Posted by Michael Lippert on September 20, 2018 03:27:19In a blog post on the PlayStation blog, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4, PlayStation TV and the PlayStation Mobile will be removed from retail stores and online in late 2018, and that all PlayStation 4 games will be unavailable.
The PlayStation Network is set to remain offline for the next six months.
“We will be making the decision about how to best support the PlayStation community in the coming months,” the company wrote.
“This includes making it possible to transfer your PlayStation Network password to another account, which may require an additional charge.
For this reason, we are removing the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Mobile from retail, online and in the future.”
Our aim is to make sure that the community plays and learns with as much integrity as possible.
“In its post, Sony said it had already begun to work with developers and retailers to “ensure the PS4 and PS4 Pro support the PSN and PSN+ platform.
“The announcement came just days after the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, which will be available to download for $499 and $499 respectively.”
The PS4 is a very powerful device, and we want to make it accessible to everyone, including people who aren’t gamers,” Sony said in its blog post.”
With the PS3, we were able to reach more people through the PS Plus program, but we have to take a different approach now.
“That’s why we’re bringing the PlayStation Pro to stores in 2018, which allows anyone to easily connect to the cloud and access their favorite games from their living room.”
Sony has been looking to bring more people into the PlayStation ecosystem and has been working on plans for the PlayStation Experience, an event that will take place in June in Los Angeles.
“PlayStation Experience will allow attendees to experience the games, services and content of the PlayStation brand at the same time they experience it at their home or workplace,” the PlayStation Blog said.
“For example, we’ll be launching our own PlayStation Experience booth in the U.S. in 2019.
And we’ll also be expanding our PlayStation Experience event at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in 2019.”
