New PlayStation Plus Game Stealth Released

Sony appears to have quietly added a new PlayStation Plus game for those who have subscribed to the Premium tier of the service. This game is Super wearable stardust, a game that PlayStation users may remember as the one originally released on the PlayStation Portable. This game has been enhanced with a few features that one would expect games to benefit from after making a platforming jump like this, but apparently you’ll have to pick it up yourself to find it in the catalog PlayStation Plus.

PlayStation Plus subscribers may consider this game a stealth release given that Sony didn’t do much about it and just dropped it into the catalog. Gamers like Reddit user TURB0_THUNDER noticed that it was released in the classic games section of the updated PlayStation Plus service. The games available through PlayStation Plus Premium differ depending on the region you’re playing in, but it’s at least available in North America (Eurogamer said it’s not yet available in Europe).

On the game’s PlayStation Store listing, Portable Super Stardust cannot be purchased directly, but Sony says there that it is indeed available through PlayStation Plus Premium. A brief description of the game states that it has been “enhanced with up-render, rewind, fast save and custom video filters” and has been converted from the PlayStation Portable version to a version for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, which means it might play a little differently than people who originally played it may remember. A brief description of the game was also offered there for those who may not have played it in the past.

“Defend five vulnerable planets from impending danger as you explode into manic shooting action,” reads a preview of the game. “Eliminate entire space fleets in two exciting game modes: Arcade and Planet.”

While any new PlayStation Plus game is a bonus for those who subscribed to the Premium tier, this addition has raised concerns among people who aren’t fans of how it was released. Those in the initial Reddit post where its inclusion was discussed pointed out that there was no decent way to search for these games through their native platforms and there was also no way simple to know it was added if PlayStation didn’t make it public.
