  • I really hope Sony is working on some kind of backwards compatibility solution with PS5, but so far, they haven't provided any hints this is happening, which means emulation, jailbreaking, and physical media will be the only way to access PS3/PSP/PSVITA games you haven't purchased already.

    • You can buy the games and play them on the console that is still available now. Asking sony to carry old games forward for your convenience is ridiculous. Just like the old days of Nintendo and Sega if you didn't have the game that was the end and you had to find the game through 3rd party. The games are not gone they're just not available on a store front which they barely were in the times of these consoles as digital was just getting it's legs.

  • Sony is making this a problem so ultimately they have to come up with a solution. I wish all the games would be free but even then they wouldn't be available forever, also the devs don't really care and they haven't made this problem but Sony did.

  • Jim Ryan is a horrible boss. Not only he disrespects classic games, he spits in the face of every player who grew up with those games. Those games is what made the ps1, ps2, ps3, psp, and Vita so memorable. Sony is back with ps3 era arrogance.

  • Just what in the world is going on with Japanese Publishers like Nintendo or Sony? How can they feel that it's not worth the effort to keep games available for purchase? Like, I get it, some Games use Licensed Cars, Music etc. but why can't they offer a way to play old Games on new Hardware? Because they're afraid that less people will buy new games? Look at Microsoft then. Has it hurt them? Has it hurt their Sales? I don't think it has, if anything I think it has even boosted sales. Hell, I'm afraid Microsoft could hold a Monopoly some time in the future with how aggressively they're purchasing Publishers, Apps, Developers and their Game Pass because they'll just leave Sony in the Dust. What in the world are we supposed to do when Sony some day in the future decides to just shut down all Online Servers for older Consoles. Even many physical copies won't be playable then because you can't patch them anymore or have to rely on hacked consoles with community servers. What an absolute Shitshow..

  • A few years ago I was at a local Sears (about 2 years before it closed) and I noticed two men in different uniforms than the regular employees, cataloging all the video games they had for sale. They systematically went through every item, jotting down numbers on their clipboards. It was an odd sight. I asked them what they were doing and they told me that corporate sending them around the stores to catalog stock as Sears was outright eliminating its video game section nationwide because of what's coming. I asked them what they meant by that and they told me that eventually games are moving to fully digital games where stores can no longer sell physical games, just the hardware like systems, controllers, and customers would have to rebuy their games with each new generation/console. I was shocked. It looks like with the arrival of the current-gen digital-only systems, we are quickly moving into games as a service and physically owning games will be a thing of the past. This sucks.

  • “...they looked ancient, like why would anybody play this?” - Jim Ryan, Sony’s Head of Global Sales. Gamers. Why do you think people jump at the chance to play remastered titles? They love games for being just that; Games. A game can look like absolute shit but if it’s fun people will play. Minecraft, Roblox, and any classic on any old console will hold the hearts of gamers forever. If you merged all three stores into one and gave a new piece of hardware the ability to play all of them; you would have the fattest money maker in your company’s history. Hell, put PS1 and PS2 games up for sale and people will fork over cash just to play their favorite games on convenient and modern hardware. You just smacked every Sony fan across the face and proved that you don’t give a damn. Now people will emulate and buy pre-owned copies; you won’t get a cent. Your stupidity will lose you money and maybe even lose you loyal customers. Betrayal is the ultimate customer repellent.

  • I can't blame then. Those stores will most likely make barely any profit by now and they have no obligation to preserve those games. You also don't expect BMW or Ford to still make new spare parts for cars from the 90s or 00s. And people would have already bought the games they would want for those consoles and if you didn't, you most likely didn't care as much about the as you thought.

  • 3:10 That's something we don't have to worry about YET. The reason the fear is real is because that's something they can legitimately do, and consumers have zero recourse against it. Eventually, it will happen. Digital may be convenient, but I've been going more and more back to physical media where I can. They can't take it away from me if it's neatly put away with the rest of my collection of games. (Except for DRM always-online, and DLC-only content, I guess..)

  • There are so many games that are going to be lost forever by official means if Sony doesn't pull the stick out of their ass about backwards compatibility. We're going to lose Metal Gear Solid 1 and VR Missions, The Classic Resident Evil Trilogy, The Original versions of the Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, Silent Hill 1, Castlevania Symphony of The Night, Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops, Every PS2 game that isn't available on PS4 right now, Mega Man Powered Up & Maverick Hunter X, Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core, A dozen of fantastic Licensed games that are being ignored by publishers simply because they're licensed games. If Sony wants to remain great, they have to remember where they started and not erase the path they took to get where they are. Emulation is something I tried once, but it's too much of a narrow road to get it working properly without destroying my computer. I'm sure e-pirates would reconsider pirating if Sony offered a way to play old games conveniently on newer hardware, but since they're not presenting that option, The Seven Digital Seas looks more promising as a result. Meanwhile we have Xbox who figured out how to add backwards compatibility to the Xbox One post launch and keep adding more 360 and Xbox original games to play on One and Series X/S

  • Here's what's weird: vouchers will stil work, PS+ will still work, cross-buy will still work. We'll still have access to anything we already bought (for now). We just won't be able to buy anything, which doesn't make any sense. All the data will still exist, right? All the functionality will be intact, correct? What's up with that? What is this weird, seemingly arbitrary decision? The PlayStation Store is up and will be up (it has to for PS4 and PS5), and it's the exact same service. The old version of the store worked fine too, until couple of days ago. And there you could buy PS3/P/Vita content no problem. Why not just leave that up? The fact that they're not even talking about it more publicly makes it all even worse. It's like they're saying "hey, fuck you" instaed of making an actual decision that makes sense. At least put everything on a big sale, that would be nice.
