PSN Store Open With Only Minor PWNage

PSN Store Updates

So after being down for 2 weeks, it is finally back open. Before I get into what you can get or could have gotten since 9pm PST Monday night as well, let me talk about the store in general. The new one that is.

First, I was able to update to the new one literally at 9:02 pm PST. Almost a day earlier than they originally reported. Just happened I was turning on to play a BluRay Disc and it prompted me for the update. I did as I always do with the updates, throw my controller in the air and hope they fixed the XMB. download it. So I do just that and decided to check out the new store. It actually looks pretty sweet. At least it did at first. Then I navigated into the store and saw that there were like no images showing up. So I had to wait for the descriptions to show up to see what I had my cursor over. That and it doesn’t skip down to the next row once you get to the end of the prior row. Yes, it’s nit-picky.

I will say the one thing that worked well is that it places a symbol next to everything you have already downloaded or once downloaded. Essentially anything in the Download history. Really nice for when trolling for more DLC and I’m not sure what I have already. Or if I’ve already got a trailer I didn’t think I had. But no more gilding the lilly. Here’s what some of you came for.
