New PlayStation Store now live in Europe, Sony working on la

Postby acey » 17 Oct 2012, 15:07

And what are we supposed to do when the store not only doesn't let us download anything or recognise when you are a ps plus member but also changes back to the old store but with none of the new content? I am very angry right now as I was looking forward to playing the playstation allstars battle royale beta on my vita today but now I can't even find it on the store. Frankly this update was not necessary.

I firmly believe in the saying If it's not broke don't fix it

The PS+ section of the old store has been broken for weeks now, they put a quick fix on the other week but have never properly sorted the issue (Although I can see why they didn't with the new store so close).

Good job there isn't a CoD DLC today or else the store would try to off itself under all the "stress".

There's gonna be teething problems, there always is with things in great demand.

Every CoD, every FIFA, BF3, the new 360 Dash update, it happens.

It would have been nice if they could have fixed the problems and maybe delayed the release for a day or 2. Luckily I got everything I wanted downloaded yesterday but I can see this frustrating a few people. On the plus side it looks so much better than the previous PS Store

Did they not do a beta? there should have been an optional beta to get rid of these bugs. Its pretty poor that they forced a broken store on everyone.

I've still got the old bluey.

The blog guy Dutton says some of the stuff should be fixed by now.

I think Europe was the beta. Bit suspicious that America don't get it until next week.

I was on the new store earlier. It was slow then kicked me out saying I wasn't connected to the internet and when I clicked on it again it was the old one.
Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.

I haven't signed in today, but if they're having some launch issues, who cares really, it happens with almost every new game or product or software released now.

Theres no excuse for a company of Sonys size to release a broken product on to the world. I can understand if it was hacked after release or something but this is just not good enough. Sony have had a nightmare this gen. I havent heard of any problems with the new Xbox dashboard and even if there is Microsoft would fix it very quickly compared to Sonys efforts. I mean i coudn't imagine Xbox Live going down for weeks at a time like what happened with PSN.

Sony certainly aren't without their faults (They have made a few howlers this generation) but to use MS as an example of a company who are faultless is just crazy. MS have put out entire OS that have been flawed not to mention all the issues their console division have equally had this generation with hardware failures, LIVE downtime at Christmas and the Fifa hack they ignored for months and months.
