I was reading more about this today, and it makes me want to NOT buy more PS4 games, physical or otherwise!

Although the battery issue sucks, the online check in with PSN is the worst part. I have no confidence Sony will bother to keep that part of PSN functional, assuming PSN in its current form even still exists!

Now I wish I bought a physical copy of Scott Pilgrim on the Switch! Stopped myself because I have it on PS3...

Oh dear... looks like the few ps5 users there are are outta luck too. And given the artificial scarcity and how faulty the new system still is, this sucks.

Keep an eye out for Best Buy getting some copies of Scott Pilgrim. I believe the Limited Run Games website said they might be getting some.
