The PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita is really about to shut down

PlayStation Store

Rumors of shutting down support for PS3, PS Vita, and PSP parts of the PlayStation Store, which surfaced a few days ago, have been officially confirmed.

After quietly shutting down the old web version of the PlayStation Store these days, Sony has also officially confirmed the permanent shutdown of all digital PS3, PS Vita, and PSP departments.

First in line for shutdown is the PS3 store. This will happen on July 2, when at the same time any possibility of buying PSP games will be abolished. On the other hand, the PS Vita store will “survive” a bit longer, as it will be shut down on August 27th.

After the shutdown of these services, it will no longer be possible to purchase digital content for PS3, PS Vita, and PSP, which means any purchase, from the games themselves, through microtransactions to video content. It will not be possible to top up the wallet, as it will not be possible to redeem the purchase vouchers either. The remaining amount will be available for the purchase of PS4 and PS5 games via the web, PlayStation App, and, of course, consoles.
