Take a Look Inside the New PlayStation Store


Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by on Oct 17, 2012 // SVP, PlayStation Network

Last week we gave you a sneak peek of the completely redesigned PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3. Along with the re-imagined user interface, we added predictive search and improved filtering to make finding content easier and faster. The new store also offers more in-depth information about games, add-ons and apps, as well as movies and TV shows, letting you browse and discover new types of content effortlessly.

The redesigned PlayStation Store launches in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Brazil on October 23. In the meantime you can get a taste of what’s coming in this walkthrough video:

The new PlayStation Store for PS3 was designed from the ground up to enhance the entire user experience based on the feedback we received from you, our loyal fans.

Watch the video and tell us what you think!

Please note: This video was created using a near-final version of the new PlayStation Store. Some content, categories, or pricing may be different than the Store you’ll experience next week.

I was wondering if there will be a way I can change the way content is displayed while I’m browsing the new store, something similiar to the View Mode in the current store. I understand How utilizing the space for pictures may help some, but sometimes I like to scroll down a neat list to find what I’m looking for. I would very much appreciate it if this feature was included into the new store.

Also please don’t force us to use the vertical (or horizontal) keyboards, it takes so long to search for something I just want to be able to use the on screen keyboard as well as a physical one I can plug in. You don’t need to look like xbox live to compete with it. Just give us an option to bring up the regular keyboard.

is the vita gonna get this update? would really be a smart idea to completely change the look and feel across all platforms instead of just the ps3.

Finally experienced the new store and it sucks

Where are the tabs for new releases? New avatars? New themes?

The loading is horrendous. It stutters, the framerate isn’t stable. OMFG

Sorry this is slow and not user friendly at all. I like the old one better, it wasn’t as pretty but it sure did get the job done.

the old store was 100% better.

Here is some of my graphic design feed back, graphic designer to graphic designers. Once I get into the store Im greeted by a mundane, over simplified, monotonous web store. I’ve noticed you’ve moved the media together with that games, if not a level higher. From what i have been seeing as I wonder around the store I find the design is much to dark. There is a fade with words on it as the nav-bar and honestly it takes away from the color and luminosity of the design as a whole. However expanding the pictural ads out at the click of the right button was a nice change and i enjoyed that change quite a bit. Its much easier to find new things or see whats going on the network without needing to dig much at all. Overall I know what i have said wont change much. Even though its new Sony, its honestly mundane. Any kid with only 1 years experience in basic graphics design class could have made this design for you. Im just hoping your graphics design didn’t rip you off for this average design.

Also like others have stated above. It is slightly slow and laggy. Functionality is always more important then being fancy. At least everything I learned taking web design told me so. I hope you guys revert back to the old store

Also playstation plus banner is much much to big and I can hardly see one row of games in the free games section. Feels like you trying to make it impossible to read them
