PSP PlayStation Portable Store

Remember earlier in the year when Sony planned to close down the PlayStation Stores on PS3, PS Vita, and PSP? Of course, the corporation walked this decision back after no small amount of criticism, although the PSP's digital storefront would still be switching off come 2nd July. Still, it's a better result than what was initially on the cards. The thing is, it seems fans of Sony's original portable might not have to mourn the loss of PSP games at all.

As reported by VGC, Sony has updated the messaging on its official site, which now states that you can still access PSP software via PS3 and PS Vita. "You’ll still be able to purchase and play PSP content that is available on the PS3 and PS Vita stores," the site says.

So, while you won't be able to access the PS Store on your PSP to buy new games, you can buy them via other PlayStation systems, if you have them. It looks like the games themselves aren't going anywhere, then — and remember, you can still re-download any previous PSP purchases, too.

That softens the blow a bit, but what are your thoughts on the matter? Does PSP's Store closure affect you? Will you be using PS3 and Vita to access PSP titles going forward? Discuss in the comments section below.
