PC PlayStation Store Launches!


PSP owners without a PS3 can now access the PlayStation Network through their very own home computer, as Sony has officially launched the PC PlayStation Store! Simply point your browser over to http://store.playstation.com, set up a PSN account and get the PC-to-PSP transfer application, and then lose yourself in the packed lineup of downloadable videos, demos, themes, wallpapers, add-on content, full PSP games and PS one classic games.

“The library of innovative, downloadable games, videos and entertainment content available through the PLAYSTATION Store provides a new way for PSP owners to get content and demonstrates the continued evolution of PLAYSTATION Network,” said Peter Dille, senior vice-president, marketing and PLAYSTATION Network, SCEA. “PLAYSTATION Store for the PC will give the millions of PSP users who do not yet own a PS3 access to PLAYSTATION Network, and enhance the online entertainment experience for users who own both a PSP and PS3 whether they are at home or on the road.”
