We have amazing news for our Brazilian fans: Today, Brazil becomes the second country in Latin America to enjoy digital content from PlayStation Network with the launch of PlayStation Store on the PS3. Starting today, PS3 users will gain access to the PlayStation Store to purchase and download nearly 200 pieces of digital content, including games, demos and PSone Classics, all without leaving the comfort of the living room couch. Purchases can be made using credit cards and prices are displayed in local currency, Brazilian Real. PlayStation Network pre-paid cards will soon be available at a variety of local retail stores, soon to be announced. Brazilian users will have the option to view the PlayStation Store in English or fully localized Brazilian Portuguese. New content will be added to the PlayStation Store weekly, beginning on August 2, including the addition of more downloadable PSP titles, so check back regularly.
And if that’s not enough, we are also announcing the launch of the PlayStation Brazil Blog, where Brazilian media and fans will find official news, and the PlayStation Brazil Website where all Brazilians will be able to access product information from the official source in real time.
