Digital access codes for more than 200 PSN games for PS3 and PSP are now available in the Amazon Video Game Store.
Sony and Amazon today announced that digital access codes for more than 200 PlayStation Network games and game-related content for PlayStation 3 and PSP are now available in the Amazon.com Video Game Store.
Digital access to PlayStation Network games works on a code-redemption system. Amazon.com customers who wish to purchase a PlayStation Network game or game-related content are able to purchase a digital access code for downloading content on PS3 or PSP systems with their US PlayStation Network accounts. Amazon.com customers will receive the code immediately after purchase or they can choose to email the code to themselves or send the code as a gift. Additionally, this code will reside in the customer's Your Games & Software Library so they can retrieve it at any time.
“With more than 600 million pieces of content downloaded to date, consumers are turning to PlayStation Network more than ever for digitally distributed entertainment content,” said Peter Dille, senior vice president of Marketing and PlayStation Network. “We are excited to team with Amazon.com to expand our reach with Amazon’s market leading ability to target current and future PlayStation consumers.”
“We are excited to expand our current library of video game platform downloads,” said Paul Ryder, vice president of consumer electronics for Amazon.com. “PlayStation Network games are an important addition and we plan to continue making it easier for customers to instantly enjoy new content as well as their favorite games from the comfort of their living rooms.”
