Sony Interactive Entertainment will no longer sell PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable games on the new PlayStation Store.
The new PlayStation Store designed for PlayStation 5 will work on browser and mobile devices as confirmed by Sony, but the next-gen console will not be backward compatible with PS3 and PSP games, only PS4 titles and PS5 titles will be sold on the new PlayStation Store.
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment also confirmed that the new PlayStation Store will be integrated into the PlayStation 5’s menu, this should allow the store to run better than the current-gen app on PlayStation 4.
