    Sony will no longer be killing off support for the PlayStation Store on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Last month saw the official announcement that both systems would no longer be able to purchase new digital games or access the PlayStation Store, but that decision has been walked back. This is because Sony saw the passionate outcry of fans upset about the closure, and so the PS3 and Vita will be able to work as they have been. However, the PSP's access will still be going offline as previously planned, on July 2nd.

    I am pretty sure the whole “It’s always morally ok to pirate from Sony” movement got their attention.

    I mean if the stores continued to sell they would have not decided to close them down in the first place..... I dont think many people are using the stores anymore

    Suppose this has something to do with consoles having those cmos batteries installed?.. If the servers discontinued then those people who replace the batterys will end up with a building block :rofl2:

    The whole thing seems like misdirection to avoid the real issue that is the CBOMB anyway why would anyone want to buy stuff on those consoles knowing that they are about to die, and are no longer being sold or serviced by the manufacture.

    I like how they put this announcement on the blog, but not the one where they cancelled it in the first place.

    Why do I have a feeling that their reason of stepping back because of people's outcry is more of a excuse?

    So they "were able to find a solution", eh?

    Don't tell me they lost the solution temporarily?
    Good for both console users. I hope they keep the storefronts active for quite a few more years.

    It would make ppl not want to buy digital consoles in the long run b/c they would get screwed over from not being able to download new games if the store was cut off from them. Im glad someone with a brain actually thought about this problem b/c they clearly didn't think about the scalpers bot purchase every ps5 in existence.
