At this rate, it will be funny if it ends up being false. I mean, it's gonna happen eventually anyway, but still.

Twitter is currently melting down worse than the average active volcano with no one saying it might be false.

That's not up to Sony, the publishers control the sales. 

Publishers control the Sales . Sony has blocked non permanent Discounts for non PS4 Cross games.

 

 

Publishers have confirmed they can only permanently discount non Cross Buy Vita games. 

 

Can't make sales. 

 

Sony is blocking Vita/PS3 sales.

This better not be true, and if it is, I better be able to download the games I bought.

 

From now until July/August, I will not be playing anything on PS4. I'm going to be focusing exclusively on PS3 and Vita games until I get as much of my backlog done as possible. If a game has a shared trophy list with PS4, I will just play the PS4 version later this year. I may use my PS4 to play PS3 games on PS Now periodically.

 

There will be three exceptions on PS4: Fall Guys (I'm in an Infallible boosting group), NBA 2K20 (currently passing down MyTeam cards to another player), and The Last of Us (the aforementioned player I'm giving cards to really wants me to play it).

 

First up on the chopping block - the crappy ports of LEGO games on Vita. I want to delete those to make space for other, better games.

This is honestly the best excuse to finally tackle the entirety of my PS3 backlog. PS4/5 will be taking a backseat for this.

Even if the stores are closed, which I don't believe, you can still download the games you have already bought from the library, as long as there are Sony and Playstation. So many more decades.

If this is true then I can see it only being a matter of time before Sony shut down being able to sync Trophies on the PS3 and PS Vita.

Guess my physical collection will be rocketing in value. I usually keep my old stuff, but honestly I don't think I'll replay my PS3 games. I'd still wish to do a couple things with the Vita, tho

I'd like to say this seems unlikely, but honestly this fits Sony's recent MO to a T. Unnecessary and massively anti-consumer, it checks all the boxes for them. Just based on that I'm more than half convinced.

A simple theory. .. Can that cycle continue? Man then destroys dinosaurs, man create robots for example, robots destroy man, then robots create dinosaurs, and then...

I'm not taking risks, really. I will start to go through my game's wish list for PS3, check which have DLC I haven't bought yet and start buying them until July...my wallet won't like this. Luckily there isn't much left to buy outside very expensive Mass Effect 3 DLCs

I have my doubts with those claims, but I am confident that the stores shutting down will come sooner than expected its best you are aware of what you want and get it as quick as possible.

That would happen right next. Sony doesn't care for trophy hunters.

Very grim if true.  I'm nearly at the end of my PS3 backlog which unfortunately includes 3 unobtainable platinums, but a stark reminder to all those digital only people.

I'm skeptical about this... 

But I'm just going to buy now just in case. 

 

Now I got to figure out which I should buy.. DLC first or digital only games..

This is honestly why the digital only future we’re heading to concerns me.

Might switch completely to physical from now on

I also somehow didn't clock that it wasn't Tuesday today😂 lockdown has my weeks blurring together.

 

I should get around to getting a large vita memory card and should get around to buying persona 4 golden then. Even if this is false the prices of the physical copies are going to soar.
