Recent rumors pointed to a redesign of PlayStation Store. Now, Sony has confirmed that its store will change in anticipation of the arrival of the PlayStation 5 and will no longer feature games from PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PSP.

According to a statement from the company, the change takes effect in the week of October 21-26, with the change also being valid for mobile devices from October 28.

The list of what will no longer be available for purchase is as follows:

  • PlayStation 3 games and expansions
  • PSP (PlayStation Portable) games and expansions
  • PlayStation Vita games and expansions
  • Applications
  • Topics
  • Avatars
  • The wish list will be discontinued and any items you have on it will be removed.

This means that the company’s store on PlayStation 4 and PS5 will now only feature games from these two consoles. But if I still have my PlayStation 3, how do I do it?

“However, it will still be possible to purchase PS3, PSP or PS Vita content directly from the PS Store on these consoles. PlayStation 4 apps, themes and avatars can also be downloaded from the PS Store on the PS4 console, ”explains a statement from Sony.

Remember that only the store will be modified, not impacting the products you already have. Thus, all PlayStation 3, PSP, PS Vita games, themes and avatars will continue to work if they are compatible with PlayStation 4.

Sony has already revealed the PlayStation 5 interface, also showing that, now, the games and apps store will no longer be a separate program, but integrated into the console’s operating system. Thus, such changes were to be expected for the store.

Remember that the PlayStation 5 hits the market in two versions, with or without the Blu-Ray player. In Brazil, the launch takes place on November 19.
