For those of you who bought the Sony Tablet S, a PlayStation Certified device, and have been wondering when you will get access to the official PlayStation Store, fret no longer, because it has arrived.
The PlayStation Store for PlayStation Certified devices launched today in nine countries — including the US and Canada — although it is appears that it is currently only available for the Tablet S, leaving Xperia Play owners out in the cold (despite the fact that their PlayStation Certified device came out first). Now that the Store has launched, there are 10 classic PSone games that are available for $5.99 a pop. These include Cool Boarders, Destruction Derby, Hot Shots Golf 2, Jet Moto, Jet Moto 2, Jumping Flash!, MediEvil, Motor Toon Grand Prix, Rally Cross, and Wild Arms.
The PS Store update is being rolled out over-the-air, so Tablet S owners will soon receive a notification informing them that the PS Store is open for business and the update is available for download. No news yet on when the update will be coming to other PlayStation Certified devices, but the PlayStation blog is urging users to “stay tuned” as they will be “providing more updates shortly.”
The Sony Tablet S was released on September 16 and is available for $499.99 for the 16 GB model or $599.99 for the 32 GB model.
