Sony will be forced to close its PlayStation Store in Korea following the passing of a new Game Industry Promotion Act in the region.
The act states that users under the age of 18 cannot be forced to divulge their name or age in order to register with Sony’s PlayStation Network service.
The act becomes law from July 1, which does not leave Sony enough time to change its registration process.
Once the store is down, Korean users will be unable to purchase, download, or register any Sony game content online.
Sony has announced they will shut down on June 29, but was unable to say when the service would be back online.
