Sony PlayStation X-Reset QSB In-Game-Reset (IGR) Mod for X-Station / PSIO

X-Reset is the absolute best PlayStation reset mod available and a perfect companion mod for X-Station and PSIO equipped Sony PlayStation consoles.

Allows reset back to game menu functionality for X-Station & PSIO using a controller button combination.

The PCB has been designed to perfectly compliment the X-Station Quick Solder Board (QSB) PCB and to be as easy to install as is possible with no wires for PU-18/SCPH-55XX & PU-22/SCPH750X consoles, and only one wire for PU-8/SCPH-100X consoles.

Install literally takes less than a couple of minutes. Less than a minute if you are really competent with your soldering iron.

Why do you need an X-Reset?

The only way of getting back to the PSIO or X-Station game select menu is by getting up and using the console’s physical reset button. This could become a chore if you want to quickly test and browse games.

X-Reset allows you to remain seated and use controller button combinations to get back to the game menu.

A must have mod for PSIO and X-Station and anyone that wants to rage quit a game.

Why buy your PlayStation in-game-reset mods from Consoles Unleashed?

I helped the development with suggestions and testing when the idea was first brought up on the PSIO forum. I was then the first person in the world to test and install PyroESP’s reset mod into all revisions of PlayStation, after which I created and donated the guides and install methods everyone now uses. I championed and promoted the mod since 2019, a year and half before others started selling the mod after all the hard work had been done. I am not a leech seller and always try to contribute and give back to the scene with help, guides, info and donations. My prices will always be the best and I will do my best to give customers a good deal if they need one. Buying from me will help me create more unique mod kits and guides as almost all the money goes directly back into the business. Unlike a lot of mod kit sellers, Consoles Unleashed is not a hobby to bolster a full-time job and generate extra pocket money, it is my sole source of income born from genuine passion. All kits are made with high quality branded parts, I don’t bulk buy the cheapest quality components to try generate the highest amount of profit. Don’t support leech sellers, profiteers, and those that don’t contribute in anyway to the modding world.

    US buyer here and the item arrived safely via no-tracking international. Just soldered into my 5500 model and it works like a charm. Super stoked for this and is a massive game changer. The QSB matches my X-Station handsomely and was super easy to install. Huge props for this!!!
