Paypal Is Now A Billing Option For The PlayStation Store

It was added as a billing option for the Xbox 360 back in 2011, and now it has finally made its way to the PlayStation 3.

As announced over at the PlayStation Blog, Paypal is now supported for Sony Entertainment Network purchases. Time to buy!

Paypal support was introduced for SEN's website earlier this year, and mobile Paypal funding came later. But up until now, those accessing the PSN via the PS3 weren't able to pay for any purchase with Paypal's system. They could only add funds to the online wallet via credit card or pre-paid voucher. Well, now you've got another way to spend more cash on your favorite hobby...the temptation to overspend is just awful, isn't it? Not for me; I'm too damn practical.

Do you anticipate utilizing the PSN more during the next generation? And if so, what for? Full games? Gonna start getting more DLC? Or will you take advantage of the other available media, such as TV shows and movies?

I was already using my paypal credit card, but I must admit I don't like the whole adding funds to the wallet thing.

Hopefully, this will also be available on the PS4 on Day One. I don't use a credit card, just a bank account with very little in it for online purchases via PayPal.

It's much more convenient now that they moved it from their official site to the actual Store on the console now.

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
