Reversal: PS3, Vita, And PSP Stores To No Longer Close Permanently

2,376 posts in this topic

Is there anywhere a decent list that shows digital only Vita and PS3 games?

I would liek to see what else, especially visual novels and jrpgs, I yet would like to buy before they are gone.

But trying to do that on the consoles themselves seems like a terrible idea...

Dumb me for not buying some of the Vita's visual novels that had been constantly on sale.

Guess I gotta list all of the PS3 dlcs, Vita, and PSP games that I plan to get.

So here's the real question...

 

Can I hack a console to download whatever games I want and still get trophies without a ban?

It’s forbidden to discuss this here but visit r/vitahacks on Reddit if you wish to hack your vita. It’s supposed to be safe.

 

in no way do I condone this.

 

I heard ps3 hacking gets you banned though.

Except that you won't. Not all of it anyway.

 

Case in point, I just bought the DLC for LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens on PS3. Season pass activates only a character pack in your download list. All level packs must be downloaded directly from the store. You own them, but they aren't going to show up in the download list. I'm sure there's innumerable other examples, that we just don't know about. And won't ever until it's too late.

 

So come June, is Sony going to refund that content that you own, but now can't download because they fucked up and the content isn't in a download list?

 

And, no one has yet answered - where is the download list on a Vita? Oh, right - in the fucking store.

 

No wait, seriously? That's not supposed to exist. There's something wrong with your list. I've 300+ owned games, the only DLC that you own and that you don't have to download are the licensed tied to your account under Services List.

 

However, i know of ONE DLC that you're forced to downlod from the PS4 Store, for a PS4 game. Benjamin's Flight for Thomas Was Alone. Also the Media Player app, if you try to get it from your library, it redirects you to the Store app for whatever reason.

 

I'm also still wondering why they disabled anything that's not a game or a demo from the new webstore Download List.

Welp, this is truly a sad day indeed. I had a feeling the rumour was true from the start so I'm not surprised, but still very disappointed.

 

There are so many games that are going to be lost, with the only way to obtain them via piracy or forking out for old physical PS1/PS2 games that will be gone from the only digital storefront they're available on come July/August.

 

And honestly, that's the thing that gets me the most; it's such short notice, I'd say it's honestly unacceptable, especially during a global pandemic.

 

Vita is barely even a decade old and they're killing off both its store and messaging system.

 

I can't believe Sony would do this after releasing a digital only PS5. I imagine plenty won't care about this news and buy one anyway, maybe because they know they won't be playing PS5 games a decade from now anyway, or they simply don't think that far ahead. Either way, it's going to just reinforce the fear in many people that digital is not forever.

 

Now I genuinely worry about how long it will be until other online services on these consoles are killed off. It will have been less than a year that they killed off the old games section from their new webstore, to shutting down the stores for those consoles completely. Who's to say it will only be another year that we can continue to sync trophies or access PS Plus cloud saves? I still doubt those will be going away anytime soon, but it is honestly really concerning. Sony is getting increasingly more and more anti-consumer, they've made it very clear that they really only care about immediate big sales nowadays. PS3 and Vita are clearly no longer profitable enough for them, despite undoubtedly still making enough profit to pay for their store servers at least twice over every week, so who's to say when they decide to pull the plug on these consoles completely.

 

I've been a fan of PlayStation since the PS1, and Sony has done loooooads of things to piss me off and disappoint me over the years, this is the first time they've done something that genuinely makes me feel "depressed", for lack of a better term. They're erasing so many games from history for the sake of "streamlining" their image and catering to those that only really seem to care about what's new and trendy. I know a single lifelong fan doesn't mean shit to Sony, they repeatedly shit on their legacy despite constantly bringing up their legacy to drum up nostalgia when it benefits them. I only hope all these games are being backed up elsewhere as we speak.

This is how I feel, truly sad... I even had tears (seriously), I've always loved PlayStation ever since I was a kid and it just makes me sad.

I wonder if they know what they're doing on Vita. You must access the Store app on Vita in order to access your Download List. Which is crap anyway, because once you download something, it sends you to the top of the list. Totally retarded. PS3 is a little better in that, but still.

I am guessing an update will follow, however I am as confused as you


Via PS3 I guess, like it is working now (download PSV version then transfer to PSV via PC).

there's no list but i'm going through the store right now to determine every game that is a digital only that has a plat attached and is easy enough to complete on vita and ps3.

I would like to know this as well. My entire PS3 collection is physical, and I have all but two of the Vita games I wanted to complete finished already, but I know there's probably some unknown gems out there I'll hear about later and wish I had grabbed. I'm looking for a list of PSN/Vita exclusives.

EDITED: AJ_-_808 is another one defending Sony and another one not having PS3/Vita games on his list on PSNProfiles, what a coincidence!
Why you people just won't pass by this thread if you don't give a damn about PS3 and Vita?

 

Dude, you're like a small child trying to argue completely irrelevant things, but since you're so hellbent on my ps3 profile, go look up @ajpaldino you twat.

No friggin' way. There were several PSOne Classics in that list. I'm not an idiot. I can't stand false accusations.

 

I didnt call you an idiot or make a false accusations. Just said "memory" doesnt serve as proof.  A few examples have popped up since then, so it seems you were indeed correct.  

 

This whole debate is now moot, it's now time to stock whatever pre-ps4 games and dlcs that have been on the back burner

The cross buy games have been for sure though.

Vita, supposedly yes, but you would definitely risk a ban doing so on PS3. 

 

Honestly, not much of a loss at this point. If Sony doesn't want to give a shit anymore and Jim Ryan wants to drive Playstation straight into Generic AAA City, no skin off my bones 🤷‍♂️

That's true, but if you look at them on the Vita store, they always list at full price. It's really strange. Obviously, I've never purchased one from there, but I wonder if you bought the game on the Vita, would it default to the PS4 price?

 

I remember picking up a game called "Dex" for something like $1.99 on the PS4 store, but it still listed at $19.99 on the Vita.

Not really immoral at this point if the products aren't going to be for sale anyway, it's like getting mad that someone ate a bag of Skittles you were gonna throw away

I doubt people would ever consider buying a digital only PS5 after this news.  I sure as hell am not buying one.

Vita homebrew scene, here I come.

They are just shifting towards their new audience, like dudes here that were defending Sony in this thread without even having a single PS3/Vita trophy cause they don't give a shit, mommy bought only PS4/PS5 for them.

Their new audience will be happy now, you and other loyal players who supported this company throughout their history until they got destroyed by Californian assholes in 2016 are not their audience anymore. It happens, but history is always changing, empires are falling... Damn I'm starting to sound too dramatic. Just choose what is best for you and play games for fun, cheers

Chill out, maybe people will finally start being distrustful towards digital only and we'll wind up getting everything on physical discs again. It's going to be a hard lesson for people to learn, but it had to happen sooner or later.
