Fallout 4 – technically an Xbox game (pic: Bethesda)

Sony’s revamp of PS Plus has gone live in Japan and it’s got a much bigger range of games, including some from the Microsoft-owned Bethesda.

It seems fair to say that the initial launch of the new, three-tiered PS Plus service in Asia did not go particularly well for Sony, with reports of poor emulation and frequent crashes.

Even without those problem though there’s been considerable concern at the lack of retro titles for PS Plus Premium, the most expensive of the three tiers, with very few PS1 games and almost no PlayStation 2 titles.

Different regions will have different games available though and Japan is being treated differently to the rest of Asia. It didn’t see the service go live until Wednesday, June 1 but once it did news of an expanded line-up of games emerged, that has some surprising inclusions.

You can see the full list of Japanese titles below (as translated by Google – the original list is here), which is looking a lot healthier than that for the rest of Asia. However, it is likely to be substantially different compared to what will be available in the West, especially anything that was originally only released in Japan.

Arguably, the most surprising inclusions are several Bethesda PlayStation 3 and 4 games, including The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, Fallout 4, Doom (2016), and Wolfenstein: New Order.

That’s unexpected because Microsoft now owns Bethesda, but apparently has no objection to the games appearing on Sony’s service.

Other new additions include a number of Resident Evil games, as well as additional first party titles such as The Last Guardian, Knack, and Africa.

Early reports reveal that the PS1 games are the superior 60Hz NTSC versions, rather than the poorly converted 50Hz PAL versions which the rest of Asia has been lumbered with, and which are also likely to be used in Europe.

Streamed PlayStation 3 games are not available in the rest of Asia, so those below are all new and it’s going to be interesting to hear what the performance is like with those.

Although the list of games is much longer than for Asia, it’s still around 100 short of the 400 PlayStation 4 and 5 titles promised for PS Plus Extra. Sony also originally promised around 340 retro titles, but in Japan the total is currently only around 250.
