Removing Digital Storefronts as Platforms
As discussed on Discord, there are a number of digital storefronts that don't necessarily define where you can play a game. (Ex. PSN Store is on almost all of their devices, but some only play on select devices. PS3-only, PS3/PS4, PS4/Vita, Vita/PSP, etc.) Removing these platforms will make this more standardized.
(Confirmed under current internal discussion)
SteamOS -> Linux
PlayStation Network -> respective title for PSP, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PS5, etc.
Xbox Live Arcade -> Xbox 360
Virtual Console -> Wii, WiiU
eShop -> respective title for 3DS, Switch
We have added ability to remove platforms, and have proceeded with doing some cleanup. SteamOS is now gone for example.
Going forward we will look at reintroducing such a concept as “stores” tied to platforms instead. This is the first step :)

Instead of removing them, why not add a Digital Storefronts category like Distribution Networks. That way users could look up all games available for these storefronts. I do not have access to Discord, so I do not know if this was part of that discussion.
