There’s no price attached to the PS Store listing at the time of writing, so it’s currently only available through the PS Plus Premium tier. Trophy tracking sites like Exophase and PSN Profiles haven’t caught a whiff of a Trophy list yet either. “Defend five vulnerable planets from incoming danger as you explode into some manic shoot ’em up action,” the PS Store listing explains. “Take out entire space fleets across two exciting game modes: Arcade and Planet.” First released on PSP in November 2008, Super Stardust Portable is an on-the-go version of Super Stardust HD.
Today saw the debut of PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The latter deployment saw the addition of a new title to the service’s highest tier. Super Stardust Portable, a PSP game, has been added as a vintage, digital pickup to the list of All PS Plus Games. It has gotten the typical PS5, PS4 improvements, such as up-rendering, quick save capabilities, and rewind.
With a Metacritic rating of 69, it’s by no means the best entry in the series. Although, since Super Stardust HD is a PS3 game that can only be streamed through PS Plus Premium, this portable version does represent the chance to play the franchise natively on PS5 and PS4.
