Better than the present.

Alright, so you won. I challenge you all to buy games on the PSVita and PS3. Or hell, even play them. Oh, wait, I guarantee none of you are actually going to do that. and no, don't bother correcting me, I know you're lying or just being contrarian.

I don't think you know people as well as you claim to.

Photoshop. Fake News.

Good on Sony for this.

You evaluating a game 1 year ago proves you are buying plenty of stuff on PS3 or PSN now?

And well if you like to live in the past you can keep the things you had in the past.

They should be more responsible with their digital platforms anyway. Who's going to buy a digital only platform like, say, the PS5 digital model, if they start hearing stories about digital stores closing and patches (or even entire games) ending up completely unaccessible? That's why you invest in physical.

I agree!

I`m sure that now all the people that were upset will buy a lot from the PS3 and mainly PSVita store right?

I think the market for older games is big enough. Retro gaming never goes out of fashion.

The present sure has an uphill battle, though. So many classics to play, so little time in a life.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Are you guys for real? It sounds like you're mad that Sony changed their mind about this. Did you want these stores to close?



I love people who downplay people's want to play Classic Games on this site, it is fricken hilarious. It is like people ignore the obvious demand in the market for retro games, retro consoles, retro devices that can play said games.

I'm an anomaly but I've literally just played Zelda Twilight Princess on Wii U this morning, Prince of Persia 2008 on PS3 an hour or two ago, and Geometry Wars on Xbox 360 a few minutes ago. I don't know if it shows up in my PS3 activity but you can see my last several Xbox games in my sig which should include TMNT 1989 and Geometry Wars on Xbox 360.

I love the 7th gen. In fact, last week, I just bought a new 22 inch 1080p TV just for those old consoles. If only I could figure out a way to get my old exclusive Prince of Persia skins from ubisoft's U-Play service back on my PS3...

It's really a great system. I was surprised to see the browser still works and I even downloaded some new custom themes from that website directly to the console. Gonna finish Metal Gear Rising on PS3 this week.

What is your problem exactly? That people who still enjoy the platforms are able to buy games on them? That people who never owned the platforms can still purchase one and still feel like they can get some value out of it? That Sony can continue to profit from the sales of such purchases? 

Cutting your nose to spite your face in full force here, and it's a terrible look.

Good for them. Now they just need to have some sales from time to time in order to make me buy something. It's been years since the last big sale for Vita and PS3... 

Sadly as its not in the PC store anymore just the consoles, go even check if there is a sale is annoying nowdays.

It's like people are mad that other people want to play with their toys in a different way that they like to play with their toys.

The PS3 is my first and only console I've ever owned. As someone who has three generations worth of PlayStation exclusives to catch up on, I'm absolutely still a customer. And given that it will be years  before I get to some of these games, I feel much better knowing that things like patches and DLC will be there when I finally get to them.
