A new look for the PSN Store

A new look for the PSN Store

Sony announced today that the much awaited rewrite of the Playstation Store would be online with a few weeks. Finally it's an interface designed for consoles, and not just a web site. Images inside.

Looks a lot like the Live marketplace, and that's not a compliment. At least not if it's as slow. Either way, an improvement over the previous mess.

i saw this yesterday (maybe day before) so less chance its an april fools. either way it looks better then it currently does. i just hope it isnt as button press heavy as the 360. getting from dashboard to a demo on the 360 can be a right pain in the ass.

glad to hear its XMB based and not web browser based. that thing was SLOW

if this isnt an april fools (which i dont think it is) then i wonder if the 'syde have one planned. hopefully its less lame then gamespots full homepage of BS.

Looks good to me, a lot better than the current store. I hope it's not an april fool. Saw it already on other sites yesterday, so the chances are little ^^
Good thing it's no longer a website. I read somewhere it will come with the open Beta of HOME. Is that allready stated by Sony, or just a rumour?

Looks nice. Anything is better than the browser based one they have now.

looking nice. I like how they designed it to resemble the Sing Store layout. I always thought it looked rather slick.

It looks nice enough, I'm getting kinda sick of this trendy obsession with having 2D images "reflect" though, its the new "swirly logo" phenomenon.

Buttons need some sort graphical effect done on them, they look really plain (would of worked if this was all white instead of blue).

Best April Fools

Yeah, I was thinking that myself.

Looks neat and tidy, I like the logos for the different genres.
