    Funnily enough, I was going to mention the Jaguar for the exact same thing! :)

    Didn't quite work out for either of them really, but I admire the attempts.

    Except for the underpants. You can keep those. :)

    I'm not sure the comparison works. The Amiga was a full-fledged computer so was well-suited to running whole genres of games which don't work as well on consoles (e.g., Elite, Syndicate, Secret of...

    Curious why you think so? I'd follow your assumption if this was, say, a Konami release, but Sega have been pretty good about releasing their old catalogue as proper boxed editions on actual consoles.

    For SMT? Nah. Whatever iron tip you're most comfortable with is best. In the tutorial videos I linked upthread he uses a larger tip to make drag soldering easier.

    It's especially disappointing because, as far as I can tell, these issues are all software. That's the one part Sony does have the ability to change right up to a late stage of production.

    I used to think so, until I had to start doing it for work on a regular basis. Now I actually prefer working on SMT to through-hole*!

    * BGA packages notwithstanding. They're terrible.

    It's hard to tell from the video, but have they tried to save a buck or two with a two-layer PCB? It'd explain the odd placement of the two crystals in the bottom-left.
