Sony Network Entertainment International and Sony Computer Entertainment America announced a new online store this week. The online store has launched in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. The store will allow PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network users to buy games, movies, TV shows, and other content.

Sony promises that the new online store offers rich and detailed product pages making it easy to browse the store catalog containing what Sony claims to be millions of pieces of game-related content. The game content includes downloadable games, add-on content, and themes. The store is accessible through the PS3 and content can be purchased online via computers.

Content purchased using a computer for the PS3 will be added directly to the My Downloads area within the PlayStation Store. The content is also accessible using the PlayStation Vita or the PSP. The content also includes movies and TV episodes available through the online store that can also be watched on any Windows computer via the Media Go application for Windows PCs.

The movie and TV content can also be viewed on Android-powered Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets. Sony says that this online store was first offered in Europe in December. As of January 24 the store is available in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. Sony announced not long ago that people can also find their account wallet using PayPal and those wallet funds can be used to purchase any content from the new online store.
