My quick and dirty observations about the problems Sony needs to address before shutting down the PlayStation store on the PS3, PSP and PSvita. There's more issues than people are noticing right now and I figure I should bring them up for Sony to answer.

I know the older but still popular PS consoles of like a Decade and a half ago (minus the PS4) are still being returned to this Day and such, but really they had to cut off the online store connected buys from the PS3, PSP, and PS vita platforms too suddenly now?....

Alot of people are forgetting D.R.M . Due to the series of updates we've been forced to do over the years. Our consoles are tethered to the internet for most games.😠

I use my PS3 to download a lot of stuff - PSP, PS Vita get used a lot with me. Long before any of this news, this is so upsetting, doesn't even seem legal.

In my region (Germany) Sony says that everyone is still able to download already purchased games, that means that the server for date and time settings should (theoretically) be accessable in future. :)

Very informative video! I'm so disappointed about the news considering I bought games like Silent Hill and Crash Bandicoot for ps1 and it would be a shame to not be able to play them anymore..Also I'm wondering, will physical games work, or does this issue only affect the digital ones? 😕

So does this mean that the digital games I bought and downloaded on my harddrive won't be playable after this happens, I am confused here, but screw buying a PS5 now, they just lost me and I have been a supporter of Sony for years

Hi. I'm a bit late for this but thanks for the information. I'm a huge Ps3 and vita fan and I have lots of digital games gownloaded. I know there are people that say no one cares about older games, just move on, etc, but along with ps2 it's my favourite generation and I would like to keep playing my games. After all, I have paid for everything legally so those games and consoles should always be usable. I can get my head around closing the store and not having access to games that have been purchased (I'm not saying I agree with it) but preventing me from playing games I have bought is a very dirty action to take. Buying a game should be like buying a book, DVD, and a CD, money has been paid and we should be able to enjoy that product for as long as we want. If Sony does brick Ps3 and vita I won't touch a Sony product ever again and I'll take any avenue available to play the games they have taken from me. Hopefully the worst case scenario is that we get keep our digital purchases with Sony telling us to download our games before the store closes. Does anyone know the situation with the Nintendo Wii? Was it bricked after the store closure or are the games the were downloaded still able to be played?

I get the reason behind the ps3 store closing, seriously so laggy but what i don't get is why can't they just move the games from the ps3 to ps4 and make players download those games from there

Got me thinking what if Sony is planning to merge all past console games into the ps store into one where you could purchase whatever 🤔

The PS3 and Vita shops closing are very troubling. At least with the PS1, PS2 and PSP games, let's face it we can emulate those if need be. PS3 emulation only works on certain games and most people don't have good enough computers to do it. The Vita is definitely in the worst scenario since many of its games are platform exclusives and reliable emulators for it are nowhere in sight. If Sony actually did their own backwards compatibility I'd buy more of their older digital titles, but instead most of them will become abandonware with no (legal) way of playing them.

It’s such a betrayal to us hard working folks that invest so much money in these systems and digital content and digital games! They better have a way for us to be able to have access to our digital games! It’s still our digital property! It’s just awful if we are not able to! Wasted money! 🤨

I love my PS games but if this situation is not resolved then “smucked it” I am done with PlayStation. I will suck it up take it as a loss go over to Mobile and PC. I deal with the upgrade pc issues, no more paying for PS + and PS Now just to get a boot 🥾 in my back bc of this cmos battery 🔋 issue I hope my X-box gamers don’t have this same situation.

I saw this one coming years ago that's why I've never bought anything digital. Remember when PlayStation 3 came out, they had Linux on it they went and firmware it so you couldn't use it. That's when I starter disliking Sony.

Guys if you want to know how to redownload your games go into account management in the PS online section on your PlayStation 3 then go into transaction history and you'll see a menu that says download list that's where you can access all of your downloads and purchases

but you forget download on pc for psvita are long time ago not supported.this is precedense situations.i think wee users should act.psvita has only 10 years ps3 have 15 years.so for vita system at least it shouldnt happen.sony have to be more carrefull that could end really bad for them in future.Microsoft is more users friendly and backward compatibility is huge factor.

Very good summary. I will add one more question about PS3: Apart from paid games, what about purchased demos and trials? If it will be possible to still download the games we paid for, I hope we will also be able to download the purchased demos and trials as well. I'm satisfied to play also that version of games, so I have my fingers crossed.

Hey, noob here... Does this mean that I wont be able to download stuff that I had already purchased from the PS3 store? Will the games from my library completely vanish? Or does it just mean no possibility to purchase new content?

Weird paradox there, Crossplay downloads will still exist. You can Redownload what you previously purchased but won't be able to purchase more. When i went to get the remaining digital games i wanted from the ps3 i understand why the ps3 store needed to close cause it was very laggy

I'm confident that someone will create a Vita emulator. I mean it's plausable. Like if you're using a tablet, make the top part the screen the actual game and the bottom part, the rear touch pad. Or maybe someone will make a gaming phone with a rear touch pad that can handle Vita emulation. The future is full of endless possibilities, my friends
