The free shipping thingy seems nice.
It might work out, if they expand on it, and keep adding games.



Trying to leverage their online consumer base to compete with amazon and other stores. As well as fill the gap that game station will leave once its bankrupt



Oh snap. this is super convenient



Well if they do it in Brazil and price is good may use their free shipping.

Finally they can sell consoles by themselves



Retailers disliked that



Only downside I see is you’re paying MSRP versus saving money shopping elsewhere. For example, HZD $20 from Sony or $13 on Amazon, both with one day shipping if you’re a special member.

Would be nice if they add games that are harder to find without jacking up the price.



As long as Sony can keep the prices competitively low as Amazon and Walmart then this is a nice option. (Unlike Gamestop/EBgames where they dont drop their prices or are too late for it when they do)

If they don't, they won't sell much so no need to worry.
