Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced PS3 and PS Vita users will no longer be able to use a credit card/debit card to make purchases or add funds to their wallet via the PlayStation Store from October 27, 2021.
The official blurb on Sony’s website reads as follows:
From 27th October, 2021, you will no longer be able to use a credit or debit card or a payment method such as PayPal to buy digital content or add funds to your wallet when visiting PlayStation™Store on your PS3™ console or PS Vita system.
To buy digital content for your PS3 console or PS Vita system, you must first add sufficient funds to your wallet on PlayStation Store. You can add funds by redeeming a PlayStation Store gift card, or using a credit or debit card, PayPal, or other available payment method via a desktop computer, mobile device, PS4 console or PS5 console.
The company also added that you will still be able to use PlayStation Store gift cards for PS3 and PS Vita, while product vouchers and subscription vouchers will remain supported.
