If a week ago the PlayStation Store server was experiencing a significant overload due to the sudden influx, it certainly cannot be said that the situation has improved now .
Especially with regard to the PS3 digital store, users continue to encounter for days the error 80029721 , which appears every time you are about to perform the software download.
The annoying error keeps appearing to both those trying to download a new game, or a previously purchased game.
The Japanese company has not yet shared any statements regarding the causes of the appearance of the errors, so at the moment it is difficult to understand how soon the store will return to work.
The management of the closure was not handled in a particularly brilliant way by Sony, which apparently did not notify the developers in time, some of whom were already working on some projects for older consoles.
If the Japanese giant does not get ready to solve the problems by the set dates, users would lose the opportunity to win many titles which in physical version reach exorbitant figures, but which they are sold at very low prices on the stores that are closing.
For example, as reported by Game Rant , many PS1 exclusives will become much harder to find following the shutdown of the PS3, PSP and PS Vita digital stores .
Precisely for these reasons, the aficionados of old-gen consoles have given way to real protests , creating petitions to keep the catalogs of titles destined for shutdown active.
