PlayStation Direct

The PlayStation Direct store has opened its virtual doors in the UK, allowing fans to buy consoles, accessories and physical games directly from Sony.

Sony announced earlier this week it was finally bringing its own online store to Europe, starting with Germany. The UK store has gone live today, and there’ll be ones in France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg soon. The PlayStation Direct service had already been available in the US as far back as 2019.

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

As for what exactly you can pick up, it’s pretty much as you’d expect. It does look like the shop will be selling PlayStation 5 consoles, although just as with stores elsewhere they are currently out of stock at the time of writing. You can pick up all three official DualSense Wireless controllers as well as the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in both white and the recent black version. The virtual shelves are stocked with other accessories like the HD Camera and Media Remote too.

There’s also a selection of first party titles, including Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Returnal and Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. You’ll also find a smaller selection of PlayStation 4 games and hardware to buy. These include the 500GB Slim PS4 consoles and DualShock 4 controllers.

As an added bonus, PlayStation Plus subscribers get free standard shipping on all orders, which is handy. You can check out the PlayStation Direct shop for yourself over here.
