This summer, you won't be able to make any new purchases on PS3/PS Vita/PSP. However, you can still re-download games you've already purchased. This is why I'm calling it semi-shutdown rather than full shutdown where you can't re-download anything. But if there's anything you wanted, better get it soon. Who knows when they'll pull the plug entirely. https://www.ign.com/articles/playstatio ... 3-vita-psp

Sony is making a bad choice there.
This is one of the reasons why they should consider to implement full backwards compatibility on their future consoles.

I bought a 10,000 yen PSN card to preserve some DLC before it disappears: https://forum.no-intro.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3716

I won't be able to grab everything I want though (too expensive).

Remember everyone, God Hand, my pick for Capcom's best ever console game next to RE6 is only 10 bucks on the PS3 store. A few survival horror classics, such as the Siren and Fatal Frame games, are also most likely cheaper than what you would have to pay for the actual discs. Don't miss them.

Damn, we need to compile a list of must have Shmups that are digital only. I'm not familiar with PS3 since it's been ages since I've had one, but for PSP/Vita, shienryu and gaiaseed are playable for $5 and alternatively will cost you an arm and a leg physically. get them while you can, because they're going to be gone forever and physical copies are going to skyrocket even further.

I really need help listing PS3 Japanese digital only Shmups. I remember it getting some good ones we never got.

Keep in mind the JPSN has a ton of PS1 games(and a few PS2/PCE ones). Thunder Force V is on there, as well as Salamander Collection.

I made an idiot's guide to accessing their amazing PS1 section here:
