Some of the classic PlayStation games from PS Plus are PAL versions

The new and revamped PlayStation Plus is now available in Asia and as part of the launch, several of the classic games included in the subscription service are also available for individual purchase. However, some gamers have noted that several of the classic games are based on their slower 50hz PAL versions. Video Games Chronicle reports.

The PAL versions were first noticed by an Indonesian user playing the PlayStation 1 version of Ape Escape, who noted that the game credited Sony Computer Entertainment Europe instead of America or Japan. The game also runs at 25fps instead of 30fps.

Playing now: New PlayStation Plus games revealed and classic games confirmed so far | GameSpot News

VGC reports that all of the PlayStation’s own games in the Classics catalog of the Deluxe PS Plus level are based on European PAL versions. Some third-party games, including Worms, World Party, and Armageddon titles, are also PAL versions, while other games such as Tekken 2, Abe’s Oddysee, Siphon Filter, and Mr. Driller are available in NTSC format.

While Indonesia is a region that uses the PAL format, it has been confirmed that PAL versions of the games are also distributed in Taiwan, a region that has always used NTSC.

This problem has come up before with re-releases of classic PlayStation games, with many of the games on the PlayStation Classic console using the PAL editions of the games, even when released in North America. Sony never gave an explanation as to why the PAL versions were used, which are slower than the 60Hz NTSC format.
