    How does it work ? You buy download code from Amazon, and then redeem the game from PS3 ?

    Yes, Amazon has Buy and get code button. Now we need to study how regions work, can I european buy $dollar games.

    edit: Terms of Service has this clause, probably codes apply to US store only.

    Oh, nice. I've been hearing about how this became available for the 360 and basically allows you to give online games to people as a present. I'll definitely use this.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it uses the 'Redeem Code' option in the Store (also available in the Admin bit of the XMB). Should work for PSP games then too by the way, as it has the same system.

    EDIT: yeah, in this link above, if you go to the buy and get code panel on the top right, you can click 'How Buying Works' and see the redeem code in step 2.

    It's apparently limited to SCE-published games, at least for now.

    Amazon site says US only for billing addresses. So presumably this cannot be used by us Canucks either.

    Sony really seems to hate Canada.

    =)

    I'm sure it has more to do with e-commerce laws. Even the 360 Canadian Amazon store has yet to show up. :)

    Not really... PS stuff is usually priced the same as it is in the US, unlike MS or Nintendo. All content on PSN and PS hardware are priced the same, only BD based games are generally $10 more, but I think that has more to do with the retail side of things. Also, the PS3 seems to do relatively well here compared to the US.

    But I do get your point ;)
