  • Really hoping this is just some server issue and not Sony actually disabling the ability to download PS3 patches for games you already own, but they haven't said anything yet.

  • Lol why does everyone think it's Sony's job for game preservation. It's a thing that started with pirates and the try to justify it as "Game Preservation". Sony Nintendo Sega Microsoft Never think about game preservation. It's not their job. There are enough pirate groups on the net already doing it. As for patches. You can download those too. Stop crying about it. It's always been like this. Why would would those companies support patches 15, 20 plus years old. Oh well if you don't have the know how to jailbreak your old systems then too bad for you. Learn something g and do it yourself. A

A note to all ME fans, if you bought the original Mass Effect digitally as I did when the trilogy edition was released but own 2 & 3 on disc, make sure do download updates for ME2 otherwise you cannot import your ME1 save and will have to rely on Genesis.

  • Also remember, many games do not let you use saves created on newer versions. GT5 is an example. If like me, you have hundreds of hours put into the game, with the save linked to the latest patch, you can no longer use your save if you can't update the game. Sony can suck it as far as I'm concerned. With Sony bringing many of its 'exclusives' to Steam, I'm finally free to move fully to PC next gen. I'm done with the console gaming BS!

  • I'm not getting a good vibe from Sony with all the bad and worrisome press lately. I have been a Playstation fanboy for generations, and to be honest, I'm strongly leaning towards XBOX these days. I was lucky to have purchased a PS5, but the truth is, I'm thinking about wanting a Series X more than the PS5 I bought. That should be a big concern to Sony because I have a feeling I'm not the only one leaning more towards XBOX.

He creates a sense that everything is going downhill, when in reality it’s opposite of that. Focusing too much on the bad news will make you think that and that’s what he relies on for views. As you can see he has developed a community that are extremely pessimistic and will come at you with full force if you are even remotely suggesting the opposite of the consensus. Be warned that this entire channel is one big echo chamber.

  • I had actually been planning on buying an old ps3 in order to play the R&C collection and various other games, but what's the point now. i just hope they make some effort to move titles onto the newer systems, it always sucks when games you played years ago can no longer be reliably obtained or played.

  • Meanwhile, all my offline consoles and games work perfectly. It just doesn't seem wise to continue investing money into video games. You will be forced to purchase the same games over and over, if they even become available for purchase again, in order to continue playing it. They look at it as a loss if you, a customer, simply buy a game and then own a game and no longer pay for that game. It's all in service to the games-as-a-service model, moving toward a future where you pay constant recurring fees to stream content that you can never own. You will play what is made available for you to play and nothing else, and you will pay all of your money for the privledge. I do not accept the terms of their offer, and my counter-offer doesn't actually require their acceptance. People have been far too lenient on these companies.

  • For my prospective it stupid by knowing PSP, PS3 and PS Vita started the downloaded content like PS2 started online gaming The biggest problem with the PlayStation Store being shut down on PSP, PS3, and PS Vita is going to cost Sony a lot people and money because the biggest fear for Sony is that most people will leave and go to Nintendo and Microsoft Xbox ,once it happens because PS4 and PS5 have no backwards compatible ability for PS1, PS2, PS3 game discs,PSP, and PS, Vita game titles

None of this is problem for the user if they take the appropriate actions. This isn't a defense or offense towards sony it just the result of this action. Homebrew scene is going to boom and this is only good for user support functionality / accessibility in the long run. I think I understand the issues here but I don't see the problem.

  • You guys realize PS3 is a 15 year old console, right? If playing old games on PS3 is a big deal for you for some reason, just buy physical copies. Pretty much every PS3 game costs a few Dollars at most or you can jailbreak the device if you don't even want to pay that. It's pointless to expect a 15 year old tech device to stay fully functional and supported after 15 years.

    Gun Murat IlbanGun Murat IlbanMåned siden
    • The PS3 had plenty of games that were released on physical copies, but still require patches to play the good version of the game and play online. It's even worse with PS4, many games have 50GB day-1 patches and games that require patches to just play the game at all.
