    I mean, there are workarounds, but Sony probably doesn't want to incentivize them since the entire reason that the Vita had its extremely unpopular proprietary memory cards was to prevent (or rather, delay) exactly those type of workarounds.

    Now that the store is at least somewhat secure (though I wish that they brought back the previous version of the PC PSN store, at least for the Vita and PS3 since the console versions of those stores suuuuck and the new PC PSN Store sucks just as much, in different ways; who the hell thought that it was a good idea to not give you the chance to organize the Sales lists by at least name or genre, and why aren't they showing screenshots/video or lists of DLC in the individual games' pages?), I can go back to being pissed off about how they handled Studio JAPAN, which has consistently been putting out some of the best games of every generation it was active in.

    They could fix it with a patch, but considering the same issue is on the PS5, it seems like this isn't really a priority for them. The only other option is to hack your console, which is nonsense. You shouldn't have to hack your console just to make it do it's basic core function.

    it can be fixed with a firmware update, the reason it probably isn't a huge priority is because the CMOS battery lasts for 10-20 years before it starts wearing out

    10 years for the PS4 will be 2023. That's not that far off. And if you go off what they were doing with the PS3 before reversing the decision, it was 15 years after the launch of the PS3 when they started shutting down online functionality. That would be 2028 with the PS4. These things are coming up sooner than you think.

    So basically a couple days ago Sony revealed they may not have PS5's mass produced on retail atore shelves until 2023. This launch has to be the worst in history.

    Maybe they should reach out to the scalpers and make them official Sony retail partners.

    I'm not saying this is all because it makes absolutely no sense to call a product a "digital edition" because it doesn't have a drive that can read digital optical discs, but I'm going to take it as a win for common sense anyway.

    Its been said scalpers have had more inventory than actual retailers. Its became a joke for the company at this stage. For months people have pushed Sony to start direct ordering from retailers (think of the old JCPenny model where you could order something from store and wait on it to come in). Sony refuses to do it and were in this situation.

    The Epic vs Apple trial revealed that Sony charges developers for enabling crossplay on PS4. No wonder more games don't have it.

    All that mess, just to ensure that Sony got kickback. Should call it the Sony Poorstation.

    They are far from poor when they sell as much as they do and found a way to profit even more
