Sony Planning More Updates To PlayStation Store

PlayStation StoreSony updated the look and overall format of its PlayStation Store last year, and while the new design is certainly flashier, I have to admit that I don't care much for its hodgepodge approach to organization.  However, the company is working on a new feature that I look forward to using, as it will make purchasing and downloading PlayStation 3 content so much more convenient.  C|NET has the news:

Following a similar move in Europe, Sony plans this month to launch a Web browser version of its PlayStation Store so U.S. gamers can remotely browse titles and make purchases. Eventually, the Web store will allow users to buy a game on the browser and have that content automatically downloaded on the PlayStation 3.

Bring it on!  It can be frustrating to buy a new digital PS3 title and discover that I have a multi-gigabyte download ahead of me before I can play my latest acquisition.  I'd much rather authorize a download remotely and then find the new game ready and waiting for me when I get home.  Imagine scooping up all of the month's new PlayStation Plus content ahead of time or queuing the latest demos before leaving work.  What's not to like?
