Sony backtracks and will not close the Playstation Store for PS3 and PS Vita

After a very bad acceptance on the part of its users, Sony has decided to keep alive the stores of games and services of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita

Sony reverses its decision to close the PlayStation Store online store on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, although it will close the PSP store, after the announcement of the definitive closure of the service on these consoles, which means that users will be able to continue downloading content and video games on both platforms.

PlayStation had announced in late March that it would be shutting down the PlayStation Store service on PS3, PS Vita and PSP during the coming summer. Now, through a statement on the official PlayStation blog, the president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, has assured that they made “the wrong decision.”

In this way, the company announces that the official online store will remain open on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita indefinitely, although it maintains its closure for PSP on July 2.

Ryan has stated that the original decision to close had been given by some challenges of commercial support of the older devices and to focus its resources on the new generations of consoles where the majority of gamers are.

However, the president assures that they have seen that many of the users still have a lot of desire to “be able to buy classic games on PS3 and PS Vita” and that the new decision allows finding a solution to continue the operation of the store.

Although the majority of video games on these consoles can be purchased through other methods or platforms, many were to be discontinued after the Store closed. In particular, 138 titles such as Echochrome II, Infamous: Festival of Blood or Lumines Supernova were going to be lost, according to a list compiled by VGC.
