Three legendary game consoles of an era will soon be permanently removed from PlayStation Store stores. Sony announced the closing dates for PS3, PSP and PS Vita on its official support page.
PlayStation 3 and PSP consoles will lose access to the online store on July 2, Sony said. PS Vita will end its support on 27 August. Until then, players will still be able to purchase games through the PS Store. But by the end of the summer, thousands of games will say goodbye to PlayStation.
2,200 games will bid farewell to the world of PlayStation
According to reports by VGC, Sony will be unplugging nearly 2,200 digital games with three game consoles that it will bid farewell this summer. While 630 of them are PS Vita games; 336 PS2 Classic and 730 PlayStation 3 games will be shelved. A small number of PSP productions will bid farewell to the players.
Most of the games that will part ways with the PlayStation ecosystem will also be available on other platforms. However, thanks to Microsoft’s backward compatibility, it will become Xbox exclusive. Among these productions are popular productions such as Beyond Good & Evil HD, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
According to reports, the 120 games on the list will disappear completely. It will not be available on any other platform. The highlights of these productions are:
– Infamous: Festival of Blood
– Echochrome II
– Lumines Supernova
– The Last Guy
– Trash Panic
– PixelJunk Racers
– Tokyo Jungle
– MotorStorm RC
Sony’s abandonment of backward compatibility annoys some users. However, many games will continue to live on memory cards for a while. In the future, most legal copies will inevitably be deleted. On the other hand, publishers can also move their very popular projects to future consoles. Of course time will tell.
