Use your mobile to pay for your purchases on your PS3
Today Edy, an e-cash service available on walletphones, announced that the latest upgrade to the PlayStation 3’s firmware will allow you to pay for your PS3 online shopping with your mobile phone.
To use your mobile to buy things from your PS3, you’ll need a PaSoRi FeliCa reader-writer, which will also work on a PC. When you get to the checkout, all you need to do is touch your mobile on the PaSoRi reader to charge your Edy account and you’re good to go.
A quick look on Amazon.jp shows that PaSoRi readers are currently selling for around 3000 yen ($25). Of course, if you don’t have one already, you’ll have to use a standard credit card to buy it from your PS3 for now ;)
