LEIPZIG, GERMANY – AUGUST 18: A visitor plays with a Sony “PSP” (Playstation portable) at the Computer Gaming Convention on August 18, 2005 in Leipzig, Germany. The convention is Germany’s largest fair for interactive entertainment, hardware and educational software.

However, the “commerce functionality” of PSP games, such as in-game purchases, is bidding farewell on July 12, Sony mentioned in a blog post on April 19. 

The tech giant previously revoked its plans to close down the online stores of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. However, the console maker announced that the closure of the PSP store continues to bid goodbye.

When the news broke, everyone thought that Sony will no longer sell PSP games digitally.

Given the assumption that fans will no longer get their hands on the nostalgic PSP titles from Sony’s online store, people thought that they will need to search all over to get a physical copy of the games they desire to play. 

The narrative changed when Kotaku reported that PlayStation UK’s website quietly added an “important notices” page, clarifying that PSP titles will still sell on Vita and PS3 stores.

It is contrary to what most believed when Sony hinted at closing down the PSP stores.

Nevertheless, since then fans ge lolt their old console titles from the PS Vita and PS3 stores. And that would continue to be the case as long as Sony decides to.
