This is getting ridiculous. This better be a glitch and not an intentional, permanent decision.

Wahh wahh wahh

This is an over-reaction. PS3 games will be moved to PSNow

I just gifted my PS3 to my sister who enjoys fun party games with multiple people, if she wants to redownload games they had better not take away patches and updates, that's ridiculous.

My guess is that your sister won't notice the vanilla from the update.

TravsVoid25d ago

How does the dark knight not know what he's talking about?

Profchaos25d ago

What kind of rumours? Have not heard much I know they hired the rpcs3 guys but that all went quiet

You don't end something with a replacement that is being built. You keep it going until the replacement is up and running.

Whelp pirating my PS3 isn't a bad idea now!

Honestly can't believe this. It's making me feel like buying multiplatform and indie games on PlayStation is a bad idea going forward. Hopefully, Sony redeem themselves and this is just some sort of mistake.

XiNatsuDragnel25d ago

Ikr Sony right now needs a 2013 moment to get their butt back into shape.

Elda25d ago

That's a damn shame if this is true.

autobotdan25d ago

Jump to xbox. Xbox 360 DLCs are still available for most of all games. Backwards compatible

roboteye25d ago

This isn't true. You have someone who downloaded and updated Street Fighter 3 no problem here.

And the Dante's Inferno patch has been a problem since at least 2011.

Funny how many people knew this would happen, brought it up fairly often, and now everyone is acting surprised. No online service lasts forever, especially one tied to a platform that has been succeeded twice already. Yeah it sucks, but I knew it would happen some day, it's the main reason I loathe day 1 patches and games broken at launch, cause in the future those updates won't be around and you're just stuck with a broken game

Muzikguy25d ago

Yes very true. Maybe not everything is known, but I don't like this one bit. Especially when so many games need a Day 1 patch just to play. I personally don't understand why files and data on servers gets closed or deleted in the first place. Just leave it there. Like others have said Sony needs a wake up call with bc

isarai25d ago

Storing all that data costs money, and they aren't making money off that growing pile of legacy titles. From a business standpoint it doesn't make sense to keep them up, but I do agree that expanding BC to those legacy consoles solves both of those problems. They make money, we keep access to older libraries, here's hoping that's on the table, but I somehow doubt it.
