Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the opening of the official PlayStation online store, which from now on will deal with the direct sale of consoles, games, accessories and much more. At the moment, the store is only active in the United States of America and has not yet been specified if it will become operational elsewhere.
The store is integrated into the official PlayStation website and can be reached at this address. Through the navigation menu, you can explore different sections, dedicated to devices from the PlayStation family (including consoles and PlayStation VR), games in physical format, accessories, and vouchers for the PlayStation Plus subscription.
At the moment, only 12 games are on sale, but Sony has promised that the selection will be expanded as soon as possible. The titles currently available are Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Blood & Truth, Bloodborne, Days Gone, God of War 3 Remastered, Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition , MLB The Show 19, Quantic Dream Collection, Ratchet & Clank, The Last of Us Remastered and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Players who subscribe to PlayStation Plus can benefit from express shipping on a free day on all items for sale.
To celebrate the store’s launch, Sony has also launched two promotions, which will remain active until October 21, 2019:
- PlayStation 4 + 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus for $339.99, instead of $359.98;
- PlayStation 4 Pro + 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus for $429.99, instead of $459.98.
We reiterate that at the moment the store is operating exclusively in the United States of America, and at the moment there do not seem to plan for its landing in the Old Continent.
