you never had someone pull on the disc weird and crack the plastic of the spindle so that the ball bearings that where part of the disc holding mechanism fell out did you?

I saw this kill a great many playstations.

the original launch version of the playstation didn't have dualshock controllers, the controller looked very similar, but it had no sticks. Because of this almost no playstation games actually required the sticks, one of the few is Ape Escape, which required said sticks else the game was unplayable.

No, such thing with spindle never happened to me... nor to few other people with PS1 that I knew.

I'm fully aware that Playstation originally shipped with "digital" controller - point was, saying "Dualshock edition PSOne" like you did is redundant, since all PSOne models shipped with Dualshock (pre-PSOne model from 1998 already introduced DS as standard).
And Ape Escape was fun (also, while not many games technically required DS, in practice many later ones were awkward and less playable without it)

Really? I've seen tons of otherwise perfectly working playstations have that very problem.

Its why most everything uses the disc tray these days. The slot load drive is also a terrible idea if you have kids, are drunk or are a moron... You have no idea how many slot loading drives I see with 3-4 discs shoved in them... Just got a Wii in today with Mario Party, Ice Age 2 and a 6 of diamonds stuck in it...
