PSN Web Store Now Live in North America

Posted on January 25, 2013 AT 01:24pm

If navigating the PlayStation Store through PS3 ain’t your thang, perhaps you’ll find making PSN purchases more manageable by using the web store.

The Sony Entertainment Network web store is now available for use in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. As the name implies, the web store allows you to make PSN purchases via web, navigating with the ol’ mouse and keyboard instead of a DualShock 3.

Sony intends to iterate upon the web store’s design and functionality. From the press release:

The launch of the online store follows the recent release of the new PS Store for the PS3 system and is part of an on-going initiative of redesigning the various device user experiences. Sony Entertainment Network will continue to update the PlayStation Store and online store with new features that improve usability and convenience for finding, purchasing and accessing content. For example, users of the new online store can look forward to the future addition of advanced recommendation functionality and automatic remote download of purchased content, as well as mobile phone and tablet browsing.
