Finally Sony has launched the Sen Web Store which enables users to access the PS Store on their browser. So far it’s only available in certain European regions.
You have to first select your region and enter the respective store. It has only been tested to work with Europe, but Sony seems to be slowly launching it worldwide. UK region seems to work perfectly as you can see in the screenshot below.
This feature was requested by PSN users for a long time now and finally it is now happening. It’s not clear if you can download games or transfer downloaded games to your PS3 or PS Vita, but that should not be possible yet. What you can do is buy games easily now using credit card or Paypal.
“We are testing a new web store, which we look forward to announcing and launching to the PlayStation/Sony community shortly,” wrote SCEE blog manager Fred Dutton on the PS Blog.
Jemal Alexandar, ex-marketing manager for Square Enix, revealed how important this was for Sony.
Web based store for PSN is pretty huge, though. I remember being in many meetings with publishers who wanted to see it happen. 3 years ago.

The Web Store allows you to buy games and also queue them in the download list. We will keep you updated once we get more information or official press release from Sony.
