New PLAYSTATION Store interface coming in mid-April

Susan Panico's Avatar + Posted by Susan Panico on Mar 31, 2008 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Network

This morning, SCEA announced that the PLAYSTATION Store will be revamped with a new look in mid-April. We’ve heard your calls for a more fluid Store interface, and we think you’ll be pleased with the results.

As some of the most passionate and knowledgeable PLAYSTATION 3 fans out there, here’s some additional information on the revamped PLAYSTATION Store.

The New PlayStation Store

As you can see in the above screenshot, the new interface allows customers to browse through eight primary categories, rather than four, making it easier to locate games, demos, game add-ons and other content. It also enables us to put up to twice as many items per page, significantly cutting down the time it takes to browse through content.

Customers will be able to access, browse, shop and download content as usual prior to the store’s re-opening. However, no additional downloadable content will be posted prior to then, including this Thursday, April 3rd, and next Thursday, April 10th. Regularly scheduled content updates will resume with the Store’s re-opening, at which time additional games and game-related items will be added, including the downloadable version of the highly-anticipated exclusive PS3 title Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

When the PLAYSTATION Store is set to re-open with the new interface, PS3 users will be prompted to download a firmware update which will enable entry to the new store.

We’ll continue to update readers of the PlayStation.Blog on the status of the PLAYSTATION Store upgrade – including a video walkthrough – in the coming days.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF A RE-RELEASE OF THE PS3 WITH A LARGER HARDDRIVE IS FACT OR RUMOR. IF NOT A RUMOR, WHEN IS THIS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN?

Dear Sony, How about knocking off the entire $.99 fraction of a dollar thing now. Come on…your not fooling any one. And it is REALLY annoying to have eight cents in my account. I mean You make us charge accounts in who dollar amounts. Why not just stop the marketing BS and let us pay that extra penny…That or you can send me a check for the eight cents in my account right now? I would be happy to hang that on my wall.

Will there be added content on the playstation store?
I don’t see why there are no music, music videos, television show’s or HD movies and content available for download after nearly 18 months out of the gate. You guys own Sony BMG and Sony pictures which owns a lot of other studios and affiliates. It’s sad that 360 which owns no studios has more of this type of content.

Susan, try not to be too annoyed by the critical questions asked you by an immature and amateurish gaming press and by childish posts on this blog.
Sony has done a terrific job. I own all 3 systems and my PS3 gets used everyday for games, DVD and Blu-Ray. The Playstation Network is light years beyond Xbox Live. It’s sophisticated, slick, mature and did I mention free? Thank you for making a console and network that adults appreciate and enjoy.
