Sony Have gone back on their decision to shut down the PlayStation 3 and PSVita Store!

This controversial news was dropped last night via PlayStation's social media accounts. For many, you may be thinking, "so what? Nobody plays these games anymore", but this news is so much more than having old games on consoles that a lot of gamers do not play any more. No, the early adaptations of the Playstation's digital store also serve as an archive of games that only exist in these digital market places. The initial removal of these digital stores meant that a lot of developers games would disappear and be lost to time, rather than being picked up again in the future by nostalgic players, those who (like me) still have a massive backlog of games to play, or even by future developers looking for that unique piece of inspiration.

On the flip side of the coin, many gamers believed that the closing of the store meant Sony would be focusing on backward compatibility to PlayStation 5. Unfortunately, with the store's revival, these rumours have now been quelled. What many hoped to be a phoenix rising from the ashes has led to fans once again waiting in anticipation for any news toward backwards compatibility.
