UPDATE 01/06/22: Following yesterday's leaks, Sony has officially confirmed that God of War 2018, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl are all heading on over to PlayStation Plus this month.
Of note, GOW 2018 is already on the PS5 Plus. So this really benefits PS4 gamers.
The region’s revamped subscription service went live on Thursday…
As expected, Japan’s classic PSOne games also run in the NTSC 60hz format, since Sony has opted to publish the original Japanese language versions of the games.
When the classic games went live in other Asian countries last month, fans were disappointed to discover that Sony had opted for the inferior 50hz PAL games, a decision likely driven by the desire to include multiple language support.
It’s worth noting that Western markets will likely have a more extensive list of games, since Sony said to expect 400 PS4 and PS5 games, and the Japanese list currently includes around 300.
Sony also said to expect around 340 classic games, and Japan’s list currently includes around 250.
PlayStation Plus’s new Essential, Extra and Premium tiers are expected to launch in the Americas on June 13, and in Europe on June 22.
For PS Plus Essential, which is the standard PS Plus tier similar to what is available today, new ‘free’ games will continue to be added on the first Tuesday of each month.
