In early April, Sony announced that the PS3 and PS Vita (as well as PSP) games would be disappearing from the PS Store due to a lack of fighters. Today, after deliberation, the Japanese company announces that this will ultimately not be the case. Did the players win?

So this is a nice reversal of the Sony-powered jacket announced tonight by Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. He spoke on the PlayStation blog to share the news no one expected and translated it from our Super Care PS3 and Ps Vita games, unlike the PSP games, are still available:
We recently informed players that the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita is slated to end this summer. After further reflection, it is clear that we made the wrong decision.. So I’m excited to say today that we will keep the PlayStation Store up and running PS3 and PS Vita devices.
The functions for selling PSP securities are scheduled to end on July 2, 2021.
When we initially decided to stop buying games for the PS3 and PS Vita, it was driven by a number of factors, including challenges with commercial support for older devices and our ability to focus our resources more on new devices where the Majority of our players continue to play.
We can now see that many of you are incredibly excited to continue buying classic games for the PS3 and PS Vita. So I’m glad we found a solution to continue these operations.
I’m glad we can keep this part of our history alive for gamers as we continue to develop innovative new game worlds for PS4, PS5 and the next generation of virtual reality..
Thank you for your feedback. We always listen and appreciate the support from our PlayStation community.
All’s well that ends well ? Answer … later.
