More versions coming "in due course"
Sony has confirmed that some PS3 owners will have to wait until they can visit the PlayStation Store - adding that some territories won't get access at all.
PlayStation Store is billed as "an integrated and streamlined online storefront" which "allows all PS3 users to browse and download available entertainment content".
Along with downloading high-definition game videos and playable demos for titles such as Motorstorm, users can purchase full games such as Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection.
But since PS3 went on sale in Europe last Friday, some PlayStation.com forum users have complained that they can't access PS Store. The service is reportedly unavailable in territories including Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Slovenia.
