“PlayStation 3 and PS Vita updates disable account creation. Sony has released firmware updates for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita which seem to disable account creation. As reported by VGC, two new updates for both the PS3 and PS Vita were released today (May 10) which remove a number of account management settings from the consoles, including account creation. Now, users wishing to create a new account or recover a password will need to use a third-party device, such as a smartphone or computer.
Last year, Sony announced its plans to slowly close services for older PlayStation systems and went on to close both digital stores for the PS3 and PSVita. However, the plan didn’t last long following the community outrage, and the decision was later reversed. “Upon further reflection, however, it’s clear that we made the wrong decision here. So today I’m happy to say that we will be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices,” Jim Ryan, president & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said at the time.”

“First PS1/PSP Games Included In New PS Plus Reportedly Leaked. The first PlayStation games that are coming to PlayStation Plus Premium may have leaked online and they include Tekken 2 and Ridge Racers 2. Sony has revealed that 340 games will be made available to PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers at launch, but it’s unknown which games will be added. The first-party Sony games seem to be the most likely to arrive on day one, but there are questions regarding the third-party games. The PlayStation line of consoles has been supported by some incredible third-party studios over the years and, for many users, they would need to be brought on board to make the service worthwhile. It seems likely that the Syphon Filter games are coming to PlayStation Plus, thanks to an age rating in Korea, but this has yet to be confirmed by Sony. It seems that Sony has started to add PS1 and PSP games to its backend service, in anticipation of the new PlayStation Plus launch in June. According to Redditor the_andshrew, Sony has added two PS1 games to PSN’s backend, namely Tekken 2 and Mr. Driller, and one PSP game, with Ridge Racers 2. These include the internal ID numbers for the games and the links to their images on the official PlayStation website.

“PlayStation Plus Subscribers Are Down From Last Year. According to Sony’s most recent financial report, the PlayStation Plus subscriber numbers are down year-on-year. But only slightly. As reported by Push Square, the year-on-year PlayStation Plus subscription number is down ever so slightly from 47.6 million in the fiscal year 2020 to 47.4 million in the fiscal year 2021. While in the grand scheme of things, 200,000 is only a small number. However, I’m sure it might not give Sony as much confidence as it would have liked. Especially with the revised PlayStation Plus subscription service kicking off in June. That being said, during the same fiscal period of Q3 2021, PS Plus subscriptions did peak at around 48 million, before suffering a slight drop once more. Furthermore, PlayStation Network users also saw a drop during the same period by around 5 million. Ever since plans were announced for the revised PS Plus subscription service which includes three tiers, it’s fair to say that the reception has been somewhat mixed.”
