What upgrades is Sony bringing to classic PlayStation games?

PlayStation Plus' Classics Catalog brings a host of upgrades for emulated PlayStation titles, allowing for improved regional emulation as per the Ape Escape PS Plus update. You can expect most PS1 and PSP titles to showcase the upgrades listed below; PS3 games are currently streamed in their original quality, so do not will see most of these benefits. At present, no PS2 games exhibit these exact upgrades either, as each PS2 title so far has been a direct port to natively run on PS4 hardware.

PlayStation classic game upgrades

  • Improved frame rates than the original launch version
  • Higher-quality resolution than the original launch version
  • Certain PS1 and PSP classics will have "a new user interface with menus that allow you to save your game at any time, or even rewind the game if you want a do-over."
  • A majority of the EU PS1 classic games will receive the superior NTSC versions

What if you already owned a PS1, PS2, or PSP Classic?

Previous owners of the digital version of the games that come to the service will get a free digital download of the game without the need to be logged in to PS Plus. Sony has stated: "When these titles are released for PS4 and PS5, players can head to PlayStation Store and download a version for the consoles at no extra cost if they already own the digital version of the title. Some of the titles will also be available for individual purchase."

Some PS Plus subscribers have experienced issues when they try to download these PS1 Classics. The issues have impacted both Tekken 2 and Syphon Filter in the past, though it seems to be resolved now.

Are there trophies for old PS1, PS2, and PSP games?

Bend Studio confirmed PS1 games can have trophy integration and we've seen a number of PS1 games with trophies since. The first PSP game on PS Plus with a platinum and trophy support was Pinball Heroes in December 2022. Since then, Sony has been retroactively adding trophies to all of its Classics Catalog games. If you're looking for easy platinum trophies, we've also graded these PS Plus classic trophies on how hard they are. Check out the full list of PS1 and PSP games that currently have trophy support on PS Plus Premium below.
