Sony Testing Playstation Online Payments with RBS

PSX Online

Playstation Online continues to take shape, with sources close to the Royal Bank of Scotland stating that the bank is working with Sony in the UK on trials of an online payment mechanism.

The deal was supposedly signed last week according to their source, with trials of the payment system due to start sometime around May, which should give them enough time to get most of the bugs out by September.

The payment system will be used for a wide range of transactions such as Xbox Live style arcade and retro game downloads, additional content purchases for PS3 titles, subscriptions for MMORPG titles, and even a pseudo in-game auction.  Of course as with most news lately we will have to wait till E3 for the full details.
