The first available PlayStation One games have been tested on PlayStation 5 ahead of the PS Plus re-launch, and the emulation appears to be quite good.

Ahead of the launch of Sony’s revamped PS Plus service, the first few games have started surfacing on the official Malaysian PlayStation Store. As already revealed by Sony, some of these titles appear to be available for individual purchase, including Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Worms Armageddon, and Worms World Party. Ridge Racer 2 for the PSP, however, isn’t available for individual purchase outside of the PS Plus Premium tier.

Following the arrival of these titles on the Asian PlayStation Store, these classic games were tested running on PlayStation 5 by YouTuber ‘MysticRyan’, and emulation of these games seems better than most had initially expected. Clearly, emulation on Sony’s console isn’t on the same level as modern PSOne PC emulators (Retroarch, Duckstation) just yet, but it’s pretty good nonetheless. Features for these games include optional trophies, rewind, save states, and various video filters, including different video presets (default, retro, modern), and aspect ratios.
