The new take over the old, 2021 might be the end of another era.
It has been almost two decades since the release of the great three. PS3, PSP, and PS Vita were some of the top sellers back in the early 2000s. However, after years of support and service from Sony, it might be the end of the road for them. Sony has decided to shut down the PlayStation Store on PS3, PSP, and PS Vita.
Currently, digital purchases are one of the only ways to still buy games for old consoles. As we enter a new generation of consoles, Manufacturers and Developers have switched to new consoles and slowly drop support for the old ones. PS3, PSP, and PS Vita have been around for a long time, and developers have stopped making new games for them.
Although fans can still purchase and play old games using the PlayStation store. A recent report by The Gamer, confirms the news about Sony shutting down digital Purchases for PS3, PSP, and PS Vita via the Playstation Store in 2021.
So what does this mean for fans? Well, you will no longer be able to buy new games or download them from the store, but you can still use CDs to install and play them. Sony has not yet said anything regarding if players can still access their digitally purchased DLC’s and games. But, this change is due in July of 2021 and will be announced by Sony later this month.
