PlayStation Network U.S. web store coming this month

Automatic PlayStation 3 downloads also planned.

Sony will launch a web version of the U.S. PlayStation Store later this month, Sony Network Entertainment COO Shawn Layden told CNET at CES in Las Vegas.

Last month, Sony launched a web version of the European storefront.

Acording to Layden, the webstore will eventually allow users to buy a game via their internet browser and have the content automatically downloaded to their PlayStation 3. At the present time, users can only make purchases, which they would have to download themselves by powering on their PlayStation 3 and accessing the PlayStation Store.
