SCEE today announced that PSN Cards and a Video Store are definitely coming to Europe. Angela Madronero, European PlayStation Store Manager, has stated that more information on PSN Cards will be revealed ‘in the not too distant future’. Also, Sony “will be making an official announcement regarding [the] forthcoming Video Store, next week, at GamesCom.” Which is great news for games in Europe and PAL Territories.
In addition to accepting credit cards, the US allows you to use pre-paid cards within the PlayStation-Store. Will we be getting a pre-paid cards system and, if so, when?
At Games Convention in August last year, we announced that we had a long-term plan to launch a video on demand service for some countries in the SCEE region. This is still our plan, and as soon as we have all the details locked down, one of my colleagues who is working on the programme will give you an update on when and what will be available.
This is something we’re definitely looking into for European Store users. I can’t give you any further information at the moment but I can assure everyone that we will be bringing you more news in the not too distant future, so please hang in there!
When will Europe get a video and music download service?
We recently launched VidZone – a great EU first, free of charge music video streaming service. We have received very positive feedback and are thrilled with its successful launch, with over 1 million downloads in less than 8 weeks.
