Sony is doing away with the PS3 store + Free games on PS4
« on: March 30, 2021, 10:45:55 PM »
I got this email today -

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

You'll still be able to access content you've already purchased and the download links will continue to be available.

I have a PS4 and play that currently BUT I still have PS3 games I've never played. I can't afford to buy anything in the PS3 store right now. I bought a lot from the store over the years. I don't know why Sony is so resistant to continued support and backwards compatibility. I'm lucky enough to own all of the Playstations (except 5) but what about people who only have a PS3? Heck, I know several people who only still have a PS2.

Sure, you can buy physical copies (which I personally prefer) but not everyone has the room for that and downloading something from the store is easy and instant. Blah. I don't like this one bit. And it sets you up to expect them to do the same with the PS4 eventually. I only got mine two years ago, I'm still building up a library.

Anyway, a heads up for anyone with the systems listed and if you're able, grab what you want from the store while you can.

Also, the PS4 store is giving away a bunch of games including Horizon Zero Dawn throughout the next month. I grabbed The Witness and Thumper. I already have HZD on disc and Abzu when they were giving that one away at some point in the past. But there's some good games to get, for free! So check it out.

Hmm... I had a feeling this was coming, so I already went ahead and bought all the digital-only games I was interested in. But what if the physically available games I want suddenly become HTF? What if I suddenly become interested in a game I previously wasn't, but it's already gone for good? Sony will be enjoying some sweet FOMO cash in the coming weeks, I'm sure >_<

Looks like I will need to get either a £15 or £25 PlayStation gift card if I want to get the games for my psvita
