PlayStation Mobile is coming to an end, folks. It was an exciting journey that brought one of gaming’s most iconic and exciting brands to those who prefer to game on their smartphones an tablets. Alongside a handful of PlayStation 1 classics, Sony used PlayStation Mobile as a driving platform for great mobile independent games that embody everything the PlayStation brand stands for.
So here are the quick details:
- Distribution of games and in-app purchases will cease on July 15th, meaning no new purchases can be made after that point.
- Games you’ve already bought can continue to be downloaded and accessed through September 10th.
- Games can be played after September 10th, but only if you activate your device.
So how do you activate your device? Simply open up the PlayStation Mobile app and launch any purchased content between April 10, 2015 and September 10, 2015. The activation / authentication process was always done each time you opened a game and has never been a permanent solution so you’ll want to make sure you get this done.
It’s a sad day, but Sony feels like there isn’t much more reason for them to continue down this road (especially with how nice Android’s library of games has gotten). Get everything taken care of on your end before it’s too late.
