  • And this is why I'm glad physical media, emulation, jailbreaking, etc. exist. Imagine how many games would be lost forever without emulation.

  • Games media be like: “When we aren’t calling for game devs to be cancelled, their games to be changed and gamers to die in a gutter, we are preserving games, protecting their developers legacy’s and being “pro gamer.”” GROSS

  • We can't forget that the only reason Xbox started backwards compatibility on the Xbox One was because Sony beat them so hard at the beginning of the last generation. MS was going to have no backwards compatibility AND restricted physical copies. Nobody is the hero in this story. If MS wasn't backed into the corner, there would be no backwards compatibility. I have been talking about this privately for years now. All digital services will someday die. Whether or not companies decide to preserve these games is a purely monetary decision that, as long as they aren't compelled to by consumer pressure (because nothing could get them to do it legally), will always fall on the side of whatever makes them the most money now. Anyone interested in any of these games should pirate the hell out of them because they don't care enough to leave them up for sale.

  • From microsoft at least they let you play og xbox, xbox 360, and xbox one games on xbox series X and not only that, but they also let use a paid app call dev mode from microsoft website and download to xbox series X and then download an emulator like retroarch and emulate games like nes, snes, ps1, ps2, gamecube, gba, etc, and this did not make your xbox live account ban or anything like that, and from sony for some reason can't not do the same and the cmos battery on ps3 when it die and it well the games that have been download from psn store will not work anymore after the psn store shut down and yes you can still use the game disc after the psn store shut down, but the ps4 is even worse when the cmos battery die after the psn store shut down not only the digital games will play amymore... but also the game disc will not work anymore at well so yea at this point after all that have been say and done... fuck sony, fuck the ps4, fuck the ps5, fuck the battery that bulid in the systems, fuck the ceo who at sony at this time and fuck this i am done with sony.

  • Oh don't tell me that blabber about mantaining servers online being costly and all that shit. There's literally still more than enough PS3 players online today to justify the existence of online servers. Also, don't think that physical discs are eternal. Like any material they have a limited lifespan, and even if you were to keep them in freshmint condition locked away under 7 keys then perhaps your PS3 (which of course you still continue using) will stop functioning even before your discs get a scratch.

  • This is such a low blow for older generations, they are forcing us to forget about our nostalgia in order to sell more supposeddly, it is like the star wars phenomenon, in order to “move on” they destroy the things we were used to, i am gonna keep my nostalgia whenever the fuck i want, you are not going to make me think different, it is also an statement to say that the old ways were better, i mean they are doing bad for younger generations, and older generations as well, and the older generations could say before that we got their backs, but now they are giving the back to older generations too in their shitty marketing that is affecting newer generations... so i can see there is going to be a big change, people are just going to forget about videogames because they are not doing anything well, is costing a lot, and is so frustrating to jump in, so thanks companies, long long playstation user lost in here, maybe i move to x box or maybe i just grow up like they are suppose to telling us to, and just stop playing... what a time to live, everything is turning into a modern tragedy.

This discussion has been around since 2008-2009 and it's only in the last few years people are starting to discover it's impacts now that the first generation distribution platforms are being retired. There's only one way to stop it; Reject the digital distribution of retail games.

  • We still can download our games after the shutdown but for how long? The download list will be linked with your psn account or console? What if the ps3 cease to function,can i use another one to download my stuff with my psn account? I received a warning email from Sony but the email didnt answer any of this questions. This can backfire to Sony because gamers will think twice from now on on buying digital for ps4 and ps5. Iam a PS guy but i know that Microsoft at least believe in generations,a friend of mine with XBSX is having a blast buying and playing xbox 360 games,even the console transforms that games into remastered versions,i dont have that on my Playstations,not at that extend!

  • For the people who claim that physical media is superior, nowadays, physical media is not even safe and future proof anymore, because many games released on consoles, require a download even if you bought a disc, and with stuff like DLC, updates and patches, your physical copy will not have the complete version of a game unless you have those editions with all the DLC included, plus, with Day 1 Patches and games coming broken at launch, you can't have the good version of a game without a download.

  • Excerpt from an email I got from Sony 5 minutes ago, "What about content you already own? • You will still be able to download your owned PS3, PS Vita, and PSP content, including games and video content. • You can download your owned content onto your PS3, PS Vita, or PSP by accessing the Download List on the respective device. • If you have purchased a PS3/PS Vita cross-buy bundle and have only downloaded either the PS3 or PS Vita version, you will need to download the other version prior to the closure of PlayStation™Store on the relevant device. • Video content that you own can be streamed on PS3, PS4 or PS5 through the My Videos app, or on mobile devices through the PlayStation™Video app. • You will still be able to re-download and play game titles you have claimed through PlayStation®Plus as long as you remain a member of the service."
