Sony to continue to support PS3 & PS Vita storefronts

A few weeks ago, we learned that Sony was aiming to close the storefronts of PS3, PSP and PS Vita which would prevent users who wish to continue to use and purchase games digitally on these platforms the inability to do so. Well, the community cried out pretty loudly about this and it seems that Sony is backtracking on their decision. Well, part of it. Here is what they said in a blog post:

Upon further reflection, however, it’s clear that we made the wrong decision here. So today I’m happy to say that we will be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices. PSP commerce functionality will retire on July 2, 2021 as planned.

When we initially came to the decision to end purchasing support for PS3 and PS Vita, it was born out of a number of factors, including commerce support challenges for older devices and the ability for us to focus more of our resources on newer devices where a majority of our gamers are playing on. We see now that many of you are incredibly passionate about being able to continue purchasing classic games on PS3 and PS Vita for the foreseeable future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue operations.

This is a huge win for gamers who wish to preserve their digital purchases. While this isn't a permanent solution for digital downloads, this is a positive step in the right direction. Now if Sony could potentially fix that CBOMB issue on their PS4, PS5 and PS3 consoles next. That would be awesome.


Microsoft, please consider doing the same!
