Syphon Filter

Many Syphon Filter games have been rated for release in Korea, likely in preparation for the launch of PS Plus Premium in June. Reported by Gematsu, PS1 titles Syphon Filter and Syphon Filter 2 as well as PSP releases Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow have all received age ratings in the Korean region. They are for versions to be made available on PS5 and PS4, heavily suggesting this is tied to the upcoming relaunch of PS Plus.

Should all four games be rolled into PS Plus Premium, it means the only Syphon Filter titles missing would be the third mainline entry on PS1 and PS2 title Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain. However, the latter was a slight departure from the core series since you didn't play as classic protagonist Gabe Logan.

These Syphon Filter titles are the first ones to receive age ratings in the lead up to PS Plus Premium's launch. However, it's unclear whether every game included in the revamped service must undergo the age rating process once again. If that's the case, we should expect to see hundreds more in the near future. Roughly 340 PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3 games (the latter via streaming) are set to be included in the top tier, and handing age ratings to all of them in time for June seems like a tall order.
