    • When you said that Sony's primary goal was profits means they aren't serving the higher calling to what they are suppose to do YongYea, ever heard about a Japanese company that existed for over 1,020 years? Well you better look it up because they serve "the higher calling" to why they exist to this day. In Sony's case, they need to stick to the higher calling on why Play Has No Limits.

  • It truly breaks my heart that video games are still treated like skeevy attractions at a mall parking lot carnival . I know it really all comes down to big wigs in the industry choosing not to respect video games as an art form and that blasé attitude getting reflected in their “leadership”. It’s still so gut wrenching to me. Especially considering the circumstances surrounding majority of game development. People put so much hard work into this shit, just to be unceremoniously told that they have T Minus 6 Months to get their shit and get out. Gross.

  • It's so sad to see Sony take such a huge shit on the console ecosystem they built. I own a PS3, a PS4 and a PS Vita. Owned a PS1 back then and had a PS2 borrowed from a friend at some point. There are a TON of old games that people love to speedrun for example, and have to pay a premium to get a legit copy of the game on the original hardware. All because Sony doesn't give us a better alternative. Stuff like this only adds fueld to that fire.

  • Oh, so *_NOW_* people are getting upset about this happening but, over the last 10+ yrs., almost everyone had a nonchalant, apathetic attitude towards backwards compatibility. Accepting, justifying, supporting, excusing, downplaying and promoting SONY's lame-ass excuses for not having BC in their new(er) consoles like PS4 & 5. Now that SONY is basically giving anyone who cherishes and still plays legacy games the giant middle finger and screaming "FU" in their face, suddenly preserving these games is now of concern? Where was the noticeable outrage back before PS4 and PS5 came out when it was revealed that they would not be supporting BC? Oh yeah, now I remember: Nearly everyone just shrugged their shoulders, said "well that sucks.." and then immediately began squeeing and swooning over current gen graphics, current gen controller ergonomics and current gen console case designs. To quote the famous villain - _"Young fools.. Only _*_NOW, AT THE END,_*_ do you understand."_ Typical, predictable and pathetic.

  • I don't know what they (Sony) are talking about if they are saying PS3 store will close in/on July. I am on my PS3 right now and after an update I couldn't block I can't buy anything from the PSN store. I see prices but can't buy anything at all PS3/Vita/psp. This April 7th what the hell? Anyone know? Did they start early? The update was 4.87, I already restarted my PS3 but can't get anything from PSN store?

  • If Sony thinks I'm going to subscribe to PS Now to play retro games, they have another thing coming. Sony is literally saying "we don't care" and expecting us to support them anyway. Glad I bought a Switch.

  • I think the devs are most like the JP section since I checked the games in the EU store and boy there was barely any "good" games on it and last update of games was some random indies from 10/2020. There more selection in the JP store so honestly I care less with the EU/US stores. Plus the hardware is dated, its good hardware but phones now are more superior, especially thr touchscreen and graphics.

  • This is theft plain and simple. We PAID for the ability to download the game in a digital format from the store and also to be able to REDOWNLOAD from the store if we got new hardware or deletion due to space issues, this was to offset the lack of security from owning a hardcopy. YOU ARE THIEVES SONY, YOU ARE DESPICABLE DISHONORABLE THIEVES!!! I despise sony and everything they stand for after their HQ was moved to the US.

  • I just bought a used Vita on Ebay in Feb of this year..... this really hampers my goal of collecting over time as it seems many physical copies of games are ridiculously overpriced on Ebay/Amazon.... Why would you not support continued sales of digital games.. Is money not wanted? Or, do they have a new handheld in the works that no one knows about? (wishful thinking I know)

  • Sony: releases a portable console and it fails so they stop supporting it YEARS AGO BTW Indie devs: chooses to release game on a dead in the water console (for whatever odd ball reason) Sony: desides to take down the vita store for obvious reason Indie devs: wtf man you can do that you're an ass hole seriously what did these devs expect when making a game for the vita??? like, oh no you cant sell your game to Greg Miller and the 10 other people that still own a vita. meanwhile there is a HUGE market for indie literally every other console out there including the pc, the HOME of indie games. why is this news? is it bc the big bad corp doesn't care about the little guys? wow shocker, we totally didn't know that was the case at all, ESPECIALLY with sony of all corps. to be clean, sony not sending out an email to devs even just a month before this announcement is a dick move. but i just cant see a reason to feel bad for these devs when the writing has been on the wall for years and years at this point.

  • I still use the PS-Vita and PS3. the shutdown of the PS store for these platforms is a bad business plan. Knowing this will be the future of the PS4 and PS5 why would i ever buy another game from sony. I can still play all my steam games on my oldest PC. Someone needs to make a 3rd party store for the PSP, PS-Vita, and PS3. This hardware needs to continue.

  • I had gotten my vita late 2012 going into 2013, 9-10 yrs ago. It’s ironic in 2 ways. 1st: they want to introduce a retro trophy system for PS3,2&1, BUT for “CLASSIC GAMES”, which are those is the question. They bring up this ambitious idea while also wanting to shut down the digital stores to ps3,vita, and psportable, eradicating and thanos snapping the existence of retro games on those stores. 2nd: the last minute announcement that these stores would shut down is the same way with google and their system google stadia. They gave false hope, lying about its longevity, only to announce its unanimous death when everyone else hears the news. Dafaq u doin Sony?

  • For being one of the most well known modern day console manufacturers, with tons of exclusive games and memories held within so many millions of people, Sony is handling their past like they just want to wipe it all away and start anew, preservation allows the future to experience a piece of the past and maybe even find games they never knew about at the same time. Microsoft doesn't have as many exclusives, but the way you treat your past tells so much about how you will act in the future. Just wow, from walk-man to walk-out.

If they want their community they built, they need to preserve the games that are released on their platforms. They litterarly conterdict their philosophy in 2014. I wish they fail miserably with the PS5, I hope all the scalpers get as many PS5 as possible so that their stores plummit in revenue.

  • Sony doesn't care about some tiny indie developer. Indies are only important to the point their games can be exploited by Sony. Sony is not going to let some anonymous coder get in the way of making major decisions about their consoles. It's a shame because these major corporations seem to forget that having goodwill in your customer community is just as good as having cash in your pocket.
