Not sure how much longer the Music Unlimited deal for $12 for plus members runs, but that service is really solid. I knew nothing about it, but have been playing a lot of Need for Speed on Vita. My search for custom soundtracks led me to the service and it works great on Vita, but there is also an IOS app and it works through Chrome as well. So far nothing I have searched for has not come up, for a $1 a month this seems like an incredible deal.


Awesome. I didn't know you could use music unlimited whole playing. Thanks.

Did you miss the NIS America sale that's happening right now as well? Legitimate question since it isn't being heavily advertised but has some pretty nice deals if you're into their games.


Where's the sale?

Is Sonic 4 Episode 2 worth it at that new Ps+ price?

Eeeh, 1/2 off is decent, I guess. Though knowing Sega, might be at that price again or lower.

Honestly, it's not a bad Sonic game, but just sort of on the "meh" side. I recall paying $10 & while I didn't hate it (aside from trying to get some of the last emeralds), it didn't leave a huge impact. If ya liked Ep. 1, you'll probably like Ep. 2.

Buddy, there's usually a weekly publisher deal when PSN updates. SEGA has been on this for weeks. I'm so sick of seeing NIGHTS, Sonic whatever, wacky SEGA classics, etc dominate the store. Plus you missed the biggest caveat, the rumors persist that Sony has abandoned the Cell platform and switched to AMD completely, meaning all your lovely digital goods you purchased off PSN will not work on PS4.


Then why buy any PSN games and why even be in this thread if that's the biggest caveat?

Why buy ANY games not just PSN ones. The next gen will be superior so why not just wait a full year without playing anything new. ;)

Disgaea and Prinny are on sale, as well as some DLC for D4, I think? Oh, and Cladun2, as well as ZHP, will be going on sale starting today.

I'm not sure you can. That post sounded that way to me at first, but I have the MU service and it adds an app to your xmb. I don't see how you would run it while playing a game. Of course I have never tried, because PS3 doesn't generally allow multitasking. If it's possible, someone please correct. I would love for that to be the case.

If PSN games aren't compatible with PS4, I'll eat my dick. Software can run on hardware it wasn't built for. It has been done before, believe it or not. Please don't talk about things so conclusively when you have absolutely no idea whether its true or not.

Already own the stuff for the general PSN sale, no need for digital copies that may or may not be supported come PS4 because Sony hates backwards compatability enough to ditch the Cell processor.


Wait, what? Are you saying that you believe Sony is ditching the cell just because they don't want bc? :-s They're going to a more standard hardware next gen so they don't have to put up with the sub-par ports they've been plagued with this gen, because devs don't want to learn their specialized hardware. If the price we pay for getting better multi-platform games is no b/c, I'm ok with that. Not like my PS3 is going to disintegrate next year anway.

Sony tried grafting on the PS2 CPU to the launch PS3 systems and it contributed to its $600 pricetag. When they quickly moved to cut the price the PS2 GPU and then the PS2 CPU were the first things to get cut to keep the price down.

The Cell is an even more complicated piece of hardware. Just about every single rumor I've seen is that Sony is done with the Cell, and it will not be used as the processor for the PS4. If backwards compatibility means slapping a Cell processor on a PS4 mobo simply for the sake of backwards compatibility, they hopefully learned their lesson and will not do so to keep the price down.

Yes, software emulation for PS3 games is still a possibility. As they've shown with the recent PS2 collections they're more likely to sell you the software emulation piece by piece rather than give it away for free with each system.

That takes one game off my list I wanted from this sale. $10 is a no brainer!

Ranting and misinformation

Ok, I feel like someone should correct the misinformation here. The reason the PS3 lost BC was a laundry list of things that happened.
1) They changed graphics card companies. So the PS2 company got all pissed and refused to allow true emulation of the chip.
2) They tried adding on the PS2 hardware but that ended up being way too costly (and still didn't fully work)
3) So they resorted to dropping it entirely.

It wasn't because Sony wanted to cash in on digital sales (but I'm sure it helped). The real reason was because they couldn't sell a $600 PS2. So they cut the price and focused on selling people new games.

It's cool that we have insane conspiracy theorists on this board.

I bet they'd get even more mad if I told them I already played my PSN games and that non-PS3 BC wouldn't bother me that much.

Can you point out exactly where I was misleading anyone? Specifically the bit about "Sony took out BC to resell you games"? I never alluded to that, I said it was a scumbag move to push for PS+ and then have the PS4 not playback any PS3 software, that would be mindboggling stupid (just like anti-used games lockout).

The PS3 was originally intended to do software emulation before it was scrapped at the last minute in favor of hardware emulation. The European launch models used a hybrid of both software and hardware for PS2 games -- which was later taken and used for the 2nd gen fat PS3 models.

And if by rant you mean articulating why not having BC for next-gen is unacceptable given the push for more PS+ subscriptions, then yeah, totally a rant. If Sony wants more people to pay for a premium service such as PS+, the very least they could do is make the library compatible on the PS4.

Oh and by the way, it was Microsoft, not Sony who was not allowed to use the GPU in their next console. NVidia claimed the rights and wanted royalty fees, Microsoft said lol no and asked AMD for help (ATI at the time). It's the reason why the Xbox 360's BC is purely software emulated, they didn't want to pay Nvidia for what was essentially their own chip device.

Probably not gonna get an apology out of you. :P

Why cant we just concentrate on what we know?

What we know is that there are a shit ton of quality games to play right now on PS3 (and 360/PC for that matter). And a vast majority of those titles are cheap and getting cheaper by the minute. I wont be upgrading to a new PS4 or 720 anytime soon because I am happy as of now with the graphics and games out on my PS3. At this rate I wont finish my current backlog until 2020 anyway.

When the new PS4 and 720 come out and we know the facts then we can all decide which is best on our own terms. Until we know the facts, speculating on what Sony will or wont/cant do is pointless really. They better know that anything near $600 wont sell though. Thats a given. :)
