- Astro Bot: Rescue Mission

While this is a limited selection, the post on PlayStation Blog notes that the store will expand its offerings over time. There's also a temporary discount on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro bundles with 12 months of PlayStation Plus being offered.
With the PlayStation 5 almost certainly arriving in 2020 and the final big PlayStation titles such as Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II on the way, this is an interesting time for PlayStation to finally invest in an online storefront. We'll keep you updated on major changes, such as if the store expands to other countries.
