Amazon.com has opened a digital storefront for PlayStation Network content. The online retail giant now sells PSN download codes as well as game discs. This opening marks Sony as the first of the three major game console companies to make its digital content available through Amazon.
Right now, the store only offers a little over 100 downloadable codes for sale. These include games for the PS3, the Vita, and DLC. But with the PlayStation 4 on the horizon and their promise to sell digital versions of every retail game, this store should expand greatly in the coming months.
Sony has been dabbling with opening up PSN for a couple of years. Download codes for digital-only titles like Journey and Limbo are available from GameStop, but they don’t carry any download codes for retail releases. Nintendo has a couple of titles available from GameStop, as well, while Microsoft has not made any of their digital titles available outside the Xbox Live Marketplace. If Sony’s collaboration takes off, will the others follow suit?
The PSN storefront is currently only available for U.S. customers on Amazon.com.
