We spoke to Gordon Thornton, VP of Network Operations, and Elliott Dumville, Product Development Manager for PlayStation Store, about the changes, and the full interview will be coming up on TheSixthAxis soon.
In the meantime, one of the key slices of information garnered is that the Store, when it launches next week in Europe, won’t be the final version. It’ll change and improve gradually, and on a fairly regular basis too, which is encouraging.
“In terms of getting it to market and it taking a long time, this actually represents getting the fundamentals right, and then we can start dropping new features in once it’s up and in the public domain,” Dumville told TheSixthAxis.
“Going forward we’re hopeful that every month, or every couple of months at worst, we’ll be dropping in new features, updates, changes and so forth,” Elliot added. “That will be a process which is a dialogue with the fanbase.”
Stay tuned for the full interview, which also touches on recent delays and communication, and why the Store has been built in HTML5…
