US and Japanese PSOne Classics coming to Europe via PSN

Posted By | On 01st, Aug. 2011

Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store team has confirmed that many Japanese and US PlayStation One classics will be making their way to European territories via the PlayStation Network, though no specific titles have yet been announced. Work on a few is “already in process”, though.

Here’s a guide Sony provided themselves to help you understand this better:

  • Publishers who own the rights to release PSone titles that were previously only available in the US and/or Japan will now be able to apply to have them released on the SCEE PlayStation Stores (providing they are rated by the appropriate ratings boards for each territory).
  • All titles will be published ‘as is’, with either English or Japanese language game content where available.
  • All titles will run at 60 Hz and you will need a 60 Hz capable display to play them properly.
  • This also means that if a PAL version of a title has been unable to pass QA in SCEE, but the NTSC version is already available on the PlayStation Store in SCEA or SCEJ, we can look at publishing that version instead. We cannot simply take the US version and publish it immediately, as it has to be reprocessed for SCEE, but at least we know the title should already be relatively bug-free.

Sony also added: “With this news in mind, we’d love to hear from you what titles you’d like to see available in Europe for the first time – make yourself heard in the comments and with the most requested titles we will speak to publishers on your behalf.”
