Sony has told developers that it is revamping the PlayStation digital storefront later in October 2020. The revamp will remove users’ options to purchase games and downloadable content released initially on the PS3, PSP, and Vita from a mobile device or PC, according to Planète Vita.
This means older PlayStation games will not be available for purchase over the web or on mobile for much longer. From 19th October 2020, the PlayStation web store will remove the option. The mobile app’s update will also be available from 28th October 2020.
Users can still make new purchases for PlayStation legacy titles, but they will have to first purchase them directly from PS3, PSP, Vita, or PS4 gaming consoles.

However, this only applies to new purchases, any previous purchases of any legacy PlayStation titles and downloadable content will still remain accessible through your PlayStation account.
Sony will also reportedly remove users’ ability to download apps, themes, and avatars for PS4 on both web and mobile. They can still be downloaded on the console.
The company is also discontinuing the PlayStation Store’s wish list feature, this means that any wish list items you have on will be removed from your account.
