The new PSN Store is up and running

After a false start and a few glitches the new look PSN Store is up and running as of now. I had a quick flick through it earlier and nothing exploded so fingers crossed. The redesign is apparently the result of “feedback and insight from the community,” according to the product development manager for Sony Network Entertainment, Elliott Dumville.

if you dont live in the uk, which i'm guessing you dont since you have a pakistan flag and i watch iplayer for free on ps3. Then it's the BBC charging you to watch their shows.

The BBC iPlayer app is still free (In the UK anyway, don't know about elsewhere), however its looks as though you can purchase digital copies of the shows you want (doesn't mention rental anywhere), its no different to what other companies are doing.

They have every episode of Red Dwarf for sale :D

Every episode of red dwarf...? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

HarryMasonHerpderp3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

I'm in the UK and I'm not being charged for BBCiplayer

Iplayer have a free app don't they? Pretty sure everything on there is free and a lot is also HD.

Great to hear store is finally back up and running… I like it.

Re BBC i-Player it is down to the BBC if they are charging for shows, not Sony. Whilst I don’t believe they are currently charging I understand they intend too at some point and as a longstanding license payer I’m pretty disgusted at some of the content they want to charge for.

The new PSN store is now up in Ireland, and i must say that it looks awesome.
I probably have the worst internet connection on Earth at my house but the store is running perfectly.
Well done, Sony.
I don't have any problems with the store but Sony should change the prices of the avatars.
€1.19 for an Irish flag avatar is just ridiculous, especially since the flag belongs to me, not Sony.

GribbleGrunger3202d ago

Yeah, I agree, Avatars should be 50p at most.

braydox213202d ago

i here you living in the middle of queensland in the middle of no-where i get a crap connection its not so noticable in games like COD but fighting games work poorly.

abzdine3203d ago

i dont like that loading time in the beginning, they made PSS as an "externel" app and not built in the xmb like the previous store was.
Also the search function is really bad.

But globally there is some improvements, but they promised improvements every week so let's see.

medziarz3203d ago

Yes the made PSS into a separate webapp and it paves the way for the exact same store to be available via web browser, on Windows 8, iOS and Android

GribbleGrunger3202d ago

On the money. That's exactly why they've done it, and don't forget that Gaikai is browser based too.
