After some mulling over I've taken a look at my library and realized how much I've spent on playstation products overall.

 

I have same thoughts sometimes, but then I release I did bought full-price games only 2 times (GTA V and RE2:Remake), all other stuff came from PS Store discounts and pre-owned ebay discs :D

I have about 50 games on PS3 and Vita that I prebought and have yet to play, and of course a further 50 or so more, 5-6 years of free stuff given away on PS+

Probably just gonna cut my losses on most of those since I never played them.

 

Especially since I have about 30 games on PS4 and VR that I prebought and have yet to play. In a way servers me right for always buying games on 50% or more off on sales.

 

Of the recent NINE games that were given away for free, 7 of them I did not own...

Yes I agree. I have been severely neglecting my PS3 and Vita backlog. And of course why is that reason?

 

Wall to wall sales all year round for nearly 2 years now (which ramped up significantly when Covid kicked in)

With so many new games getting released I've been playing those especially since there have been no sales on PS3 and Vita for years.

It's almost like if they had continued supporting the legacy stores with sales and marketing, they might not need to shut them down now. 😑

• If you have purchased a PS3/PS Vita cross-buy bundle and have only downloaded either the PS3 or PS Vita version, you will need to download the other version prior to the closure of PlayStation™Store on the relevant device.

 

I still don't fully understand this. I hope this mean you have to click on games that have a "Free" tag which usually aren't on your download list so that they can be added.

 

Or does this apply to all PS3/Vita cross-buy games already on your download list? 

 

Hopefully it's the former.

I think it means that. Just like when you buy a season pass for certain games but the included content is not automatically added to the account, i.e. DOOM Eternal, SoulCalibur VI, Ridge Racer for Vita, random examples.

 

There were cross-buy titles that never received all versions at the same time, i.e. Oddworld New 'n' Tasty and Resogun.

I think that is exactly what it means. This thread is moving too quickly for it to be coherent, so please see what I wrote earlier here for clarification. but I think we are on the same page:

 

It's too complicated an issue to try and explain in a single sentence, so great work yet again Sony. It's taken me several hours to work out what the hell it means. ☺️

Well I guess it's time I finally buy the Syphon Filter games as they don't appear to be PSNOW and no remake seems to be forthcoming. 😞 Maybe Dead Space and Batman Origins too.

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.

Yeah, I will have very careful.

Good thing is psn only games doesnt have multiplayer. 

Im panic buying a lot of them.

Wow.

 

The PS3 store was a steaming pile of garbage that largely didn't work. I got constant errors when trying to buy GTA IV and Mirror's Edge digitally recently and could only purchase them on the browser based store which of course was pulled offline a few days ago. This is definitely frustrating for backwards compatibility and games preservation. I really, really, really hope Sony has some sort of plan to bring PS3 emulation to the PS5 at some point, I doubt it, but I hope they have a plan

Yeah, that disgraced homunculi of a store was utter shit that's why I would only use it if I had to even if the physical was quite a bit more expensive(though for the most part it isn't) and emulation would only ever happen under a blue moon since Sony avoids the PS3 like the plague its sad.

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 ;)

With tons of unplatinable ps3 games that I want and tons more after the psstore shut down I think im gonna make an alt account. 

I dont wanna risk my 100% profile.

I dont know if thats considere "cheating"

I've been incrementally purchasing DLC for my PS3 and Vita games this whole past year since the first lockdown in the UK. (Fuck you Mass Effect 3 DLC price and COD DLC prices) So I am nearly done acquiring all the DLC I want and digital games.

 

I bought the Mass Effect Trilogy in probably the last ever PS3 sale, not sure if you have this version or not but I assumed that it had all the DLC included. Just checked after seeing your post and it seems it doesn't have Mass Effect 2 or 3 DLC. Just begrudgingly paid EA £22 for the Dragon Age 2 DLC I hadn't bought (in the hope that it would come down in price one day). Looks like I'm going to have to sacrifice Mass Effect as I'm going to have to spend a small fortune to get everything I want for Vita. 

 

If they had given us a year, or had a massive sale, then it probably wouldn't have been so bad. Having to try and justify spending hundreds of pounds on games/DLC in three or four months is really unacceptable. There are some things that just aren't going to get bought, unfortunately.

Well, I had about 10 games on my watchlist for when the next Vita or PS3 sale was gonna happen (some have been on there for years)

Looks like I am gonna have to buy them at full price now...

I'm definitely against this decision they've made. But okay they've decided to close them, I can't do anything about that. 

However what really irks me is the way this is being handled. For starters 3 months notice for PS3, and 5 months for the Vita is ridiculous. It should of been 'at least' a year, just like how PS+ games being stopped for PS3 and PS Vita was given a years notice. How they come up with 3 and 5 months is beyond me, especially when the world has just been through some really tough times. That's not going to be enough time for everyone to get everything they want. Not asking for a sale because I know there won't be one (although it would be a nice incentive). But they should of given us a decent amount of time to buy whatever we want, and a year would of been what was acceptable in my mind.

The other thing is regarding the Vita, as there's no clarity in their email. They say we'll be able to re-download games via the Download Lists, but the Download List is inside the store on PS Vita so how is this going to work?

The Vita closure surprises me the most here though, since the digital store for that has had a shorter lifespan than the PS3 and the PSP. Plus there are (or were) releases planned for the Vita in 2021, so I'm assuming whatever was to be released will be cancelled now. The Vita is essentially a digital indie machine which has plenty of unique games which  aren't available on PS3, PS4 or PS Now. I guess I will have to try and get custom homebrew which I've always been wary of because of been banned. Since the system is literally dead though I guess that's very unlikely.

Jesus F-ing Christ... y'all blew up this thread like crazy. "Only" 20 pages were added while I was at work. Cut me some slack, ok? I'm a slow reader. xD 

 

On a serious note, this is just sad. I didn't want to comment on this much until it was confirmed. Well now it is. I've mentioned this before but as far as games go personally I think I'm set since I got all the games I wanted on PS3/Vita/PSP. However I am concerned about missing out on DLCs (I got to do some homework now). I did buy another Vita memory card. I'm just going to fill it up with my digital games. Yeah it's F-ed up but all I can do at this point is prepare... and take it up the keister. Anyway, I don't think I'll be buying PS5 till I'm (nearly) done with PS3, I just can't trust Sony anymore.

 

PS: I wouldn't put it past Sony that the PSN troubles we had a couple of weeks back wasn't them tinkering in the background with the network so they could make this possible (closing the store).

 

lol Yeah. I went to bed and it showed "1k", and then when I woke up it showed "1.6k"

I knew something had kicked off when I saw the post increase.
