That's all gibberish to me. I don't know PAL vs. NTSC.
Don't know for sure, but I've always known NTSC as what we are familiar with in the US while PAL was in other countries, so not something we would normally be familiar with.

NTSC was 60Hz. PAL was 50Hz.

I think NTSC was like 540P, while PAL was 480P also.

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.

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.

Just buy a rpi 3 for cheap and play all the ps1 games with better emulation than the pos s*** they have right now.
Day one first party is the only thing potentially saving this DOA service.

kinda sucks that ps1 games are behind pay walls, probably some licensing issues between Sony and Pubs, hopefully later down the line some or all get passed down to those who just want to play a game

I have absolutely no idea how much I'll be paying for the highest tier next week. My PS Plus subscription is yearly, btw.

This could be pretty good if they/when they improve the classic lineup. The PS1/2/P list is barren.

For your reference


Yeah not really anything more there for me. So..

Days Gone.
Death Stranding
Spider-Man MM
Ghost iof Tshima

Is it.

Might give Uncharted another chance. Is the Nathan Drake collection a remastered set or just a BC set of games?

Here are your new PlayStation Plus membership details:
  • You're part of PlayStation Plus Essential
  • Your next payment will be $59.99 on 2022-06-09
  • After this your payments will be every 12 months

I like getting an email 4 days after I was supposed to be billed with no reminder ahead of time. Thankfully I removed all methods of payment from their site late last year.
