A PlayStation Network storefront opened up on UK Amazon, to provide gamers a central hub for digital games, PS Plus subscriptions, DLC's, and season passes for the Sony consoles, Vita, PS3, and PS4.
See the Amazon UK store here.
A PSN store opened in the U.S. last month on Amazon as well. That store offered a $5 savings back card. No such promotion has been announced for the UK branch yet.
This past Monday PSN was done as Sony was running standard maintenance on the site to improve PSP and PS Vita functionality.
"We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned network maintenance for PlayStation platforms scheduled for Monday, December 9th from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM Pacific Time (12 noon to 5:00 PM Eastern). To clarify, this is currently scheduled to be a 5 hour maintenance," PlayStation posted on their community forum.
PSN was supposed to work as normal as far as games and apps, but the Store, Home, and Account Management will be down during that time. However, some users complained of sign in issues.
"This maintenance will increase the number of devices that can be activated by an account as a portable gaming device. This means that you can now activate up to three portable gaming devices (PSP (PlayStation Portable) and PlayStation Vita) on your SEN account. This new portable gaming device allotment is in addition to the other network improvements being implemented during this downtime," the post for PlayStation said.
