Sony's newly revamped marketplace now available.

After a delay from its October 23 release date, Sony has gone live with the new PlayStation Store in North America.

To access it, simply turn on your PlayStation 3, select the PlayStation Store icon under PlayStation Network, and you will be prompted to download the new store.

    I don’t see anything on Vita for now

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      PS Vita is not getting the update.

  • PrinceHeir

    great!

    will check it out :D

  • MrKappa

    The new store is complete ass. It is slow, clunky and missing a lot of search and filter options. I wish they let you choose which version to use because this new one is inferior.

    • vertical09

      Seriously =P They should make it so you can toggle between stores, because this new store is just….ugh >_>

      “I wish they let you choose which version to use” hahahahahahaha…NEVER BABY!! And yes, this is slow but the new design is the best of the market

  • hush404

    Neat, will check it out ltr.

  • LordKaiser

    Hard to Navigate because everything is either A-Z or Z-A , the old category of letters was better organized. Also I notice how in genres RPGs are so blatantly cut out. The store seems to be Call of Duty friendly.

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      COD friendly that makes no sense.

      • LordKaiser

        Of course it does! Try to find addons by map packs etc. It’s very shooter friendly.

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          Oh I thought you were talking about you couldn’t find any RPG’s besides Shooters.

          Of course, CoD is the best selling game of all times, what do you want?

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        It means if you want DLC for CoD or Assassins Creed you’re fine, but if you want something else you have to put in extra effort.

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    The new store is fucking awesome.

  • vertical09

    I miss the old store already. 
    This one’s so clustered with stuff that I can barely find what i’m actually lookimg for =P

    Not to mention it froze my PS3 twice while navigating >_>

    Oh, thank you, Sony! Thank you so much for doing something no one needs you to. All we need is just a way to sort out the contents of our Download List, but you decided to go an extra mile just to completely ignored that and give us this slow, clunky, and ultimately messy new PlayStation Store. Really, I truly appreciate how you designed it to be so nausea-inducing. Oh, and the way it tugs at my patience when I try to find the right content but unable to is just simply adorable. It really helps that store seems to run at 15fps. It simply calmed my mind right off in one go. So, once again, thank you so much for fixing what isn’t broken, and made it broken from head to toe.

      You are so closed mind!! this is slow but the new design is the best of the market, i love the inovation

      • Bloodios

        Best of the market, according to you… sure…

        You know what though, I simply express how I feel about the new design. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, which happen to differ from person to person, so what gives you right to judge me just because my opinions doesn’t flow on the same current as yours? So you love it, good, that’s your goat, I won’t touch it, so don’t touch mine.

        I would gladly listen to a detailed break down as to why you love the new design, as those are the kinds of things that do interest me, but don’t insult me.

          Well said!

          The following is a message for everyone in general –

          Let’s stop trying to start post wars. If you don’t agree, discuss it like mature adults. Just because you don’t agree on something, or you don’t both like something, that doesn’t mean you become “enemies” or something silly like that. In other words, be respectful to each other.

          Thank you!

    My only gripe so far is the initial load time it takes to get into the store. It’s now an application like netflix, youtube, etc (it even shows up under your PSN ID when in use) so I guess it takes the system a little longer now to allocate the proper resources into memory.

    Other than that, I personally think it’s a lot more organized (the game pages are a big plus for me) and I personally have little trouble navigating the store, especially if you use the bumpers and triangle button.

  • Bloodios

    I’m not sure why they didn’t add “Platform” as one of the filter option for the “Videos” section… I don’t want to scroll through a sea of videos just to search for some trailers either for the PSP or the Vita. And I’m still ticked off that there is so little improvements to the Download List (which is only limited to the one integrated in the Store, the one inside Transaction Management is still as crappy as it was before.) Sure, making it easier to see might be is a good thing, but come on, what it desperately needs is a filter option…

    I’m not sure when the Japanese version will be up but I guess Sony is simply using Europe and North America as lab rats for testing before releasing the stable, high quality final result for Japanese folks to enjoy…

       If they decide to remove all categories on Japanese version it’s going to be a hell to find content over there… I seriously hope they don’t remove the list for new content they have there as well.

    Any idea if they’ll update the PS Store on Vita? I know PS Plus will be added on Vita sometime this month. Will Sony update the Vita store with the addition of PS Plus?

    • Bloodios

      I wonder about that too… as much as I hate it, the design seems like it was built for the Vita so I do find it puzzling as to why it isn’t the first platform to get the update… I do imagine it’ll be updated eventually though.

  • Bobo Fango

    Way better than the old psn

    Way better than the old psn

    The other genres exept platformers where now just added. Now they must add the old category of letters that are better than A-Z & Z-A. The lag is still there, It opens slower than the old store.
