It's things like this that make me wonder how much testing went into the new store... it's not user friendly, it's slow, things can be a hassle to find and now this. Sure it looks nice, but COME ON!

I was trying to get this to work on my PS3 last night, but couldn't. It kept coming up with Network Unavailable. Might have to try this again, but it's nice to have proof or what the next free Plus game will be on the PS3 and Vita.

EDIT: Nope! After changing the date, I have seen NBA Jam for free, for Plus users.

admiralvic1399d ago

Did you remember to change the year?

I am still on my fat 80gb PS3 and the new PS Store is giving me all kinds of headache. But before I do that, lets talk about search function.

I hate the way the new SEARCH feature works with alphabetized list. Theoretically, it should be easier to get what we are looking for using the list but when the list itself is not accurate that is when it gets frustrating.

I wanted to purchase SONIC 4 Episode 2 so I went ahead and searched in the letter S. The top 5-6 results were so off the charts! I then tried to use filters even that crapped out. It took me a GOOD 15 minutes just to find Sonic 4 Ep2 and that is frustrating

Now the problem that I am facing with the PS Store is very annoying. It starts lagging and turns real slow! Like for instance, say that I have been browsing the store, it keeps getting slow all the time. Pressing PS button also doesn't work, the whole navigation becomes impossible because it feels like that the PS3 is all of out RAM! And I mean COMPLETELY out of memory because I have to wait at least 15 seconds to see the Quit screen after pressing the PS button.

now with NBA Jam out, can you already see next weeks? I would try it myself, but I am away from home right now

Blastoise1399d ago

I agree. I prefer the old one. The new one is just soooooo slow.

-Alpha1399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )

I've pretty much avoided checking out the store because it's so slow. I could just bring the old one up, take a quick look, and leave. This one is just too much of a hassle to even bother starting up.

guitarded771399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )

Yeah, I thought I'd get used to it, but I no... it sucks. They need to go back to the old store. But NBA Jam On Fire Edition and Cronovolt are something to look forward to.

doogiebear1399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )

Vita only gets cronovolt? -_-. I wish they just gave us more psp and ps one games rather than shovelware trash.

doogiebear1399d ago

Chronovolt is a buggy, boring piece of trash. Most reviews average between 5-7 out of 10. Damn I wish we could get a better game instead for vita....

FACTUAL evidence1399d ago

If you guys think this is bad, The ps store stole money from me. Long story but I have the email and got the money refunded too.

Aggesan1399d ago

I don't see the issue if you got refunded..?

Dark_Overlord1399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )

Yes he did get refunded but its the trouble it causes that can be the problem.

e.g I had Virgin take their payment 1 day early, (the money wasn't in there) it resulted in a bank charge, a 'fine' from Virgin and when my regular money went in they instantly took it and left me with next to nothing. After some angry phone calls to Virgin and a chat with the bank I had the charges refunded from both. Like I say, I got refunded, but the inconvenience it caused for that week or so (leaving me with hardly any money) was definitively a major inconvenience.

DigitalRaptor1399d ago

What I don't get, is that the browser based store ( works seamlessly and quickly, but the one that's based on the same HTML5 framework on PS3 is slower and takes a while to load initially.

Maybe it's the PS3's hardware, but surely if it can run something like Uncharted 3 and Killzone 3, it can run the store fluidly. Strange.

b_one1398d ago

implementation and porting :) look about what tools they used to build store

Raoh1399d ago

I don't think its lack of testing, I think its lack of knowledge from the internal devs.
I think sony should hire some outside devs, android devs etc. People that are up to date with discoring exploits early.

SOny is still just making a product and releasing it not accepting that people are more savy than before and that it does not all end at the hardware. THe software is equally if not more important.

rainslacker1398d ago

Honestly, why a store based server would run off anyone's local time and not server time confounds me. All I can figure is it has something to do with day one releases, so people can play at midnight.


"its slow" is just about the biggest understatement of the century. The new playstation store is one of the most retarded things sony has ever released.

It is nothing short of UNBELIEVABLE that anyone let that garbage see its way to consoles. the old store was fantastic! WHAT WERE PLAYSTATION EXECS ON?!

the new PS store is a joke.. the last one was the best. this one even has frame rate problems for shits sake

guitarded771399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )




Are you going grammar Nazi because it's kinda pathetic to have poor grammar in a story's headline... or because you run a gaming site and see them as a rival?

doctorstrange1399d ago

More that because I run a gaming website I believe games journalists should adhere to basic rules of grammar

admiralvic1399d ago (Edited 1399d ago )

I like the S you added to Game Journalists.

Also don't forget the period. ;)

guitarded771399d ago

Just messin' with you... It bothers me too. I have a hard time taking a site seriously when they have poor grammar.

Good thing I didn't give in to Sound Shapes today.

zgoldenlionz1399d ago

Nice job! Nothing worse than nabbing something right before a sale. It's a really fun game and worth the price tag, but after the holidays everyone can use a little savings.

Capt-FuzzyPants1399d ago

Yeah I'm always a bit skeptical about buying the cheaper downloadable games like Sound Shapes, Quantum Conundrum and those types of games because I don't want to miss out on the savings that I might get with PS Plus if I hold out.

Flandy1399d ago

I was expecting it to go on sale next seeing as they put Counter Strike GO and Journey on sale so I was waiting till next week to see if it would go on sale. Looks like it ended up being a good idea.

BLAKHOODe1399d ago

That's why I rarely buy anything off of PSN now that I have a Plus account. I don't want to buy something only for it to be heavily discounted a week later.. or free.

PirateThom1399d ago

Chronovolt is awful though.

Godchild10201399d ago

Thats why they are giving it away for free. They are also hoping there are some that might like the game and pick up the DLC.
