Retro PlayStation games have started to appear on the PlayStation Network’s backend servers in advance of the new PlayStation Plus service.
The five games that have been spotted so far are:
- Mr Driller (PS1)
- Tekken 2 (PS1)
- Ridge Racers 2 (PSP)
- Worms Armageddon (PS1)
- Worms World Party (PS1)
Syphon Filter, Syphon Filter 2, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow were all given ratings, suggesting these will also be part of Sony’s upcoming retro library.
Launching in June and structured across three payment tiers, the new PS Plus will combine the existing PS Plus and PS Now subscriptions, phasing out the branding of the latter.
PS Plus Essentials offers the same benefits as the current PS Plus service, with monthly free games, discounts and online multiplayer. It will also cost the same: $9.99/€8.99/£6.99 a month, $24.99/€24.99/£19.99 for three months, or $59.99/€59.99/£49.99 a year.
PS Plus Extra will include the same benefits but with access to a library of 400 downloadable PS4 and PS5 games. It will cost $14.99/€13.99/£10.99 a month, $39.99/€39.99/£31.99 for three months, or $99.99/€99.99/£83.99 a year.
PS Plus Premium will include the above benefits but adds up to 340 additional games including PS3 titles available via cloud streaming, and a catalogue of classic games available in both streaming and download options from the PSOne, PS2 and PSP generations.
