A growing thread on ResetEra is corroborating the list, with some users confirming that their owned games are not receiving updates. “Just popped in Lords of Shadow and sure enough, no update. This sucks because I literally just bought the DLC for it last week,” Liam Allen-Miller said.Players are reporting that even manually requesting an update via the game tile on the PlayStation home screen just results in nothing. And across the conversation, there’s a picture being painted of patches downloading in one region but not another.
There’s potential that this could be a bug, rather than directly related to the upcoming closure, and that Sony may be in the process of fixing it so that users can get their games ready to go before the digital store shuts down. After all, players will still be able to redownload their owned games after the store shuts down in July.
Sony confirmed at the end of March that it will close the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 and PSP on July 2, 2021. The PSN Store for the PlayStation Vita will then close later this year on August 27, 2021.
