Due to a wide range of issues with PlayStation Vita’s PlayStation Network, players have been unable to download or transfer games to their handhelds for almost 24 hours. Kotaku I contacted Sony earlier that day for more information, but didn’t get a response before it was released.

The first signs of the problem were posted to r / Vita subreddit Late last night, user mynameispotato92 created a thread about an issue where he was downloading a previously purchased game from the system’s PlayStation Store app.

“I went to download [Ys Origin] On the Vita, it didn’t allow me, gives me the error code NP-2245-3 for not being able to connect [PlayStation Network] Within the time limit “ Read the post..

Since then, with that post Another thing like that It’s flooded with comments from other Vita owners who can’t download digital games. A Similar thread Posted this morning on the game forum ResetEra, noting that the game transfer from PlayStation 3 to Vita also failed.Tested by Kotaku I exhibited the same problem several times during the day.

In October, Sony sent a wave of concern through the Vita community When all Vita, PS3, and PSP contents are deleted Eliminate the convenient way to purchase and manage new games for these older systems from the mobile and web versions of the PlayStation Store. Many have interpreted this as a warning sign that the company’s support for these platforms may end.

And now that Vita downloads have been stopped, concerns about digital ownership have skyrocketed, making it difficult for Vita owners to purchase or download purchased games.

It’s unclear what this means. The odds are decent, it’s just a temporary PlayStation Network bug. RPG site Staff writer James Garizio recently unveiled on Twitter PSP still has access to the download list; Kotaku This could not be verified individually.In addition, he Written correctly Nifty, but transcendental Vita is still watching the game release trickle in Japan. So that’s a good sign.

Unfortunately, Vita owners seem to stay in the dark until Sony says something about this issue. We hope that is resolved and Vita’s store app and PS3 transfer feature will continue to work well in the future.
