It's just another way to pay for great content commonly and easily found across the Sony Entertainment Network.

As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , Sony has introduced mobile billing for the SEN, which of course includes the PlayStation Store. This means you can purchase content using a mobile phone account in the US, so now you can snag games, expansions, movies and other stuff while on the go.

You can also add funds to your wallet through the PlayStation Store on PS3, or Account Management via the SEN website. While in the Add Funds portion of the menu, you can select "Use Mobile" as the payment option, enter your phone number, and respond with SMS to confirm. The wallet top-up charge will then appear on your next mobile bill, or will be debited against your pre-paid account. Yep, the whole world is goin' mobile.

Just bear in mind that this doesn't mean your mobile phone can access that content. I can almost guarantee that some people will think they can play Killzone: Shadow Fall on their iPhone or something.

What's cool is when you buy games, and content the PS4 will wake up from hibernation and download the content. And when its done, it will go back to sleep. And this is from smartphones as well. I believe you can also do this from a laptop or other devices. Would be pretty weird if not.

That's one way to easily lose track of your expenditures.

Thats pretty convenient but thats about it. Unless it instantly started downloading (by also turning on my console) then I have no reason to use my phone when I can accomplish the same thing when I get home.

It does that, so no need to worry. It will wake up the PS4 and download the content you purchased and be done before you make it home, and. It will go back to sleep. ^_^ Sony also confirmed this.

Sounds nifty for those with a smart phone. I guess one of these days I will have to break down and get one, especially since I'm a professional geek and the only person in the whole company that I work for that doesn't have one. I just don't feel the need for one since I'm basically always on a computer anyway.

so how does this work? does it add onto the bill at the end of the month or does it just take credit out of your pre-paid plan?

debited against your pre paid account… still don't know what that means… is that for those prepaid plans where u add money and use what you want? or just a general plan per month where u have a specific amount to spend?
