New PlayStation Store - first screenshots

Postby Megatrons_Fury » 11 Oct 2012, 11:59

Very shiny nice, certainly looks a bit nicer than just BLUE everywhere.

Does kinda look like netflix meets windows phone, pretty sure after a month of using it i wont even notice. Maybe next up Sony can fix the speed of downloads, that would be so much more helpful.

Was there anything wrong with the current one?

All that does is remind me that I watched ill manors the other night.

So thanks for that. Gits.

It looks terrible. It reminds me a lot of the Xbox dashboard, which is, to be frank, disgusting. I'd much rather have the old style than this tripe... :(

Hmmm, no mention of the Vita on the 'Latest' sub menu.

So does that mean that the Vita will have it's own section ... or that there's just f**k all out for it.

Looks like a theme for XBMC, which is fine by me... anything that sorts out the current 'mess' of things cobbled together, I may miss the blue though.

I like it - I think it looks a lot better. Now, if it's easier to find stuff and it doesn't take three and a half weeks to load everything, I'll be muchly satisfied!

Nice way to show off the new look; making clear how over-priced digital titles can be.

Not so keep on the shameless aping of all things Microsoft - I always preferred the PlayStation Store because I thought it was easier to navigate. Also, the blue was nice.

Looks nice but that doesnt really help the main issue with the store, being that is rather hard to find what you want on it. The XBL store is generally very well set out and easy to find certain games/genres etc. The ps store however is a lot harder to navigate. Made even worse when you type to search for something and still cannot find it.

Change isn't always a good thing. I have no problem with the current store. Will just have to wait and see if this update is better.

Looks better. As for Vita I would imagine it'll have it's own tab but then again Vita has it's own store front anyway.

That looks sweet, far less kid-like than my xbox dashboard, take heed MS I don;t need bright colours to get excited.

Looks good, similarities with XBOX userface

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being rubbish, 10 being average, and 4 being brilliant, i give this 3 thumbs up.
