As you may already know, the PlayStation Store is getting a revamp in April, and will include a new interface design and better navigation. As a result, there will be no PlayStation Store updates for the next two weeks, while Sony work on improving the store. This puts the release date for the new store around middle of April. SCEE made the announcement today in an official press release, and released some photos of the new store (see below). The press release is also included below.
This April, PLAYSTATION Store, the online content store on PLAYSTATION Network, is getting a whole new look and feel – and it’s in response to feedback from the millions of PSN registrants in the PAL region.
The revamp comes in response to a survey last year which showed that many PLAYSTATION Store users wanted a better interface and easier navigation. The new design will deliver a hugely improved navigation system, much greater scope for categorisation and a dynamic new user interface.
Content will be suspended for two weeks while the improvements are carried out but users can look forward to a special update in mid-April.
There will be no weekly content updates between now and the re-launch, although users can still download content from the back catalogue, such as Warhawk and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
The PLAYSTATION Store revamp will not affect PLAYSTATION Network accounts or the virtual wallet system.
