The ‘new’ PlayStation Store application on your PlayStation 3 is now snappier. That’s the adjective everyone seems to be using on the internet this afternoon, and after a quick patch (taking it to version 1.02) we’d probably agree.
Loading times are somewhat quicker, it appears to be a tad smoother to navigate and it’s generally just a big nicer to use. Snappier. Yes. We approve.
The new PlayStation Store was announced last October to much excitement, and is a considerably richer environment than the old Store. It’s an application though, one that requires a further load, but with this latest patch that doesn’t seem to be such a chore.
Sony have promised to keep working on it, too, with things like a searchable download list due at some point this generation. Which will be really handy for Plus.
The patch is 26MB.
