As Asian markets are seeing the PlayStation Plus revamp start today (May 23), multiple titles not on the previously announced list have been put onto the PlayStation store, with some extra features not in the original games also detailed (via Eurogamer).
According to the PlayStation store, PS1 game Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and PSP title Ridge Racer 2 are available. The Oddworld game page reveals that the title will come with a series of new features, including “up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters”.
This means that PS1 games will have different resolutions ranging from native, 4:3 and stretched, alongside three video filters in, default, retro classic and modern. Retro classic aims to closely emulate the look of old CRT televisions, which were used to play PS1 games when they originally released.
Sony also previously said that some PSP and PS1 games would have improved user interfaces, the ability to save state anywhere, and even an in-game rewind feature. Users who have already bought the digital versions of any games on the revamped PlayStation Plus service will also not be required to buy them again.
Games from the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP generations will be added to the subscription service in the middle of each month, with the number of games set to “vary” month-to-month as well.
