The PSP store closes today, but it looks like games will still be available on PS3 and Vita

The PSP store officially closes today, but now we know that games will still be available to buy.


Starting today, PSP owners will no longer be able to access and make purchases on the Playstation Store, not even access in-game stores to buy DLC.


However, Sony has recently updated its information announcing that PSP games, including the exclusives, will be available on other stores.


“You’ll still be able to purchase and play PSP content that is available on the PS3 and PS Vita stores,” reads an updated message on the PlayStation site. “However, you’ll no longer be able to make purchases via the in-game store for PSP content.”


Moreover, players will still be able to access the Download List option on their PSP and use that to download games previously purchased. This means that players can buy new PSP games via the PS3 and PS Vita stores, then use their PSP’s Download List to download them.


The plans of closing old consoles stores were announced in March but following a backlash from players, the company made a partial u-turn in April, stating that it would no longer close the PS3 or Vita stores but was still planning to close the PSP store.


Will you adopt this method to play your PSP games? We’d love to hear from you!
