The new PlayStation Plus has already started working in France and the rest of European countries. With the Premium Membership, gamers have the ability to access a select catalog of video games from previous consoles. However, as previously published, many PSX titles are based on the PAL version at 50hz, that is to say a slower standard (the one that was in force on the Old Continent). Now Sony has announced that it will add NTSC (60Hz) options in the future.
“We plan to release NTSC options for most classic games offered in PlayStation Plus Premium and Deluxe in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.” they posted on Twitter. Sony did not provide a specific date to materialize these plans.
We plan to roll out NTSC options for the majority of classic games offered on PlayStation Plus Premium and Deluxe plans in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. More PlayStation Plus information:

By surprise, Sony presented an unexpected game for PSP. Super Stardust Portable was not listed as one of the titles in the catalog, although the idea was that new games would be added gradually.
