They dont make the controller anymore so why do they care what people do with the console they dont support anymore?

I dont care about hacking but I would like some brand new Dualshock 3 controllers.
And dont come telling people to buy Dualshock 4 because its not compatible with all games.

Sony has a long history of doing things just to inconvenience people. Things like blu-ray disc price fixing, Cutting out features like PS2 bc, or ANY bc on PS4, etc. They basically only do it as contempt.
25+ years of gaming taught me one important life lesson. You normally don't have to push start at the main menu.

They still give out PS plus games too. Most are garbage, but yeah how does Sony expect us to play without a controller.

Did the new firmware update break some controller compatibility or something?

I think he's saying it's weird for Sony to go out of their way to stop hacking of a system they don't even sell anymore. Why bother with pirates if you can't bother with the customers, basically.

I mean, digital games still go on sale so the PS3 can still be profitable.

That said, it's pretty stupid of them to ban hackers with CFW who still want to make legitimate purchases. I guess that's why Nintendo looks the other way.

What gets me is how there isn't really a good third party controller for the PS3 (or PS4) unless you count the Power A Fus1on on PS3, but that's wired and it's kind of tough to go back to a wired controller after using a wireless one. But on the PS4 there isn't a controller that has all the functions of the Dualshock 4.

Plus none of the third party ones have working home/PS buttons, so you still need an official one if you wanna access the XMB from a game.

They probably hope that everyone cancels their PS+ subscription on PS3, because they probably don't want to throw everyone out themselves (which they can) and then make everyone lose their "free" games. lol

they stopped producing new DS3's?

damn, and the quality of new controllers were plummeting. hell, my older DS3 doesn't have ghost movement, just very wobbly sticks from uses. so i attempted 3 new controllers and its like, they cant release them without ghost movement a few days after use. the controller i'm using now gets it all the time, but an odd trick that works is running a little rubbing alcohol through the sticks opening, rotate the stick, leave it alone. then its back to normal for awhile before the next act up.

All that s*** with the PSP made them paranoid af. Can’t blame them for not wanting a second pirate’s haven.
