The team behind the PS1 Digital has just released a new firmware update, with the option to add border support for the Sinden Light Gun; A device that uses a white border around the game image to track where on the screen you’re “shooting”. This allows light gun games to be used on all TV’s, including flat-panels. This is great news, as the PS1 has quite a few good light gun games and I’d love to try them on a big, modern TV!
Updating your PS1d is easy and only requires a wifi connection: See the “in depth look” video below for more info. Using the Siden Light Gun will require a PS1/PS2 adapter as shown in a demo video posted awhile back: https://youtu.be/9X8FaIIbvpM
The Sinden Light Gun has been getting mostly positive reviews. It’s still a bit laggy and compatibility can be challenging with non-emulation devices, but it’s also a brand new device that still has plenty of time to grow.
PS1Digital Firmware Release v1.5.3
– New: Sinden Lightgun support
– Bonus: Border feature used for the lightgun can also be used to hide unwanted overscan areas
And yes, the border feature is supported with per-game settings 🙂
