I've been using PS4 controllers for all PS3 gaming for a while now - just need a long USB cable.

 

Downside of that is the 'home' button doesn't work, so you can't get to the XMB from in-game, but on the plus side it has the added benefit of charging your controller for the next time you are on PS4 again 👍

I do the same. I use PS4 controller with a long USB cable and have my PS3 controller plugged in as well for when I need to access XMB. Love the affect it has on giving me a fully charged controller for when I switch to PS4

Well that was certainly unexpected..

Not that it changes anything in the long run. The store will go down someday, just not yet.

 

Panic buyers may have helped in overturning Sony's decision, as will the duped developers. The latter probably had more effect though.

 

As for me, I did some purchases for the PS3 and will continue to do so when they're up next. I don't indent to buy everything at once (even if my wallet would support this) simply because I want to take my time and weigh each game/DLC for bang-for-your-buck.

Biggest undecided DLC is the Tyranny of King Washington for Assassin's Creed III... So pricey >_<

I have several Vita games to buy but my credit card was constantly rejected... (Again, very weird issue because it can be used to buy game directly, just not for refilling the wallet)

 

Anyway, guess i still need to.

 

Kudos to SONY for making a good decision, once in a while..

Yeah, I can only pay for stuff on the Vita by topping up my wallet (usually on CDKeys as they have some good deals and usually about 15% off too)

Would be nice if they'd fix the thing as well. I bought a game yesterday and can't download it. Just get an error message.

I decided to go ahead and buy all the PS3 content I planned on buying anyway, just so I wouldn't have to worry about it down the road.

 

Included in my purchase were some PS1 classics. It had been a long time since I'd played one of those, and I completely forgot that those games download installer files and not the actual games (and then the games show up on the opposite end of your list once installed). I spent a good 10 minutes thinking "Why the fuck won't these games open, they just keep installing over and over!" Felt kind of dumb afterwards, but good news, the games work fine!

 

Just a PSA for anyone who suffers from a similar brain fart.

Good news! But I’m glad that I didn’t hurry and spend any money I had a feeling it was just an April fool...now everyone can chill and take a drink.

The question now is when it will actually happen ? 

PSP store closing is still a reality to happen soon as scheduled.

That's a win for the fans. They will probably try doing the same thing in a couple of years. I like buying my games physically, but I am glad to hear they changed their mind after backlash. I guess thats shows they listen to the fans!

I would guess 2022 or 2023. And next time, I think they'll give an advanced notice of six months or more. Nintendo certainly gave more notice of the Wii Shop closing if I recall correctly. Sony should follow suit and give more of a heads-up.

They should stop thinking by generations and just do mass sales for all systems at once.

Maybe if you did not download the purchased stuff.

It's a tricky question.  Under normal circumstances where they would announce a closure and stick with it, my instinct tells me that they won't announce a closure again until they are absolutely, 100% sure they are ready to close the stores.  A few weeks ago I would've agreed to a 2022 or 2023 PS3/PS Vita Store closure but now I'm not so sure.  I feel like a reversal like this is too significant to turn around in a year and announce the same closures.  Could be wrong, of course, but my instincts tell me that the PS3 and Vita Stores will remain open through the lifecycle of PS5 (6-7 years or so).  I think closing it down a year or even 2 years out from this mess is just not enough.  

 

I do agree, though, that once a closure is announced, they will give at least 6 months, my guess is it will be a years notice.

This was suuuper good news, but now I’m  paranoid about this eventually coming down the road again the next couple/few years lol! It still tells me that I need to get my ass in gear with respect to my physical collections. I’ve been pushing off PS3, but I always wait until it’s too late...
