Sony says it wants to bring PlayStation Network games to high street shoppers, giving them the option to purchase the content over the counter without the need for an online transaction.

The scheme is already active Stateside, with US retailer GameStop stocking tons of PSN content.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's President, Andrew House, said Sony ”would like to work with the right retail partners in Europe under the right model, to undertake the same sort of activity", MCV reports.

Here in Blighty, Microsoft got there first, partnering with retailer Game, to sell XBLA content in-store. The programme, available in 40 Game stores across the UK, sees customers offered a selection of Xbox Arcade titles ranging from about £3 to £10. ®
