That's actually great news :)

Not interested in the game, but I gotta be honest: I would love to see a similar workaround for other delisted games like TMNT on PS3 and Plants vs Zombies on Vita :(

Damn... Seeing a post about this game brings me so many good memories, Fat Princess was my favorite PSN game ever created for PS3, I played that damn game a ridiculously amount of hours, probably spent the same hours on it as the ones I spent in GTA games.. I will never forgive myself for not being able to achieve 100%, but the arena trophy was too damn hard. When Fat Princess Adventures came out on PS4 I immediately bought it but I was extremely disappointed about it not having a multiplayer competitive mode like the first one... I didn't know there was a glitch on this while trying to buy it, it's cool that you found out a solution!

Great news!

 

Anyone got a comprehensive list of games that were delisted that had demos with a purchase option in-game?

What I really hate about delistings is that people who bought the game can download said dellisted game at any time. So all the games still exist.

 

In other words, whether it be OutRun, or Afterburner, doesn't matter at all, every single person in the entire world is just one click away from getting a valid download link and downloading any of these delisted games on the servers where they constantly remain, even right now.

 

Many old demos on the PS3 were actually the full games locked by a 100kb file and it's interesting that you can still unlock them today.

 

So close and yet, so far away

Technically this is always available through the disc copy that has this, When Vikings Attack, etc. Wish I would have grabbed the DLC for this back in the day, though. 😔

And why do you hate that? If developers and publishers delist the game they no longer have profit from it

I just discovered a work around and was able to purchase and download the base game to my PS3! It is fairly circumstantial but it does work. There are probably only a few of us who care but I thought I would share to potentially help those like myself. Like I said this is circumstantial, so the work around won’t work for everybody.

 

If you downloaded the demo when it was still available you will be able to purchase the full game for $7.49. The demo is still available to redownload through your downloads list. Once in the demo, press start, then select the menu option “twiddly knobs”. It should be the last option. Inside the sub menu there will be another option titled “fat downloads”. This should also be the last option. Click on it and it will ask if you want to quit the game and go to the PlayStation store. Confirm yes and there you go! It opens up a page to purchase the full game! Note: I was not able to purchase the game out right with the credit card I have on file. I had to exit out, enter the store like normal through the xmb, and add funds to my wallet. So as long as you add funds to your wallet and have the demo you will be able to purchase and download the full game! 
 

Unfortunately the link only has the full game and not the dlc. Personally though, I’m excited to have to full game in its original form. And for only seven bucks! Hope this helps others like minded individuals. 

Question! I'm seeing on here that you need to be online for some of these. Is that still actually doable? Or do you need to have a friend over with additional controller? O.o friend has both game and the dlc so debating...

Not personally interested in this game, but that’s interesting and makes me wish there were work-arounds for other delisted games (in my case Magrunner). I never downloaded a demo for it though-only found out it even existed a few mounts ago-don’t know if it even had a demo. 

 

I know two years back the devs of Magrunner were attempting to get it back on the store (it got delisted due to their publisher being shitty) but I guess it wasn’t possible or they gave up. Of course, can’t blame them if they were working on it and stopped due to the “PS3 Store shutdown” disaster.

Imma just stick with the demo. I invested like 30+ hours into the demo alone and it’s fun playing without trophies, especially given how hard the actual trophy list is.
