    New PS Store launch issues force Sony to revert to old Store

    The new PlayStation Store, rolled out today, has suffered a difficult launch day.

    Sony has reverted to the old PlayStation Store for the time being amid complaints from PlayStation 3 owners.


    The new Store was issued this morning, when it began rolling out in territories including the UK, but PS3 owners reported a number of issues with it. Gamers complained about terrible loading times and problems adding funds to the PSN wallet.


    Now, Sony has kicked users back to the old Store, which continues to work as it should.


    "The last 30 mins with the new store has been the most frustrating experience I've had with PS for years," wrote "evret" on the PlayStation blog. "it failed to recognize I'm a Plus member till I quit and reloaded, had 3 Store crashes countless errors and now I can't add funds at all. Tried on PS3, Vita and on the SEN website with 3 different credit cards (all of which are valid with enough funds).


    "All I wanted was Unfinished Swan and Borderlands 2 DLC but only managed to download a couple of demos... bring back the old store, at least it worked."


    "I downloaded the new Store, a little slow, but otherwise looking great," said Xephon1970. "Tried to purchase The Unfinished Swan - did not recognise I'm a PS+ subscriber. Then the Store crashed, reloaded, crashed again. Now I have the old Store back. Restarted my console, the update is nowhere to be seen..."


    The new Store is live for gamers in Australia, New Zealand and Nordic territories. It goes live in Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and Belgium in the next hour, reads a tweet from the PlayStation Blog.


    "Additional regions will then continue to be added throughout the night and into Thursday," reads the latest tweet. "If it's not with you now, it will be very soon!"

    That's too bad..was looking forward to the new look, if only to have a fresh new experience with the store.

    Haven't been to the store in weeks but I think I'll give it a little more time till Sony gets this sorted.

    No issues with the store in Australia, PS+ and all. Shame it's clunky and too Xbox like. -_-"

    Yeah seems rather clunky if I'm honest.

    When you go into a specific themed section, for example "Autumn Sale". The autumn sale banner takes up half the damn screen and you only get tiles of half the games/products you would see had the banner not been so big. Annoying.

    I actually think I prefer the old store, and the way it organised things. I guess it wasn't flashy enough.

    Edit: Thread rated 5/5. I love this forum

    i had a few tiny problems along with slow loading times, but it seemed to work for the most part. I didn't try to buy anything though.

    Owell.

    It seems you guys that haven't got it is because they reverted back to the old store again. The new store is postponed:
