I'm pretty sure it won't be discontinued. The PS3 and Vita PSN are one and the same, and I'm positive PS4's will also be intie with them. So basically until Sony discontinues the Playstation system will be the day PSN dies.

The real question would be when servers get shut down for PS3 games

I REALLY hope Sony decides to revamp the UI of the store for the PS4 and it extends itself to PS3 and VITA because right now the store is just a mess

I realize they'll never go back to the previous one but ANYTHING would be better than what we have now

Long enough for you to be concerned about it.

By the way, you are now breathing manually.

safe to say that our digitally purchased goods will be good until PS5 is out?

It will be discontinued YESTERDAY.

Seriously guys, if it ain't broken, don't fix it. PSN is just too huge to get discontinued anytime soon. However, the game servers will.

"PSN" will probably continue for a very long time. Individual components of PSN that the PS3 can access, though, will probably gradually start shutting down over the next few years. Things like messages and friends lists should continue indefinitely as they're part of PSN for any platform (except PSP). The Store should also run for a very long time as well - it'll be profitable to keep it running for years. Game servers will shut down on the same approximate schedule as they generally do anyway.

Yes, I think we all hope that. The speed is stupidly slow, the interface isn't particularly good, and navigating is a chore.

and VITA

There's nothing very wrong with the Vita Store. It's essentially the old PS3 Store, except faster, with more intuitive navigation, and no cart. It could do with being faster still and having a cart, but it's still easily the best PlayStation Store on any PlayStation device.

I would expect them to (there's very little benefit to Sony in turning the ability to redownload purchased games off), but nothing is completely "safe".
