After last week's report from The Gamer about Sony being poised to end support for PS3, PS Vita and PSP's digital storefronts, it appears that the company has pulled down the web-based versions.

As spotted by ResetEra poster Raoh (thanks, Eurogamer), Sony has removed the browser-based version of a storefront that serviced all three platforms.

Sony Pulls Down PS3, PlayStation Vita and PSP Web Stores

It appears that region-specific versions of the web store are now full of dead links, removing the chance for many to secure digital games before they reportedly are removed later this year.

Sony has yet to discuss The Gamer's initial report, but at the time of writing, you can still purchase games and content via the PS3, PlayStation Vita and PSP's native storefronts.

The report had suggested that all three stores would go offline in July.

Last week, we discussed the ramifications of such a decision.

"There are PlayStation Vita games launching this year that will be removed from sale in just a few months time. That's a developer's livelihood being reduced to a short-term sales target," we said.

We'll update this story as it develops.
