The New PlayStation Store Now Available

It was announced earlier this morning that the newly refreshed and redesigned PlayStation Store is pushing out to all PlayStation 3 users in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico.

If you are apart of any of these four regions and you have yet to fire up your PS3 and check out the fresh design, I highly recommend you do so.

I, personally, find the new store to be very appealing, while others have a differing opinion.

Let me know what you think in the comments below, as well as any problems or concerns you might have regarding the new redesign.

“As you may have noticed, the new PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 is now available in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Mexico. Great new features like streaming trailers, improved search, new filter and sort options, as well as improved graphics, more game and video information, and easier access to add-ons are just some of the highlights.

With so much content available, it’s a great time to jump in and check it out. We value your feedback and will continue to make enhancements, so please let us know what you think in the comment section below.”

      Seems to me like a classier version of the PSVita’s store.

          Ripping DVDs that you own is now also ridiculously illegal, so just ignore the whole DMCA now.

    It looks very much like the new windows 8 with those tiles. Looks fresh and I like it.

    Looks great and all but reminds me of windows 8. It also looks like it would work better on the vita, as it works by the screens sliding. I could just imagine using the vita to scroll left and right and tapping on the icons.

    Was a bit disappointed that they remove the video previews of all the games, the screenshots are so low resolution and doesn’t tell much about the game. Instead of giving me a download button for a game preview (it waste time and HDD space), I want to see the preview stream in a new windows or like the old PSN a player pops up infront of the store. I want to see previews of games I might download instantly, not boot up a computer/exit store, boot up youtube app to watch a preview of the game, boot up store again.

    I hate the new store hard to find anything especially addons. Why show all the addons seperated why not leave them in folders like before.

    1. brownsensation’s avatar

      i agree and it’s ironic cause they said it was supposed to make addons easier to access

    it takes too long to start and to load the game icons.
    it doesn’t work remotely anymore(I now can’t buy ps3 games while watching a movie)
    and they still haven’t fixed a real problem: several games don’t appear for compatible consoles(mostly psp games not appearing on a vita or psp)

    HATE IT! might be ok if we all had TOUCH SCREENS, trying to be like WINDOWS8, LAGGY, hard to navigate, no option to change views, epic fail that we all have to get used to!

    IM SORRY BUT THIS NEWS SHOULD NOT BE ABOVE THE NEW PS VITA EXPLOIT. THE GAME IS STILL UP FOR DOWNLOADS AND PEOPLE CAN STILL GET IT. The exploit news should be above all news for a while

      The less noticeable, the better. Remember, the more it is plastered everywhere, the faster Sony will hurry with taking it down.

    I heard a lot of people complainign that it ran slower and was less responsive….I haven’t checked it yet but I am sure $sony will iron out the bugs and perforances issues in the coming weeks.
