Sony’s mini app store, PlayStation Mobile, is to close this July and has already ceased support on Android devices.
There will be no new content after July 15th and from September 10th PlayStation Mobile will close completely, which means you will not be able to re-download any games you have purchased in the past.
Despite proving popular with developers – there were ten games released on PSM last week – it seems Vita owners have not embraced the platform, possibly due to the pricing of games which are regularly higher than those on iOS.
It’s another loss for the PS Vita but as very few used it, perhaps not a great one. I suspect the service is the victim of the re-invention of Sony in to a leaner, more profitable company, will you miss PlayStation Mobile?
