Sony PlayStation Classic Display Quality
Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Sony PlayStation Classic's website, Sony PlayStation Classic performs average to better than average in terms of display performance compared to other video game console services.
Based on a review posted on cnet.com, Sony PlayStation Classic was rated as fairly average for display performance relative to competing video game console services. Check out the entire review here. From this review:
For some reason we don't understand, nine of the 20 games in the Classic are presented in the international PAL video standard, which plays at an inherently slower refresh rate (50 Hz). Long story short, these titles will appear to have lower frame rates compared to their NTSC (60 Hz) counterparts when played on US TVs. (Here's how that plays out side-by-side.)
