So I know that some blacklisted games on PSTV are actually impossible to complete ( i.e. Golden Abyss requires special input methods on certain parts). My question is:

Which other games are rightfully blacklisted on PSTV?

There is no such thing as "rightfully blacklisted" games, Killzone Mercenary has touch controls that need 2 fingers at the time to perform stealth executions, to make it "PS TV compatible" the devs simply released a small update patch that uses the analog sticks to perform those actions and then Sony whitelisted the game.

Sony could have done something similar on the Uncharted game, the special camera inputs are just a couple of mimicky minigames totally tucked-in and completely unncessary, they could have released an update that simply skips these minigames altogether if playing in a PS TV.

Games blacklisted on PS TV arent really compatibility issues as Sony always tried to make it look like.

Yeah I know about that, but for instance Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is also blacklisted and as far as I know it doesn't need any fix via a small patch. I guess another interesting question will be if it possible to make unoficial patches for those games with the game dumper being available online :unsure:

If you think about it, why was Killzone Mercenary updated and Uncharted not? Both first party games owned by Sony...

Well Uncharted was a launch game that Sony was not profiting from anymore while everyone was still talking about and buying Killzone.

MGS is not owned by Sony so it was probably a license issue and they didn't try to reach out konami.

But regarding your questions yeah, since games are decrypted, we can run unsigned code and mod games we could totally make a permanent patch, we just need someone to figure it out.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
    for people with beefy hands.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot

    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
