After a wave of criticism, Sony has not decided to close the PS Store on PS3 and PS Vita. Now it turns out, however, that the company plans to make it harder to buy digital games on both devices.
On the support pages of PlayStation noted the information, which indicates that on October 27, the stores on these consoles will disappear with the possibility of making payments using a credit card or debit card and PayPal.
However, it is worth noting that Sony will not abolish the option to buy games, although it will be much more difficult. Those interested will still buy productions, but only with money previously added to the virtual wallet with a gift card.
Of course, the funds can also be topped up via a credit and debit card or PayPal, but after October 27, we will only use this method on computers and PS4 and PS5 consoles.
This is not Sony’s first PS Store operation on older devices. In March, the company announced the closure of stores for PS3 and PS Vita, which customers and game developers criticized. Ultimately, the company changed its mind and, after a few weeks, withdrew from disabling the service.
