The seventh generation of console battles was undoubtedly one of the most memorable periods in the history of the game. Many products such as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii appeared during this period. Nintendo prevailed in the war, while Microsoft and Sony spent eight competitive years. At the same time, the legendary handheld console PSP appeared for the first time during this period. Unfortunately, it’s time to say goodbye to the many Sony products we know and love from the seventh generation.
Critical decision from Sony
Sony is preparing to end playstation 3, PSP and PS Vita, according to the claim made by TheGamer. PSP and PS3 will lose digital store support as of July 2nd, while PS Vita will lose digital store support as of August 24th. Thus, players with these consoles will not be able to access or purchase any digital services. Users will only have to take advantage of the physical content they can access. Sony has yet to confirm or deny this. However, considering that the new generation of consoles was recently released, there is a good chance that it is true.
The PlayStation 3, developed by Sony, was released in 2006. Released a year after the Xbox 360, the console got off to a very troubled start. The fact that it was more expensive than its opponent, its rather rough design and difficulty developing games on the console were the main reasons for this challenging start. However, the company was able to correct this situation in a short time. Ps3 Slim came out with a slimmer design and a cheaper price. However, developing games to the console was still quite difficult. Sony solved this problem by paying attention to its own special games. In this way, Sony has both guided game developers and unleashed the power of the console. These special games, which are quite useful, allowed the console to sell 87 million units by the end of its life.
PSP and PS Vita
PlayStation Portable, or PSP for short, came into our lives in 2005. The device, which is a handheld console, had features similar to today’s popular console, the Nintendo Swicth. Psp, which was very successful for its period, has had many sequels. The last model in the series was the PS Vita, released in 2011. Unfortunately, this product was not able to sustain the success of its predecessors. Both inadequate game library and poor technical equipment were the cause of this failure.
