The xStation can be installed into these original PlayStation series of consoles:

  • SCPH-100x
  • SCPH-3xxx
  • SCPH-5xxx

This xStation comes with both a PU-8 and PU-18 PCB, which will make it compatible with the models below.

100X Quick Solder Board v1a (PU-8) Compatibility:

  • Most SCPH-1001*
  • Most SCPH-1002*
  • Most SCPH-3000*
  • Most SCPH-3500*
  • All SCPH-5000

* Some of the PlayStation models use an early version of the PU-8, which unfortunately is not compatible. To determine which PU-8 version you have you must open up your PS1 and look for the number on the board. An early version would be X-XXX-XXX-11, and would be incompatible. If there is another number instead of 11 ast the end (21, 22, 23 or 41) it is compatible (the X's are also numbers, they are just not relevant).

550X Quick Solder Board v1a (PU-18) Compatibility:

  • All SCPH-5001
  • All SCPH-5500
  • All SCPH-5501
  • All SCPH-5502
  • All SCPH-5503
  • All SCPH-5552

    Couldn`t believe how quickly they modded and sent back my PS1. SAG DEFINITELY knows what they`re doing. Been loving my PS1 since. The price is right and the mod was expertly done. Thank you so much!

    An easy way to play everything

    Posted by James on Feb 18th 2024

    If you have a substantial PS1 game collection, there’s no better way to play them all without having to switch disks or worry about a failing CD drive. I backed up all my games and placed them on the included SD, and the games played as if I was running them off a disk, no errors or glitches. With the pro installation process, I didn’t have to deal with soldering either. Highly recommended for PS1 enthusiasts.
