each other, and you've got an idea of PSone's size!). Personally I always thought that the original PlayStation was compact, but THIS wins the prize!
You also get a Dual-Shock controller (same as the previous ones, which you can STILL use), the power supply (external now; this isn't a battery-operated portable), and an A/V cable (just like the old PS, you still need to plug this into a TV). Supposedly (hopefully), Sony will be bringing out a clip-on screen for the unit next year.
Although this isn't quite a fully-portable game system (right now, you still need an AC plug and a TV screen), it is far more TRANS-portable than any other console on the market today; much more easy-to-pack. If you're looking for a replacement for your current PS, and you don't need a PS2 (yet), a PSone is a great LITTLE device. Besides, it's so CUUUTE!!!
The PS One is simply a Playstation, it plays all the same games, and offers no improvements in speed or graphics. If you look at the picture, the system actually is about the same size as the controller! It's very small, and yes, very "cute", but all Sony did was take the old Playstation and put it in a new case.
The PS One is not really a portable system. The LCD screens I've seen for it are the size of a CD - hardly big enough for most PS games, especially RPGs. Also, you will still need a power outlet, and the controller will always be seperate, so playing a few rounds of Tony Hawk between classes is hardly convenient. It is easier to move from TV to TV, though.
The Playstation 2 plays 99.9% of the games that the PS One does. Also, the PS2 improves the graphics and loads the games slightly faster. If you are absolutely certain that you are getting a PS2 in the next 12 months, you might want to wait. Better yet, spend your money on the outstanding Dreamcast.
So why get a PS One? Well, if you are in the same position as I am - you have a broken Playstation and a large library of games that you miss. I play RPGs on a small TV in my bedroom before I go to sleep, whereas I want to keep my PS2 in the living room for the DVD playback.
-FMVs and graphics load alot faster -The 'Geiss-like' CD visual effects are ... awesome -New audio effects for CD music
I've seen some people who claim that this system "doesn't have a fan, so it will overheat." This is a big lie. Firstly, I have alot of RPGs for the PSX, and you probably know you can spend hours upon hours at a time playing those games. Well the original PSX never had a fan and it never overheated. I know this, because I had to repair my old PSX several times and I never saw a fan inside. I bought Final Fantasy 9 not to long ago, and if this thing was gonna overheat, it would be a melting pile of plastic by now as much as I've played that game :P You might also think that the little screen and battery pack comming out for this thing will be too expensive for you. Well according to IGN, the Sony brand Screens and Battery packs will be around ..., and third party companies will be making even cheaper versions!
Why spend time waiting for other 'next-generation' systems to come out with good games, when there are already good, inexpensive games out there for this system? Get a PS One and let the ebay druglords keep there PS2s :P
