Art from PS1 classic Dino Crisis has appeared on the Hong Kong PSN store, suggesting that the game may be included in PlayStation Plus Premium’s library of classic games in the future.
As spotted by Twitter user DarkClong, an image on the Hong Kong version of the PlayStation Plus menu shows Regina from Dino Crisis on the Classics Catalogue tab.
Dino Crisis isn’t included in the current line-up of classic games, however, but has claimed that the offering will be expanding in the future.
Dino Crisis was released on PS1 on October 29, 1999, while Dino Crisis 2 came to the console a year later on November 24, 2000. Neither game is currently part of the PS Plus classic games offering.
PS1 emulation on PS5 - first look at Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
The revamped PlayStation Plus has now launched in much of Asia, and is coming to Japan, the Americas and Europe in June.
A number of PS1 games have already been confirmed for the service, including Tekken 2, Ape Escape, Jumping Flash, Mr Driller and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee.
However, some classic PlayStation games being added to the catalogue appear to be based on the slower PAL 50hz versions.
A user playing the PSOne version of Ape Escape via the Indonesian PS Store first noticed that it appears to be based on the PAL version of the game, because it credits Sony Computer Entertainment Europe during its intro (instead of America or Japan) and runs at 25fps instead of 30fps.
All other first-party PSOne games on the “Classics” line-up, including Everybody’s Golf, Wild Arms, Jumping Flash and Kurushi, also appear to be based on the European PAL versions, VGC has confirmed.
Unconfirmed reports have claimed that upgrade options for Sony’s new PlayStation Plus subscription service unfairly punish some players.
Following the Asian launch of the revamped PS Plus service on Monday, some claims have emerged from players who purchased existing memberships using a discount or chose to stack subscriptions before the option was disabled earlier this month.
Among the complaints being levelled at Sony, it’s claimed that players who purchased their existing subscription using a discount are being charged extra to upgrade to a different PlayStation Plus tier, wiping out any previous saving.
