At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.

The downloadable content, including full PSN games and add-ons, as well as PlayStation Plus subscriptions, are currently available in select GameStop stores and will continue to be added to the PlayStation DLC section in more than 4,400 retail stores and the official GameStop website throughout the rest of the month.  With more than 1.25 billion pieces of content downloaded worldwide on PlayStation Network and more than 60 million registered PSN users, this newest initiative offers the robust PlayStation community the option of purchasing digital content through GameStop, the world’s largest video game and entertainment software retailer.

“We are always looking for new ways PlayStation Network users can expand, extend and enhance their overall entertainment experience,” said Tim Bender, senior vice president of sales, Sony Computer Entertainment America. “Being able to purchase downloadable digital content at retail provides yet another convenient purchasing option for gamers.” 

GameStop’s senior vice president of merchandising Bob McKenzie added, “We worked hard to bring this technology to market and are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Sony Computer Entertainment. DLC content, which typically costs between $10 and $15, makes a terrific holiday gift for gamers who enjoy playing titles with available add-on content.”

The content, also available for download using a PlayStation Network (PSN) account on PlayStation systems, can now be purchased at GameStop retail locations and will soon be available on the official GameStop website.
