PlayStation Classic will use a PCSX emulator
Interestingly, it’s been pointed out Frank Cifaldi of Game History Org on the tech behind the PlayStation Classic. In fact, the retro console will be using an open-source emulator called PCSX.
The PlayStation Classic uses an open source emulator, PCSX. Lesser educated people might see this as a cause of frustration, but here's the reality: it's an acknowledgement that an "amateur" emulator can be just as valid as an "official" one (and they're usually better!). pic.twitter.com/zJztoiYiwT

Honestly, its interesting based on this information that Sony is seeking cheaper means with PCSX rather than an official one. Funny enough, in contrast to Nintendo striking down on emulator sites lately and Sony is using open-source tech themselves.
Yet, we’ll have to see how the twenty titles hold up with PCSX upon its December 3rd release. Comment below on what you think of the PlayStation Classic and its emulator. Also, if you liked this article why not share it on social media. In other news, Sony hints at a touchscreen option for their controllers.
