  1. 1. Do you think Sony must end PS3 and VITA's features?

    • Yeah, of course! It must move on with PS5.

    • No, PS3 and PSVITA are good consoles and they must prevail.

As you probably have already heard, the PS3/VITA products, as games, DLCs and all the content from these platforms will be removed from PS Store on Web/Mobile on 18th OCt.. So now you will only be able to buy anything from PS3 on PS3 Store and VITA on PSVITA Store. Also, the wishlist will be removed from Website/Mobile, and PS5 will have a new store with another wishlist and probably new features, so if you want to buy anything, take notes from what you want to get, because it seems Sony is not able to integrate it with PS5.

😒

Why make it harder to make money?
Is the implementation that bad?

It should be one big store, just as it is today.

For all we know, the codebase for the PlayStation Store is an absolute mess. I recall when they updated the store before the PlayStation 4 released, it was prettier, but it was super slow on PlayStation 3. I used it recently and it loaded faster and has less latency. If they've rebuilt the Store, I'm happy to try it out, as long as the PS3 will retain its store.

Official source from Sony? I only hear about rumour and reports, but no official words from Sony, as a sort of notice.

This will make going back to clean up DLC trophies in old PS3 games more trouble than it's worth. Accessing the store from my PS3 barely works, and my download list is a total mess of disorganized content spanning over ten years, so it's like finding a needle in a haystack.

 

Sony is hilariously inept when it comes to these things.

I've been trying to find this as well, but all I'm finding links back to that French website that initially reported on it.

 

Thinking about it, if this actually is going to happen on the 19th, just over a week from now, you'd think Sony would have made some kind of public announcement already. They announced the end of PS3 and Vita PS Plus games a whole year in advance after all, you'd think they'd at least give us a 2 weeks heads up or something on a brand new PSN store on browser/mobile that prevents you from buying content for older systems. Then again, they sprung the trophy levelling update on us literally the day they announced it so who knows, maybe Sony likes awful surprises now or something.

 

I don't doubt Sony would do something like this, but I do hope it isn't true. I'm mainly dubious of the fact of the timing and the fact there still really isn't anything concretely official on this yet.

The amount of money Sony makes from the PS3 and VITA stores is probably a tiny percentage of all sales compared to what sells on PS4. I imagine they've run an analysis of what it would cost them to keep selling those games on mobile and web storefronts (maintenance and upkeep, etc.) and determined it's not worth it.

 

I also remember Jim Ryan saying something like they want as many gamers to move on to PS5 as quickly as possible. This may be part of that plan.

 

They've probably concluded that the remaining players who really want to purchase PS3 and VITA games are willing to deal with the system storefronts to purchase those games. And they're probably right.

You are right.
It makes sense.

But just a bit curious how hard/big change it actually is to keep it as is. 🙂

Just imagine if they kept it all-in-one in a revamped website and didn't stop doing legacy systems game sales.

Yeah, I think all of you received the email saying about the end of wishlist and PS3/VITA products on store via mobile/web.

A+ for Sony, best services ever 😪

If they remove my wishlist i'll be pissed, i got 81 games on there. Really hope it carries over to the new store as i don't feel like writing them all down on Notepad.

 

There is also no reason not to show PS3/Vita games in the web store. The web store should show all content in the store since it's not tied to a specific console. Would be incredibly stupid to only show PS4/5 content in the browser store.

 

Change is good, but not always, if it ain't broke don't fix it imho.

Won't carry over. The new library site is already up and it doesn't seem to remember anything from your wishlist, regardless of system. I'd suggest taking the time to make a copy.

Yeah this change sucks. Certain games don't show up on the store on the Vita which means you won't even be able to get them anymore. When I get the PS3 store to load it doesn't let me buy anything. Every game I click on loads but the purchase button is never on the listing. This is BS.

At the moment those changes where not announced for Germany. Maybe Sony will announce this in Germany at a later time per E-Mail.
