Sony PlayStation 4 owners living in the UK might be pleased to learn that Amazon has today opened the doors on its new Digital PlayStation Store. The launch of the new Digital PlayStation Store on the Amazon UK website, follows on from the recent launch of the US version of the site last month.
The new Digital PlayStation Store now allows UK residents to purchase PlayStation Store top-up cards and codes to renew PlayStation Plus subscriptions, directly from the Amazon website.
Gaming website Eurogamer has compared a few prices: “So how do the prices compare? Amazon is currently matching Sony’s own prices to the penny – PSN games like Tokyo Jungle and The Unfinished Swan are £9.99 from both locations, while Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is £11.99 and Hotline Miami is £6.49.”
Unfortunately it doesn’t look as though Amazon have laid on any special promotions for the launch of a new Digital PlayStation Store within the UK. Unlike when the store launched in the US and offered a number of promotions to compete with Sony’s own PlayStation store.

To re-cap the Sony PlayStation 4 console will be equipped with 8-cores of AMD Jaguar processing power supported by 8GB of GDDR5 RAM together with a next generation AMD Radeon graphics card to process your games graphics.
