Does it bother you that Sony is implying that they are scrapping the PS3 PSN?

So you can't transfer PS1 or PS2 or PS3 PSN purchases to PS4.

But it seems like they won't even offer PS1 or PS2 classics at all on the ps4. Its all their new streaming garbage that won't even work for a few years.

This makes me really worried for my ps3. What if PS4 sales are bad and they decide to FORCE people to upgrade by shutting down the PS3 PSN? in a few years?

I buy physical ps3 games too, but i buy PS1 classics because they are much cheaper than buying overpriced ebay physical discs.

the fact that the ps4 won't even offer the ability to buy or download ps1 or ps2 classics makes the ps3 seem much more robust.

Indeed I never buy Digital unless there is absolutely no other way to get it ie: Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires.

There is no reason to think they'd shut down ps3 psn to bolster sales of the ps4. They supported and produced ps1/ps2s for a few years into its predecessors lifespan. It will more than likely be up as long as the ps4s because chances are it will all be the same servers. These are all assumptions based on how they've handled things in the past though.

Console doesn't have backwards compatibility does it? So what reason would there be to transfer? Transfer your psn titles for them to sit there as you can't play them.

It puts the final nail in the coffin of me ever supporting digital distribution outside of PC gaming.

As long as they keep the PS3 PSN up even after the PS4 is released I'm not really bothered by this. I'm not planning to get a PS4, but even if I did, I'd still keep my PS3 anyway.
