PlayStation 3 streamlines adding PayPal funds

Sony has snuggled up a little closer to PayPal, not quite making it so you can directly pay for PSN purchases with your PayPal account, but certainly making it simpler. PlayStation 3 people can now add funds to their Sony Entertainment Network wallet directly from the PlayStation Store.

When you go to pay for something at the Store checkout (games, movies, music, and so on), you can now add funds to your SEN wallet via PayPal, Sony explains in a PlayStation Blog post. It's not seamless, opening a web browser window to make the payment, but still, it's closer. The minimum topup amount of $5 is still in place, and the maximum of $150.

Sony already added the ability to pay into your wallet with PayPal through the website earlier this year, but this change streamlines it into the checkout process.
