Game keys can only be purchased by customers in the United States, however.

Digital retailer Green Man Gaming issued a press release earlier today announcing a partnership with Sony to sell digital PS4 games through its online store. A caveat, though: only players with US PSN accounts can partake.

"The Sony US partnership brings us a step closer to achieving our vision of becoming the number one digital games retailer in the world," said Green Man Gaming CEO Paul Sulyok. "By offering our customers a wide range of digital games that they can play on their favourite platforms, we're giving the gaming community the ultimate multiplatform destination to shop, connect, and get the best insights online."

You can peruse Green Man Gaming's PSN sales at this page.

PS4 may represent the first step in Green Man Gaming's expansion to selling console titles. Pages for Xbox and Nintendo games can be found on the site, though the Xbox page displays Coming Soon banners as of this printing. The Nintendo page shows content, but clicking on a game sends you to another Coming Soon message.

Green Man Gaming has a reputation for offering huge discounts on popular and classic games. Until today, the service concentrated on selling digital keys redeemable through Steam and other PC platforms. It seems consumers can expect to apply those savings to console titles: Uncharted 4 and Mafia 3 are both discounted by five percent as of this printing.
