This morning Kotaku was sent an anonymous tip from a developer claiming to have a sneak peek at the soon to be revamped PlayStation Store.
If it's got Sackboy... it's good. ;) Regardless of whether this is real or fake, I like the layout a lot better. It looks like it takes proper advantage of the space offered, and it may be a bit easier to navigate. Only time will tell.
sackboy makes my day
it looks fake. But glad to knw update to ps store is coming maybe now we can get daily updates instead of having to wait for a specific day. Though not such a big deal but it would be nice
Still not there. C'mon Sony. You made a gorgeous looking console. Even the console's website is sleek. The PS Store looks so generic. I mean, so bland and blue. Jeez. The blue is so....well blah. Good start but come with it Sony. Make the PSN something that isn't an eyesore.
@lifendz - Agreed. If you look at that technincal marvel in the PS3 with all its abilities (blu-ray, Cell, and the list go on). One can not help to be impressed, but compare all of tis spectacular features to to PSN and the PSN seems like it is outdated and should be apart of late last gen. It does not feel like it should be part of a machine that is that far advance in tech. People will say that PSN is relatively new, but so is the PS3. Others will mention home. Home will without a doubt improve the PSN. Itwill be a sim based online feature, which will be popular to some and not to others, but I m talking about basic stuff like in gme XMB, in game cross game chat, etc. I always here it will be here in a few months, bt really it should have been there at launch or shortly after. I just want the best out of my PS3 online service.
looking good i see if its real looks like we are getting the home beta in April then ?
Sweet, i hope so
this is a fake.
I suspect its fake, or a concept at best. Looks good however
i dont see how its good, it looks just as confusing as the current one to me.
i've never seen the xbox store.
I still hoping for the SingStar one. Can someone give me my bubble back. TheMart stole it again :) Edit: Wow I already got it back. Who ever you are stranger I give you not one, no two thumbs up :)
This might have been something an artist made a while back. This looks good, but it's kotaku?...lol
Why give Kotaku such a hard time, didn't they oust home, regardless of threats of blacklist?
that's so good!
Its fake but I'll be shocked if its real.
All i got to say is Home.
its kinda look crowded and busy.... but its much better than the old version, anyways its a rumor so we still dont know what the layout really looks like.
Kinda looks similar to the itunes and singstar stores, but doesn't look any easier to navigate through They should just copy the xbox marketplace. They'll receive more praise than criticisms
Kinda wish it would be integrated into the XMB. Looks better though.
Looks good, but I doubt it's the real deal.
this looks fine, I just hope that the navigation controlls work better than the current ones.
If this is authentic, it looks great.
i meant, huh because i was confused by peoples reactions..
damn that looks good much better than before- good work Sony
not great but good anything is an improvement from the original psn page >_>
You can see that the icon for Haze is a wallpaper with the XMB in the background.. lol
Price of echochrome: 9,99 $ 'Nuff said
I think it looks ugly and too compact. Singstar doesn't look like that at all - and Sony are said to be basing the look of the PlayStation store in that UI
Looks good! Very simply and intuitive looking to me. :)
but it looks so similar to the current one as to leave a bad taste in the mouth. I'd rather have something with a new theme, or perhaps we should be able to choose themes for the store, just have the same layout and template.
i guess it looks okay...
Better be fake! I haven't waiting a year just for them to mess around with the layout of little boxes.
Agreed, however... seeing as there are those tiny aeros ( > ) next to the selections, I wonder how they are going to streamline movement from selection to selection? ( perhaps a sixaxis tilt to the right or left?) because whatever they come up with, I just want it to be better and have a less profound 'clunk' like feeling where you have to move the cursor over the object to find out what it is. (Speaking of which, the nice little icons on each bos that shows what type of file it is ; it's simple, and a superb improvement over what we have now) If this 'concept' is fake, I still hope sony gets it streamlined!
I expect some more tabs as one of the things the actual PSN miss is a good navigation xmb. Lacks for DEMOS/PS1/VIDEOS/GAMETRAILERS makes difficult to find something if you not looking specifically for it. Also hope for them to set a calendar/agenda for the releases and a better what's new list as actual one, again, lacks more than 10 items and lastly with the rockband+GH3 some items are left out.
ts fake. Its PLAYSTATION Store not Playstation Store. Its LittleBigPlanet not Little Big Planet. Wheres the PS Store icon. Street fighter hasn't even been announced yet. Its a very good mock up though and there are things there i like.
Notice the NBA Ballers pic? http://cache.kotaku.com/ass... Well, its from the PS2 game. http://images-eu.amazon.com... Lol, caughttt
Jesus Christ what does it take to satisfy people...... I really don't even care how PSN looks, I just go in, grab what I want and leave. Regardless of how beautiful they make it, it's not mandatory. Quit whining, it's free, be happy.
right now, the PS Store is a bit clunky and unqieldy. It's FUNCTIONAL, but it could and should be much easier to navigate and see things. The great thing about the XMB is that it's easy, not confusing, and looks sleek. Maybe we're all spoiled by the XMB, but most of us want a store with those qualities, even if it takes a different stylistic approach.
sweet but fake
I don't think it looks real, or that it is an improvement over the current PS store from a visual or usability perspective.
If you read what they say, they make valid comments. It does look cool though, i wouldn't mind seeing that as the new store. Hope it turns out as good or better when they release it.
Needs more cow bell...
even CLOSE to real...there are so many brand issues...
Or it won't matter. I hope Sony chooses to use their resources of music, movies, and older games this time around.
Looks much better then what we got now... would love to see this as the update.
I'm really not feeling this alledged PSN face lift. Maybe I'm just expecting too much
how about they release different layouts to public and let us choose. Or make different layouts avaiable to choose from!!
kotaku is right the branding is all wrong. It has to be either an early concept or fan-made.
It's not bad, actually. But I was hoping for something better the psn store need moar DLC :(
If you are confused by the store layout youre pretty stupid, in my opinion,if it looked like it would be a step in the right direction...
am i the only one who doesnt mind the current layout? i load it up, grab what i want and leave. doesnt really matter how it looks as long as it works...
Xbot scum no doubt. i like it, i mean compared to wot we got now
Sweet. Looking forward to the new update. PS3 FTW!!!!!!!!!!
a great concept but I don't think thats it
Was exited.. but it dosnt look like they have made much change ^^ PSN is nice XBL Rocks !
I rather have some options/settings to let the end user have stuff he wants to show up, well something to that extent. One thing is for sure SONY is f'n dragging! They seem to be taking their sweet as time. It better be worth the wait for what it's worth.
And for the trolls, FREE PSN >>>> Pay to play XBL And any one notice the 'Go to Movie Store' / 'Go to PSP Store' on the left side? yumm..
You get what you pay for. 'nuff said.
It looks exactly the same except that they moved around some icons. does anyone else think the same?
