There's a ton of content available on the PlayStation Network, so isn't it nice that we have multiple ways to access it?
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and video game retailer GameStop have teamed up "to sell select downloadable content (DLC) offerings for the PlayStation 3 system in-store and online." You can nab it with a simple Network account but if you'd rather, you can visit GameStop.com or one of their 4,400 retail stores around the world. Everything from full PSN games to add-on content, along with PlayStation Plus subscriptions can be purchased at select GameStop locations. Over 1.25 billion pieces of content have been downloaded worldwide and there are currently 60 million registered PSN users, so you probably want to be a member of the ongoing party. Said Tim Bender, senior vice president of sales for Sony Computer Entertainment America:
"We are always looking for new ways PlayStation Network users can expand, extend and enhance their overall entertainment experience. Being able to purchase downloadable digital content at retail provides yet another convenient purchasing option for gamers."
Well, there's no excuse now for getting extra content for your favorite games, or opting to check out some of the PSN-exclusive productions like Qore, Pulse and The Tester.
