In one sentence; is all about the money! Holidays Season is here Amazon needs sales to make revenue that is the cold hard fact...

I think Amazon realizes (or should realize) that restricting competitors on their website is only going to hurt them in the long run.
Amazon sells Xbox Live Points cards, so I see no reason not to sell this too - as long as Sony is willing of course. This PSP go experiment will be interesting to monitor.
Amazon costs more than they used to. I find that I don't use them as much anymore because of it.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I don't think it's a big deal. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority just bought the points through Sony. It's not often that these types of points are on sale. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of Amazon's profit is from the third party vendors they have on the site. It's somewhat rare to see an item from amazon in your search for a product.
People goto Amazon because it quickly became a one-stop shop for pretty much anything they wanted. If Amazon wants to try to restrict what is being sold there, they will lose customers to places that offer the people what they are looking for.
