Game news PS Store closure PS3 and PS Vita: Sony changes its mind Published on 04/19/2021 at 7:32 pm, updated on 04/19/2021 at 7:35 pm On March 29th, Sony announced very bad news: The PlayStation Store will close its doors for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in the coming weeks. Obviously, it was difficult for players who did not wait long to be heard on social networks to get this information. And that’s a good thing, because this general dissatisfaction saved the digital shop. No closure of the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on July 2, 2021 and August 27, 2021, here is the (very) good news of the day! Players have made their voices heard, and Sony has decided to listen: the Japanese manufacturer will therefore retrace the fate of its digital business on the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita. We recently warned gamers that the PlayStation Store on PS3 and PS Vita would be closing this summer. However, after careful consideration, we discovered that we had made the wrong decision. Because of this, I’m excited to announce that we won’t be closing the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita in the end. On the other hand, as planned, it will disappear from the PSP on July 2, 2021. When we decided to stop shopping for the PS3 and PS Vita, we based it on a number of factors including the challenges associated with supporting older devices and the ability to focus our resources on those. Newer devices that the majority of our users are playing on. We’ve found many of you wish you could keep buying classics for the PS3 and PS Vita. I am glad we were able to find a solution. Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Good news, the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita are no longer doomed to dust in the back of a closet. However, as you can see for yourself, the fate of the PSP is not so glorious. Finally, on July 2, 2021, the PlayStation Store will close its doors on the Sony portable console.
