you gotta be kidding me.... sony stop trying to be like microsoft... go your own way don't conform to what is popular to the casual gamers... keep things that work and do away with things that don't work.. the ps store is now useless... it worked perfectly before, get real... it looks like Windows 8 ... u gotta be kidding me. stop.
You know, I don't like it either, but I don't hate it. I mean, I was fine with the old one. Didn't really bump into any problems and I really liked the look of it. Seemed like an iconic theme for the PlayStation store. I can't deny it looks sweet, but I never really wanted a change.
I did notice the glaring similarity to Windows 8.
I suppose, if you think you need to keep up with the Jones', then you must Sony.
Still, it is not completely un-navigable. Like any changes, it just takes time to get used to. I would not have minded a change more original though.
Yeah, did you notice that's the same thing they did with the YouTube app??
The store is perfectly fine, the only resemblance it has to Windows 8 are boxed images, if you consider that looking like Windows 8 you're clueless. That's like saying Android OS looks like iOS because it has icons.
To clear something up for the above poster, the Youtube app was made by Youtube, not Sony.
1) I'm an experienced computer enthusiast, therefore, I consider myself far from clueless. I know what Windows 8 looks like, and I feel that the new layout of the PlayStation Store looks similar to Windows 8, vis a vis the large, tiled visuals.
2) I know Sony didn't develop the YouTube app. I used the word "they" in a very general sense.
