If you're reading this article, you're browsing the new version of We've been working on "Version 3" of the site behind the scenes for a long time, and today we finally launched it. Hooray!

PSU Version 3 is far more than a mere layer of visual finesse (though it certainly does look quite pretty). We wanted to make the site more functional, yet simpler to navigate. That task took a great deal of time and effort, but we're extremely proud of the final product. While we realize there might still be a few minor kinks to work out, we'll continue to polish PSU and the new PS3Forums until we're 100% satisfied with their functionality. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the new and improved PlayStation Universe!
