Welcome To The Amazon Playstation Network Store | Kotaku

You read that headline right. Sony is very excited to introduce the Amazon Playstation Network Store, an alternate venue to purchase digital Playstation content for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita. The introduction of a third party digital retail service has the potential to be a game-changer in the world of digital game distribution.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is good news for people who want to make the move to all digital gaming next gen. Amazon and PSN are a perfect match and if you ever have problems, Amazons customer service is excellent so you are covered there.

I wonder what kind of deals Amazon PS store will offer.....Maybe they will be good enough to tempt me to buy some games digital over physical......maybe.

Sci0n1859d ago

was going to say if I see some buy one get one free deals or 10 or 20 dollar off deals im all over it.

ZodTheRipper1859d ago

Digital games only need some kind of discounts to make them more attractive. I don't like paying the same price for a digital download as for a retail disc. Other than that, I'm completely open for a digital future.

ABizzel11859d ago


Agreed. Digital games need to at least be 20% off for me to even consider buying. $48 digital vs. $60 retail for a new game is where I start to weaver. Now add in a free $5 or $10 Amazon credit and I break.

That is what held me back on a lot of digital games. I could get the disc from say amazon for $30 and it would still be $60 on PSN.

Since you said "maybe:"

Maybe, this is the first use of a deal made with Amazon to use their cloud services. Man, that would be something.

Would be cool.

NateCole1859d ago

AWS is far and way the best cloud service i have used. Much better than Azure for sure.

Google App platform is coming up fast though.

This was quite unexpected. I never imagined a company would allow a secondary marketplace open up a digital store on their closed system like this.

This could pave the way for those Steam like sales the PC guys are always talking about, as it opens up competition to digital content.

Mikelarry1859d ago

this is definitely a very good move on sony part. hopefully we consumers can get really good bargains using this

kazuma9991859d ago

Yeah, and If you buy 1 game u get a 5$ psn code? pretty cool 5$ off next game XD unless u wanna save up and get 25$ or even more. But, I got over 100k gamestop points D: I can just get like 200$ off at gamestop xD

phoenix_dusk1859d ago

This is kinda big, I think. Amazon gets the gamers from the likes of gamestop while Sony moves further into the digital space without causing traffic overload thanks to Amazon's server getting some of the traffic. Symbiotic relationship between these two is what I'm seeing.

More importantly it is a glimmer of hope open platforms in the looming digital age. Digital is great, closed platform digital could be... wallet unfriendly.

Sci0n1859d ago

holy moley just read the buy 2 get 1 free deal applies to digital too. Hmmm decisions decisions lol.
