Sony have been drip-feeding everybody with new information about the PlayStation 5 over the past month, with updates to backwards compatibility, a full console teardown, and finally a look at the new UI. Ahead of the PS5 launch next month, Sony will be putting out a new version of the PlayStation Store from October 21-26 for desktop, and October 28 on Mobile.
The company announced this via PlayStation emails sent to all users as a notice that some changes on how to access content will take place.
The full list of changes are as follows:
- You can no longer purchase the following items on the desktop and mobile store – PS3 games and add-ons, PSP games and add-ons, PS Vita games and add-ons, apps, themes, and avatars.
- Wishlist will be removed.
What does this mean? It simply means that if you want to purchase PS3 / PSP / PS Vita specific items, you’ll need to purchase them directly from your PS3 / PSP / PS Vita system. Similarly, PS4 apps, themes, and avatars can be still be purchased via your PS4 console. All of your previous content will not be taken away, and will remain tied to your accounts.
As mentioned in the UI reveal, the PlayStation Store on the PS5 will be fully integrated into the system, making it faster and easier to access and find your PS5 and backwards compatible PS4 games.
