    I’m about 90% sure that I’ve been using paypal for months, to purchase games from PSN through my Vita. I believe I was allowed to just choose it as a payment option at checkout.

    Along with the new update to the aging PlayStation Store, Sony has revealed that you can now fund your wallet with PayPal. It’s about time! Of course, this is something Sony is doing, so there are some potentially crippling limitations at hand.

    Currently, the feature has only been confirmed for European countries, but it might very well make the jump over to North America once our store updates, too. More importantly, however, is the fact that you must go through a web browser to fill your wallet, as seen above instead of right off of the PS3′s interface. That’s a little cumbersome, but at least it’s an option!

    The biggest detriment to people like me dreaming up devilish schemes of buying content from other regions is the disgusting region-lock implementation. *Your PayPal transaction will only go through if your PayPal account is registered in the same region as your PSN account is.* There are ways around this, and it won’t bother 99% of gamers, but why Sony would actively try to not take people’s money is baffling. Legal restrictions, maybe?

    At any rate, it’s above all a nice little option for us to use, especially those still paranoid after the massive PlayStation Network hack from last year. Does this benefit you?

    This is good news. I’ve been wanting this for a while. You can’t do it with your Vita though. You have to log in to your S.E.N. (Sony Entertainment) account and you can fund your wallet with a PayPal option. Then, of course with the added funds in the wallet, you can go shopping on the Vita. :-)

    If your Sony Entertainment Network account is registered in one of the countries listed below, then you can top-up your wallet with PayPal™ using our Account Management site:

    Austria
    Luxembourg
    Belgium
    Netherlands
    Finland
    Portugal
    France
    Slovenia
    Greece
    Spain
    Ireland
    United Kingdom
    Italy
    Please note that your PayPal™ account must be registered in the same country as your Sony Entertainment Network account. For example, if your Sony Entertainment Network account was set up in France, you will only be able to use PayPal™ if your PayPal™ account billing address is also in France.
