PS3: Users warn about the impossibility of downloading some game patches on PS3


PS3: The PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita will close in the summer, but purchased games will continue to be downloaded.Just a few days after Sony announced that the PS3 and PS Vita stores will be closing their doors forever starting in the summer, some users have posted on the ResetEra and PSNProfiles forums that certain game updates can no longer be downloaded from the PS Store of PlayStation 3. The Japanese company, for its part, has not officially announced that the patches will disappear from the store.

It is not clear either that this problem is directly linked to the closing of the store, as it may be some kind of error. In addition, the presence or absence of an update depends in some cases on the region or the format of the game (physical or digital). One user explains that this problem is not new: “Three weeks ago I installed Gran Turismo 5 again and manually searched for the patch.” However, the version I already had was listed as the most recent.
