So I've got a list of games I'm thinking about buying before the PS3 store closes. Just want to get some opinions on what I should keep or drop from the list.
 
PS3
 
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time
Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) Complete DLC
 
PSP
Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny
Resistance: Retribution
Dissidia [012] duodecim Final Fantasy


You get Quest for Booty free when you buy Into the Nexus.

I enjoyed the Sly games especially Thieves in Time. Bought The Sly Collection from PSN for $4.99 back when Amazon still had forums and someone posted a link to some iffy deal site that turned out to work. Liked them enough to track down Thieves in Time on ebay and had a good time with it.

I enjoyed what little I played of Thieves in Time when it was released. I'll pick it up again since it's only $10

 

SoulCal is decent. It’s certainly no SC2, or even SC3, but I think I preferred it over 4 and 5. Not that I played a lot of those.

If you’ve played the original Dissidia, 012 is basically more of the same. There’s an overworld this time, but I actually kinda preferred the grid from the first, it was visually boring but at least it was to the point. The additions are nice, but overall it’s more of a large expansion than a sequel. If you’ve only played NT, though, it’s pretty different (and I’d personally say 012 is much better). If you haven’t played any Dissidia all and you’re find the idea of playing Final Fantasy characters flying crazily around large arenas in one-on-one battles interesting, it might be worth checking out depending on the price. I liked it, and it’s probably the best entry in the series. I think the first is included, too, but is only unlocked after beating the sequel campaign.

I thought SoCal Broken Destiny was decent when I played it back then. I'll likely pass as I don't think I enjoyed it enough for a revisit. Where Dissidia is concerned that nostalgic feeling will likely be a letdown. So I will pass on it as well.

I did not know that, thanks for the info! I'll take Quest for Booty off of my list.

That explains why I didn't remember buying that game

I also am planning on buying the Ratchet games I don’t already own before the PS3 store closes down, since they’re inexplicably not available to play on PS4/PS5. Don’t forget about the Ratchet and Clank Collection, All-4-One, and Full Frontal Assault (which also includes Deadlocked for free) on PS3 and Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank on PSP!

There were a LOT of Ratchet games released during the era that Sony will soon shut off digital access to!

I 100% believe they will re release them.

Full Frontal Assault is just a pretty good deal in general. $10 for it, the vita version, and Deadlocked. I didn't even realize it at first, just wanted FFA as I really like action tower defense games.

There is no additional psn sales today?  I was really hoping for a Shadow of the Tomb Raider complete dlc to be on sale.  I am looking for a reason to replay it because I don't care for story at all and the ally mission bs but really enjoy the challenge tombs.  With nothing extra I feel like I will be forcing myself to replay it and hating every minute of it.  I replayed the first one on ps3 and it was great and am replaying the second on ps4 with all the extras.  I originally played it on 360.

The Spring Sale is one of their big sales lasting a month with a reset halfway through the sale so the additional sales are attached to lesser sales

I hope there is some sort of additional sale soon and more added to the spring sale.  What is in the current spring sale isn't all that great.

There's a second wave of stuff being added next week.

I don't. They will definitely re-release some of them (probably that original trilogy collection and maybe a Future collection) but I doubt they are doing all of them.

Now I can afford the down payment on a 2nd hand refurb scooter in their in game vechile store or three bullets for my starter pistol.  But who am I kidding I'll spawn in game with the cash in hand & be PKed before I can deposite it before being bombarded by adverts to go to their actual in game casino for a chance to win big...or something like that. :oldman:

PlayStations Twitter is weird. Why do they promote so many things with 3-7 second videos? A nice screenshot would probably be more effective than a video that shows almost nothing.

So I'm sorry if it's already been covered but I don't remember noticing it.... After the Vita and PS3 store closures I wonder what will happen to cross buy games. If you buy a ratalika game on ps4, will you still be able to download the Vita version? You don't have to purchase it from the Vita store, It goes straight to your download list. So....

I imagine you'd be able to download these games to vita, but I suppose we won't know for sure yet and tell they close everything down.

Because they want you to watch the whole trailer and read the article.

Hopefully when the PS3/Vita stores close we will still have access to game patches. That would suck if we’re stuck with version 1.0 of every game.

I don't believe they'll re-release certain first-party games on PS5 or PS4 either. I've revised my list of games to buy.

 

Ratchet and Clank games

Sly Cooper games

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Still under consideration:

Resistance Retribution

NFS Most Wanted 2012 DLC

That’s my main concern too. Hopefully they give some kind of update in the next few weeks to clarify things.

Is there any reason they wouldn't be, if you're still able to download any other games you've already purchased?

If the games are still there, the patches will be too

The patches are on the same servers as the games/DLC, so they'll be safe until the games get nuked.

Ah the PS5 slate is getting a little thinner until Ratchet & Clank. Oh well I have that and Returnal to look forward to there. I haven't played an RE game in forever since 4, so that's not on my radar.
