Yesterday Sony launched the brand new PS Store that was shown off last week. Or at least they tried to before they had to pull it due to a raft of problems with the service.
The new-look digital store should have rolled out and given us glossy shopping perfection; instead it gave us crashes, account authentication problems and headaches all round. Naturally this led to Sony reverting back to the original store until the issue can be solved.
“The phased launch of the new PlayStation Store has been temporarily postponed in some territories as teething issues related to the global roll-out of the Store are being addressed and resolved,” a statement issued to MCV reads.
“It is really important to us that the best possible Store experience is delivered and we appreciate your patience as we resolve these matters.
“The new PlayStation Store is now live in the following countries: Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Germany, UAE, Kuwait , Qatar, India, Israel, Slovenia, Hungary, Turkey, Greece and South Africa.”
Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for everything to blow over. Perhaps things will be fixed before the store launches in North America next week.
