As we lead up to the launch of the PS5, Sony is revamping its PlayStation Store to prepare for a new experience. The online store has not had a revamp since the PS4 launched back in 2013. According to a leaked report, Sony is set to roll out the new store experience on 19 October 2020. In addition, the company is removing PS3, PS Vita and PSP games from the new web store. However, the report claims that gamers can still purchase content and access the store on those specific platforms.
According to the leaked announcement, the affected platforms include;
- PlayStation 3 games and add-ons
- PSP (PlayStation Portable) games and add-ons
- PlayStation Vita games and add-ons
So users won’t be able to purchase avatars, apps and themes on the new store either. If you want to access the above content, you are forced to use the store on your console. In addition, Sony is scrapping the Wishlist feature and removing all items you may have on this list. According to previous reports, the PlayStation 5 is said to include the wishlist system on the console itself. This is something the PS4 console does not have. We don’t know anything about the PlayStation App and how it will be affected by this.
Sony has yet to announce the new store but a revamp makes sense. 19 October marks less than a month to the launch of the PlayStation 5 and right now, users cannot pre-order any digital PS5 exclusive games on the current web store. The new version will no doubt be tailored to PS4 and PS5 and include more information about the exclusive games and whether or not they support free upgrades and cross-save.
Stay tuned for more news on the new PlayStation Store in the coming weeks.
