The new store offers a completely redesigned, rich user interface, with easy search and powerful content discovery through the integrated global catalog of more than 20,000 pieces of game-related content including downloadable games, add-ons and themes and over 100,000 videos and TV shows.
With the vast amount of content now available in the PlayStation Store, the redesign delivers easier navigation, improved discovery and integrates game, video and applications like never before. Product pages also deliver in-depth information about purchases, giving users valuable content information, while providing a rich visual experience similar to the advanced high-definition games only found on PS3.
While the new PlayStation Store is already available in Europe on all PlayStation Network connected PS3s, it was intended to launch in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Mexico on October 23, 2012 but due to "some issues that caused inconvenience for users," Sony has delayed the rollout until further notice.
Sony issued the following statement:
While we’ve already solved many of these issues, we’ve decided to postpone the October 23rd launch of the new store in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. We want to be certain that you have an exceptional experience with the new store, so we appreciate your patience as we complete the final phases before launch.
We’ll update you as soon as a new release date has been set. Until then, the existing PS Store will be fully operational with the game, movie and TV content that you enjoy today.
Thanks again for your patience.
