Sony unveils new PSN Store

No, these are NOT another 14-year-old's attempts to fool the internet. Sony has finally officially revealed the first shots of the new PlayStation Store overhaul to come in April.

Here's the full official scoop:

This April, PLAYSTATIONStore, the online content store on PLAYSTATIONNetwork, is getting a whole new look and feel - and it's in response to feedback from the millions of PSN registrants in the PAL region.

The revamp comes in response to a survey last year which showed that many PLAYSTATION Store users wanted a better interface and easier navigation. The new design will deliver a hugely improved navigation system, much greater scope for categorisation and a dynamic new user interface.

Content will be suspended for two weeks while the improvements are carried out but users can look forward to a special update in mid-April.

There will be no weekly content updates between now and the re-launch, although users can still download content from the back catalogue, such as Warhawk and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

The PLAYSTATION Store revamp will not affect PLAYSTATION Network accounts or the virtual wallet system.
