Not content with going any longer without flattering their competition, Sony has decided to rush their new PSN store out into the unsuspecting and innocent European market.
“We wanted to get this out to you as soon as possible.”
“Anyone else hates the new PSN store?” says random Gamespot System Wars message board user ArchoNils2. “Looks to Windows 8-ish, uses way to much space, to hard to actually find what you’re searching for … I hate it.”
These are the countries affected by the disaster: Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, UAE, Kuwait , Qatar, India, Israel and South Africa.
As a sign of goodwill and mercy, Sony has temporarily postponed the launch of the store in other markets.
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.
In other console update news, the new Xbox Dashboard rolled out on October 16th, which continues Microsoft’s commitment to abandon their gaming audience and replace it with Nintendo’s casual leftovers from the previous generation; featuring more Bing, Internet Explorer, and…why do people want this upgrade again?
Nintendo also responded on their own Wii Shop Channel by doing absolutely nothing since 2006.
