News: PlayStation Store Will Stop Selling PS3, PSP, and Vita Games Through Web and Mobile

Recommended Posts

The PlayStation Store experience is about to receive an overhaul soon as Sony makes plans to limit what’s available to purchase on the web and mobile versions of its digital store. In an email sent to PlayStation development partners — which IGN has independently verified — Sony says that starting on October 19 for web and October 28 for mobile, certain digital products will no longer be available for purchase. This includes:

  • PlayStation 3 games and add-ons
  • PSP games and add-ons
  • PlayStation Vita games and add-ons
  • Apps
  • Themes
  • Avatars
  Sony is also doing away with the “Your Wishlist” feature and any games currently on the wishlist will be removed. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=confirmed-playstation-5-games&captions=true"] Going forward, customers will still be able to purchase PS3, PSP, and Vita titles from the PlayStation store but only directly from the system. So you’ll need a PS3 or Vita to purchase any of the previous-gen titles. And you’ll need a PS4 to purchase apps, themes, and avatars. Sony assured its partners that customers will keep content from older-gen systems they’ve previously purchased, as well as any existing PS4 apps, themes, and avatars. Whether this move comes ahead of a next-gen overhaul, or something else, IGN has reached out to Sony for further clarification. Meanwhile, check out our PS5 guide for the latest info on Sony's next-gen plans. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Matt T.M. Kim is a reporter for IGN.
