The thing I love about PS3 and PSN more than their competitors, is that I can buy a digital copy of a new popular game on release day. I wish I could do that from the web, but still. Now I just need to get a bigger hard drive. With PS Plus and some of the sales we’ve had over the year, I’m almost maxed.

Time to fire up Sound Shapes again. Also, I was wondering if the Dualshock 4 would be compatible with the PS3? I know the touchpad would not be usable. I like what I’ve seen of the controller and was hopeful I could use it for GTA V.

+ neuropunk on August 6th, 2013 at 2:09 pm said:

7 years after the PS3 launched, we get to alphabetically sort our music, alphabetically sort our movies, our trophies are alphabetically sorted, but why aren’t our digital games sorted alphabetically? Why can we only sort by creation date and recently played?
Not talking about the store download list, but that would be nice too. No, I’m wondering why I can’t go to play a game in the list of 80 or so games I bought, PS+ games and demos, and have them alphabetically sorted. I am a bit OCD with it.
It’s funny how if you reset the PS3 File System that all the games default to alphabetical, but there is no way to keep them like that.
So, anyway I am just wondering why you guys have not implemented alphabetical sorting in a firmware update. And no, folders are not the same, and folders are not what I am asking.

Please help!

+ BirdmanHB on August 6th, 2013 at 2:21 pm said:

Why not start supplementing games with DLC with Plus? Some DLC on older games needs to be discounted or free and Plus is the perfect way to do it. For example, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a 5 year old game that can now be purchased on disc for $5-10, yet to play the DLC we would have to spend $30. That is pretty ridiculous for a 5 year old game, so why not throw DLC for older games on Plus for free or at a discount. I would buy DLC for several older games if the price would drop. SW:TFU being one of them, but i refuse to pay $30.
