Some Of PS Plus’s Classic PlayStation Games Are PAL Versions

The new, revamped PlayStation Plus is now available in Asia and as a part of the rollout, a number of the classic games included in the subscription service are also being made available for individual purchase. However, some players have noticed that a number of the classic games are based on their slower, 50hz PAL versions, Video Games Chronicle reports.

The PAL versions were first noted by an Indonesian user playing the PlayStation 1 version of Ape Escape, who noted that the game credited Sony Computer Entertainment Europe instead of America or Japan. The game also runs at 25fps instead of 30fps.

VGC reports that all first-party PlayStation games in the Deluxe PS Plus tier’s Classics catalog are based on European PAL versions.
