|Introducing a world of PSPT (PlayStation®Portable) content accessible via PC: downloadable games, playable demos, trailers and exclusive non-game content|
|This November sees the launch of PLAYSTATION Store for PC at http://store.playstation.com. It’s the answer to every PSPT (PlayStation®Portable) owner’s dreams: an all new website that, similarly to PLAYSTATION Store on PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3T), brings together in one place all the great PSP content – and, this time, makes it available from your PC. Access to the site is completely free*, with no purchase necessary and no subscription required, leaving you to enjoy PLAYSTATION Store when and how you like.
The site goes live on November 20 – and it launches packed with content. You’ll find exclusive full game downloads including BeatsT and Go! PuzzleT – titles for PSP only available on PLAYSTATION Store for PC. You’ll find downloadable versions of existing PSP games such as B-BoyT and Fired UpT as well as a range of downloadable PS one® classic titles that includes some longstanding favourites – think WipEout® and Crash BandicootT. There are also brand new playable demos like the breathtaking WipEout® Pulse and Syphon FilterT: Logan’s Shadow as well as trailers for forthcoming PSP titles – so you can try your hand at new games as well as watching what’s in store for the future. As if that wasn’t enough you can download cool music content and keep up to date with new and upcoming bands.
Managing your money becomes easy: payment will work in the same way as PLAYSTATION Store on PS3. If you’ve already registered with PLAYSTATION Network via PS3, your login details will remain the same for PLAYSTATION Store on PC – so there’s no need to register again! You can even manage your PLAYSTATION Network account via your PC – topping up the funds in your wallet, editing your personal profile or managing your friends list.
