PlayStation Store on PS3, PSP, and Vita is going dark soon

The end of the PlayStation Store is nigh for all owners of a PlayStation 3, PSP, and Vita. After being reported by The Gamer, Sony has now officially confirmed the digital store’s foreclosure. On the web, the stores aren’t even available anymore. The consoles themselves still offer entry, be it with some technical difficulties.

If you feel like paying your respects to the PlayStation Store on one of the aforementioned consoles, you’ll have to be quick about it. On July 2, the curtain will fall for the store on PlayStation 3 and PSP. If you own a Vita, you’ll have some more time to say your goodbyes. Until August 27, to be exact.

What will this all encompass? Essentially, this will mean that you won’t be able to buy digital content anymore. No games, no DLC, no nothing. No matter how hard you throw your money at your old PlayStation device, you won’t get anything back for it.

That doesn’t mean that your console will become this worthless piece of shit that isn’t even worth connecting to the internet. All previously made purchases can still be re-downloaded. Even claimed PlayStation Plus are still accessible. Vouchers for PlayStation Plus or game codes are also still redeemable. So keep that in mind before you decide to chuck your device out.

Other than that, your PS3, PSP, or Vita will be severed from PlayStation’s storefront, so it’s safe to presume the store dead after the mentioned dates. R.I.P. PlayStation Store.
