With the news last month that UK retailer Game Group has begun selling Xbox Live downloadable content in-store, Sony has now stated that it is looking to sell PSN content at retail. Talking to British trade paper MCV, SCEE president Andrew House said that Sony wants to follow Microsoft's example. "We actually already have the same program in place with GameStop in the US" he said. "We would like to work with the right retail partners in Europe under the right model, to undertake the same sort of activity." Regarding the selling of downloadable content in stores, Game Group's commercial strategy director Tricia Brennan said, "We know that lots of customers want to play downloadable games and they look to us, as expert retailers, for advice on the best way to do it." Sony revealed last week at the Game Developers Conference 2011 that the PlayStation Network saw a 70 percent increase in annual revenues last year. Apart from the 948 games available for download from the service, PSN also offers 31,000 movies and TV shows for download, video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, and its Qore digital magazine.
