Sony has made many fans happy with the overhaul of the PlayStation Plus program. So now retro fans are also offered a lot. So far, however, the European versions of the games have had one disadvantage. This has now been fixed.
PlayStation: Fixed a major issue for PS Plus subscribers
Sony’s new PS Plus program was launched in the summer. Instead of just one version, there are now three options when subscribing. PlayStation Plus Premium grants you, for example Access to 340+ PlayStation classics from the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP era.
From the outset, it was noted that many of these games would run in 50Hz PAL versions and 20 percent slower than the 60 Hertz NTSC version used in the United States and other regions. After receiving criticism for this, Sony promised to work on an option to switch to 60 Hz – this function is now available with the release of Siphon Filter 2 (source: VGC).
Sony had already announced in the past that there would be NTSC options in Europe, among other things for most classic games from the PlayStation Plus Premium and Deluxe subscription.
The PlayStation 5 now offers more resolution options:
