PlayStation Store will not allow you to buy PS3, PS Vita and PSP games from the web or your mobile

Also, it appears that Sony is removing the “Wish List” option.

Little by little, Sony is detailing the changes that the PlayStation ecosystem will undergo for the future and we are getting a better idea of ​​what the environment will be like after the release of PS5. This week we learned that PlayStation has changed the trophy tier system and we have also learned more about the backward compatibility of PlayStation 5 with PS4.

We can only buy PS3, PS Vita and PSP games from the consoles themselves now we have learned, after the first report by Planète Vita and an independent confirmation from IGN, that Sony is planning news for PlayStation Store for October. The update will mean that we will not be able to purchase games or DLC for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Portable from the web browser or the mobile.

The update would go into effect on October 19 on the web and on October 28 on mobile. We can only continue to acquire content for those platforms from the systems themselves. This measure may seek to clean the PlayStation Store in a certain way and that users do not get lost in the meantime of the video game for the new generation, since the store would have too much content.

This information, which as we say IGN has verified, has been known thanks to the leak of an email that Sony has sent to PlayStation’s partner developers commenting on the new measures. The funny thing is that the email states that the “Wish List” function will be eliminated, which allowed us to select the games that interest us to have them in the same place or receive notifications by email when these games are on sale. It remains to be seen whether the removal of this useful feature is confirmed.

Something that we still have to see is the user interface of PlayStation 5, which will be released on November 12 in countries such as the United States or Mexico, and on November 19 it will arrive in Spain.
