Sony has added a useful new feature to the UK PlayStation Network: you can now use your mobile phone to pay for content on the PlayStation Store.

When adding funds to your wallet, pop in your mobile number when prompted, either through the Store on the PlayStation 3 or on the Sony Entertainment Network web store, and you'll be sent a text message asking you to confirm the purchase by replying with the letter Y.

The top-up charge will appear on your next mobile phone bill or debited against your pre-paid account.

We've just had a go at it and it works well enough. It's not a huge deal, but it's a nice option to have and saves time.

"We are always looking at new ways to give our customers more choice in terms of content, accessibility and payment methods, and are pleased to be able to offer the option of mobile operator billing, which are becoming more and more popular," Gordon Thornton, vice president of Sony Network Entertainment Europe, said.

I can see this being abused by the crafty spotty teenager. "Just send them a text saying Y Mum/Dad".
