Recently Sony released the official launch date for PlayStation Plus and shared the full list of classic games the revamped service will offer. Now the company has confirmed that many of these fantastic games will come with a variety of display options and filters.
With these new display options, you can set the mood to feel like you were playing 20 years ago – the ultimate immersion! A passionate about ResetEra (as noted push square) noticed that all PS1 games from the upcoming PlayStation Plus service will feature these fun settings.
These games will support their native resolutions, allowing for 1:1, 4:3, and 16:9 resolutions, an expanded “Wide Zoom” option, and square pixels, even if you have a fancy OLED TV in your living room. You’ll also have the option to apply one of three visual filters for a more retro experience: Classic Retro, Modern, and Default.
Another user – Mystic, on YouTube – gave a breakdown of these new visual features. They noted that the Retro Classic is a CRT type filter (which is Great cool), and that the Modern and Default filters are similar, with the latter feeling brighter and sharper than the other.
However, these options don’t seem to apply to the service’s classic PSP games, or at least not yet. Since the new PlayStation Plus service won’t officially launch until June 13, there’s still plenty of time to add additional features (and for existing features to be adjusted). We’ve already seen two new games—ridge runner 2 and Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey-be added to the service since Sony announced the original lineup. Still, these display options are a fun and smart addition, and we can’t wait to see what the final product looks like.
