Head to the Store and download the 26MB update to check out the new PlayStation Store. The organization seems to be a lot better than the EU version of the store.
New PlayStation Store is awesome.
I'm at work and I won't be able to check it until tonight CAN SOMEONE CONFIRM IF IT HAS THE PAYPAL OPTION PLEASE?
It is much nicer to look at that is for sure
The new store is amazing.
like the new slick interface. after messing with it for 5 minutes here are some things i hope they improve the starup time to the store took like 30 seconds compared to 10 seconds on the old store so hopefully that can be shortened I like how the videos are intergrated within the store itself, but it should have a pause button instead of restarting from the beginning oddly the 5 star ratings used to have the exact numbers like 4.36/5 but now it only shows the stars itself. I dont know if its bad thing but a minor difference from before. i didnt really search for things or see the organization so i cant tell if things are easier to find than before.
Just press X to pause the video.
Also: - Make an option in the download list to group content to one game. For example, a White Knight Chronicles folder that has ALL DLC purchased for that game in that folder and an option to redownload it all. - Some content shows that you haven't purchased it, when you have (glitch maybe?) - Make it to where when you try and download demos, you just download them and not have to add to cart and purchase them as if you are actually buying them with money. That's the only thing I saw that needed fixing, next to performance tweaks. EDIT: Another point I forgot was the search feature is nice how it predicts what you're about to say, but if you're using a keyboard you have to type slowly as if it's your first time using a keyboard to input what you want.
Hope everyone is enjoying it, ever since it came out in Europe I have been loving the new look
Is it faster?
It loads a bit slow, I'm sure it will get faster in due time. Anyway it takes some getting used to, it annoyed me how some if the menus are set up, I quickly adjusted to it. It can be annoying at first, give it 15 minutes of adjusting and it's pretty cool. Navigating is great, the start up is slow, but once you get on it goes seamless easily. I like the design and interface of the store. The advertisement looks great, I actually found a lot of dynamic themes on there because of the update lol. Just bought dishonored dynamic theme.
There is a loading screen before the store boots up, and there is loading time before the loading screen. You read that right, the loading screen has to load before it starts loading. Nothing major but it's starting to irritate me a little bit. Also, the chirpy PLING sound that would be made everytime the store finished loading up has changed. Not a fan of the new sound. Bit grumpy today.
It looks good but if the truth be told The new store sux, seriously the loading is slow and unless you know exactly what your looking for it takes for ever searching alphabeticly also in the last 2 weeks there seems to have only been like 2 things added to the updates.
Yes... main problem with new store is: Its painfuly SLOW. Everything from start-up (now it is application and no longer integrated directy to XMB like previous version... so dont expect start-up time will shorten with updates) to navigation. Dod you try to download "demo"? In old store it was about 2-3 clicks... now you must click about seven times. Also navigating is not smooth anymore... its clunky and choppy... They got all the power of PS3 and its moving like its running on 386PC...
Yup, this weeks "Latest Releases" in Europe were the DLC for Dark Souls and Borderlands 2. Both of which were out last week. As a PS+ subscriber I can't really complain though, can't expect AAA updates every week!
Time to Buy Some New Games
It's not user friendly at all, takes ages to go into it and come out of it, searching is worse and u have to press way too many times to download something!! But as long as it looks nice I suppose eh Sony? Wish they'd add more than 4 videos a week that have already been on youtube too!!
Things are set out a little better than in our eu and u got a little welcome video too but that's too be expected as our store is run by lazier people it seems!!
I tried to find some DLC for my kids on LBP2 this morning on the store as the ingame store was down it took quite a while to find it as it needs some serious organising to group content together under the addons section
Nice i'll check this out today
cool.. Ima try it when i get home
