Sony is planning yes refocus the PlayStation Network website on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games after the console launches. Understandable. But pthe art of this change means that you will no longer be able to buy PS3, PS Vita and PSP games or downloadable content from the PSN website on desktop or mobile devices ̵
Also, PSN The wish list is changed and all items in the wish list will be removed. Terrible. These changes will begin come into force on October 21, and will be fully implemented by October 26.
Sony has done clear changes only affect mobile and web stores. You’ll still be able to buy games and download past purchases directly to your older consoles. However, this is the process more complicated than Sony allows.
The PSP does not have a special showcase, so users have to buy the game online, download it to their computer or PS3, and then transfer it to the PSP via USB or SD card. The PSN’s PSN app can be slow and cumbersome, and the Vita doesn’t show complete store lists, even if you look at all the records alphabetically. You will have better luck in finding a specific game by name, but even then, not guaranteed to occur.
Due to these problems, many gamers probably prefer to buy PS3, Vita and PSP games from the web store on a computer or mobile phone, but you will not be able to do so after Sony launches the new PSN website.
This means yyou should take full advantage of the PSN web store to buy or download your PSP, PS3 and PS Vita games while it’s still around. Also, get those long-lasting titles on your wish list before the feature is removed and these games become a boring job to find and buy. You will be grateful that he did.
How to back locally your old PSN games
You should also consider backing up everything from your PSN purchases, just in case something suddenly disappears from your download list. The process is different between each console and can take a long time if you have a large digital library, but it will be worth it.
To be clear, all your old PSN games are downloaded and stored locally before October. 21 e no requirement; your PSP, Vita and PS3 games will continue to appear in your PSN download list as long as they remain available on PSN. However, it will be much easier to copy onto your locally stored content instead of dealing with the shoddy PSN stores (or lack thereof) on old PlayStation consoles. And gCarrying out the process now will save you the headache after Sony inevitably cut back everything PSN support for these older consoles in the future.
