What does the end of PlayStation Store for PS3, PS Vita and PSP mean?

See how the end of access to PS3 and portable content on the Playstation Store, via the web and smartphones influences your gaming

Due to the launch of Playstation 5, Sony is completely revamping its online store, Playstation Store. From October 21, 2020, it will not be possible to access content from the company’s oldest platforms, through the computer with browsers and smartphones. Understand what the end of Playstation Store for PS3, PS Vita and PSP.

The end of the Playstation Store on PS3, PS Vita and PSP

When reading that it will not be possible to access content from older Sony platforms, such as the PS3 warrior and his portable brothers, the first thing that many people thought was: “I will not be able to play online and buy content for these consoles anymore”.

Not quite, calm down. The picture is not serious at this point. We will still be able to access all content related to the old consoles.

As informed by an email sent by Sony to Playstation Network users, it will be possible to access and buy content such as games and expansions for the old consoles (PS3, PS Vita and PSP), through the native versions of the Playstation Store, available on these devices, after the period of implementation of the changes, between 21 to 28 October.

Will I lose my games with the end of the PS Store on PS3 and laptops?

No. You can rest assured, everything that was purchased by you on these consoles will still be available to be accessed and downloaded normally in the Playstation Store of each device.

Changes for Playstation 4

Games and expansions for the Playstation 4 will continue to be accessed via the web and smartphones. However, themes, apps and avatars will only be seen in the PS4 version of the Playstation Store.

The Playlist 4 wish list function will also be discontinued and all items you have placed there will be deleted. I consider this a pity, since the wish list was an interesting function to keep track of promotions of games that were on the radar. We will wait to see if Sony implements a function that replaces this in the new PS Store.

Is it worth having or buying one of these consoles after these changes?

It depends. There are some variables here:

If you already have one of these consoles, nothing relevant will change for you, so there is no need to dispose of the console.

If you are a collector, I believe it will not make much difference either. After all, collectors care about having the device working and that will not change.

Now, for people who want to buy a console to play, I think it is better to buy a Playstation 4. The console has a wide variety of games, it will still be supported for some good years and most games have active online support.

Will I be able to continue playing online on old consoles?

At first, yes, because Sony did not say anything about the exclusion of access from these platforms to their servers. However, it is worth remembering that online matches are related to the servers of each company / game, so because they are old games, many have had their online services closed.

Anyway, there is no reason for despair, as the only thing that will change at this moment is the slightly more restricted way of accessing the content of the Playstation Store.

Let’s take advantage that we were reminded of the existence of the PS3, PS Vita, PSP and put the backlog on.
