PlayStation Store on PS3 and PS Vita will still be available, Sony will not close it – Nerd4.life
PlayStation Store will continue to be available on PS3 and PS Vita, it will not close this summer
PlayStation Store will not close the PS3 and PS Vita sections, thus remaining available on such platforms with Sony that has changed its mind and made a sensational turnaround compared to the decision that he had already officially announced in recent days, meeting the requests of the many users who had taken action to protest this initiative.
“We recently notified players that the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita was due to end this summer,” reads the official announcement on the official PlayStation blog. However, “after further reflection, it seems clear to us that it is one wrong decision. So today I am happy to say that we will keep the PlayStation Store operational on PS3 and PS Vita, while the commercial features of the PSP version will be closed on July 2, 2021 as planned. ”
It is clear that much of this change of mind comes from strong grievances carried out by a large part of users and also the media, given that the maneuver was received very negatively by a large number of people. Not for nothing, at the end of the PlayStation blog post, Sony thanks users for their feedback, showing that the decision also derived from their requests.
Initially, the decision to discontinue purchase functionality for PS3 and PS Vita arose from a number of factors, including difficulties related to the support of commercial functions for older devices and the ability to focus more resources on the newer devices that most of our users play. However we realized that many fans really care to the possibility of being able to continue buying classic titles for PS3 and PS Vita in the near future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue to guarantee these features.
I’m delighted to be able to keep this piece of our story alive for gamers as we continue to create cutting-edge new game worlds for PS4, PS5 and the next generation of VR.
All is well that ends well, it can be said, but the suggestions we have already reported with the best games to buy for PlayStation Vita and the best games for PS3 remain valid, even if now there is no more rush to have to do it by the summer.
