The new PS3 Playstation store is a much needed improvement over the older store.
The Old Playstation Store:
The old store (pictured to the left) booted slowly, was unresponsive, had tiny print and was almost unusable. It relied on a ‘mouse’ like interface with a pointer that needed to be moved around the screen with the PS3 controller’s analogue stick. It was very difficult to use and imprecise.
The New Playstation Store:
- The new store boots up faster
- Thankfully, the mouse-pointer interface is gone
- The main menu now presents a grouped items column on the left
- Selecting an item group brings up a much easier to read sub-menu (see the “New Releases” submenu below).
- The submenu has a navigable list of possible selections on the right
- Selection details show up in a big, easier to read, panel on the left.
- Everything is faster and crisper (more pics on joystiq here).
