Some of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 1 and PSP titles started appearing on the Asian PlayStation Store. Currently, games like Ape EscapeMr. Driller, and Tekken 2 are exclusively available on the Hong Kong digital marketplace. While none of these are up for grabs on the Western PlayStation Store, we do have something to go off of on how much they may cost when they do become purchasable.

Of the retro games currently released, the prices run from HK$38 to HK$78. A quick monetary conversion shows that when the titles are brought over to the U.S. PlayStation Store they’ll most likely run from $5 to $10. There’s currently no indication of what dictates the variation in the cost of each game.

The games that are currently available on the Hong Kong PlayStation store include:

  • Ape Escape
  • Tekken 2
  • Mr. Driller
  • Disney Pixar Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!
  • Hot Shots Golf
  • I.Q.: Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Syphon Filter
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Wild Arms
  • Worms Armageddon
  • Worms World Party
  • echochrome

As revealed a bit early than expected, PlayStation is also bringing its trophy system to these classic titles. Of the games in this list, Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf, Intelligent Qube, Syphon Filter, and Wild Arms all have had their trophy lists released.

PlayStation owners can also get their hands on some of these games of the past with the new PlayStation Plus model. This new model is very similar to Xbox Game Pass, allowing subscribers to access a large library of both old and new games via PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles.

PlayStation 5 Slim: All rumors and speculation
A PS5 stands on a table.

It's at around this point in a console's life cycle that companies like to release a new, slim model to reinvigorate sales, cut costs, and experiment with a new design. Sony has been trimming down its home consoles since the PS2, with each home console getting a slimmer, sometimes cheaper replacement a few years after launch. We're closing in on the PlayStation 5's third birthday and rumors abound about both a PS5 Pro and a PS5 Slim model, and yet Sony's remained tight-lipped about any iterations on the base unit. Still, some of these rumors and potential leaks may hold some weight and are fun to follow regardless to see how accurate they end up being.
Will there be a PS5 Slim? Here's what we know
Before getting into the rumors and leaks, know that until Sony itself confirms the existence of a PS5 Slim, everything that follows is speculative and should be taken as such.

The first rumors of a new PS5 model centered around a diskless version that could be paired with a detachable disk drive you could buy separately in another step away from physical media. This was speculated to be coming out sometime in fall 2023, but has been rolled into the idea of the PS5 Slim. This potentially imminent release date also lines up with statements Microsoft made about a new PS5 Slim releasing this year for $400 during the Federal Trace Commission (FTC) hearing.

The best open-world games for PS5
A character sits in front of a glowing, yellow orb in Elden Ring.

Since its release in 2020, the PS5 has amassed a large library of experiences, from shooters to sports games, RPGs, and platformers, along with a wide variety of open-world adventures. While "open world" isn't necessarily a genre in and of itself, it's a style that millions of players have fallen in love with over the years. These days, open-world games are quite common, meaning the competition to grab your attention is much stiffer. And with the likes of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 down the pipeline, there will be plenty more to play in the future.

Despite this, there are so many fantastic open-world games available on the PS5. Some lean into horror, others send you to historical periods, while one, in particular, lets you explore the entire galaxy. There is no shortage of open-world games to play on PS5, and here, we'll go through all of the best ones to choose from.
