As for what we can expect from the future from this Preservation team, they’re sure to start focusing on the older PlayStation titles coming to the PS Plus Premium service. Several titles are already reportedly readying up for the new service, with Syphon Filter games recently being rated in Korea.
With preservation now officially on the table for PlayStation, this opens up a realm of possibilities in terms of older franchises, so it’s sure to be a hit with the platform’s fans from earlier generations.
