The PlayStation Store Gets a Significant Overhaul Shortly

The PlayStation Store Gets a Significant Overhaul Shortly

Both the web and mobile versions of the store should complete this process by October 28, after which customers will need to access the PlayStation Store directly through those legacy consoles to make purchases. All details and dates.

"Major Changes for PlayStation Store" is the title of the email that North American users have begun to receive.

As confirmed in an email from Sony, via Twitter user Wario64, the changes have come as part of the revamp the company's storefront is going through ahead of the PS5 launch.


In practice, what does this mean? The content listed above will no longer be available to buy on PS Store when accessed via a desktop or mobile device. Thankfully, these items won't just disappear forever, you'll still be able to purchase games and add-ons for these consoles by logging into the PlayStation Store directly from the console in question.

As development focus shifted to the PlayStation 4, optimising the PlayStation Store experience on previous platforms apparently became less of a priority. 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. Likewise, Sony has presented the new games library, which also simplifies aspects so that we have everything more accessible and clear.

The users will not be able to see the option to but PS3 games along with all the other stuff that we did mention before.
