PS Plus classic games sound much better than we thought


You’ve likely seen that Sony is expanding PS Plus next month, merging the existing service with PS Now. You’ll now be able to subscribe to three separate tiers and the highest option, PS Plus Premium, includes PS1, PS2, and PSP re-releases. Now, it’s been confirmed that these games will support additional display options.  

While the PS Plus rebrand doesn’t go live until May 24 in Asia, arriving next month for everywhere else, individual games have begun releasing in these territories already. Spotted by a ResetEra user (credit to Push Square), it’s now been confirmed that each PS1 game comes with numerous display options, testing this on Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee.

Firstly, this confirms that PS1 games will support their native resolutions, allowing for 4:3 and 16:9, alongside a stretched option. Secondly, each game also comes with three different visual filters. Aside from the default setting, you’ve also got ‘Modern’, though it’s unclear what this does exactly, and ‘Retro Classic’, which essentially acts as a CRT filter.

However, this doesn’t appear to apply to PSP games. Alongside Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Ridge Racer 2 was also released individually, another game that wasn’t previously confirmed by PlayStation last week.
