I’m getting bored about mentioning the PlayStation Classic in almost every single article I write, but what can I do? It’s apparently the craze everyone’s going for. With just 20 pre-installed games and a retro controller that doesn’t come with analog sticks, I’m certain that the “love” for this classic is no more than infatuation. Limited Run Games latest product is here to save the day with the brand new PlayStation 2 HDMI Converter.
What is it?
Pound Technology is producing an HDMI converter for the PlayStation and PlayStation 2. The converter is called POUND TECHNOLOGY® PS2/PS1 HDMI CABLE and will be available for pre-order exclusively via Limited Run Games’ official website. It is due for shipment mid to late November, which is just next month.
The idea is that you can play your original PlayStation 2 on the current modern-day television/ monitor with ease. It comes at a price of $29.99. The HD link cables come with the HD LINK unit, an HDMI cable, and a Micro USB cable for power. If that doesn’t sound value-for-money enough for you, I’m not sure anything will.
Despite being primarily marketed for the PlayStation 2, the HD LINK product can also be used for your beloved PlayStation One or PSX. This works by force up-ressing the PlayStation’s original 240p resolution to 480ip and then subsequently upscaling it to 720p. The website also advertises other features such as:
- Excellent RGB video quality
- 6 feet cable length
- A premium, high-quality design
- Includes 6ft USB-A to micro USB cable for console power supply
- Cable management tie offs
I’ve heard enough, let me order!
