In Japan, PS Plus games use the higher NTSC 60Hz format

Of course, it does look like those of us in Europe may be saddled with the slower 50Hz versions, which would still be a massive own goal – especially if the Japanese giant doesn’t provide us with the option to choose. Some hastily released patches in Asia attempted to alter the 50Hz code to 60Hz recently, introducing ick-inducing ghosting as a result. So, while there’s good news for Japan, Sony still has its work cut out with the emulated games that are part of its most expensive tier – don’t expect this issue to just disappear.

Sony’s choice to distribute inferior PAL 50Hz versions of its PS1 games with PS Plus Premium drew a lot of criticism, but now that the service has started in Japan, there is finally some good news: important titles like Ape Escape will be released using NTSC 60Hz ROMs. This was to be expected, given that they’re the only Japanese language versions of the games accessible, but it might be beneficial for those of you in North America, where NTSC was also the norm.
