Fragcast mourns the passing of the web-based PS Store - but gets over it fairly quickly! Will you miss the PS Store of old, too?
"Tomorrow we get a shiny new application-based interface made in a love-palace of stylishly designed win-bricks and fading page transitions of ultimate awesome. Hee! And then... within about 5 minutes, everyone will be b!tching about something else." God, I love that last sentence.
it wasnt the store that bothered me... I could live with it being web based etc. What did bother me was the crappy EU updates... no amount of polish can change that. Hopefully they will pull there finger out after this update though
it was easy to navigate and it worked with me flawlessly. But why are there so many dumbasses out there, saying they didnt like the old store because it was hard to naviate WTF?, it couldnt be much simpler if you looking for a demo just go to Games, then click Demos or if your looking for a game video just click on Videos then Games Trailers
Well as long as it does the exact same stuff as the old stuff did plus more its good rithens or however it is you spell that
lol lovin that last part...i guess its hard to be so patient about things but you know what...im going to have my ps3 for a long time with no intention of getting rid of it so sony take whatever time you need to fully polish the sh!t out of psn...most people dont realize that it took 5 years for xbl to be what it is today and it is without a doubt a great service...for a free service that we have with psn its shaping up to become one hell of a service as well but it takes time...psn has only been going on for one year heading on to number two so be patient...or at least try to
powdered toastman is the sh1t
RIP - you were not as bad as they made you seem to be, you got the job done.
It got the job done. I never once felt like I couldnt get to a game, download it or anything like that. Really, I must have a crapton of patience because i never wanted to go on a tantrum as some people make it seem like the store made them do. Im happy for change, but didnt mind the old.
I personally have no patience, and must also agree that it got the job done, and was fair to navigate...at least from point they finally integrated the L1 & R1 buttons for page-flipping. Still, it was relatively static and limited, and did not justify the greatness and sleek of the PS3. That said, I eagerly look forward to what tomorrow brings.
basically... the old store was a shambles to look at and use... but never so bad that it wasn't functional.
oh who am i kidding... IT SUCKED
The PSN Store was a damn good first try.
I have high hope's for the new interface os PSN. So bring it on i can't wait.
whos going to the funeral tonight. they better have good snacks there
I heard it was a potluck. I'm bringing those little hot dogs on a stick.
Show me Potato Salad!!!
ezcheez: thats a shame, I only like kind ones.
We will not miss you at all. Only jokeing we will. Does anyone no what Server/website the Tomb stone will be on i want to lay down some CG flowers and say good bye. * Truns round and starts to cry as he is playing Flow* lol
You got the job done, even if it was a bit confusing navigating your pages.
I mean i bought a buncha games and it worked flawless. Yes this new interface will be nice to look at. But its not liek you spend hours on end in the playstation store.....(well i guess now you could) lol.
Good riddance bootch!! Although you were very easy to purchase from, the new store makes me waffles.
Yes it did the job, but there were tons of room for improvement.
we're not mourning for the deceased Mr. Morris down the road, but we're mourning for a bit of code? oh thy lord, what hath thee world come too?????? (please note that Mr. Morris does not exist, he was a fictional character in my terrible joke- any resembelence to persons in real life is purely coincidental and not intended to offend) @Skerj i was gone for about 2 minutes- that damn Mr. Morris- he sure can spew a lot of hate in a small amount of time
You should have heard what he was saying about you when you weren't around.
:'( No you wasn't that bad, you had a boring look, walked wired, but your INSIDE was fantastic, at least when you were in the US. R.I.P!
it's time to start anew. This is sony's 2nd chance of redeeming itself in the eyes of its loyal consumers.
u crack me uo i LMAO
Hell Naw. Can't wait to try out the new story tomorrow. =]
show some damn respect boy you wouldnt say that at your mothers funeral now would you?
Dearly beloved, we're gathered here to mourn........... Oh crap sorry, I got carried way there. I really thought someone was dead.
no we really, genuinley are carry on please
rather have a dead online network for a day rather than a dead console for a lifetime eh?
"AmaziiiiiIIiing graaaaace, hooowww sweeEEEet thhEEEEeee soOOUuUUUnD"
it was a MUCH needed game back in april of last year... it still give it a kick with my cousins when they come by.
I only played multiplayer, which made it fun. It was most fun with 4 players.
Actually PS Store, you brought me a little grief in my early days as a PS3 owner. You kept giving me Lair trailers, no background loading, and no demos. You gave me no Back button and you often gave me some slow loading times and in some cases you timed out on me, but hey... I'm a stronger person because of it. You've improved as days and 1 year has past, but not good enough. Your replacement should be here by tomorrow, so I hope your desk is cleaned out...she's alot more efficient and organized than you ever were, she has a special surprise for me today, AND she's bringing a nice gift with her on the 17th. You ain't gotta go HOME but you gotta get the hell outta here. RIP Old PS Store.
And i'll love the new PS store You know why ! Well because it's got something to do with the PS3 Like anything to do with the PS3 it's all good The BEST Console out there right now for true and knowledgeable gamers the PS3 Whats not to love ? Ok i'll be honest There was one thing that sucked about the PS Store It was the japanese PS Store Couldn't read a damm thing on there(not that it hindered you in any way in downloading demo's) But thats it I'd still take this over Xbox dead any day Xbots = SUCKA'S
Bubbles dude Bubbles lol
You keep playing behind! I know you like the view.
Next is PSN... hell, that was born dead.
You Bought an Xbox Ha Ha Stick with your Faulty Xbox !! RROD Rule Ha Ha You can keep that overpriced Xbox live(even if it was free it would be overpriced) Ha Ha You Suck Ha Ha
LOL... Feeling sour. PS3 outsells 360 again. Same again next month and the month after that.... etc. You have to sit there crying and putting up with it. Quite funny.
Are xbots cloning now? Figures....they are all mindless bots.
It was functioned. But it was cheap looking, slow, and downgraded the system. Hopefully there will be even more content than announced like: MGS1 PSOne Classic GTA I & GTA II PSOne Classics
yay new PSN =D
But rather a rebirth of something we all have and will forever appreciate. Free online and now a great store interface to "whoo" those new onlookers to the wonderful world of Playstation 3.
I've bought a LOT of stuff from the old PS Store. I just hope that all of that information transfers over to the new PS Store without any glitches. That to me is the only foreseeable problem, and I hope to hell it doesn't happen.
I don't think I'll miss it - I didn't hate it or anything, but the new one looks well improved.
well said marceles...well said
Like the slow fat kid(sorry 7.1 I know this hits a personal note for you) trying to keep up with the group hopefully this will bring the CRAPSTATION (tm) store from 1990 to 2008. Maybe in another 10 revisions it will actually match Xbox Live Marketplace. Now just waiting for the fishheads to claim that $ony invented online stores and it will be superior to Jesus because of the cell and Brown-ray. Play behind.
The first time I went online with my PS3 I felt like I was online with my Dreamcast. And what's the deal with only having like a dozen demos?! *Looks at PS3 library* Oh yeah.
the x suck bill gates balls 3 LIVE service is sooooooooo OLD!! flippin 2005 bullshit
Nice retort. You really put things in perspective. Xbox live gets updated twice a year with new features. What has POSN done? Don't worry. Sony said HOME will be out soon. And they wouldn't lie to you. You'll be playing virtual barbie soon enough.
Dude what is ur problem stop being a fanboy and just be a game I love my X360 and my PS3 there all good consoles. And sony inproved on the layout of the sing store which is fantasic its store is alot better than the 360 with things that you click on fadeing in and out smoothly i love the market place layout but this is ten times better. You need to remember it took 5 years for XBOX live to get to were it is now it wasn't like how it is now on day one.
@ 8.Ok so yes the 360 gets updates twice a year. But we get updates every Month or so which gives us great updates also remember the PS3 has a Life line of 10 years just like the PS2 which it is now coming to its 10th-11th year and i hope this isn't true cause i love my xbox but its life line is like 5-6 years and its already coming to its 3 year now i think can't remmeber feels like i've had my 360 all my life thats how much i like it same goes for the PS3 only difference is that the PS3 with it Hard drive that is a PC Sata note book Hard Drive can be upgraded with a PC Hard drive i have a 400 GB hard drive in my PS3 was 250 but i upgraded it. which means theres so much more that can go on the PS3 hard drive which means biggger and better Updates.
snuffed out in its prime :( i never had problems finding anything on the store. the speed wasn't slow enough to make me advoid it. you were a good store, but its your time to move on and make room for the next version. you will be missed... maybe
" Never again will you press circle to go back" Who ever pressed circle? L1 and R1 is how you go back and forward. Anyway... How can you miss it when something greater is coming?
I'm used to when a menu pops up ontop of another menu pressing O to dismiss the top level menu. I donno, maybe I play more games with my PS3 than browse the web with it and that's why it's not natural to press L1 to get rid of the description/download page.
R.I.P. I never had a major problem with the PS store, I have 4 accounts that allow me to access different regions and have always found something to download. What I have purchased from the store has been excellent and Pixeljunk Monsters is still possibly the best value for money game I have ever played. I never really used Live so I never had anything to compare it with so for me it's done the job (sometimes a little late but hey =p) I do however embrace the change with open arms!
will multiple accounts now still work? As in will I be able to d/l stuff on my jap or us accounts. hell maybe I won't even have to, as I seem to remember reading something about the store getting new content at the same time over all regions. Anywho, looking forward to the new store, i was sold on it when they* showed the ability to stream trailers of available purchases. Game on people, game on.... *(by they I mean she)
I don't think content will be distributed around the world at the same time, I believe it said that content wiil not be region locked and I think that means that things like the next warhawk pack can be bought from the store no matter what country you bought warhawk from...I think.
I really didn't mind the old store but hey, I'm always open for change :)
My sentiments as well :)
... but RIP good ol' PS store version 1. I bought less than $100 through your store but you will be miss. Good bye L1 R1 navigation... so long accidentally pressing the circle button thinking you're suppose to bring me back to the previous page... adios not so fast interface.... now bring in my hot and fresh new one!
the psn store is much better, cleaner and looks more sleek and advanced compared to the over crouded Xshag LIVE
