Since the Playstation Store's inception the network has always pursued the goal of offering users an easy process whilst managing and purchasing their digital content, whether this be with downloadable content, PS1 classics, PS2 classics, PS3 games or portable games, the interface allows for quick transactions to minimise time spent not playing.

With regard to the Playstation 1 downloadable offering, Crash Bandicoot - a fast-paced action-adventure romp published in 1996 by the Playstation exclusive developer, Naughty Dog - the game has been on the store for a very long time, in fact, it was one of the first Playstation "Classics" added to the Playstation Network's digital store. Since the game's introduction to the Network we've seen thousands of sales, and as of today, Fred Dutton - the SCEE Blog Manager - confirmed that Crash Bandicoot had exceeded 500,000 sales in Pal regions, this was confirmed via the PS Blog EU.
