Join me as we install the XStation in the Sony Playstation original model. Xstation is an ODE (optical disc emulator) which allows you to launch games in image / ISO format directly from the SD card.

We also explore why some games have a rainbow sheen when launched on the console!!!

Some of the main features of the XStation are:

  • Full compatibility with the PlayStation 1 library, all regions
  • Multi-disc support and easy swapping
  • Return to the Loader by holding the reset button for 1 second
  • Micro SD cards of any size are supported
  • ExFAT and FAT32 support
  • Simple drag and drop card setup
  • Supports .iso, ccd/img, cue/bin (single and multiple)
  • Integrated PSNee, for automatic region-free operation
  • Automatic 50/60Hz switching
  • Loading times are a little faster than an original drive in good condition.
  • Easy firmware updates by simply dragging and dropping an update file to your microSD card.
