The PSP Digital Store is officially closed today. However, users can still purchase new games through the PS3 or Vita Store - as long as they have one of these operating systems, as the web and mobile stores are not closed. It's a bit of a mistake that Sony has corrected several times, which indicates that the company hasn't fully thought about this issue.
In March, Sony launched its online stores, PS3, PSP and PS Vita, offline, sparking rumors of their shutdown. He later confirmed that he had closed stores this summer. After a backlash, Sony reversed its decision, saying that closing PS3 and Vita stores was a "wrong decision," but that PSP Business Performance should still retire a month to be able to purchase PSP digital games. However, an update for Sony's PlayStation support screens indicates that it will be closed a few days before July 6 (today). Users will no longer be able to search for games or in-game DLC purchases. However, users can still access their games through the PSP download menu.

In addition, users can also purchase new PSP games across the PS3 and PS Vita markets.

Of course, this is not entirely simple because the online versions of the PS3 and Vita stores are no longer live. So to buy a PSP game, users have to log in from PS3 or Vita and buy it from the store, then go to the PSP and download it from the download list. For those without a PS3 or Vita, buying new games doesn't seem like an option.
