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

2,376 posts in this topic

I expected this tbh. It just sucks it's happening so soon. There's not too much I want out of these stores, but there is some DLC I need to get for some of my games. You would think they'd do a farewell sale but I don't see that happening.  At least there's people preserving these games in other ways.

I'm pretty sure most games currently online will still be online after July 2nd. If you have Resident Evil 6 on your trophy list then go ahead and buy the DLC. That's what I did for the games I already have trophy pages for and have plans to complete the multiplayer required trophies as soon as possible. 

 

That said, assuming you care about your completion rates, I'd avoid adding more trophy pages with multiplayer trophies for now if you can help it because who knows what's going to happen after the store goes down. 

Yes, im obsessed with my 100% rate, thats why I need to know before I even start RE6. 

I have 100% rate, check it out.

If we're gonna be able to re download any purchased game, this means that at least for now the PS3 servers will still be running... so I just don't understand why they have to shut down the store.

I'm afraid this is a first step to a full shutdown.

i did the math for the games i want. to get all the ones that are within reach and have a plat it would take about 531$ without sale (not including any games that will be permanently gone or price higher than 10$).

 

here's some more games that may go up in price or become permanently lost:

senran kagura estival versus (vita)
ar nosurge plus: Ode To an Unborn star (vita)
invizimals: The Resistance (vita)
mxgp the official motocross videogame (vita)
motogp 14 (vita)
invizimals: The Alliance (vita)
playstation vita pets (vita)
putty squad (vita)
wonderbook diggs nightcrawler (ps3)
wonderbook walking with Dinosaurs (ps3)
batman: Arkham origins blackgate (vita)
Killer Is Dead (ps3)
zone of the enders 1 HD edition (ps3)
counter-strike: Global Offensive (ps3)

Supposedly you need to add the PSV/PS3 downloads to your download list before the store is closed for the cross-buy to work, after that you cant add them even if the game supports it.

Yeah, it’s a bit of a weird one that PS3/Vita cross-plays apparently need to be in your download list BEFORE the shut down but PS4/PS3/Vita cross-plays don’t. Maybe newer cross-play titles work differently?

Exactly what i knew it would be, store only. I really don't see why many are mad and getting mad at Sony. The games are the same price they have been for years and would've been that price for many more, so if you want them buy them. You can't want them that much if you don't already have them

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.

A final 'closing down everything must go' style sale is all I want from this too but I agree that it probably won't happen. At the end of the day they'll probably make more money not doing it. Even just in this thread plenty of people have said they're gonna go and pick up a bunch of stuff before it's gone.

This has been happening gradually along the years and no one batted an eye, but yeah now it is on a bigger scale. Since a long time ago we have been hearing of delisting games, you can't found them on the store, you can't buy them but you can download them if you had it in your download list... So it will eventually happen to all your games, I would like to know how many games (%) were already delisted that people didnt even know...

Unless you actually enjoy the Resi Evil PVP style stuff I'd just not get the DLC and play the game on an alt account. The DLC sucks pretty bad and is really boring to 100%. Just my take of course ;)

So...just going to throw this out there, because I’m not sure if anyone has yet, but does anyone think if we (on this site and elsewhere) send enough complaints to Sony support/blow this up on SM we could get them to put off the closing of the stores for awhile longer? 

 

We’re in the middle of a freaking pandemic FFS, and such short warning would be unacceptable even in normal times. Didn’t Nintendo give a year’s notice for the Wii (which had significantly less digital content)? 

 

@AwkwardFantasy just another reason this is happening far too quickly. I can’t imagine devs that are still developing games for the Vita are happy about this at all. Especially if the games were going to be predominantly (or only) digital releases.

Never say never, although my gut feel is that they’re well aware of how pissed off people are / were going to be when they hit send on today’s e-mail. After all, it’s already been kicking off for a week

So how do I add Danganronpa 1 & 2 (Vita) to the cart on PS3. Do I have to buy a Vita just to buy these

It seems sony gave indie devs absolutely no heads up about this, and continued to sell vita dev kits not long ago.

lol, people have complained about delisting for many many years idk where you’ve been. 

 

Sorry I miss the other 2k comments threads about it 🙄. Yeah, I complained about it a lot too, since I had to bought retail versions of UMvC3 and MvC3, my point was that this has been happening since a lot of time ago so why people is so surprised about this now, we knew this will happen eventually. If I want to complain about anything is the real short notice.

Most of the outrage comes from a point of game preservation and accessibility. Tons of retro and rare games which cost £100+ to buy physically are now gonna be legally inaccessible.
All of the PS1classics, PS2classics, PSP digital only games, vita digital only games and all of the DLCs across all of those consoles...gone.

Also several indie devs such as Lillymo games have tweeted saying sony gave them no heads up whatsoever and sold them vita dev kits only a couple months ago.

Well buy them then if you care so much. Can't expect Sony to keep the store online to please a few people about games they might buy in a few years. That's just selfish.

I think they’re physical-only on Vita? Just did a search on the store on my UK Vita and I can’t see any of the Danganronpa games

There are a lot things yet to be clarified, you are making a guess on several things they haven´t confirmed.

Well they have though, all that's happening is a store closure. They say in email you can still download your games, which means you can still sign in. If anything else was affected they would've said.

Don't taint you're profile with that abomination, lol. I'm a 100% completionist as well and wouldn't advise you to play something so bad and boring with multiplayer/co-op trophies at this time, in case it ruins you're profile. If you do though good luck.

Nice profile there. I wanted to work on 100% too when I got more serious about trophy hunting earlier this month, but found out a couple of games on my list have unobtainables now, so I will have to live with 90%+ when I get my numbers up finally.

 

If I was in your position with a perfect account, I probably wouldn't even risk adding PS3 games to my profile at this point. Maybe if there's something you really gotta play and it has no multiplayer, sure. Things are looking rather volatile with the PS3 and Vita right now and any other services for those consoles could come up to the chopping block any time so if it was me I would be very careful about what I add to my profile moving forward.
