With the launch of the new ones now imminent PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscriptions in Asia, some of the PS1 and PSP games which will be included in the most expensive tier catalog, thus revealing new details on the features and extras for PS4 and PS5. Apparently there is also the online multiplayera bit like the Nintendo Switch Online classics.
As reported on social media, some PS1 and PSP games have been added to the Asian PlayStation Store, namely Worms World Party (PS1), Worms Armageddon (PS1), as well as Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee (PS1) and Ridge Racer 2 (PSP) that weren’t on Sony’s shared list last week. The prices for the purchase, in case you do not want to subscribe to PS Plus Premium, are between 4 and 9 euros.
As previously confirmed by Sony, some of the classic titles will feature extras, such as quick saves and a new interface. However, the case of Worms: World Party is particularly interesting as it would seem to include, among the various additional functions, also the possibility of play online multiplayer, an extra on which Sony had not yet commented and which we hope will be extended to other classics as well. The description of the PlayStation Store in fact reads:
“Enter the fantastic” Wormpot “which offers you over 1000 different play styles. All modes are available offline, online or a combination of both!”
Some classics from the PS1 era
As regards the other extra featuresdepending on the game it will be possible to make a quick save at any time and rewind the time, there are various filters (Default, Retro Classic and Modern), cloud saves, as well as the possibility to choose whether to play with the original 1: 1 ratio, 4: 3, 16: 9 or “wide stretched” (which spreads the image in full screen, with all the pros and cons of the case).
We also remind you that some PS1 and PSP games may have higher framerates and resolution, Trophy support (as in the case of Siphon Filther) and more.
Finally, if you have purchased a classic game in the past, you can redeem it for free on PS4 and PS5 when it is made backwards compatible, even without a PlayStation Plus subscription.
