Taken from the PS Forums:


We have today unveiled a new online store that enables PlayStation®3 (PS3™), PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) and PC users to conveniently discover and purchase games, videos and more via desktop web browsers.



The new online store, available now in 15 European countries as well as Australia and New Zealand, offers users rich product pages with easy to use search and content discovery for the integrated catalog of millions of pieces of game-related content, including downloadable games, add-ons and themes, and movies and TV shows.

The launch of the online store follows the recent redesign of PlayStation® Store (PS Store) for PS3 and is part of an on-going process of PS Store development. Both the PS Store and the online store will continue to be updated with new features that improve usability and convenience for finding, purchasing and accessing content. For example, users of the new online store can look forward to the addition of advanced recommendation functionality and automatic remote download of purchased content, as well as mobile phone and tablet browsing in the future.



With an unprecedented amount of content now available in the PS Store, the online store delivers a convenient, visually compelling and easy to use destination for users to access and discover game, videos and more online. For PlayStation users, content purchased in the new online store from a PC is added to the Downloads list within the PS Store. Users can then download the content directly onto their PS3 and PS Vita system. People can also watch videos purchased via the online store on their Windows-based PC using the Media Go application.

The new online store is available today in UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Russia, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark and Finland and can be accessed via https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/. The online store will be available in North America and other regions in the future.

*Video content will only be accessible in the following territories: Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Australia.
A nice addition but as someone in that thread commented, "Just a shame that it doesn't send a request to download to the machine, if that was implemented, it would be perfect."
