After the first PlayStation classics found their way into the PlayStation Store of the PlayStation 5 in Asia, suitable videos showing the PS1 titles in action are now available. Appropriately, it has been found that trophy support is optional in PlayStation Classics.
While we’ll have to wait a few more weeks before we get access to the new three-tiered model of PlayStation Plus, it’ll launch in select Asian markets as early as tomorrow, Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
In keeping with this, the first selected PlayStation classics found their way into the PlayStation Store of the PlayStation 5, which are part of the premium level of the new PlayStation Plus service. Optionally, the PS1 titles can be downloaded separately for prices equivalent to four to nine euros.
In time for the upcoming launch of the revamped PlayStation Plus service, we received videos today showing the first PlayStation classics in action on the PlayStation 5. In addition, the features and technical improvements that the PS1 titles get donated to the PS5 were discussed again.
Game experiences may differ from the original
The technical innovations include a rewind function, different scaling options (4:3, 16:9) or adjustable video filters. After the developers at Sony Bend Studios last week confirmedthat the original “Syphon Filter” from 1999 was provided with trophy support, a look at the Asian PlayStation Store makes it clear that we are dealing with an optional feature here. Whether PS1 classics are awarded trophies is at the discretion of the responsible developer or publisher.

Additionally, PlayStation Store product descriptions state that the PlayStation 5 gaming experience can sometimes differ noticeably from the PlayStation original: “This title has been converted from the PlayStation version to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles and offers newly added functions. As a result, the title may play differently than the PlayStation version or some features may cause the title to not work properly.”
It is also pointed out that features that required separate hardware at the time will be deactivated because the peripherals at the time are not supported. In Europe, the new PlayStation Plus model will launch on June 22, 2022.
