Now You Can Peruse the PS Store with Your Web Browser

Posted by Sammy Barker

Surprise

Sony’s launched a web-based version of the PlayStation Store which allows you to purchase games, movies, and TV content without ever needing to boot up your PS3. The wordy Sony Entertainment Network Store has been rumoured for years, but despite launching in Europe this morning, the company’s still yet to actually announce it.

The digital plaza allows you to login with your PSN account information and make proper purchases using your virtual wallet. Any transactions that you do make are added to your Download List, which will be waiting for you next time you turn on your console. It would have been nice if the platform holder had figured out a way to make the new content download automatically, but we suppose that this is a nifty feature if you’re finding the new PlayStation Store a nightmare to navigate.

You can peruse the web-based storefront through here. While you’re having a gander, allow us to remind you that Tokyo Jungle is still available for just £4.67 if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber. That’s an absolute bargain as far as we're concerned.

@belmont Yeah, from what I can understand, this is only available in some European regions at the moment. Of course, Sony refusing to comment on it is making it difficult to find out exactly who can use this.

This store came a little early which is why they have yet to annonce something.

I've seen Sony screw up enough launches lately that I'm glad to see them do something without announcing it first. Less load on the servers.

Relatedly I've been looking into buying an Xbox and found their website which looks like you can do this. My wife still says no though.

When will they announce this? And how come this is only for Europe? We Americans have feelings too, Sony.
