Recently Sony announced that it would be closing its online PlayStation 3 & PlayStation Vita stores by the end of the summer. Thankfully, it seems that the game company has flipped a complete 180 on this decision; as they’ve officially announced that the PlayStation 3 & Vita stores will no longer be closing.
Following a massive amount of negative feedback from the PlayStation community; the President & CEO of Sony, Jim Ryan, has released an official statement that they are no longer closing the stores! This will allow players to purchase PlayStation 3 & Vita games for the foreseeable future.
The store was planned to close due to commerce support challenges; allowing for a refocus of resources on current generation stores. Now that they realize how important classic games are to the community; and have found a solution to keep this piece of history alive for gamers to enjoy.
“Thank you for sharing your feedback with us – we’re always listening and appreciate the support from our PlayStation community.” – Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment
