Playstation Debugging Unit

Released in 1995, the Playstation Debugging Unit was compatible with game discs from any zone (PAL/NTSC/SECAM). It plays games on CDR, as Beta soft is on CDR. This station is used to find bugs in beta games, etc. The unit is similar to the 1001 series in format and board design. It also shares the early model PSX design flaw; poor laser quality.
