Sony Launches Newly Designed PS Store, Is Privacy And Spam Protection Guranteed?

Sony has officially launched its new Sony Entertainment Network online store in the U.S.A, which means U.S citizens can now buy games, add-ons, movies, and more for their PSP, PS Vita and PS3 right from their favourite web browser.

So, how does it work? All you have to do is visit the new store on a web-enabled device and sign in using your Sony Entertainment Network or PlayStation Network username and password.

Once you’ve done that, you can browse, search, and buy your favourite games and TV shows.

If you purchase something through your web browser, it will automatically be added to the ‘My Downloads’ section of the PlayStation Store on your PSP, PS Vita, and PS3. The next time you connect your PSP, PS Vita or PS3 to Internet, it will download the content.

Sony is currently working on new features for its web-based store, including automatic remote downloads which means you’ll be able to buy a game (or movies etc.) on your smartphone or computer, and have it automatically install on your home console or portable console.

But the real question is, is privacy guaranteed? Considering the ID Theft in PS3 or the exploit where you could use random credit cards to buy games, this is a little bit suspicious.
