In a move that surprises almost no one…

Sony has gone back on closing the PlayStation Store for the PS3 and Vita.

On one hand, this surprises me — they went back on this. On the other hand, it doesn’t, because it would have been a poor business move for them to block people out of the PlayStation Store who were still playing those consoles. It was just a matter of seeing how thoroughly Sony wanted to shoot themselves in the foot alienating themselves from their older player base, because both of those consoles are still being played (or else there wouldn’t have been the uprising that there was over them stating that they would close the PlayStation Store for them). They’re still going to close the PlayStation Store to the PSP console, but hey. A lot of people can play PSP games on the Vita, so that isn’t and won’t be a complete loss. I can deal with that.

Clearly, no one comes between a Bub and his game.
