European Playstation Store to get Japanese and American PSOne Classics

on August 1, 2011 1:30 PM

Today the Playstation.blog announced that Japanese and American PSOne classics will soon be sold on the European Playstation Store, allowing European fans to enjoy many of those titles that were published only in Japan or in the US before. Xenogears comes to mind, for instance.

Titles provided in this new “import” service will come “as is”, meaning that no further localization will be provided, and will require a 60 hz TV or screen to be played.

No actual titles or dates have been provided yet.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
