The Sony Entertainment Network online store is now open to gamers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.
Purchase Of Sony
The move means gamers can now purchase content on the Web as well on their console. Sony began testing the store in Europe last month, and expanded availability this week, now offering the option to browse with a keyboard and mouse, instead of just a game controller.
The store offers a selection of games, add-ons, movies, TV shows and other PlayStation 3, PSP, and PS Vita content for download or purchase.
To access the new online marketplace, sign into the store with a Sony Entertainment Network or PlayStation Network username and password. All purchases will be added to the “My Downloads” section in the virtual store on the various PlayStation consoles.
Exclusive Look Of Sony
According to Sony, players can look forward to more features coming to the store, including automatic remote downloads, in the future.
“Following the redesign of the PlayStation Store, the new online store offers similar filter and sorting features — making it easier than ever to find what you’re looking for and discover new digital content,” store director Grace Chen wrote in a blog post.
In November, Sony officially launched an update to its PlayStation Store, combining a new design with new organization and search features, including streaming trailers, filter options, improved graphics, and more available game and video information.
Almost a year ago, the game maker rolled its PlayStation Network into the existing Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) in an effort to unify the company’s branding, following a tough 2011 for the PlayStation Network, which went black for several weeks after a massive hack in April.
