Although PS Plus Premium won’t launch in North America until June 13, it’s rolling out across Asia today. This led to further revelations, such as the inclusion of more PS1 and PSP games on PS Plus (namely ridge runner 2 and Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey), and more. A game trial list for PS Plus Premium has also leaked online, and beyond that, many are looking to Asian titles to see what to expect when it launches next month.
One thing to keep in mind is that certain areas may or may not have access to certain titles. It’s still not a bad metric to assess, but it’s something to keep in mind. Still, some fans are thrilled at the reveal of another PS1 title on PS Plus Premium, Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescueas noted by Redditor NonGetGudPlayer.
It’s worth noting that the game received mixed and/or average reviews at launch, but that’s not saying much compared to the nostalgia. Many fans are undoubtedly nostalgic for this game, because it is related to the toy story 2 film. Players start at Andy’s, Woody gets robbed, and Buzz, Hamm, Rex, Slinky Dog, and Potato Head all have to save him. They will explore several places seen in the toy story 2 film, such as Al’s Toy Barn, Al’s penthouse, and the airport terminal.
While many will likely wait to see the full list of PS Plus Premium games before deciding whether or not to subscribe, it’s worth noting that several of the titles currently circulating are warmly welcomed. In fact, it seems to be encouraging some fans to hope for more classic games on PS Plus. As seen above, for example, Redditor NonGetGudPlayer was excited about this but also hoped Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time!
Another Redditor was quick to express hope that Mickey’s Wild Adventure will be there too. With the importance of video game preservation over the past couple of years, it looks like PS Plus Premium has a ton of potential to preserve these nostalgic titles and give fans a way to play them. Of course, it’s not all older titles either.
PS1, PS2, PSP and PS3 titles are certainly welcome, but many PS4 and PS5 titles will be available to PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Premium subscribers. PS Plus has a launch library of over 700 games, so chances are everyone will find something they want.
PS Plus Premium releases June 13.
