Reviews of the PlayStation Classic have been rolling out with mostly negative connotations. It seems that the hype train may have been derailed despite its grade A line-up of games.

December 3, 1994, gave video game aficionados and super geeks a gift in the form of the Grand-Daddy of disc-based gaming; The PlayStation. December 3, 2018, saw all those same people have their childhood dreams and memories crushed.

Performance of the emulation is reportedly sluggish due to them running in their 50hz PAL versions as well as the emulation introducing bugs and glitches not originally seen during their hard releases.

On top of that, by trying to play a game that plays at a 50hz rate on a machine that features a 60hz output has allegedly been causing lags and stutters. Therefore people are complaining that the games look like trash and play like trash too.
