Sony Offers Incentive to Buy From the PS Store Over Retail

September 30, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


Many PSP owners, despite being able to more easily purchase games from the PlayStation Store, still choose to buy their UMD titles at a retailer. Now Sony is offering an incentive to get PSP owners to choose the PS Store over retail.

Many retailers offer exclusive pre-order extras, which lures consumers into buying from them. Now Sony has a similar solution for the PlayStation Store. Starting tomorrow, anyone who purchases Gran Turismo from the PlayStation Store, gets a free in-game car. So if you weren’t sure where to pick your copy of Gran Turismo, the PS Store is the only place you’ll get the 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V in Metallic Blue.

Hopefully Sony offers more incentives like this in the future. Doing so will make purchasing from the PS Store, that much more enticing.
