As both {{Xbox 360}} and {{Wii}} had their own digital distribution system, so must Sony have one for the {{PlayStation 3}}, {{PlayStation Portable}}, and {{PlayStation Vita}}.

The system seems to aim for a medium between XboxLiveArcade and WiiWare, favouring both new downloadable games (usually a slightly more non-standard kind than Xbox LIVE Arcade) and games from the first PlayStation. Although, it should be noted that [[NoExportForYou the selection of PSOne Classics in Japan]] rivals even that of the VirtualConsole, while other regions are a bit wanting at the moment. [=PlayStation=] Network is even beginning to have SegaGenesis and PCEngine games available, as well as a huge release of updated NeoGeo games (along with their own controller). While the Japanese service is better than its Western alternatives, the [=PlayStation=] Network is still in the ring against both Xbox LIVE Arcade and Nintendo's pair of services.
