According to a source verified by The Gamer, PS3, PSP and PS Vita stores They are expected to close from July of this year, a fact that is expected to be announced by PlayStation at the end of this month. And is that, although the company has not commented on the matter, the plans are already underway.
July 2 This would be the date chosen so that we could no longer enjoy the PSP and PS3 stores. In the case of the PS Vita, this closure would be a bit longer, with its closure starting on August 27, so after these dates it will be impossible to purchase digital copies of the games or any DLC for the games on these consoles.
A closure that would be planned, even if it has not yet been confirmed
Keep in mind that the PSP was launched in 2005 and has sold 81 million units since its launch, just like the PS3, which was launched in 2006, has sold a total of 87 million units. . And although the PS Vita launched in 2011 did not have the expected success, all three consoles are still fully functional to this day.
After 16 years, it looks like Sony start saying goodbye to some of your consoles to focus on the next generation console. If you own one of these consoles and want a game, you should hurry to buy it because if this rumor is true then there is not much time left before removing the service from the store and then we cannot buy only physical games that probably will be. their prices skyrocket.
