PS3 and PS Vita receive update … that further limits the user experience
To the surprise of gamers, Sony released update 4.89 for PlayStation 3 and 3.74 for PlayStation Vita. These updates offer stability improvements for the systems of each console, however, this time they come with important changes for the management of user accounts. According to official information, once installed, it will no longer be possible to create user accounts from the system of each console, in addition to the fact that some management options of the accounts that are registered in each one have been eliminated.

Sony continues to shorten the life of its last generation consoles
In the same way, this PS3 and PS Vita update will make the 2-step authentication system mandatory to log in, a process that you can carry out at this link if you have not yet done so to protect your user accounts on PlayStation Network.
This is considered an important security measure, probably related to the years that both systems have been on the market and the vulnerabilities to which they could be exposed in such a situation.
Likewise, Sony reported that accounts created from a PS4, PS5 or PC can be registered on PS3 and PS Vita and used without any problem as the system will recognize them immediately.
Recently, the PS Vita gave the note for a bug that prevented users from accessing the PS Store and made some think that the end is near. The above has been considered by the community before the start of operations of the new version of PlayStation Plus, which from one of its subscription levels will include classics from PS One, PS2 and PS3.
