Sony Launching New PS Store on Web and Mobile This Month

558 posts in this topic

I don’t give a shit about anything except the Wishlist. They only time I use the store is to check if any games I want are on sale, now I have to do this manually for each game for every new sale. Would love to know wtf was going through Sony’s head when they decided to get rid of this simple feature.

Webstore itself.  In New Zealand myself, cause I went to use the usual link I have, but it bought me to the new one.

 

This is what I see anyway: https://store.playstation.com/en-nz/latest

 

Not sure if it'll update for you guys though, on if it'll show you the white store page, or the older blue store page.

Weird no it's showing an error for NA as well. 

 

Maybe they accidentally put it up for you, or maybe it's in the middle of the transition and not fully done yet, or maybe it's a government thing that they had to comply with? 

 

The rest of us will find out shortly how it looks and works, and if what you see is kind of a beta version accidentally put up

 

Thanks for trying and the info!

Ugh, I just went to look at last dlc purchase for ps3 before the changes tomorrow and saw the store has already changed over. Thanks Sony.
 

Also, I’m talking about the Australian store and I’m using mobile site

Could you post screenshots? I'm still seeing the old layout, both for my local store and when visiting yours.

I hope this works, but a link to the screenshot I took of the site.  It's not the best, since I use a laptop, so smaller screen and all that: https://photos.app.goo.gl/SScvRoeDY6pAqiHKA

 

Only one I have, but it was of the main page where the new releases and upcoming games are.

I see new item in sub-menu when you click your profile - instead of downloads list and purchased content list, there is Games library with link to https://library.playstation.com/ . Looks like it replaces old one, and there is no ps3 or ps vita content on new list like they announced :(

I used it a bit through Australian vpn and it's horrible. It doesn't even let you force a desktop version on tablet. It just kinda breaks(Firefox for Android).

It's so ugly, empty and "simplistic". I hate this type of design.

Yup, that's pretty much what I've been getting over here in New Zealand, where the store link would redirect to, to that new look it has... which I just don't like.  I mean, I'll probably get used to it eventually, but right now as it stands, yeah, it just does not look good.  I prefer the old design.

Looks terrible from what I've seen so far and it's missing many basic features which is a shame because the current web store is amazing and practically everything I purchased this gen was through the website which is so easy to browse and buy stuff on and blows away both Microsoft and Nintendo's web offering by a mile, This just looks like a step back.

It should be easy enough to make an overlay for the PS5 web store that adds basic functionality back in (e.g., names of games in text under the tiles, maybe even a wishlist). Once the new store goes live in Canada, I'll have a look at it. Kind of ridiculous that Sony keeps changing things without actually improving them though (first the trophy level formula and now this).

Could this be why I’m not able to sign into the ps store on mobile and desktop? Even when I try using the id.sonyentertainmentnetwork.comwebsite, it just doesn’t give me access even to just sign in

I think i've used PSDLE for the last time, by adding all columns instead of just the ones i considered "essential". So long and thanks for all the fish👍will continue to use it as a reference for my PS3/Vita download lists (will probably become a little complicated when/if i renew Plus next year and the games move to the top of the list)

Good call. Just exported a CSV of my complete library for future-proofing purposes.

Agreed. Improved UI would be welcoming, but removing the wishlist turns this into a bad news. I really do not understand what is the upside of this for SONY. Maybe they want to "force" us to check the entire sales to try to sell more items, since if many of us only check the wishlist. Still, really boring.

That is one ugly design and they should fire the people who did this.

+ The library doesn’t even work properly. When I click on my played games, it only shows like 10 games when I played many more.

Design itself isn't really a problem.

  • No game titles under the thumbnail. It's a game tile with a price
  • No DLC on the game page
  • Nothing differentiates DLC and Games in the search results
  • No filters of any kind. If you searched for "Resident Evil" you'll just get a huge pile of everything resident evil related.
  • No file sizes in game page
  • No screenshots or trailers on game page
  • No wishlist of any kind.

Like, the new store doesn't add anything in terms of usability and just substracts the existing features.

Are they idiots or what

Talking about the new Library site, i'm seeing 20-30 themes stuck in the queue, after i mass-redownloaded all of them from my account(s).

You can’t even arrange the order in how it’s presented to you. Ie new to old, cheapest to expensive, dlc. You just have to look through the whole thing to find something you might be looking for

They're probably tossing it to ensure that people have removed PS Vita, PS3, Themes, Avatars, etc from their list. They will be making a new wishlist. Hopefully one that doesn't cap out at 98 items...

It's moments like these I wonder what Sony has been doing for the past couple of years.

 

The individual game pages are the best design presented but that's not saying much.  

 

I just hope there's much more transparency in what Season Passes include.

 

Or just you know, don't try to scam people. That works too.

Much has already been said about this and my words won't bring anything new to the table, but I thought it's good to share my opinion and experience on this.

 

I don't own a vita, only a PS3 and a PSP, so I can't say anything about the Vita Store itself. For everything related to PSP, this new change in PS Store over mobile/webstore just makes me go full "non-legal methods of obtaining games", it's just too much hassle to go through a bunch of loopholes to buy overpriced digital PSP games when getting them free "elsewhere" is much easier and faster. That's some money Sony will never be seeing anymore. I will still buy a physical copy of a game I really for PSP for collection purposes, but I really doubt Sony gets money from that anyway.

 

On PS3 side, I kinda comfortable but still annoyed at this change. I'm wrapping up my to-buy list on PS3 regarding digital goods, mainly some DLCs and PS1 & PS2 Classics left and most of those either didn't have a sale in the last 3 years or never were in sale to begin with, after the change I'm even less rushed to buy them. Whenever I need to buy something on the PS3 from now on I will go straight to the Game/DLC as possible and also check out as fast as I can since there's always the risk of application itself crashing. Then I can download it from account management on XMB whenever I feel like, saves me some headache.

 

That said, I'm really sad for Vita&PS3 users who still have a big list of games to buy for those consoles because these PS Store applications were clearly never redesigned to work with efficiency after they were updated over the years. I know the frustration of navigating one of these stores and also know of particular horror stories of players having to format their entire console after the PS Store crashed on their system.

 

Finally, if anyone is interested, I just bought PS Plus free games for October and it prompted me to go my download list & download queue...which I bookmarked the link, since when previously trying to find those only led me to the new library. I don't know if I will be able to access that link in the future when the new PS Store is fully online on web/mobile fronts, but for now I'm able to do that just fine and it helps a bit.

 

P.S: So many good posts on this thread that I used my 25 likes quota today all here.

Thanks Sony.  😒

 

But my local stores still have a lot of used PS3 games so I will buy physical. There weren't any sales in long times so it's not like I would buy digital anyway.
