It's not like the Vita devs can't afford to make physical releases, Sony stopped producing the Vita game carts years ago. Only a few still linger around for limited run games

Wouldn't be too bad if I could download/purchase this stuff on more recent consoles. But why would sony allow that? That's actually logical.

First Sony defeated SEGA with the PS1 "299" speech mocking Sega's price tag.
Then Sony defeated Microsoft with the "Thanks" ad mocking Microsoft's anti-disc-ownership policy.
Finally Sony defeated Sony with the PS3/Vita store shutdown mocking its entire back-catalog and history.

I'm already brtrayed by Sony when they made the next extra FF7 remake DLC exclusive on PS5. It hurts me a lot to not continue on FF7 remake anymore but I will probably continue it on Steam one day. I just hate wasting money.

Dude piracy already exist even before there is such a thing as a PSN Store or any other sites that sells game digitally.

That is the company's prerogative. Don't be a crybaby. Just deal with it.

The first game I played on Series X was 2003's Star Wars KOTOR. I was able to play that in 4K60 and Auto HDR. It's backwards compatibility is great.

PS is no longer my main console and the PS5 (whenever I can buy one.) will only be there for it's exclusives.

Sony: * releases the Vita *
Gamers: "good job Sony, this is the most amazing handheld console ever made, now how do you plan to support it?"
Sony: "omg we made a mistake the vita is horrible, no one is buying it"
Gamers: "no no it's amazing, just need a bit supporting Sony please"
Sony: "oh how could we ever recover from this piece of shit console"
Devs: "oh that's a cool console, don't worry Gamers we will support this"
Gamers and Devs: "awesome, Vita rules"
Sony: "ooooh how terrible no one cares about this garbage"
Gamers and Devs: "no no there's a community here, and we love it"
Sony: * not hearing a single word so far * "we have to kill it, fuck that shit"
Everyone: "WTF!!!"

Ngl this whole situation has really made me disappointed with Sony. The lack of preservation for their legacy titles and the horribly handled situation regarding all the indie devs who wasted all their time and resources is kinda fucked.

Companies in 2021 are just horrible they suck so much ass lol they care nothing about the people they are serving dollars are all they see nothing else customer service is dead in there eyes. Same for the developers trying to make something for themselves kind of sad honestly how far we have come away from what they where originally even Nintendo has made some sorry decisions.

I've been a Sony Fanboy for years and for Sony to limit they ps store so only be open for the PlayStation 4 and 5 is really pissing me off I still play my PlayStation 3 and so you telling me that y'all going to close the PlayStation 3 store Anna PS Vita store are y'all doing is limited your business this is not good for business at all. If this how its going to be I might as well go ahead and jumpship to the Xbox an say fuck sony because they cross the line on this one

I feel that the only way to get companies like Sony to change is to make it so that the moment these games are taken off their store, the game is no longer in circulation, thus legal to pirate and reproduce copies of since there is no longer a supplier or competition that can harm their market. It would at the bare minimum force them to introduce cross compatible purchases.

I don't understand why the store needs to close if they get 30% on every game they sell it might not be the most but every dollar counts

That argument of "well if they don't continue to sell these games people are just going to pirate them" is nonsense because the people that are going to pirate them are already doing it anyways. They ain't paying for these games. Especially not indie games.

Yong: ps3 emulation might be more complicated because of how weird that systems architecture is.

Horrible.

After hearing this, I AM NEVER! ever buying a PlayStation Console again. Until some serious changes happens with Sony and they stop censoring Japanese games, go back to their old ways and start giving a shit about their product, their fans and game developers over at japan and stop selling out to the west, I’m done with them. Even then, I doubt they’ll listen.

Wasn't Sony's motto 'For the players'? They're pulling an Anakin and fucking not only the players AND the devs, but themselves too. They're like ANIMALS!

Have they considered how bad this makes their new digital only console look? It's the perfect example of why people shouldn't get a digital only console and it is Sony themselves making that example.

Modder communities have gotten PSP/VITA games to work just fine through emulation, why can't Sony?

Not to mention, they're also shutting down the Community function on PS4 at the 1st of April…
I'm still hoping that this is just some stupid April fools joke :/

This move without warning by Sony and with no game preservation is controversy especially for devs.
Sure some PS3 games will still play on PS4 thanks to Playstation Now along with PS2 on PS4 from the PS store but these services won't be around forever.

This is going to damage trust with indie devs for PS4 and 5, the question of “why should we make games for you when you might shut down without us knowing?” Will start rising. Sony absolutely NEEDS this trust to build an already tiny library on the PS5
