A short while ago I reported on THQ moving into Latin America. But it seems that I was mistaken, Sony is moving into the market. The SEC filings with THQ were a result of that so that THQ could sell their Sony platform titles down there. Here’s the announcement.

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today officially announced the expansion of PlayStation business into Latin America, making its award-winning computer entertainment systems and services formally available to the region. Latin America is a pivotal step in SCEA’s mission to bring engaging entertainment to people around the world, already consisting of an active worldwide install base of 21.3 million PLAYSTATION3  computer entertainment system, in addition to more than 17 million registered accounts for PlayStationNetwork.

Through a distribution partnership with Sony Latin America, PlayStation services are now available in select countries throughout the Latin America region. This includes access to PlayStation Network, a free entertainment network service that delivers original content, future-proofing system software updates, and online services that foster community among its worldwide audience.

In the coming weeks,, the official PlayStation website, will introduce a localized Web site providing the most current PlayStation news and information relevant to users in select countries in Latin America.
