Navigating Sony stuff is like Aloy not climbing a Tallneck and the world is just clouds and fog of unknown.
Yesterday It was said that Funimation had their content moved to Crunchyroll. I looked to move my que lists over and No it turns out only some stuff and only new stuff but maybe someday other stuff.
Nice and foggy Sony.

So funimation is merging with crunchy roll… but what happens to existing subscribers of funimation?

My 1 year $60 sub just renewed, and I feel like I may have potentially got screwed by this merger.

I have the adapter for the PS3 to where I imported PS1/2 data. Not sure if they could go on the cloud though...Can't remember if I tried that.

I totally forgot about the adaptor. They could totally make something work along with the cloud but seeing how they treat BC I doubt we will even get PS1/PS2 games bigger than the PS4’s classics library.


But…..Hopefully Sony looked at Nintendo’s Sub service of retro games and Xbox’s Gamepass and between the 2, Sony thought Nintendo’s route is better suited for Playstation as they make alot of good money selling 1st party titles

Im intrigued to see whats on my old memory cards. PS2 defo has a Kingdom Hearts save final just before the last boss haha

Are you implying that I can dig out my PS2 MC to PS3 adapter at long last? It's been so long...


Yes, that's it! That's the one I have. Imported the data from my mem cards to import onto PS3.

Man this should be easy. They own both, they should merge it properly. I got put off subscribing to crunchy rolly and funimation because I had to switch between the 2 and sometimes neither had what I was looking for.
Hopefully they merge it properly

Ps now was a great philosophical idea, true backwards compatible systems need to be in gaming’s LONG TERM plan.

PS Now was fine for what it is but wasn’t a focus like Gamepass is to MS. Like everyone still thinks you have to stream everything and it wasn’t competing with the huge titles MS puts on Gamepass.

The ps3 streaming is understandable given the circumstances and it works fine for me. It would be great if Sony made a ps3 emulator though.
 
I also think we're going to see Crunchyroll Premium Fan on PS+'s top tier as a permanent feature.

The Xbox deal may need to expire before they want to go live and that won't happen until April 24th.
Could be one of the reasons why we haven't heard of Spartacus yet -- depending on CR's contract with MS.

Well! My current status is 3 months of PS+ and 12 months of PS Now. And I appear to have lost the latter completely. So rather than upgrade my PS+, my PS Now has been downgraded. If this is correct, then I shall be filing a complaint. You heard it here first!

The last day to take advantage of the 75 days of free Crunchyroll was February 8th.

So in April that is over.

Probably not related but if it is revealed in April and it does have Crunchyroll included, we know that may have been a factor.

Edit: Actually, I've gotten the dates wrong. Apparently, there was a deadline to claim it and a deadline to redeem it. The deadline to redeem was March 2nd, so this won't expire until May 16th.

I have ps+ until 2025 (bought 4-5 years around 2020) and it shows only that, so it wont convert old subs it seems, or not at EU at least?

Now that you mentioned, just checked, also from Portugal and this is what i have:



Same thing. Same date for both. The one that i renewed more recently is the date set for both (i think).All subs images didn't load as well which is odd. Something is happening for sure.

In mine the dates all changed. First i didnt renewed plus on the last day of the year and PS now i subscribed when there was that promo of 50% off.

So seems that they are moving PS Now to become a higher tier of PS Plus, as Bloomberg said.

Notice that in all cases both are named PS Plus there (but appear twice, as being 2 diferent tiers/subs even both now are name PS Plus) and have the same renovation date (are a single service).

Bloomberg said they planned to release it this spring, so maybe they are implementing internally some things and this part already became visible even if the whole service still isn't up.

It seems it's only the web part that's changed. When I looked at the subs on my console, it was still showing the correct subscriptions.

I subscribed to both Now and PS+, and now the website says I have two separate 12 month PS+ subscriptions renewing on 4/7.

I didn’t keep up with this but just got charged $64 for a full year of PS+. I have never had auto renew on for a full year sub. They fucked something up.

Yes, I know that. But what happens if currently you have both Plus and Now? Do you get one year of standard and one year of premium when it switches?
Their customer service is being vague in USA. They’re just saying both subscriptions will be merged into a single subscription with one recurring billing date. But they won’t clarify when the end date would be if you have say years of ps plus but subscribe to ps now monthly. They’re saying more information will be available closer to launch.

In USA they turned off the ability to load cards at the registers so even if you find an old Now card and pay for it no value is added to it. You have to file a complaint with the company that activates the cards and send in the card and receipt to get them to send you a working code.
