Rumor: PSN in for Massive Online Overhaul

Posted on Tuesday, July 5 @ 06:58:27 Eastern by


With the PlayStation 3 launch in 2006 came the PlayStation Network. In contrast, Xbox LIVE launched for the original Xbox in 2002, which has given the service plenty of time over two console lifespans to innovate, refine, and reinvent itself. According to a new rumor, it's now the PSN's turn to get a much-needed makeover.

This new rumor comes from The Register, who claims that Sony is quietly testing a new PSN with a more image-driven layout, with much less focus on text, and that will be more on par with Xbox LIVE and Steam. The look is said to be an "aesthetic layout with logically marked sections and rolodex lists". One of those sections will be a "Deals of the Week". Additionally, a new "live" search will replace the current text-entry method.

The movie store is said to be getting a redesign as well, akin to an "IMDB-style database", which lets you further navigate by producer, director, or actors. The same will be applied to the games store, allowing you to continue browsing by developer or publisher.

If true, these are some significant changes, and ones that the PSN is sorely in need of.
