In an interesting move, Sony have partnered with mobile payment company Boku, to offer a new way to pay for items on the Sony Entertainment Network.
When purchasing anything from SEN; be it games, movies, music or television shows – You now have a “mobile” option when paying. Here, you can enter your mobile phone number, and a text message will be sent to you. Reply to this message, and the correct funds for your purchase will be charged to your next mobile phone bill (if you pay monthly), or taken immediately if you are on a Pay As You Go mobile subscription.
This method of payment should work with most UK mobile networks, and is certainly a different way of paying for your goods – Especially if you don’t want to deal with credit/debit cards and can’t get to the shops to purchase a pre-paid card.
