Sony launched a new online store in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Brazil, giving PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network users a one-stop shop to discover and purchase games, movies and TV shows from the web.

The new online store features rich product pages that offer an easy way to browse the store’s catalog of millions of game-related content, including downloadable games, add-on content and themes, as well as movies and TV shows.

Content purchased in Sony’s new online store from a PC (either Mac or Windows) is added to the My Downloads queue within the PlayStation Store. The purchased game, movie or TV content is then downloaded directly onto the PlayStation 3, PS Vita or PSP. Users can also watch movie and TV content via the Windows-exclusive Media Go app or on Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets.

Sony is going through a massive overhaul of the user experience for many of the company’s devices. The new PS Store for PS3 was launched recently. The company will continue to update the online store with new features to improve usability and convenience for finding, purchasing and accessing content.

Going forward, users of the new online store can expect to experience the advanced recommendation functionality and automatic remote download of purchased content, as well as support for mobile phone and tablet browsing. Sony is making an effort to simplify everything for the consumer.

The online store first became available in European territories in December. The new PS Store can be accessed at store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com.

Sony also announced the Sony Entertainment Network will now be compatible with PayPal. Account holders can add funds to their wallets via the online money-handling service. In turn, the money in the wallet can be used to purchase games, movies and TV episodes from the PS Store. PayPal is unavailable for Brazil at the moment.
