If you’ve been a hardcore fan of the PSP till now, it’s time to load up your memory sticks with all the digital games you could ever want from the portable device’s PSN store. Sony has officially announced that the store will be closed on March 31, 2016.
“On March 31, 2016, the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Portable (PSP®) system in the SCEA region will be closed. PSP system users will be able to purchase PSP content from the web-based PlayStation Store at store.playstation.com, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their system. Users will continue to have the ability to make in-game purchases from their PSP system.
Select PSP games are also available for purchase on the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Vita system users.”
Well, I guess it’s not all bad though. You’ll still be able to access all of your previously downloaded games. Just be sure to snag all the handheld classics you want (those which are not available on the Vita store) before the deadline.
