I got a mail from PS briefing about their PS Store updates going in effect from Oct. 21 to 26, up to 28 stating that it will no longer be able to purchase ps3 games, psp and vita from the web and mobile app of the store anymore. However you will still be able to do it from the ps3 hardware, as well as psp and vita hardware respectively.

Hi M markusho3k ,

Our brand-new PlayStation™Store launches on web and mobile from 21 – 26 October 2020, and we are making some changes to the content you can access on PS Store via your desktop and mobile devices.

What is changing?
The following changes will come into effect online from 21 – 26 October, and on mobile on 28 October:

• You will no longer be able to buy:
o PlayStation®3 games and add-ons
o PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) games and add-ons
o PlayStation®Vita games and add-ons
o Apps
o Themes
o Avatars

• The Wishlist feature will be discontinued and any items currently on “Your Wishlist” will be removed.

What does this mean for you?
The content listed above will no longer be available to buy on PS Store when accessed via a desktop or mobile device. However, you will still be able to buy PS3™, PSP or PS Vita content by accessing PS Store directly from your PS3, PSP or PS Vita. PlayStation®4 apps, themes and avatars can also be downloaded via PS Store on your PS4™ console.

What about the content you already own?
You will still be able to access all your previously purchased PS3, PSP or PS Vita content as before. Your existing PS4 apps, themes and avatars will remain on your PS4 console.

Where can you find out more?

Sony shut down access to PlayStation Store on PSP a few years ago. As it stands now, you cannot purchase any new content from a PSP system, but you can still download anything that you previously purchased.

With the above in mind, are they going to reactivate PlayStation Store on PSP?
