Its bad. Seriously bad. I don't mind them changing the layout however searching for sh** is absolutely horrendous. I'm trying to find Add-Ons for a game of mine. but instead of being like it used to be-
PS3 Add-ons - Select Alphabet Zone - Select game title - View all that game's addons
PS3 Add-ons - Select category - have fun searching through the thousands of add-ons that fit that category from the thousands of games that have them.
Its dumb as hell. Then there is no resize option so everything is big as all hell. It takes way longer than needed just to scroll through them all. If a game has 86 Add-ons, have fun reading the big **bleep** words and titles that take up a third of the screen as you slowly scroll down all 86 just to see what they are.
New PSN is terrible absolutely terrible
Killing off the very specific and organized searching options and replaced it with a few categories to make a giant clusterfu** to fit most of them is completely stupid. I swear one of the categories has over 1000 entries in it. God knows how many games are mixed in that. Its absurd to the worst degree.
I can't find Zen Pinball at all. i have to manually search for it. Same for Scott Pilgrim the game. so that's not fun either. It took 20 minutes looking through ALL the PSN categories only to find nothing.
I don't mind if they want to change the look but killing off the very well organized searching abilities and text resizing has made looking through this crap a real pain in the **bleep**. - -
This thread should be a petition to get the change reversed.
Oh and the new PSN is much slower too
Just bought a ps3 and the store though a little slow is decent. The only major problem with the store is that you can't view already downloaded, can't download multiple items from your purchase list, and sometimes won't get the download all which makes it a pain to download some items, and there is still no download after shutdown, This however was always the case so don't think this layout is a game changer either way.
um... dude..... they didnt' change the downloads section at least..... it's still there. How the hell can you miss it? You log onto the store, the MAIN MENU says Welcome, then Games, Movies, TV Shows, Apps, VIEW DOWNLOADS, Redeem Codes.......
I see the list but that's not what I mean. If you happen to have an iphone you can see what I am talking about. They have a list of your purchase history, like psn but they let you know which items are already installed. With psn the download list is not a previous downloaded list its a purchase history.
I am not a fan of being able to search things by game without typing the name of the game in first. it takes so much longer than it should with the keyboard being like a game of tetris with no complete lines.
You either have to search the name of what you're looking for OR browse by looking through hundreds of other content (Rock Band) and hoping to find it.
I can't believe this thread has lasted for so long and it seems people really do feel the same way. Yes we have the two trolls that repond to every post here and they call themselves the majority lol
I'm not asking for a return to the old store, just more accessibility. I'm trying to look for game add-ons and guess what? No alphebetical listing. Yes you can sort by A-Z, but only by going into "levels, weapons," etc categories. And what about PS3 games? Am I supposed to look for what I want by going through all 700 different games instead of just going to the M-N category? Come on, Sony, it's simple. If I can't find what I want, I can't buy it, you miss out on my money.
Just do what I did the other night..... spend an hour (or more) using the "new" search "typing" in the name of every game you own so you can check each game's individual page and see if there's any new add-ons (instead of using the old, simple, SINGLE list of games sorted A-Z in like 30 minutes or less)...... it's SOOOO much better this way....
/sarcasm off >.<
*shoots the idiot that thought this up*
you could do what im about to do, stop using pss and go to xbox or better yet, go to steam. sony does not care about its customers, we should have learned this when the network was hacked and they never told us anything. Sony you are just like google, who took over youtuve and basicly raped it. you raped your own store and now no one wants to use it.
