Sony makes Green Man Gaming an official PlayStation 4 code reseller

Green Man Gaming (GMG) has announced a landmark deal with Sony that will see the previously PC-only game key site begin selling codes for PlayStation 4 games, too. Console gamers will be able to buy them straight from the GMG site, copy the code, input it into their PS4, and begin downloading their brand new game.

This move is no small one, with GMG now becoming a Sony U.S. authorized online dealer. That gives it not only the ability to sell PS4 game codes on its site, but a sincere thumbs-up from Sony, too, that this site is a legitimate one.

This is quite important in online game sales, which have become inundated with dodgy key sellers and trading sites that don’t help developers and in some cases have even cost them money. Green Man Gaming, however, is anything but that and this deal with Sony goes a long way to endorsing that idea.

“The Sony U.S. partnership brings us a step closer to achieving our vision of becoming the No. 1 digital games retailer in the world. By offering our customers a wide range of digital games that they can play on their favorite platforms, we’re giving the gaming community the ultimate multiplatform destination to shop, connect, and get the best insights online,” said Paul Sulyok, founder and CEO of Green Man Gaming.

To celebrate this news, GMG is now offering all PS4 titles at a special introductory offer of 5 percent off. What kind of games does it offer? Everything from The Last of Us to God of War III Remastered, inculding BloodBorne, Uncharted 4, and Mafia III.

That’s just a handful of the available PS4 titles, though, all available at a slightly reduced rate while this promotion lasts. These games can only be purchased and redeemed in the United States for now, but visiting international versions of the GMG PlayStation page says it’s coming soon, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see PS4 codes available on international GMG sites in the near future.
