Love the PS3 but the store sucks.

The new updated store is horrible. I have supported the PS3 for many years now and find it an amazing console. Get many hours of joy using it but the newly updated store is just plain horrible. 

 

Please please please either bring back the old design or at least make the new store not clunky.

You'll get used to it.

 

I love it

I agree as well...the new interface is more suitable for the console and esthetically pleasing.

What I don't like about the new store is that you can't search anymore.

 

You can enter a set number of words in the 'search' area following what letters they restrict you to.

 

There are also many items that don't show up, or only show up by searching the middle, last, etc... name of the game.  If they let you even use/enter the word.

 

There are games with add-ons I want to buy and I can't find the games anymore, the lack of a 'search by game' section in the Add-ons department is my biggest dissapointment, I use to browse that section all the time, it was my favourite part of the store.  Now with the new categories browsing is just confusing/annoying.

 

But if those things are ever fixed I'll be sold on the new store.

Its called predictive text... something that was sorely lacking from the older store. At least this time you get RELEVANT results. For me the older search engine was broken and i NEVER got the results i was looking for.

i like the new store, it feels like a more exotic version of the XBL marketplace, but its really slow and laggy for me, im sure more updates will come soon to improve performance and speed of the store. At first i thought i wanted the old version back, but this one is actually nicer in my opinion. Again, just need some performance updates

I know what predictive text is.

 

I wouldn't mind that they added it, but they took away the option to search normally.

 

Before I could find any game, add-on etc.. almost instantly.

 

Now I can't find half the games I own even if I'm in there 10-15 minutes.

 

So yeah predictive or not I'd like a real search enter whatever letters you want, option.
