Yeah, after shut down cannot buy games but still can download or not?

Up till now, I'm still very against digital games. The games that I usually bought digital are those that I can't get physical.

Well, I guess there's really no reasons to not jailbreak your ps3 and psvita anymore. Sorry but not sorry, Sony, you forced it.

I've already started downloading every ps3 and vita games, dlcs that I've bought. And psplus games need to reactivate license. I didn't know those expired in 2 years. I have Borderlands pre sequel installed on 2018, expired 2020. Better to reactivate them now if you intend to play those ps3 psplus free games eventually. Will have 2 years to clear in the event worst case scenario that we can't login psn with ps3 anymore.

Yup, digital path is not recommended. You can buy now when you want to play right now and delete after but never purchase to keep as collection. I just found out from youtube comments that if the cmos batt in ps3 dies, you will have to redownload the digital games again. If cannot redownload, oh my :lol: Going to shift my focus back to completing ps3 and vita games after acquiring one last ps4 platinum trophy. Fortunately my psp is 3k, not psp go. And I have zero intention nada in getting digital edition ps5.

If this is indeed true, those who trade in their ps3, vita, ps4 physical games for peanuts damn not worth it. Your ps4 physical games value may increase when ps6 comes out? BC ps5 only and shutdown ps4?? :lol:

Definitely going to cut down on purchasing digital games be it on switch or ps4 after this wakeup call, rumor or not.

Digital is the future. I think in 5 more years physical games will go the way of VHS tapes & DVDs.

The 1st ecosystem to do resellable or tradeable digital games legitmately (so not G2A) will dominate the market. The ecosystem owner can take a small 3-5% cut or charge a small fee for trades which is shared with the publisher.
Happy 40th birthday to me! 7000th trophy and 130th plat - Batman Arkham Knight!

You might as well say streaming is the future.

Be it the future or not, as a consumer, I believe I should at least delay the inevitable instead of having my nose pulled by these giant corporations, which don't care two shit about me, whichever directions they want.

I believe there will still be demand for physical media, be it movies, music albums or games. Unless every company agree to be on board and leave us no choice by going bruteforce fully digital and every customer wants digital, "digital is the future" would remain an idea, a marketing line, a dream goal. Clearly there is a market and so they are still manufacturing physical media. Collector's editions for example still sells. Both have cons and none of them will replace each other.

So sony store selling you disc version at $7xx? never mark up? :lol:

729$ is already mark up Liao lor. Xsx rrp is only 699. I'm still pissed at paying the extra 30$ Sony popularity tax. I look at amazon for pos5 games to buy. Seems like there's really nothing much to buy. Maybe I should flip it in carousel. Lol.

I wonder if report to CASE on Sony or any retail shop flipping the price, will they take any actions.

Yestd shopee gamextreme listed $1 deposit secure ps5 stock, price was 744 to 948. Last few months I've seen a few stores selling jp, eu stock up to 1.5k. You will be like reporting almost all of them :lol: 729 good deal liao. Nothing on ps5, haven't you watch yt videos on that? Jim Sterling mentioned he mostly use it for monster hunter world. Reckless Comedy poking fun on lack of games, "no restock because if everyone got their hands on one, more people will find out that they don't have games" :lol: Sell overseas? Seems like ang moh desire it more.

The rumor is true. You can still redownload purchased games. Some people jokingly commented or is it true? on yt "for now". Vita messaging will stop working. Psp purchase through in app will cease to function as well.

Poor PS Vita, the bastard child that Sony can't wait to get rid of.

The best part is there are developers still making games for it and they aren't informed about the store closure. Sony getting real cocky again it seems.

Now I know their pattern is like that, I'll keep to buying physical complete edition selectively. Now the next that follow, would it be vita and ps3 games online servers shutting down since they are not on sale anymore? I'm prepared I won't be able to plat those vita games with multiplayer trophies. On the bright side I bought them on sale.

Then there's the other article regarding ps4 cmos dead renders digital & physical games inaccessible without reauth through connecting to the servers.

I hate it when they keep mentioning psnow as an alternative. Xbox gamepass lai liao, we still do not have psnow.
