No More Playstation Store Support For PSP

If you are one of many people who are still rocking Sony’s handheld, the Playstation Portable (PSP), mad props and respect to you.

However, it’s probably time for an upgrade.


Sony announced yesterday that on March 31st, it will shut down it’s Playstation Store services for the PSP. Here’s the official press release from Sony’s support website.

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, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their PSP 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.

Hopefully all PSP titles will be available for the Vita? Only time will tell.
