  1. People have the silliest takes ever. First nobody "batted an eye" about it, now it's "Okay but why would you keep complaining about a thing you don't like when it happens on a large scale erasing three platforms of digital games from existence?" Gee, I wonder. Maybe.. just maybe, it's because people don't like it? Which is why people have complained about digital/delisting for years... and why they continue to do so. Why do people struggle so hard when people act consistently? You're finding a way to complain that people who don't like delisting are still not liking it when it happens on a grand scale... as if that's somehow interesting. You want to talk about people and being "so surprised" by the obvious, look in the damn mirror. A few of the PSone games are expensive to buy used/physically now. And that's not even factoring in that some of those will end up looking like they were scraped along gravel and put in a wood chipper and sold as "fair" and "like new" condition.
  2. lol, people have complained about delisting for many many years idk where you’ve been.
  3. Maybe because Sony stopped having sales for the platforms. And clearly didn’t communicate or care about addressing lack of price drops on old games on said platforms. They’re all things Sony can address by talking with their content partners instead of just shrug and focus on PS4 and now 5. my 200th plat was on PS3. Last time I played PS3 was April of last year a TMNT game. And wrapped up LBP Vita before the end of last year (at least plat wise). I’d play a hell of a lot more PS3 games if PS5 could play the damn things through b/c. and really free online when most games have been shut down? Lol. I still get free online on PC.
  4. Lol, not if you don’t want to pay full price for a lot of them with shifty publishers and the complete lack of motivation on Sony’s part to fix it or continue sales promotions for that content. I could buy entire series on Steam over decades of running for cheaper than some of the shit I was waiting for a sale on, but Sony already got rid of our wish lists on the webstore and ability to buy them there so into the ether they went never to be seen again. And soon they will simply cease existing all together.
  5. Not really, people want to pay them for older games and they say...... “nah”. it’s just shortsighted buffoonery. This sends a message to all, “We don’t care about our ecosystem. Do not invest in our ecosystem. We will fuck you in the ass if you invest in PlayStation.” No thank you. It’s like when they made PS Now only work on two fucking things, a PS4 or PC (which they don’t update much). Streaming only works when it’s easily accessible dumb dumbs. That’s why when people talk about game streaming nobody mentions Ps Now. Nobody factors it into the conversation despite being the first push of it. Just farting along.
  6. It’s a nightmare on Vita in particular since it takes awhile to load and you have to start over each time you download something. it also displays everything even things you can’t use on Vita... at least with the web store you could get a slightly less tedious way to go through the trash heap that is the download list. I guess rather than fix it they just make it so we don’t want to use it at all. all the web store being fucked did was make me spend significantly less on PS Store and significantly more on PC (Steam). you want me to invest more into your service you don’t even support? Pass. Other than exclusives (which are shrinking up, and I’m not paying $10 more for any), I don’t even really care anymore. I’ll buy multiplats on PC instead. I like trophies still, but I can’t be bothered to support Sony’s horse shit. Game preservation is important to me and I like places like Steam and GOG which carry games from even as far back as the 90s.
  7. So you think Sony is going to support the native stores forever? they already forgot they shut down the PSP’s store in the emails they sent out about ditching these platforms for the new trash heap that is the web store, telling people you can still access the content via the native stores. PSP included in the list in spite of it having been shut down already. whether it’s this specific rumour or not, these stores are not long for this world. It’s happening, just a matter of when.
  8. I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s going to happen eventually, sooner than later. The web store dropping these games and systems is proof they give zero fucks about people who invest in the PlayStation platform and especially the Network. Whether or not this rumour is true, it’s going to happen and it’s stupid. Webstore would let them keep them up for as long as the licenses exist, but fuck you I guess. Digital is the future!
  9. So cool they did it. I wish it were more common. Now I’m glad I bought it again on Steam, even though I got the achievement before closure and news they’d update it. Good behaviour deserves rewarding.
  10. They're currently on Steam published by Shiravune and DMM Games. idk which role each has, Steam is confusing at times when it lists multiple publishers. From looking at it a bit, it looks like DMM Games might be the Japanese side of things while Shiravune are the English side of things. Both games came out in January last year on Steam, and Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen has come out today published by them. If you're specifically out for these games, they're on PC as I mentioned above.
  11. No, it’s the same. Games just get easier when you’ve played them (or similar games) before. It is less painful thanks to quick loading vs PS3. The more you play something the easier it becomes. That’s why Crushing in Uncharted is always my easiest play though. I play through on normal and then hard first.
  12. I had the same problem with it not saving a few of the memories I played.
  13. Well it’s stupid it was ever an online feature at all. Vendettas act similarly to those player graves in Nioh, and in Nioh there are also NPC graves to spoof what you’d experience online. They could have developed the game like that to have offline spoofed “vendettas” and the online ones. Even Knack 2 used this for the treasure having NPC’s to pick items from if you had no friends who played. curious now it’ll work and if it will truly work.
  14. 125 reviews is a lot for a random indie game in a sea of them... do you use Steam often? Because it's not uncommon for them to have less than 10 reviews for years. Bet you've heard of Ratalaika, and they have barely any reviews of their games on Steam. Only one I see with over 100 is Devious Dungeon. Most are less than 50, InkSplosion or w/e has less than 10. Even games older than Devious Dungeon have less reviews. I think a better example of it being for attention is just pointing to the writing in the game itself. There's some dialog about people who complain about games manga they will never buy and play read.Actually I'll just post the screenshots I saw. It's so on the nose and so fitting to the situation it's silly. Almost like people should do a bit of research into something before knee jerk reactions based entirely on assumptions. That way they can have an argument that's not shit, but who cares about that. Feelings~ Regardless, the entire purpose of throwing "that's sexist" and "learn to draw women" is to associate it with being bad. Being sexist is bad, everyone already knows this, the entire point of trying to label people sexist is to alter their behavior and control what they can and cannot do. You're either naive or being purposefully obtuse about that. You don't have to directly call for the removal or censorship of something for that to be your end goal. "I'm not saying it has to be removed or changed, just that if you do that you're a horrible person and endangering women!" You should see what some of those deleted replies were.
