I hope you loaded up on all your favorite Flappy Bird clones and weather apps because the PlayStation Mobile marketplace officially died yesterday on the Vita. Actually, it’s more like it’s slowly being strangled to death. July 15th marked the last day for new content releases (of which there were none) and as of September 10th purchase via web browser and re-download of previously purchased content will be disabled.
In honor of the dysfunctional storefront, which I periodically kept an eye on, I recorded one last look at all the game and app categories. Dramatic readings of busted game descriptions ensues. Unfortunately, when I stopped to eat dinner the microphone got muted and so there’s a 30 minute chunk with no audio. I pop back on at the 1:14:00 mark, and yes, I recorded 90 minutes of this derelict marketplace. I really did like it, for good and bad reasons.
