New PS1/PSP Classics Run In PAL Format And Cost $14.95 When Purchasing Outside Of PlayStation Plus In Australia

If you're not joining the new PlayStation Plus

The new PlayStation Plus launched in Australia this morning and with it brought a bunch of new PlayStation Classics such as Ape Escape, Syphon Filter, Tekken 2, Toy Story 2 and Resident Evil Director’s Cut to name a few.

If you’re not wanting to subscribe to the new PlayStation Plus then all of these PS1/PS2/PSP Classics are available to purchase separately for $14.95. If you had purchased these games previously on PS3/PSP digitally, you should have access to them for free, even if you’re not subscribed to the new PlayStation Plus.

Unfortunately, as expected, these games run in the inferior PAL mode instead of NTSC, which is to be expected given we’ve always had games run in PAL, but there was a little hope after the US PlayStation Plus added the NTSC versions of these games.
