Sony launches PSP Store on PC

Offering games, demos, etc.

Sony Computer Entertainment has launched a new version of the PlayStation 3's online store - a website accessible via PC, specifically for PlayStation Portable owners - GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The store can be found at store.playstation.com and accepts existing PlayStation Network logins. Contents differ between regions, as with the PS3 Store.

The existing PSP download service will be closed at the end of January, and members will be contacted with details of how to use the new site and transfer their already-downloaded content.

The new site, which launches with a series of full and casual games, demos, gameplay videos, movie trailers and themes (see full list below), has the same look and feel as the PS3 version, and content can be downloaded and transferred from the PC to a PSP Memory Stick via a USB connection and Sony's download manager software.

While demos and trailers will be free, the service - available in 25 countries across the world - will also offer full games for sale, such as Bboy, classic PS one titles including Crash Bandicoot and WipEout, and more casual titles at lower price points.

While anybody may browse the site for free, existing PlayStation Network account holders will be able to download content as soon as the service launches, while new users can sign up on the site - and all account management options are available as well.

The service will be updated with new content every week at the same time as the PS3 Store.
