Sony has announced that it will close PlayStation Store for PS3, PS Vita and PSP. The decision met with immediate opposition, and Sony withdrew the move. However, the company would still close the PSP store on July 2. There may be a solution that allows users to continue purchasing these titles after that date.
VGC saw a user named SilicaAndPina create a new Firefox plugin called Valkyrie PS store which gives its users access to the old PlayStation store. The plugin uses websites backed up to archive.org. The store works the same as before and may even continue to push downloads to your consoles. The following video will give you instructions on how to implement the plugin.
For those who might be unfamiliar, Sony updated its store in October to prepare for the launch of the PlayStation 5.
This update removed games for PS3, PSP and Vita from the store. So if you want to go back and download these titles, this may be your best bet. If you still have a console, you can go to the store in the system.
This is incredibly great, but it probably won’t store any titles to download only on the PSP when its servers get in the ax. When turned off, about 35 digital titles on the PSP may be lost in the void.
