I've just tried it out. It is slightly faster and the pages do load in quicker. It isn't a huge improvement but it's certainly better than it was.

The store takes about the same amount of time to load but the pages do load a lot faster. I'm happy with the improvement.

Do people actually fall for this bs?

It's a bot, responding is useless. And apparently they do, because it's pretty common.
TheFreak  +   743d ago
Oh ok thanks for the reply. I'm a noob when it comes to these kind of things, but even I don't fall for it.

Last thing I want on these sites are captcha, but with these bots?... it might just happen sooner than later.

Have they fixed the errors when trying to access the cart yet Gribble?
GribbleGrunger  +   742d ago
I didn't check that out, sorry. I'm definitely happy with the update, but then again I just swoop in to PSN on Wednesday, get what I need and I'm done with it for a while, so it never really bothered me that much anyway.
insomnium2  +   742d ago
Any change to the store's loading times is desperately needed. I must say I absolutely HATE the new store. Harder to find stuff and sllllllllooooowwwwww as hell. My god it's been annoying.

I've been waiting for the right time to say this...

But doesn't the store sound like your navigating through Gran Turismo 5 menus? LOLOL

It's cool tho but I know somebody on here had that same thought... no one huh....

LOL well let's update this store now shall we.. peace

(Update) Interesting 9pm EST here no store update yet here.

Pages load faster. Pretty much the only gripe I had with the new store.
MikeMyers  +   743d ago
Sounds good, I'll have to check it out later.
Summons75  +   743d ago
Ugh just go back to the old store. The new store may look nice but when I have to go to have different pages to download one demo that's just annoying. At least it loads a second faster now, now I only need to wait 29 seconds instead of 30 for load a page.
JoGam  +   743d ago
Change is good. I understand it was new version was slow but at least they are trying to improve it.
SnipeySnake  +   742d ago
Agreed, dunno why people here like it. I tried buying a new avatar and had to scroll through every individual one to find one i liked which took forever. In the old store they were separated by more categories which made things a lot easier. Also I hate having to do that check out stuff for demos/other free things. Not to mention the old store was faster.

All they would have to do is fix all the problems I stated and I would be fine with the new store.
asmith2306  +   742d ago
I like the new store. Was slow at first but the layout is much better than the old store. I can find things really quickly. I remember typing "Resident Evil 2" into the old search and a bunch (as in hundreds) of useless shit came up. The new search brought me straight to it.
remanutd55  +   743d ago
why there is no psmove section? im trying to buy a move game but i cant find a psmove section
8bitHero  +   743d ago
new store is extremely unorganized. the old store had a ps move section.
spunkee311  +   742d ago
Completely agree. TO get DLC for a game. Say for example Uncharted. You have to input each letter manually to find the game. Why?
You used to be able to go to PS3 add ons and T-Z and pick Uncharted and you are there.

Buying DLC sucks.
arbitor365  +   742d ago
there is no "playstation exclusive" section either. thanks sony, for removing features that I use and adding crap which I dont need, that only slows things down.

why couldnt sony add some sort of wishlist system? you know, something that would actually be a useful improvement.
dantesparda  +   742d ago
For PS Move pick Games/PS3 Games/All PS3 Games/Add Filter/PS Move
remanutd55  +   742d ago
thanks a lot but all that hustle for something that should be easier lol
remanutd55  +   742d ago
oh and there are more move games than the ones they have on their psmove section for example they dont have portal 2 motion on their move section but i find out that the game can be play with the move, bah i dont like the new store.

Is this store remote play compatible yet?
PhillipSantanaMusic  +   742d ago
no, i just tried from my vita.
ExPresident  +   743d ago
I really don't care for the new store. While it might look nicer I find it terrible to browse or locate what I'm looking for. I spent much more time just browsing the old store than I do the new one.

Speeding it up will definately help but I'll always prefer the old one to this.
Tru_Blu  +   742d ago
Agree, it's a pain in the butt trying to find anything on there now.
DwightOwen  +   742d ago
Hear, hear. Why can't Sony leave well enough the hell alone?

bob, the guy how looks after the store really f++ked up this time

just sort out the whats new section so i dont have to visit the store

porkChop  +   743d ago
I like the new store, but they really dropped the ball. Not so much the speed, even though that was annoying, but I mean with the organization. There used to be sections for each type of content, now there's only some. Move, 3D, etc should all have their own specific sections. I just don't see how they released a new store with less features and less organization than the previous store, it makes no sense to me.
PhoenixRising37  +   742d ago
I hate the amount of screens i have to go through to buy one thing. me trying to download the GoW ascension beta:

>playstation plus
>new arrivals
>GoW ascension beta
>proceed to checkout
>confirm purchase

your download finally starts.
ElitaStorm  +   742d ago
there is a reason why they have put search!
Ares84HU  +   742d ago
Even with the search functionality, it takes way too many "clicks" to download anything from the store. It should be just press download and done. Unless you are buying something...but you even have to checkout, confirm purchase, press download, press download in the background...and also have to wait wait to long while the new PS Store "thinks" about what you are trying to do.

The new layout is terrible I think. I really don't like it. It's anything but user friendly. I don't know what people were smoking at SEN when they gave the green light on this.
PhoenixRising37  +   742d ago
i don't think you understand.
Cam977  +   742d ago
Do the best improvement possible, bring back the old store.
Liamabob  +   742d ago
They need to just admit that it was a bad move and bring it back.

I appreciate it when older games that link you to the store still have the old view. Those were better days...
SAE  +   742d ago
They either improve it to be as fast as the old store to put it in ps4 too because it looks great or bring the old one for the ps3.
brew  +   742d ago
Cool. The store was very sluggish , like a wet sponge.
TheKayle  +   742d ago
this is why psn should be a payed service..as i said in the new sen thread
kenshiro100  +   742d ago
No, it shouldn't.
TheKayle  +   742d ago
so ppl should not cry about the platform issues..slow loading..bad rchitecture...etc etc (stuff that im reading here)

is not me (at least not anymore seen that i sold the ps3 waiting for the next gen) that is getting the worst online service from the two main console...

im just saying that an online service is something that cost....cost developement time..maintenance..research..t esting...big infrastructures....lots of employees...support....adverti sement..etc etc etc....
and what im seeing r bounces of childrens asking...everything...

"we want new IP's and the ips must be EXCLUSIVES....we want a fast rich peace online service ala XBL but totally for free...we want a powerhouse console".....
for how long time u thinked this could go ahead?.....

if the ps3 end 3rd in profit this gen...is ALSO for the psn mistake......so if u love the ps....hope that the next will be a payed service....or dont cry when is a shit..

read the comment....problems on problems.....u happy like this?....to u the answer

@ theKayle

PSN doesn't have to be a paid service to be better than xbl

Just look at steam (free service)
Ares84HU  +   742d ago

You act like you know what you are talking about when you have no clue.

Why don't you stop talking all that B.S. before you believe yourself!?

If you want to pay for the service, go and get a 360 and you can be happy with that knowing you are paying $50/year for something that should have been free.

People usually like to save money but it appears to me that you don't. Something went terribly wrong in your childhood I guess since you like to blow money when you don't have to.

What you are saying is basically is like this: When you walk into Best Buy you should pay $X just because you get access to their "service" plus you pay for whatever you want to buy. See how stupid that sounds??

Will you give me some $ since you act like you are so rich???

Ever since they released the new store I haven't been able to access it. Hopefully when I delete it and reinstall it, it will include this patch and hopefully fix my issue.
sway_z  +   742d ago
I like Xbox Live's smooth and fast UI compared to sluggish SEN.

....but to me Live looks childish with those stupid kiddie avatars and all the ads (despite paying gold subs)...not to mention the crazy MS currency system.

If it (Live) was free to play online, then all the above would be moot...but it's a paid for service so why all the ads?
BlindMango  +   742d ago
To let you know, it's still PSN, SEN is the Sony single-password ecosystem that connects all Sony digital entertainment services.
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   742d ago
Hmmm last time I checked the ps store had none game related ads to. Even with ps +
EliteDave93  +   742d ago
So SOny has changed the store once again? Or is it just the website store they were talking about?
Solans Scott  +   742d ago

MacUser1986  +   742d ago
I missed the old store, it loaded up in seconds and was way better than the current store.

Not everything needs change...
rapidturtle  +   742d ago
I like it. Seems faster, and I have no problems finding what I am looking for.

They need to reduce the amount of clicks it takes to purchase and actually hit the download button, its ridiculous. Before this "app ps store" came alone purchaseing items was much faster

If ur callin me lazy then u obviously are to poor to buy something from the pan store. Cause if u had u would no what I'm talking about
kingPoS  +   742d ago
What the store needs are proper filters, a search overhaul, & a lessened amount of steps to purchase whatever.

I sure miss the qwerty search.
ElitaStorm  +   742d ago
BrianC6234  +   742d ago
I've notice people complain about the new store but it's been fine for me. It is faster now but I never really had a problem.

I'm not a huge fan of the store now itself either. It looks nice but that's it.
It felt better organized before honestly before the upgrade.
