Sony will not be tossing random retro releases on its priciest PS Plus Premium subscription tier! New correspondence from the company confirms that the 340 additional games added to the most expensive membership will comprise a “catalogue of beloved classic games” from the PS1, PS2, and PSP era. These will be available to download or stream. As previously reported, PS3 games will also be included, but will support streaming only.

The platform holder’s still being frustratingly secretive when it comes to PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium’s game lineup. However, a collection of Syphon Filter games were recently rated for the PS5 and PS4, making their inclusion a certainty. Hopefully the platform holder is not stretching the definition of “beloved classic games” with its wording here – we’re expecting all killer and very little filler, please.

There’s still no word on whether this will be a mere ROM dump or if Sony’s emulation will come with additional features, like save states and potentially even rewind. Cross your fingers and hope for the best, we guess.
