A few days ago, Argus9 had reported about the newly designed PlayStation Store having issues in the UK. Unfortunately, my fear of this situation has become true, in which it has now been delayed in North America. Here’s what Eric Lempel stated about the status of the new PS Store:
As you may know, we launched the new PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 earlier this week in Australia, New Zealand and several countries in Europe. Although the new PS Store is operating smoothly in most countries, there have been some issues that caused inconvenience for users.
While we’ve already solved many of these issues, we’ve decided to postpone the October 23rd launch of the new store in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. We want to be certain that you have an exceptional experience with the new store, so we appreciate your patience as we complete the final phases before launch.
Those who were eager for this Tuesday store update to test out the new design will have to wait a little longer it appears. We’ll keep you updated the moment we hear of the new release date.
