Not a game or anything, but I'm working on a dumb little web scraper thing that will scan the playstation website (from your desktop Chrome browser) and pull all the Playstation games you own (that it knows about) into a text file, for use with importing into say, a database so you can remember which games you own so you don't buy the same one twice. (Like Playnite (https://playnite.link/))

While it works fine for me, it would be nice to have it tested by some others too, to see if it works with other countries or whatever.

I'll probably finish it up later today and post the file here and github with some instructions on how to use it. (it's pretty easy...)

So any brave volunteers (with Playstation accounts)?

Created a new account and "purchased" Fortnite. Playstation Store won't let me use /en-us page, and when redirected to my local one (/ru-ru), generic "something's not right" message pops up. There's one download-list-item__left-product-info but no paginator-control's.

Could you post a screenshot of what /en-us version of the page looks like?

Nevermind, changed "Playable On:" and "Game" in script code to Russian ("Совместимые системы:" and "Игра"), got the result:

{
"games": [
{
"title": "Fortnite",
"Size": "6.69 Гб",
"PurchaseDate": "4/7/2019",
"Platforms": [
"PS4"
],
"productID": "EP1464-CUSA07669_00-FORTNITETESTING1"
}
]
}

It relies on finding a "Next" button, and I didn't have one (as there's only one game), so I had to comment the "startButton" thing out.
