No PSN Updates In Two Weeks

Good news: Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Store is getting an overhaul next month, (mid-April), and until this happens there will be no new updates. Fortunately we do have a few screenshots of the new design, which you can check out after the jump.

This April, PLAYSTATIONStore, the online content store on PLAYSTATIONNetwork, is getting a whole new look and feel – and it’s in response to feedback from the millions of PSN registrants in the PAL region.

The revamp comes in response to a survey last year which showed that many PLAYSTATION Store users wanted a better interface and easier navigation. The new design will deliver a hugely improved navigation system, much greater scope for categorisation and a dynamic new user interface.

Content will be suspended for two weeks while the improvements are carried out but users can look forward to a special update in mid-April.

There will be no weekly content updates between now and the re-launch, although users can still download content from the back catalogue, such as Warhawk and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

The PLAYSTATION Store revamp will not affect PLAYSTATION Network accounts or the virtual wallet system.
