PSUni: How Sony Can Improve the PSN Store

PSUni: "PlayStation Network is a great place to get a lot of games, videos, and other content that can enhance the gaming experience. Purchases and downloads are quick and the store is organized neatly into games, videos, and other sections, but there’s one thing that would make the store much better: a more simplified search feature."

I want the old store back. I feel it's easier to navigate and loads faster.

I do like the presentation of the new store, it does look modern.

It seams the new store was never tested on consoles but was on the web browser. The web browser version works so well and I can only assume they ported it over to give the same look and feel but it is horrible. It doesn't work very well. The old store was pretty simple (except the search function) which I never understood the complaints. The new store would be great if they improve the stability of it because parts of it keep crashing

I like the new store, they finally got all the psp junk out my way when all I want is stuff for my ps3.

There's no "feeling" to it.

I've timed the new store. The fastest task it's managed to complete is adding an item to the cart in ~75 seconds.

Removing items from the cart tend to crash the store.

Sony has built up a lot of goodwill over the years, but IMHO most of it has vanished over the past few thanks to their abominable decisions re: the PS3 and Vita.

Change it back maybe? Seriously what was wrong with the old one?

Also, I just got NBA Jam because of plus, and I'm pretty sure I clicked like 12 times to download it. Click click add to cart click click confirm accept click click download.

That happens to me too. But it happened when I entered a super voucher code for Uncharted 1 and 2 and I ended up having to go trough and push download for every individual item. Such a pain in the ass.

The new store is an epic fail.
Looks nice but barely works, is full of bugs and the search engine sucks.
Also the Vita store should be brought up to the top and not stuck at the bottom of the selection screen where no one can see it.

The search engine sucks? No that's too nice.

A full keyboard layout versus the new vertical alphabet. I rage every time I have to use the thing.

what pisses me off is that you can't find anything, and its a long process. The only reason why I think they changed it is cause the ps4 will have an updated psn and the ps3 psn store will need to be the same as the ps4 store.

It's like looking into a bucket full of bats, i'm almost afraid to move around the store.
They should go back to the old design.

Maybe organise the download list into different categories such as full games, demos, add ons, themes instead of having to scroll through an enormous list of everything I downloaded over the years. Also a little icon beside all items in your download list letting you know what's downloaded and installed on your system, this would be especially handy for add ons.
