There's way too many shmups to count between those 3 consoles, but many are not available digitally in the West or digitally at all. This just forced me to finally jailbreak my Vita and load all the games I wanted to preserve that way, since Sony obviously doesn't give a fuck about keeping games available for people.

If I had to choose favorites, and you only have access to the Western storefront:

Vita:
Darius Burst CS
Fast Striker
Super Hydorah
Gundemoniums

PSP:
Strikers 1945 Plus
NeoGeo Heroes Ultimate Shooting

PS3:
Under Defeat
Space Invaders Infinity Gene
Namco Museum Essentials
Mamorukun Curse!

PCE stuff on PS platforms:
Soldier Blade
Super Star Soldier

PS1 stuff:
Xevious CD G
Zanac x Zanac
Mobile Light Force (maybe..it's just a Westernized port of Gunbird 1)

That's great list
Cant find zanac v zanac on UK store
Ridiculous really that u can't find minis or PS1 classics in their own sections and they don't show up on main list
Unless u know what u looked for you screwed!

Thanks! I haven't even heard of some games. Although, it is hardly possible to know all existing games at all.

On the JP PS3 / PS Vita store I know of the following PS1 & PCE shm’ups and run n guns:

PCE:

Blazing Lazers
Gate of Thunder
Lords of Thunder
Salamander
Soldier Blade
Super Star Soldier

PS1:

Donpachi
Dodonpachi
Einhander
G Darius
Gaia Seed
Gunners Heaven / Rapid Reload
R-Type Delta
R-Types
Shienryu
Sonic Wings Special
Strikers 1945 II
Thunderforce V

Several are also available in the EU & NA stores, but Japan definitely has the most.

Other JP PS1 games I’ve found but yet to buy are:

Cotton

Harmful Park
Raiden
Ray Crisis
Ray Storm
The Game Paradise

Also the PSP remake of Star Soldier is also available on the JP PSN, whilst there are some titles on the 2 PSP Capcom Classic Collections.

There are lots more on JP PSN, but since OP was only asking about the Western storefronts, I just included those. Both Cotton games for PS1, the Twinkle Star Sprites for PS2, and quite a few others you didn't have in your list are also available for those who have JP PSN accounts.

I've not played it, but it should get a nod because of its place in infamy,

it good to get some of these lists down. I have most of these already. The technical issues with these PS1 (and other) games on PS3/Vita (such as lag) make them less essential IMO. Still important games to have access to. Goddammit Sony!

the stores going means that they're probably gonna disconnect PSN from the PS3 very soon too. guess it's time to finally jailbreak mine. :|

i had a feeling this would happen eventually. Sony just doesn't give a shit about preserving the history of titles on their system once they stop becoming profitable and it's a damn shame, because they've got a collection of great works that are pretty much going to disappear, if they haven't already. my copy of Marvel 2 on my PS3 probably makes the console itself a lot more valuable, lol.

Yup! Never a better time than now. There's even some nifty apps for jailbroken PS3s and Vitas that allow you to download games right onto your system using a sort of "spoofed" PSN store that has all content from all regions. It's been a breeze to get my game libraries optimized on them with this system (besides the super old/slow and outdated network cards in both the Vita and PS3..)

All the R-Type games were delisted sometime in the summer of 2012 when IREM went defunct. There was a one-week or so heads-up at the time telling everyone to grab them.

Namco Museum Essentials was also delisted sometime between 2017 and 2018. I don't believe anyone got notice that it was getting delisted ahead of time.

This mass delisting is the worst I've seen. Over 2,000 games and only a few months to buy them if you want them legally as digital downloads. This could be very expensive for some who have a big wish list. Far more expensive than when the Wii Shop channel's plug was pulled since most of those games were cheaper. We also got a six month heads-up on that closure as well.

I'll never understand when companies do this and harm consumer confidence. Especially when more and more they are trying to push for a digital-download only future. Like Sony producing a digital-exclusive PS5 console.

Steam on PC has never done this and I hope even more now that games stay on PC rather than risk erasure on console gaming services.

Huh, didn't know about that.

I think it's the worst in history so far, since digital games are kind of a relatively new thing. Even worse, now that you mention it, Sony also killed the Wishlist function on PSN late last year, so I even lost track of most of the games I was kinda interested in, and I have no motivation to even go track them down again. Fuck Sony. It's just less purchases for them in the end because of all these policies, so I can't even see how this mass delisting benefits them at all. The servers to host all the data of these old games can't even be that much of a strain on their business or bandwidth in the grand scheme of things.

Fuck Sony.

Anyone having trouble downloading their purchases on the PS3? There's a fair number of reports swirling of error codes impeding people's ability to download their games in recent days.

I haven't yet made my final purchases (I have about $100 worth of games on my wishlist), but I'm hoping it clears up shortly so I won't have any difficulty. It's hopefully gotten enough press that Sony will have to investigate and fix it.
