PlayStation Plus subscribers just got a huge free retro surprise

PlayStation Plus subscribers just got a huge free retro surprise

It's time to revisit some classics

In a pleasant surprise, Sony has implemented some changes to the classic retro titles available via PlayStation Plus, meaning lots of subscribers have a chance to try out new features.

Without much fanfare, it appears that PlayStation classic titles available via PlayStation Plus have just had an update perfect for trophy hunters.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater is getting the remake treatment and it looks wonderful

It turns out that several retro games have had platinum trophies added in, meaning that those who love the sound of that feature unlocking now have more games to chase the diamond trophy.

We’re used to first-party PlayStation games having these trophies available but this is the first time that third-party titles have added the functionality.

Up first are Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue, Toy Story 3, Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare, and Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus.

For many of these games, it won’t take long to snag that platinum trophy as all you’ll need to do is finish the game or hit the 100% mark.

It’s great to see more support for retro emulation coming from Sony and hopefully, these aren’t the only games to see this addition. It would be great to have this function added to classics like Tekken, Ridge Racer, or Metal Gear Solid.

This is huge news for trophy hunters who make these goals a big part of their gaming time. Ever since the release of both achievements and trophies, there have been players who want to unlock everything and, to be honest, that’s getting harder with so many games releasing each week.

Having the opportunity to revisit some banging classics and still chase a trophy at the end of it all is a wonderful addition. Let’s hope this is a direction Sony continues exploring as support for older games is such an important part of the industry today.
