The PlayStation Store itself isn’t being replaced, but a new version of it for PC and mobile won’t offer content for pre-PS5 consoles.
Aside from a few cross-gen titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sony is very much looking to move on from its past consoles once the PlayStation 5 launches.
As further proof of this, a new report from French Planète Vitae website states that Sony will be launching a new PlayStation Store website later this month for PC and mobile and it won’t offer any content for older consoles.
Specifically, games and other content for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation Portable will no longer be available. The same will also apply to any apps, themes, and avatars for the PlayStation 4, although PlayStation 4 games will remain.
The PlayStation Store on the consoles themselves isn’t being replaced though, so you should still be able to download everything as normal from the console it’s made for.
So, if you fancy buying an old PlayStation 3 game, you can still do it via the actual PlayStation 3. You just won’t be able to do so via your PC or mobile.
What’s more, any of the associated content you’ve purchased can still be downloaded from your download list.
Any content in your wishlist will be removed as well though and it’s believed that this is because Sony’s reworking for the feature for the PlayStation 5.
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to launch November 19 in the UK and November 12 outside of Europe.
Have Fun ^_^
