PlayStation Store American Launch Delayed

October 20, 2012

The new PlayStation Store has had a bit of a rocky start with it’s European and Australian launches, but it’s back online there. It seems that Sony is taking it’s time to learn from mistakes before deploying the system further. The PlayStation Store was originally scheduled to launch in the US, Canada, Mexico and Brazil on Tuesday the 23rd, but the official PlayStation Blog has announced a delay.

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.

The current PlayStation store will remain in place until the new system can be made ready. Currently there is no release date for the new store in the Americas, but I can’t see it taking more than a week or two for Sony to iron out the bugs and get the system online. European and Australian gamers will continue to enjoy the new, if slightly buggy features while Sony works on a solution.
