Which means they are literally just referencing a database that still exists and had to go out of the way to exclude all the other PS3 and Vita games.

They're referencing the same database as before. The old Chihiro API can also find the newly released (and pre-orders) of the new store. Only the front-end has changed. And not for the better.

 

Also I found the DLCs section under "Collections" - "Extras" (no idea what the English name is), but it's the download icon used in the old shop.

The page initially shows 8 games (FIFA, NBA, Fortnite, GTA online, COD MW, Destiny 2, Madden, and Fall Guys), with a button to "Show more" (just 4 more games: Rocket League, Apex Legends, PES, and Rainbow Six Siege).

 

Followed by a screen filling banner with an image of some game (Nioh 2 I suspect) and a search bar (white border + magnify glass) with the text beneath it (beneath the banner, not the search bar) that says (roughly translated) "Can't find what you're seeking? Try searching for a title".

The thing is, that search bar? It's an image. Doesn't work, can't be clicked...

Is anyone else currently unable to get anything to load on mobile or the PS4 console Store? I only managed to search two games on PS4 before they just stopped loading completely, and the Store on my phone refuses to load at all. 

 

Great freaking job Sony. 😒

 

Edit: Thank you @SnowxSakura for the links, seems to be the only way I can fully access the Store ATM.

PSPrices has data for a new promo, so at least for now them and similar sites are still able to get what they need. Problem is for how long.

 

Anyway they should have to let something compatible working as the PS3 and Vita stores were not updated on the consoles and they would not be able to get any data otherwise.

 

But we can assume that in the near future the PS3 and Vita stores will be completely axed. It's what the moron in chief wants anyway. Force people to buy PS5 as we have a bigger margin there. Just numbers...

 

No, sorry, for the gamers...

Glad it's not just me who thinks the new store is an abomination.

 

I'm assuming (hoping) that the update isn't complete and that wishlists are coming back in some way. If not... whew, boy.

I cannot access other region's PSN store.

It keeps redirect me to my region's PSN store.

Edit: I just decided to click on the "Add-ons" tab to see what, if anything, may have been new. Turns out you can't even see anything more than the twelve recommended games they have listed and that's it. You have to manually search your game and potentially know the name of the add-ons specifically in order for them to even show up. Unbelievable.

This is what actually bugged me the most. Like I checked the old store on a daily basis and always went to the 'DLC' section to see what's new, just in case I missed anything like e.g. a new Soul Calibur character. What. The. Hell. Did Sony think?!

Fun fact: PSDLE recognizes PS5 content when it generates the list from the old Web Store. It's labeled as "PS4" but all the other info is there.

 

EDIT: i forgot to say, the PS5 content normally appears in the old Download List. No platform is associated to it though.

It's very noticeable when you access the revamped website that is just showcase of future games, it's like a retail store, you see boxes and click Buy it, all the previous functionality has gone, wishlists, etc. I can't see a point to access this new website. With psprices and youtube to know about the games is enough. Pointless website.

Edit: for upcoming titles you can access PS discord.

This is the 1st thread I see here where 99% of the people have the same opinion and no fight is happening.

 

 

 

Well, of course, we aren't Reddit, GameFAQs or any local gaming news website where you can be called "delusional" or "whiner" for not liking the new Store.

Are they done updating the Web Store?

If so, this was a terrible decision on their part. I'm with everyone else here.

 

Why isn't the DLC listed alongside the main games page?
Why did they take the preview videos/images out?

Why is the Deals section a mess?

Why is the U.I. such a convoluted design? 

Why is there no Dark Mode for the eyes?

I have gone and used the PS4 Store via the console. Unlike the browser Store I can actually navigate and find the shit I want to search for. The old Store was still far superior.

 

What a joke. I said everything I had to say about the new store at this point. Hopefully Sony will crash and burn just like what happened with the launch of the PS3 back in 2006.

Good work. Far better than the store atrocity.

 

Sony should of hired you to be their web developer.

Now the webstore just sucks, there's no way to filter or sort games anymore, and the ps4 store is even worse (as usual). Besides, titles are also removed.

Apparently you can still access the old stores for now using specific links

 

 

 

Very interesting. Obviously these are the links which are used in the old ps app version. Never noticed before that it's only such a simple additon in the url.

So even if I'll be forced to do the app update, I can still use the old store. Nice! ☺️

Viewing my PSN money isn't as simple as before. :(

 

Game tiles really need titles below them.

Just a quick FYI to everyone: as recently as last night the old (US) store linked by @SnowxSakura was 100% functional on mobile. I used it to login, add a gift card to my account, and made 4 purchases that I received receipts for and was able to download to my PS4 later with no issues. Crossing my fingers that it continues to work indefinitely. 🙂

If this goes live, you're a hero. Sony should just pay you for the site rebuild.

 

Btw, where is that completion time coming from (if it is that)? Is it from howlongtobeat.com? Would love to see those stats.

It’s time to platinum (and I realized after posting that screenshot that it was very buggy! Fixed now though), obtained from various trophy guides (roughly an average of the time said by the 3 linked trophy guides).

 

Still working out some kinks with scraping the new Sony store (im not using the old chihiro API, to futureproof the site) but I’m hoping to have a private beta up in a week or so. PM me if interested.
