    Default Sony Announces Closure of PS Store for PS3, Vita, and PSP...then reverses course!

    https://blog.playstation.com/2021/04...ue-operations/

    The PS3 and Vita stores live to see another day after consumer backlash, but the PSP store still slated to close on July 2nd. I picked up a PSP for kicks on eBay that I am waiting to come in so I can stuff it with some cheap digital games before they close the store on July 2nd. As a newcomer to the system, some games for the system caught my eye as potentially worthwhile purchases before the shop goes down and as UMD purchases later:

    Power Stone Collection
    Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles
    Tekken 2
    Metal Slug XX
    Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX
    Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins
    Castlevania Chronicles (Is this on PSP?)
    Lunar: Silver Star Story
    Crazy Taxi Wars

    UMDs:
    Outrun 2006 Coast 2 Coast
    After Burner Black Falcon
    Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron

    What are your favorite games for the PSP?

    Sony needs to make there minds up but i assume they reverse course for there public image if any thing.Though i was getting ready to buy some more games for the PS3 digitally but since it's been called off,no rush now.

    One of the first things I thought of when they announced the store closure was, "what is going to happen to my vita and ps3 physicals". I'm already having trouble updating games on vita, but that is in a different thread. Then I started considering that maybe I shouldn't buy so many PS4 games for my collection. That then brought me to, should I even get a PS5?

    I get that they can't stay open for an eternity since Sony will eventually be losing money to keep it open (if they aren't already).

    I imagine we'll lose the ability to download updates/patches and our digital purchases eventually (in an official capacity, at least), but even if the closures for PS3 and Vita had gone through, we were still going to be able to download digital games we already bought and updates for our physical games.

    What I'm wondering is if PSP games will still be available for purchase on Vita. I'm thinking about picking up some more digital-only PSP games, especially ones that are exclusive to PSP.
