An email sent to PlayStation Network users officially confirms that Sony will present a new PlayStation Store via the web and on mobile devices next week. As previously revealed, it will no longer be possible to purchase PS3, PS Vita and PSP games; PS4 apps, themes and avatars, as well as your wishlist will be deleted.
The email, so far, has only been sent to US accounts, but Brazilian users should receive notification soon (update: Brazilian users have already received the notification as well). Check out the text below:

What will change?
The following changes will take effect on the website on October 21 – 26 and on mobile devices on October 28:
• You will no longer be able to purchase:

o PlayStation Vita games and expansions
• The wish list will be discontinued and any items you have on it will be removed.

You will no longer be able to purchase the content listed above when accessing the PS Store from your computer or mobile device. However, it will still be possible to purchase PS3, PSP or PS Vita content directly from the PS Store on those consoles. PlayStation 4 apps, themes and avatars can also be downloaded from the PS Store on the PS4 console.
