This morning, SCEA announced that the PLAYSTATION Store will be revamped with a new look in mid-April.
The new interface allows customers to browse through eight primary categories, rather than four, making it easier to locate games, demos, game add-ons and other content. It also enables us to put up to twice as many items per page, significantly cutting down the time it takes to browse through content.
Customers of the store will be able to access, browse, shop and download content as usual prior to the store?s re-opening. Regularly scheduled content updates will resume with the Store?s re-opening, at which time additional games and game-related items will be added, including the downloadable version of the highly-anticipated exclusive PS3 title Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
When the PLAYSTATION Store is set to re-open with the new interface, PS3 users will be prompted to download a firmware update which will enable entry to the new store.
