Today I was on Home and thinking about the new movie I wanted to get form the Store, and I was chatting with my friend about it and I didn't want to leave, then it dawned on me. Why should I leave Home to shop on the PS store, why can't we have a PS store at the Mall where I can shop for items with my friends. Not like the current system where the items are a bunch of cards but rather a store where you walk in, see the items and can discuss them with your friends. For cloths they would be shown on a manikin, and for games and movies previews would be on TV's. Then you would select the item and hit Buy Now or Add to Cart. This would allow you to shop around, view the items, and talk about them with your friends or other people looking at the item.
A good example is the stores in GTA IV, where you walk in and see items on racks, you walk up and hit a button to preview them on your avatar. From there you either leave them, or hit a button to buy them. In Homes case hitting the buy button would take you to the cheakout screen, or you could add the item to your basket and shop somemore. Upon exiting the store you would be prompted to cheakout or just leave without buying anything.
I have posted in the Suggestions for Home thread, I only post it again in this new thread to get feedback from the community and perfect my idea.

I'm glad you brought that up. I've always thought about that, and I think it'd be cool and more convenient.
not only that but you could discuss games with friends or other Home users, lets say me and a buddy are thinking of gettin PAIN!, well we got the the mall and enter the PS Store there. From there we are brough to large room with several side rooms, one for PS3 games, PSP Games, demos and so on. We walk in, see a preview up on the TV, decide we like it, buy it and it starts downlaoding. And we never left Home.
