Bro what kind of logic is this? why are you telling me that i should buy the game on Ps3 (a console released 14 years ago) that i don't have when i'm looking for the PC version that's an actual abandonware???

HELP 2020-07-31 0 point

since you guys uploaded Virtua Fighter 2 again (btw thanks for that) can you please upload the PC version of this too? and all PS Store games too that aren't available on PC! much appreciated.

It is available on the PS Store, but it's for the PSVita and PS3, both of which sony, from what I understand, no longer officially supports. But this is abandonware on PC, as you cannot buy this on PC. -- you also cannot buy this on PS4/Xbox etc etc.

What kind of an idea was to remove the file from a PC game so people buy the PS3 version?!
