“On March 31, 2016, the PlayStationStore for PlayStationPortable (PSP) system in the SCEA region will be closed,” Sony said in a blog post. “PSP system users will be able to purchase PSP content from the web-based PlayStation Store at store.playstation.com, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their PSP system.”
Users, however, will still be able to make in-game purchases from their PSP system even after March 31, the Japanese company said.
