Is it legal?

No unless they have paid for the rights to use the games and the Playstation logo which has no way happened :-lol


Essentially they have purchased a load of cheap usb keys that will probably fail in record time, put the free hack of AutoBleem or Bleemsync on them and taken all the game roms from sharing sites

then the best part, put it in a box with the Playstation logo on :-lol

Well put it this way, Sony never put Tomb Raider on the Classic because they never wanted to pay the license fees and royalties yet the True Blue usb stick has the first, second and third Tomb Raider games :-lol

The True Blue also has Gran Turismo 2 which Sony never put on the Classic due to music track licensing.

So no it's not legal but :-whistle If you wanted extra games on your classic and you don't want to get involved in hacking the classic and finding the roms yourself then :-whistle it looks an alright product ;-)

Pity they don't do a 128gb. It looks like 64gb is the largest on their site.

This won't last long when Sony legal team gets wind of it :-D

Good little enterprise though, I gather it's from China :-question

Chinese bulk buy overheads :-think

64GB usb stick - £2
usb 4 port hub - 50p
printed box - 5p
software - free
100 game roms - free
time to setup the usb stick with the hack and games - negligible, once you have done one you just have to duplicate it to the other usb sticks.


Charge £22 and it just needs shipping out

I've had cheap usb sticks like this in the past and they never lasted very long before failing so think about that before buying. Also TrueBlue sticks have copy protection so you cannot copy the usb or backup the games to another stick.

For a non tech savvy person that has a Playstation classic mini this is a great buy to add a selection of games to the sparse default selection on the system. Without having to download the games and set up the usb drive yourself.

Plug and Play, over a hundred extra games for £20 what more do you want :-dunno


My only reluctance is the use of a generic no name drive and how long that will last. You're not getting a Sandisk or Samsung drive here.


If you're slightly tech savvy you would be better off buying a Samsung 64GB for £16 and doing it yourself. At least if the drive packs up working you have a warranty.

Amazon are not selling it. It is a third party selling it through Amazon and Amazon don't know it may be illegal.

All power to the people making this. If Sony had half a brain they themselves would have been selling usb sticks with a variety of game paks on.

The Meth pack has Grand Theft Auto which is already on the system :-think why duplicate when they could have put a different game on.
