Those who access PlayStation Store via web or mobile devices will not be able to purchase PS3, PS Vita and PSP games from the store anytime soon.

The company sent out an email to PlayStation users yesterday with details about these (previously rumored) PlayStation Store changes and when they will take effect.

As the development focus shifted to PlayStation 4, optimizing the PlayStation Store experience on older platforms has seemingly become a lower priority.

Having leaked last week, Sony have now confirmed that a new version of the PlayStation Store is set to launch for web browser and mobile in the latter half of October.

Moreover, the changes will be implemented on October 19th online, while smartphones will follow on October 28th. With the transition to new interfaces, it will not be possible to purchase PS3, PS Vita and PSP games or add-ons on the computer or phone.

To top it off, Sony has chosen to remove wishlists. Accessing PSN through the devices themselves will still allow the purchase of these games.

I recently had a real hard time trying to buy Demon's Souls due to the egregious behavior of the PlayStation 3 store app.

In the new period, those who access PlayStation Store via web or mobile will not be able to purchase applications, themes and avatars even for PS4. You'll also still be able to access all of the previous content you own on their respective consoles.
