New PlayStation Store Impressions, Details & Info

On 17th of October, everything will change. We’ll have a brand new look and layout to the PSN store on PS3 which will completely overhaul how it handles in every day use.

Sony have been slaving away on the PSN store in secret for almost the last two years, taking opinions on how to improve the layout from numerous focus groups and gradually developing what effectively amounts to a completely new store. (PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Sony, Tag Invalid)

Now, that sounds impressive. No point in listing ALL the new features here but the one that jumps out at me is the download list sorting! Yeah, I know a lot of you are going to be very happy about that:

'Things like adding filters and sorting to the often painfully huge Download List which long term owners still have are on the list of things, much to many peoples’ delight, I’m sure.'

NICE

This is an odd site. We had pictures of this that got lots of hits but when we get the actual details, it gets four posts. No wonder there are a lot of people on this site that are ill informed

Just for ps3? Guess the ps vita store update will later on then. This store update sounds very promising :) Not only does it sound smoother but even faster!

This new store update & slim model makes me want another PS3 in a way.. Now if they could only do away with that damn xmb.. PS3 is starting to become what ive been waiting for, for 6 yrs.. The eastern titles getting localized like crazy & the exclusive games are just coming & coming.. Its already my go-to system for all things but the gap between MS superior UI is thinning out... Nx gen will kill when gaikai is in the mix..

Soo.... they made it look like the xbox 360 dashboard?
BitbyDeath  +   1053d ago
Isn't this what the 360 dashboard looks like?

No this is what it looks like.

It's not exactly the same but the PS3 one is clearly derivative of it. The fact that everyone is denying that either means they don't have an Xbox 360 or they just like admitting that they look similar.

Sorry "rpd123", you should take a look at the Sony Smart Tv's user hub and take a good guess on why this new PlayStation store design looks SO much similar to their SONY Smart Tv lines GUI...

Just a thought, really...

@one2thr
which if anyone has not known about , Sony has been using that Smart TV layout for a few years already. prior to this update. Sony is just merging their software across all their products. Tim Schaaff was one of the reasons for this A KEY point was that Tim is head of all software direction over @ Sony , and for good reason.

"Sony hired Tim Schaaff away from Apple more than five years ago to run its network entertainment business"
