Sony Computer Entertainment America and Amazon.com announced that digital access codes for more than 200 PlayStation Network games and game-related content for PS3 and PSP are now available in the Amazon.com Video Game Store.
The new collaboration between PlayStation and Amazon.com broadens PlayStation’s reach and gives consumers another option to purchase digital access codes for download via PlayStation Network with popular titles such as Flower, PAIN, PixelJunk Eden, Wipeout Pure and classics like Twisted Metal: Head-On.
“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.”
“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.”
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 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.
