PS3 messages in Japan will be limited June 30, 2020

36 posts in this topic

As long as the app (and website) can still be used to receive and send messages to any platform, this isn't a big deal.

PS3 has been around for about 14 years, and it's nearly two generations old.

I just wanted to note that Sony would probably get in lots of trouble if they disconnect PS3 from PSN entirely. Keep in mind that in this case your purchased digital good were all gone. I'm very sure that this would violate laws in many countries. I wonder if you can still access games you bought on Steam in its early days (2003 onwards).

Ofc they would, so you will allways have your games but online sync for trophies or support for the game, they can do whatever pleases them 👍 says prob in user agreement,

Well, technically the user agreements also says that they can remove games from your account without a reason, but it doesn't mean they will. The very few times that it happened to me, it was a mistake and they were quickly recovered. Unless they want to distrupt a whole generation of games, well they'll be free to do so.

 

And yes, ALL Steam games from the early days are accessible. Hell, you can still play certain non-Steam, 20+ years old PC games online.

Before this happens, Sony would cease to sell digital PS3 games. And from what I know you can still purchase games for the much older PSP. By the way, last night a new PS3 firmware was released.

I noticed last weekend that it's now exactly as they stated it in march: The exchange of messages between PS3 and all non-PS3 systems doesn't work anymore. But you can still send messages from one PS3 to another PS3 and also invites are still working 🙂.

 

On one hand I like it, because I don't have to delete the huge pile of messages on my PS3 anymore, after I had a long chat in PS Messages App. On the other hand I see the old console generation dying and that makes me a bit sad 😢.

I phoned yesterday the german Support to deactivate my systems. I also asked them at the end if he knows something about the PS3 server shutdown.

 

He said that PS3/PS4/PS5 systems run about the same servers so that there will be no need to shut down, because so it would´t cost Sony extra money to keep the access from PS3 to PSN alive.

 

Anyone of you has got a similiar answer?

Never seen word from official Playstation sources, but this is being said over and over the years and it makes total sense since it's indeed the same network they run. The Playstation Store is indeed a bit different between the consoles and for many years (Since 2015 at least) has trouble to run properly on ps3, but outside that, the network is the same across all platforms which is why you can still play your PSP online and even download games already bought on there.
