Amazon PSN Store

$5 bonus on select titles for the new PS4, PS3, and PS Vita digital store.

Like the PlayStation platforms, but prefer to shop on Amazon? Then be excited, because the entire PSN store is available on Amazon.

From Amazon, "Amazon.com and PlayStation are excited to announce that you can now visit Amazon.com to purchase your favorite PlayStation Network Content like Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and more. Amazon.com and Sony are teaming up to offer over 100 PlayStation 3 games, PlayStation 4 games, and downloadable content for purchase on Amazon.com. In addition to already released titles, you’ll also be able to purchase the newest games and DLC the first day they are available for purchase using your Amazon payment credentials or Amazon Gift Cards. To browse this new selection, visit the PSN Store on Amazon.com."

Being able to shop through Amazon is a convenience that many customers are used to and even prefer, but to celebrate the launch of the Amazon PSN store, Amazon is awarding $5 Amazon credit for purchasing one of a half dozen new titles including 'Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag' (PS3 version, but can be upgraded on PSN to PS4 version for $10), 'Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Season Pass (One pass is good for both the PS3 and PS4 versions), 'Batman: Arkham Origins, 'Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass,' 'Battlefield 4' (PS3 version, but can be upgraded on PSN to PS4 version for $10), ' Battlefield 4 Premium Season Pass (One pass is good for both the PS3 and PS4 versions), 'The Last of Us, 'The Last of Us Season Pass,' 'FIFA 14' (PS3 version, but can be upgraded on PSN to PS4 version for $10),' 'Madden 25' (PS3 version, but can be upgraded on PSN to PS4 version for $10).'

With so much media going the digital route and with the next-gen platforms requiring large game installations, the Amazon PSN store is win-win for all parties, including High-Def Digest.
