Shortly after PlayStation Plus Premium was launched here, criticism was raised that the PlayStation classics were only available in the PAL version in this country. After Sony Interactive Entertainment immediately promised improvement, the first classic has now been provided with a 50hz/60hz function.
At the end of June, the new three-stage version of PlayStation Plus also started in Germany. PlayStation Plus Premium exclusive benefits include access to various emulators and numerous PlayStation classics that can be downloaded and played at no additional cost.
Shortly after the launch of the new PlayStation Plus version, the fact that the classics of the original PlayStation were only offered in the PAL version in this country was criticized. The PAL versions only support a display in 50 frames per second. Games that weren’t adjusted accordingly also ran 20 percent slower than their NTSC counterparts and had unsightly black bars at the top and bottom.
After Sony Interactive Entertainment immediately promised improvement and promised that the PlayStation classics would also be provided with a 60hz version in Germany, the first classic was provided with a suitable update.
Siphon Filter 2 can now be played in 60hz
We’re talking about the stealth action title “Syphon Filter 2” from the year 2000, which received an update that brought with it a 50hz/60hz switch function. It is now possible in “Syphon Filter 2” to change the region in the settings menu and to play the title in the NTSC version and thus in 60hz or 60 frames per second.
Those responsible at Sony Interactive Entertainment have not yet given any specific dates, but they did promise that all the classics of the original PlayStation in Europe will gradually be equipped with the 50hz/60hz switching function. Here, the PlayStation makers took the feedback from the players to heart and made improvements accordingly.
