PiStation Review: RetroFlag’s Tiny PlayStation Case for the Raspberry Pi 4
Retrogaming on the Raspberry Pi goes together like peanut butter and jelly, eggs and bacon, or potatoes and cheese. If you haven’t tried it before, you absolutely should, as these two things were seemingly made for each other. Even smaller models like the Raspberry Pi Zero perfectly capable emulation devices, but nothing beats the raw power of the Raspberry Pi 4. This quad-core single board computer (SBC) can handle everything from your favorite 8-bit titles to more complex systems like the PlayStation 1 which brings us to our review today of RetroFlag’s super tiny PlayStation case.
Like many tiny consoles that came before it, this one is made for fans of old school hardware that want something a little bit smaller for their collection. This isn’t Retroflag’s first foray into tiny console cases, either. They’re responsible for other beloved console replicas like the Super Nintendo and original Game Boy DMG.
This super small PlayStation was made just for the Raspberry Pi 4 and is known as the PiStation. There are two models available, one with a screen and one without. In this review, we’re covering the edition with a screen and tearing it apart to see how well it stacks up and whether or not it’s worth the investment—spoiler alert, it totally is.
