Sony has revealed it is planning on closing several stores for older PlayStation platforms later this year.
The company has officially announced after days of rumors that the PlayStation Store will no longer support the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and the PSP. The three platforms will be dropped in the summer.
According to an official press release sent out by Sony, the PS3 and PS Vita stores will close on August 27, while the PSP store will no longer function from July 2.
Players who have previously purchased content will still be able to access the content from their download lists on the individual consoles. Multi-platform cross-buy purchases will also still be possible. However, new purchases will be impossible from the summer dates listed above.
From the summer, any remaining cash balance in a user’s PSN wallet will only work with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 purchases. Those who don’t own the latest systems or simply want their wallet balance back will be able to organize refunds through the PlayStation website.
