    What's your impression on the new PSN store?

    EU users has gotten a store makeover. How well a job did they do? Do you like it?

    I personally think, that while it's a bit slower, it's much sleeker and easier to browse through, especially since you have all of the DLC, trials and avatars/themes on one page.

    I'm a member of PS+ and it is now treating me as I'm not a member of PS+, though it still shows the PS+ logo on the side of my profile bar. Weird, I hope they fix it.

    I haven't experienced it just yet, but I'll definitely check it out later. Slower? That sucks. Not recognizing you as a + member will hopefully be fixed like you said. I definitely like the idea of all the DLC for a game all in one place though.

    It's not much slower. It takes a few seconds extra to boot up, and it can not browse through as quickly as before, but it is not much at all. I hope they fix it soon, since I JUST bought a new year of PS+.

    When I tried to open the PSN Store it said, I had to download an update to be used. And then it opened I got a new interface to look at.

    My store keeps reverting back to the old design. It's so annoying. Apart from that it looks great, but really slow. I also don't like having to go at least five different pages just to download something. That really sucks.
    Thanks to xEl Cidx for my awesome Avy and Sig.

    I just tried to download a Demo and you're right... it takes too many screens. In the old one I think you needed to find the game, then press download, then download again.

    In this store, you need to find the game --> press add to cart --> proceed to checkout --> Checkout --> Confirm Purchase --> Then the download button next to the demo bar.

    The search function is weird because it makes you start from A every time you go to enter a new word, at least the search actually comes up with results that your looking for more easily as its categorized by game then that has subsections for trailers/DLC instead of showting everything related to the search on one list, i agree it doesnt work as fast though the load times seem to be about 40-50% slower on most things.

    One of my friends now cant buy anything of the store though he was going to get the borderlands 2 DLC but it wont let him purchase anything didnt really know what to say to help him with that though.

    I hope it allows DLC to come out on its actual release date more often though instead of waiting for store updates differing from EU/US and so on though.

    When I visited the store, there was an automatic notification which says that I need to update the software. I think only EU regions has this at the moment as my US and Asia accounts still has the same design of the PS store.

    This is interesting, although I'd hate the fact it would take twice as long to do the same thing you were going to do.
