250°
178w ago - Today SCEE's Ross McGrath of the Sony PlayStation Store Team has confirmed that NTSC-J and NTSC-U PSOne Classics are being prepared to hit the European PSN Store.

To quote: I am very pleased to confirm that US and Japanese PSone emulations are being prepared for release on the SCEE PlayStation Stores.

While I cannot yet confirm dates or any of the titles in process at this time, there are a few that are already in process and you will start to see them publishing in the future.

What does this mean for you, the consumers?

Here are the key points:

• 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...

• Streets of Rage 2 - free for Plus users on May 4th, released onto PS Store on May 18th

Twisted Metal 2 comes from the mind of David Jaffe and takes gamers deeper into the destruction of Calypso's Twisted Metal tournament. Along with these classics, we are discounting two new import titles, Blockids and Dezaemon Plus, and offering a free download of Vector TD, a tower defense from the minis collection.
