Gone are the days when you had to buy a cartridge to get the entire game. In a fully connected world, it suffices for the manufacturer or publisher to decide to close their services, so that you will not be able to access their game and their updates. This is the case of Sony, which should soon announce the closure of online stores on Playstation 3, PSP and PS Vita.

It’s the end of the beans
It is not yet official from Sony, but the site The player Just release information the source of which appears to be relatively reliable. Naturally, at the end of this month, Sony will announce the closure of the PS Store on Playstation 3 and PSP on July 2, 2021, as well as the PS Vita on August 27th.
Many of the games available on these devices are not currently available on Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. Which means that with the store closed, it will not be possible to access the large number of games that we had previously purchased. At least everything will depend on Sony, as store purchase can be closed, but the games we got may not be downloading. Everything depends on the policy and declarations of the Japanese manufacturer.
In any case, this would mean stopping distribution of the entire range of Playstation 1 and 2 games on Playstation 3. Beautiful classics that will no longer be available to new players, not to mention the indie games only available on the PS Vita. In any case, this would be a continuation of Sony, which is the market for Playstation 5, while slowly abandoning production of the various models of Playstation 4.
