Sony has today announced some PlayStation Store news that will make retro game lovers as well as PS3 and PS Vita owners very pleased.
The Japanese tech and gaming giant has revealed that they will be reversing a recently announced decision to stop PS3 and PS Vita PlayStation Store purchases in the near future.
It had previously been revealed that later this summer PlayStation Store purchases on the PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3 would be disabled.
And while Sony will stop PlayStation Store purchases on the PSP on July 2, the PS3 and PS Vita will no longer see Store purchases pulled.
The news was announced today by SIE President and CEO Jim Ryan, who in a blog post said after “further reflection” PS Vita and PS3 PlayStation Store purchaes will remain.
Ryan said: “Recently, we notified players that PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita devices was planned to end this summer.
“Upon further reflection, however, it’s clear that we made the wrong decision here.
“So today I’m happy to say that we will be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices. PSP commerce functionality will retire on July 2, 2021 as planned.”
