Could the PS3's new web portal be a sign of what's coming to the PlayStation Store next month?
I could care less about a new store. A new xmb with new features is more useful. I have no problem finding what I need on the store as it is, but wouldnt mind a change. It's just not really that big a deal like a new xmb would be.
Changing the XMB at this point isn't really needed. Hopefully they create an entire new one for the PS4 as they should then have a ton of memory which they could take advantage of.
Well it looks half decent, i hope the load times are faster than the current store.
For me, unified is the key word. Live had a great interface & such until the latest change (which may have been up to a year ago), but point is, I hopped onto the 360 & logged onto Live a few weeks ago & I hadn't been on for quite a while (as PS3 is my go-to, game riddled console), & I thought the current Live interface was absolutely terrible, confused & the worst they have mustered up yet. Why didn't they just leave the tab based xmb.
But to get back on point, I'm sick of this whole seperate store crap....just unify all english speaking territories to one PSN hub. Have the one HQ type situation, & within they can allocate what is bought from which countries & allocate the funds to each territory that earns them.
This will mean it all feels like were all using the same system, have the same demos, games & general content available to us.
The only detractor is that as is, I can, as an Australian in Australia, buy a U.S. PSN card from playasia (or wherever), & on my U.S. created account, I can purchase games & content for cheaper, or stuff that isn't available on Au store, like the banned MK's extra characters, & The Walking Dead games, & I have access to everything game related.....The only thing I can't buy, which is a bit dissapointing, is films & such for sale on U.S. store, which could be fixed with a unified store, as if set up right, your account & credit card info would determine where you are from, & then Sony could allocate the funds from one global HQ to the countries that the funds came from. Surely it is do-able, & surely now we will get a M rating in Australia, the whole Walking Dead, Mortal Kombat & such crap, would not factor in.
