Spoke too soon, tried to replace the HDMI IC on my slim PS3 with a shitty soldering iron with predictable results... now I'm in the market for another one lol
You should import one over from Japan. PS3s are dirt cheap over there now, and you can find a boxed Slim console with an original controller and all the cables for $60-$70. It’s crazy.

Here, Burning Fight, scoop this. $60 CIB, confirmed working.

Thanks Digmacman, but JP shipping is currently Surface/DHL only for Brazil. Definitely worth it if you have airmail with Japan Post still established for your country though!

I actually bought a Silver Satin CECHH00. Always wanted to have a FAT so it's going to be a fun stopgap to another slim until this inevitably fails :lolz:

Just got the email as well. Looks like you still will have access to download purchased games. Good

Another bummer is Breath of Fire III isn't available in the NA PSN for Vita.

Anyone know the specific reason? I know that there was a potential legal problem with releasing it in NA. The most detailed info I could find was that there was a "legal issue with one of the character models".

If I didn't have all these original PS1 game original discs I might be more upset. Tho I have feeling the market for these games are going to go up now that the store is going away. Seriously games like Suikoden II are fucking awesome but the physical disc price is outrageously fucking stupid.

Time to hook up the PS3 and check what I might be missing from that RPG list.

What's with the JP PS Classic games that are on the US PSN store anyway? They have a handful of Japanese games no one's ever heard of before, untranslated, and they all seem to be reliant on being able to read adult level Japanese. Why couldn't they have just put something people would actually buy that's already on the JP store, like Battle Arena Toshinden

This 100%. I never understood why Battle Arena Toshinden 1, 2 Plus, and 3 made it to the japanese psn but not to the north american store... and yet, Battle Arena Toshinden was eventually included on the north american Playstation Classic console.

Oddly enough, King of Fighters 95 got a similar treatment. KOF 99 for ps1 made it to the north american psn, yet the english port of kof95 was omitted even though all kof titles made it to the japanese psn.

I’m not sure if it was an SNK Playmore decision or a Sony one, but the heavy SNK support for ps1 classics on the japanese psn pretty much guaranteed that I bought all my ps1 classics from the japanese store exclusively.

I wonder if you will still be able to download patches and updates after the stores close? That is one thing I did not see any mention of.

I wish they would have a big fire sale, but I doubt that will happen

I wonder how long netflix will work. Basically my PS3 is a netflix and blueray machine for my son. Would suck for him to lose that compatibility.

If they do cut support for it, I'd say get a cheap Roku. Works perfectly for streaming services.

I think you would need an older one for 480i support, PS3 seems to be the best option for Netflix on a SD CRT via RGB currently

He didn't mention that was his setup, though, and I somewhat doubt he would be running RGB from his PS3 to a CRT so his son could watch Blu Rays. :lolz:

EDIT: I'm stupid.

Actually that is exactly what im doing. My son is 2 and he already broke one flatscreen tv a few months ago. With a CRT he can go ham and throw his toy dinosaurs at it without me freaking out.

I stand corrected then. How are you running RGB to the CRT?

Oh its composite not RGB. Just morso agreeing with the PS3 running to the crt. So its very handy in my case. Don't know what options Id have once the ps3 loses support. Unless I can configure a streaming device to go back that far.

Or maybe by that time it loses support he'll be older and more careful with the tv.

Ah, gotcha. Does the CRT support component by chance? If so, an HDMI to component converter might not be a bad option. Cheap ones can be had for around $20-$25. At least that way you could use a wide range of cheaper streaming devices for him.

You could run Rgb to a CRT with PS3. Just use a ps2 scart cable and change video output from HDMI to RGB. I hooked up my PS3 to my pvm to run Castlevania Chronicles on it. Looks damn good.

For sure, I’ve done that with a PVM before as well. I was more curious what his specific setup was like for his son.

IIRC, the costume of a boss character named "Stallion" in the localized version had the same color scheme & design motifs as the first iconic Ultraman from eponymous 1966 JP tv show.
