A Strange goings on…
While wasting my time not writing a PSVita review I managed to find out that Sony managed to mess up my PSOneClassics. It seems like this has something to do with the update Sony made to PSN (Now SEN).
Now when you try to copy PSoneclassic games you downloaded on your PS3 you’ll see that the Copy function is missing. Having 30 PSoneClassic titles on my PS3 I was kind of surprised that they were now unplayable on my PSP, so I called up Sony support.
Sony support told me to delete and download a title again, but sadly now the titles won’t download to the PS3, and you just get a “Please Wait” screen while it fails to load. The games do still download on the PSP directly, but this is a huge inconvenience for PSone Classic gamers. Especially for the real classic games that are 1 gig or more, remember, the PSP’s wifi is slow, and there’s no continue download option if your PSP’s connection is cut off. You’ll have to download it all over again.
Ideas as to why this has screwed up now?
This most likely has something to do with the PSVita’s launch, I’ve had the same problems with other games like Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus (for PSVita, that I purchased but won’t download). Valkyria Chronicles 2, (that won’t download on the PS3, and my original download told me to delete and re-download), and the Reality Fighters Demo won’t download either. This is a huge problem and it seems like Sony doesn’t have any idea what to do about it. Honestly the content manager system on the Vita is a mess, and it seems to have messed up the rest of PSN as well.
It seems like Sony has screwed up another feature of the PS3 with their attempts at preventing piracy. Other content loads on the store fine, but if you want to buy PSoneClassics to play on your PS3 anytime soon, you might be shit out of luck.
God damnit Sony.
