Select PlayStation 1 titles that have been launched this week in Asian territories are believed to be based on the PAL versions, which is expected to be 50hz.
As shown in a new video on Twitter by @the_marmolade, the new version of Ape Escape does not perform as smoothly as the original NTSC version. This is quite baffling, considering Asian territories never used the PAL standard.
PS1 classics are using 50hz PAL versions instead of NTSC. NTSC PS1 feels much smoother than emulated version. pic.twitter.com/5q3kRn353h

One video from YouTube user andshrew shows how Ape Escape''s new PlayStation Plus version works at 50hz.
While not all classic PlayStation 1 titles are based on the PAL version, as games like Syphon Filter and Abe''s Odyssey are based on the NTSC versions, this is still defying, considering that all Sony Japan Studios'' games are based on the PAL versions.

The new PlayStation Plus service will be launched on June 13th in North and South America and on June 22nd in Europe. On the Official PlayStation Blog, you may find additional information about the new service.
