Sony has expanded its PlayStation Store payment options on the PlayStation 3, allowing users to fund Sony Entertainment Network purchases via PayPal's online money transfer service.

PayPal support was introduced for Sony's Entertainment Network website back in January, and mobile PayPal funding was later made possible with the Mobile Billing option. Up until this week, however, users accessing the PlayStation Network via the PlayStation 3 were only able to add funds using a credit card or prepaid voucher.

A firmware update for the Xbox 360 added PayPal as a billing option in 2011.
