Teething issues.

Sony have issued a statement on the new PlayStation Store, which has seen a somewhat troubled launch over the last day or so, not least with payment issues and slow updates being reported by users who saw it before it was pulled.

“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 Store is already live in the following countries: Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, UAE, Kuwait , Qatar, India, Israel and South Africa.

    And why the … *sigh* don’t they update their post on the blog and answer some questions from people. It’s understandable if they need to tweak it after a launch, but keep communicating, god damn it SCEE when will you ever learn?

        Yeah no reason to update their blog, considering that’s where most people read.

    yep, went on it last night to my surprise was the old store. Total confusion and no update from SCEE, what a surprise.

    Keep it up Sony and for the next Gen you will lose customers.

        I agree with that, even if it was on twitter or in the forum.

    The new store became available for me last night at 8:30pm and i’m in the uk, weird that its not there for some of you peeps. Its a much nicer design, havent bought anything yet so cant comment on the transaction troubles that some have/are experiencing.

      It was available in the morning and evening briefly but was reverted to the old store due to issues. Check again? I don’t have it as of 19:30 Thursday 18th.

    Couldn’t care less about the store, it’s the Battle Royale betas that are missing from several stores that I care about. Don’t see how they being missing is tied in to this.

    I hope it doesn’t take long to fix as it looked rather good.
