The PlayStation Direct store has opened its virtual doors in the UK, allowing fans to purchase consoles, accessories and physical games directly from Sony.
Sony announced earlier this week she was finally bringing her own online store to Europe, starting with Germany. The UK store is online today and there will soon be in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The PlayStation Direct service was already available in the United States as early as 2019.
As for what exactly you can collect, that’s about what you expected. It looks like the store will be selling PlayStation 5 consoles, although just like stores elsewhere, they’re currently out of stock at the time of writing. You can get the three official DualSense wireless controllers as well as the Pulse 3D wireless headphones in a recent white and black version. The virtual shelves are also filled with other accessories such as the HD camera and the multimedia remote control.
There is also a selection of first-party titles, including Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Return and Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup. You’ll also find a smaller selection of PlayStation 4 games and hardware to purchase. These include the 500GB PS4 Slim consoles and DualShock 4 controllers.
As an added bonus, PlayStation Plus subscribers get free standard shipping on all orders, which is handy. You can consult the Buy PlayStation Direct on your own here.
