We’re still investigating this, but if you head on over to this address you can now shop online for everything that’s in the Sony Entertainment Network, and that includes the PSN.
It even features the ability to browse PS3 games (and buy them) with your PSN account.
It’s not working for every SCEE territory, but it’s definitely there for our UK-based readers, amongst others. Try here if you want to chance your luck with your own Store.
It’s really quick, looks lovely and – yes – it’s about time.
Browsing the catalogue pages for games is lovely, it’s got that parallax scrolling that the PS3 Store has, but much smoother and the ability to quickly see related stuff (like DLC) is a nice touch. The one for Tokyo Jungle, for example, is particularly slick.
Purchases appear to simply add to your download queue, they won’t (we think) start your PS3 downloading like the 360 portal does – you’ll need to power on and then check your queue to start things rolling.
We’re assuming the PlayStation Blog will have some kind of update on this in due course, but in the meantime we can confirm that you’re able to sign in browse the games section – pretty cool.
