THIS. PS3 is a 15yo console, whoever really wanted to play games on it already did a looong time ago.
But that's just true, most people have moved away from the a PS3 a long time ago, if it wasn't for the store closure news no one would bother with going back to PS3.
Over the past 5 years, half the games I played for the first time in my life were released 10+ years ago. Most on PC, but you can bet a lot more would have been on a PlayStation if more overall were available on the various modern stores.
There are tens of thousands of video games released in the PS1, PS2 and PS3 era, even if you were around back them (and a lot of gamers weren't) it doesn't mean you "already played all of them". There is a lot of stuff you might not have known about, or took a liking to more recently, or you simply never got around to playing and then forgot about it.
This is such a dumb take on the removal of thousands of games from sale, some of which were never made available anywhere else or were basically impossible to buy legitimately unless you wanted to pay ridiculous prices. Imagine all movies released before 1970 being removed form sale and streaming everywhere, and you going around saying "Well they're old, if you wanted to watch them you would have by now anyway." Entertainment and media don't need an expiration date.
