Sony threw its full market weight on the PS5, and its decision to close the P layStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita owners caused a firestorm.
Players complained that they would not be able to use their old consoles, and with a huge fanbase of their old platforms that the Japanese company had overlooked, revisions were made later with these people in mind.
A few days after the prestige of the company was damaged, its president made a statement and announced the annulment of the relevant decision.
Jim Ryan stated in the company’s official blog that “it is clear that the decision we made a few days ago was wrong. Our initial decision came through the numbers and usage statistics that we saw, and our intention was to focus more on the newer devices, which the majority of our customers also use.”
Meanwhile, the two consoles will remain active and will be able to access related materials sold electronically, while it has only been confirmed that the PSP’s decision will not be changed, as the Japanese company’s oldest portable console will stop arriving on the PlayStation Store on July 2.
Interestingly, Sony was not alone in yielding to the voices of the players, and not long ago, Microsoft also acknowledged its mistake and reversed its Xbox Live Gold subscription price increases.
