Idk, all this feels like a completely manufactured concern. Like i wrote in another thread;
You will probably encounter other hardware issues long before this. In PS4s case it will be thermal paste drying up or HDD crashing. The PS5 will probably have a way longer lifespan when it comes to that though so it may become an issue in a decade or more. All this is such hyperbole.
Also, isnt this issue solved by simply replacing the battery and boot up with an internet connection? Thats my interpretation at least
But these servers don't go offline it's the stores that get shutdown...once you have bought the game its saved to your account and your account...The issue is that if the servers for activations are taken offline then you are fucked. The concern has come about cause Sony are killing the old stores, if this includes the servers for activation then there is nothing that you can do.
