PlayStation Store has finally launched in India and with that an arsenal of paid and free content will be available for the Indian PlayStation 3 owners. One can download full games starting from Rs 225 for the PS3 and Rs 170 for the PlayStation Portable. With the launch of the PlayStation Store, users will also get a chance to try out PlayStation Plus membership for pretty reasonable rates. Annual subscription will cost Rs. 2850 and a six month deal will be at a ultra cheap Rs. 885.
“We are very excited to be bringing PlayStation®Store to the Indian market, making available existing games as well as PSN Exclusive games through digital download at even more attractive price points,” said Atindriya Bose, Country Manager – India, Sony Computer Entertainment. “Even before the launch, we saw good demand for the network in India, with nearly 50000 of Indian users signed up to the network already. With a fairly large installed base as well as impressive growth for PSP & PS3 combined with the development of broadband infrastructure in India, there is no better time to launch the PlayStation Store for the Indian market.’
