I got the new store in Australia.

It is an absolute disgrace, loads slower, takes many more selections to find what you want.
Ease of use sacrificed to have huge advertising jammed in your face.
Forced to pass over 2 pages of advertising to get to the new games sections.

Didn't think Sony would be as shit as Microsoft and make their store just as bad but I guess I was wrong.

All I wanted to do was try the PSASBR beta...

- Add to cart
- View cart
- Checkout
- Confirm purchase
- Download
- Download in background

Fuck off.

All I want is a list of the new shit on the store, but now they've split it into five different categories, so I have to trawl each of them to see everything. You keep diving into new screens filled with rectangles that you forget which category you're in in the first place.

It looks nice, but is a UI disaster. I think they're hoping you catch yourself browsing through the mess and find something cool to buy, but then buying something is such a pain in the ass that you won't even bother.

Awful. Just awful.

Bad luck new store is much slower as it loads shit loads of images and advertisements.
Even has an initial load just to enter.

I *hate* the sound of this more than anything else. I can live with the extra steps if everything was fast and snappy but if it's slow as well... this is really depressing.

They might as well had put the Store into Home if speed wasn't their priority.

No, and it's even slower, with bigger rectangles so you can't view as many items on screen.

Disagree. Search is more annoying because you have to scroll through the list of letters and can't even use a USB keyboard.

DLC being listed on game pages is my favourite new feature. Otherwise, it seems like a turn for the worse. Especially if I can't even use my f'n Visa debit card on it anymore.

TurkishEmperor, the download list is the same as always but with a MUCH slower scrolling speed.

True that, I don't have a keyboard connected however.

DLC for a game should have always been in the game category, like the US store. At least some good came out of this.

The main thing they need to add is a "new this week" tab or something. All recent demos, trailers and DLC could go front and centre on the store front page.

Or does that make too much sense?

I think you've confused what I was saying there. I'm talking about how games, their DLC, their demos and media are all consolidated onto a single page, like Steam. It's a much more cohesive setup.

Dumb

anyone know if the new tech their using for the store (HTML5 is it?) will it be easier to change things around again, so it doesn't take 5 steps to download a demo?

will it be much easier to update stuff on the fly on their end?

Also, what type of Advertising?

Yeah, though that itself requires a number of button presses:

Triangle > Store > Games > Latest > PS3 Games

Though even then, that just results in another splash page with new games. If you want to look at the full list of games, you need to scroll right through two pages and select 'All Latest Games'.

It's a mess.

It's unlikely they're any more burdened than on a normal Wednesday morning.

It was easy to predict that it is going to be slow. What I did not expect were the huge ads pushed so deep into your retinas they're coming out the anus.

It's only available in Australia and New Zealand at the moment. I somehow doubt we're overloading their servers.

Well Im just guessing but due to the overall cosmetical and functional change, plus updating all regions with that... might contribute to slow loading times.

All ads are for things on the PS Store, so there's no external ads at all.

Then I don't see a problem with the ads. Will have to try the new interface out for myself though.
