PSN Store's New Interface

[ Edited ]

So, the interface isn't as "new," however, I let it be due to hope it'd get better. Don't get me wrong, I love the new interface. It's sleek, and serve the purpose of advertising new content.

But

- I find it much harder to scroll through games and find my specific title.


 + kudos on the faster search option

- the faster search option isn't as fast as me using the usual typing interface

+ Once inside a games "profile" let's call it, you can find all videos, add-ons, extras, related content, etc,

 

- I cannot simply look up their add-ons without anything else in the way. I miss the separate option to look up a game's list of add-ons and see which ones are newer without a limit.


Not even addressing the fact that it is sometimes slower than before, I'd like to see some of these things changed.

I like the interface, there are too many confirmations when buying something at the checkout. I liked the old search function better - simply typing in the name of the game and find that it's still slow and laggy but faster than when the update was first implemented.

I like the interface, I like the search function, I like the whole look actually, I do wish it ran a bit faster though.

I wish it wasn't it's own little "App".

 

The old PS Store loaded up instantly when you chose the PS Store icon.

 

And when you exited, popped you right back to the XMB.

 

Now you have to wait for that loading thing. And then choose to "Quit" the PS Store, causing it to reload the XMB.

The old store was so much better... but there is no point complaining about the UI anymore lol

If the PS4 wasn't coming out this holiday season I'm sure the store woulda stayed the same for a little bit longer...

I love the look, but it is very sluggish.

 

I don't like the search function, as I can type each letter individually using the onscreen keyboard many times faster than the vertical list of letters allows.  It has a very restricted feel to it.

 

I also don't like how it takes 45 seconds, after selecting the app, before it opens and returns control to me.

I've noticed if you select ''Require Password at checkout'' you don't have to go through 2-3 confirmation pages.
