Following the revamped web PlayStation Store launch last year, players still had access to their older games from previous generations. This was done through region-specific URLs that allowed players to access their library of PS3, PSP and PS Vita games. Through the URLs, games from these consoles could still be purchased too. However, the old PlayStation Store website has been taken down entirely and redirects users to the new web PlayStation Store.

Anyone wanting to redownload a PS3, PSP, or PS Vita game must now do so through their respective PSN Store on the platform. This situation looks grim as the rumor about the PS3 and PS Vita store shutdown happening this year seems to have more credience. Players who still want to re-download or purchase games on those platforms should do so while they can.
