Sony in general have been utterly terrible, not only with first party games but with their online ecosystem and complete lack of backwards compatibility. Frankly, PS4 to PS5 discs should be expected. And I completely believe that the PS5 is capable of emulating the PS3 but we're still stuck with PS Now. Not to mention the terrible policy of PS2 and PS1 games on PS now being forced to have trophy support - that alone would stop so many devs from putting their old games up there. And why is it that themes have been rendered totally inaccessible from PS3 > PS4 > PS5? It feels like something small but people paid for this too, and I still don't understand why they couldn't let ps1/ps2 games purchased on the PS3 psn store be compatible with PS4.
I know this all takes a lot of time and money to develop but I think it can only be worth it to reward the people who've bought into Sony's ecosystem. But here we are, with psp and ps vita games about to become obsolete, and instead of trying to work on any type of ps3 emulation we're stuck with a completely not fit for purpose streaming service that to this day still only offers 17 games for PS2 on it's European page. I think it's still not even available in Australia so what the hell is up with "For the Players"? I don't think it's very for the players to introduce a price hike that makes games in Europe suddenly 90 dollars when we were paying around 65 before. It's crazy and dumb and I wish I'd bought into Xbox's ecosystem instead because whatever was the point in owning a PS1/2/3/4 if I'm not even being incentivised at all to continue supporting them? The games? All 2 games on PS5 considering I can play all the rest on my ps4 if I want to.
I'm just super annoyed with all the anti consumerist stuff they've been putting out, and EVEN MORE annoyed with the people defending it.
