Maybe I am too negative, but the new store design is aweful. I wanted to hear what others had to say. To me it is extremely slow. I absoultely hate the filters. It seems to lock up on me often. Its like they put more focus on the glitz, but totally hosed the functionality.

Being so used to the old style, I'm not very positive either. I still wish there was an option to let you view it as the old style. Seems more disorganized to me.

I honestly hate it. Messed around with it yesterday and it's laggy as hell.

I though my internet was messed up because it took forever to load screens.

Guess I'm not the only one with problems.

I'm not crazy about it either. Bringing up the new stuff brings up EVERYTHING NEW, all at once; dlc, avatars, themes, games, etc. I liked the old way where I could look at each category separately, or not at all.
(I know you can set a filter, but you have to do that every time)

Also, it seems like it takes three or 4 circle presses to exit the store as opposed to just one or two.
The searching is slower. I miss the keyboard option instead of just scrolling through the wall of letters.

I hate how checkout (of a single free game) takes about three/four times as long now.

It fucking sucks. Slow as shit, confusing, and they got rid of the keyboard for search and now you have to do 90s arcade bullshit for a simple search. Fuck you Sony.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Don't have anything good to say about the new redesign at all. Only hiphopgamer liked it, and that's a negative thing too.

I like it. It takes a couple (only a couple) extra seconds to load, but it looks better. A quick press of the Triangle button and I can pull up the menu. And honestly, the games deserve this better presentation.

i think it's much better, though that doesn't say a lot considering what we had before.

I like it. Just imagine if we went from what it is now to the older version (backwards evolution). People would be just as unhappy if not worse. It's hard to accept such extreme change when your used to using the same thing for years ya know

I like it, It took me a few days to get used to it, but I'm now able to navigate and find what I'm looking for without much hassle. I like how when you click on a game all of the add ons and stuff are right there on the same page. I have to agree on the checkout process being very tedious though, and I hope they make the DL list sortable soon.

Don't care for it - it's slower than the old version, and I don't need fancy presentation over speed. Also, I had the store freeze my PS3 for the first time ever while redeeming a one month PS+ code. I had to go into my account info to verify the code redeemed properly.

Then again, I also still use classic theme/mode in Windows.

It looks better but getting in and out of the store is slower. The same can be said for the xbox 360's tiles user interface. The new store design makes advertisements and the stuff sony wants you to see stand out more but it takes more button presses to buy or get to the content "you" want to see.

I hate it as well. Not so much for the presentation, but the horrible organization. Who sorts add-ons by type, but not by game? Am I going to see a cute little character or an awesome stat booster that will make me go buy a game? I also have at least 1 game that says I don't own it anymore. Walking Dead episodes 1 and 2 were free for plus at one time, but 2 no longer says purchased.

I cant agree more with the add-ons. I really do not want to sort through 100 rockband add-ons to get to the one download I want. The same thing happened to me with LBP2. It now says I do not own. Who do you even e-mail to let them know there is a problem?

I don't know... I kinda like the new look, but the navigation of it is still new and cumbersome. I don't know what was wrong with the old store...

I do like how when I view a game it shows all the related DLC, avatars, etc., that is a nice feature... but the checkout process sucks.

And now it shows that some of what I've bought is bought and the others are not bought... confusing.

what organization did the previous store have? you had random categories placed within other lists. people got used to it out of memorization, not because of any sort of navigational sense.

I really wish they would have just kept it simplistic. Now I have to see Ads for stupid shit and can never find anything. I think they are going to lose sales with this as no one can find anything.

You didn't need to fire up a separate app that took a minute+ to load. It was simple, this one is not. I don't want to buy anything out of this store because I can't find anything. Everything is blown up to emphasize things, but they take away a good deal of functionality doing that.

the serach function is shit too now youd think when you select U the first game on there would be uncharted but no i had to fucking spell out uncharted 3 by selecting each damn letter from the letter line and then once i got into the uncharted 3 stuff they didnt have it separated so i had to look through 333 damn items to find the map packs to redownload them.

i can see people liking how it looked but id give up all the pretty new bells and whistles to be able to find what i want in less than 10 to 15 minutes. you shouldnt have to go through so many damn hoops to get your stuff.

i dont think that the ps3 store needed to be redesigned. it was perfectly fine(excluding the crappy search and the download list). the vita however is a different story. that store is utter trash and really needs a redesigned.

You could have typed in Map Pack and just scrolled down to Uncharted 3. I agree though there should be a sort option for the add ons, especially with a game like UC3 which has 333 items available.

Hate it. Slow to start up when all I want to do is look at the PSN+ tab for less time than it takes to boot up. And god forbid you want that free game, because you will need to confirm the confirmation for confirming that confirm. JFC, how many times will it ask you to accept your free game?!

God awful.
