Hi, due to the imminent closure of the PS Store, I have decided it was time to play some of the backward Anime PS3 Videogames (in Physical Format).
However I made a terrible discovery, nobody even talks about it on this site, so, I decided to create this Thread.
Many of my PS3 Videogames (in Physical Format) don't get a Patch and for some Games the patch is essential to play Online and earn Trophies:
1) - Nor automatically at the boot of the game itself;
2) - Nor through "Manual" (Triangle: update check)

 

The following is a list of games that I have tested myself.

List of Physical PS3 games that are currently unable to get patches:

 

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast
Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2
Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

 

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage
Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

 

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

 

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations

 

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2
One Piece: Unlimited World Red

 

Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle
Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers


If someone know of a way to fix the problem I would appreciate it very much. Thanks ^^


(Sorry for my Rusty English LOL)

Just tested, UNS Generations downloaded version 1.01 just fine. UNS2 never got any patches

You can add Hitman: Absolution, GT5 and Smash Cars to that list but do note it seems to be only the EU versions that are affected, the US releases work just fine.

It doesn't work for me and I don't know why.
I insert the Disc and boot the game but unfortunately no Patches are downloaded, what should I do?

The patch download issues only seem to affect EU players and EU games, the US versions work just fine.

I'm guessing it's a regional problem. Going to go with what Hunting said

This is a serious problem in my opinion, I just hope it is temporary

I need a US player to confirm it but I believe Atelier Totori might be affected as well.

Thank you :).

I don't recall it getting a patch but I'm checking it now.

 

Edit: no patch downloads

 

I think there's DLC for additional characters though no trophies related to them.

Is there any way to check if a game has a patch that won't download, or never received a patch?

I would be grateful if any US gamers can try to start the games mentioned above, so as to confirm if the games have any Patches, So, as to have a summary of the situation

Well I'm Canadian (pretty sure same as US), and my copy of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is still at Version 1.0 and I platted it last Summer 2020, so I'm sure there's no download patch involved with the game.

 

The only thing is that it's a digital copy, but I'm sure even digital copies will still check for updates when first booted up anyways.

Right now I'm using the physical copy of Gran Turismo 5 to download the patch.

Nice ^^

I have news about the Physical Games List, I have received confirmation that most of the games mentioned don't have Patches/is available again (thankfully), so I'll just update the list, unfortunately for some games the situation doesn't change.

Whats the problem? I thought collecting physical games were better than digital. Oh wait...

 

 

You can still play physical discs without the patch, oh wait....

 

One Piece Unlimited World Red and Ken's Rage (1) don't seem to have patches. US Physical copies- installed years ago.

Thanks for the info, I was having kittens thinking this was another game that couldn't download its patch :).

I've gone through all my physical discs. I can't check the PS3 games I've done since those probably already have the patches, but of the 30-40 physical discs that I've not played, about half did not have patches (presumably - says latest version installed when I check), and almost all of the rest all downloaded the patches fine, including some EU and JP discs.

 

The only one that will not download was NASCAR Days of Thunder. Says it needs v1.01, but I just get an error message repeatedly.

 

EDIT - Days of Thunder update. So this one is odd. The game isn't playable from disc, it needs to be installed. You can't update the game once installed from the XMB, rather you need to actually launch the game and then it forces the update. Crashed the system once, but then did download the update.

 

So all my tested physicals updated fine.

So are these 3 games on the current list the ones that don't install the patches? What about the other games that were listed but removed/updated?

If Hitman:Absolution servers closed already, would that mean being unable to download it's patch wont affect the trophies as its all offline now?
