Digital PS4 Games Are Now Sold on Green Man Gaming
Mafia 3, BioShock, and Uncharted are among the PS4 games now available on Green Man Gaming.
Online game key retailer Green Man Gaming announced via press release today that it has partnered with Sony US to bring a bunch of PS4 games to its digital store. Buying game keys for the PlayStation platform is only available to those in the US.
"The Sony US partnership brings us a step closer to achieving our vision of becoming the number one digital games retailer in the world," Green Man Gaming CEO Paul Sulyok said. "By offering our customers a wide range of digital games that they can play on their favourite platforms, we're giving the gaming community the ultimate multiplatform destination to shop, connect, and get the best insights online."
Green Man Gaming offers pre-release PC games at sometimes surprising discounts. This means you might be able to buy games like Uncharted 4, BioShock: The Collection, and The Last Guardian for cheaper than they'd cost on the PlayStation Store. We tested this, and games like Mafia III and Uncharted 4 currently offer a five percent discount off the regular price as long as you sign in with a free account. You can check out the PlayStation games page here.
Pages for Nintendo and Xbox games are also live on Green Man Gaming's website, though US customers can't purchase games for those platforms at the moment. Green Man Gaming signed a deal with Nintendo to sell digital games in the UK, so every game on the Nintendo page would show as "Coming Soon" if you're in the US. The Xbox page simply says, "Coming Soon."
The online retailer has been accused in the past of selling unauthorized game keys. It denied these claims, stating it sources its games "responsibly through authorized third parties." In response to the whole situation, Green Man Gaming now provides information on where the game key came from on its pages.
