For $US35,000, You Can Make Your Own PS1 Games

Website PlayStation Museum has a complete PS1 development kit, including everything you need to make a game, from coding it to burning master discs. And now it can all be yours.

The site is selling this obscure and yet amazing collection of hardware, which includes dozens of pieces of equipment as well as software and documentation.

Sadly the site can’t verify that the whole thing is in working order, as they’ve just been storing it as a “museum piece”, but it’ll still be of value to collectors, as it’s not often you get a chance to get your hands on such a unique collection of PlayStation hardware.

Bids open at $US35,000. So bring money.

  • Hm…. too much. Even for an aspiring developer. If it was for the PS2, then it might be worth the money since that still sells like hot-cakes.

    The only people who would want to buy this kit are super obsessed collectors. And if they want to buy it…. well, good luck to them.

    • Whilst the PS2 is still on the market, PSone games are supported on more platforms. It would be interesting to find out if you actually did make a game, if you could get it available for sale on PSN?

      So you could play it on the PS3, PSP, upcoming Vita, the Xperia Play, there could be potential to reach a very wide audience.
