Sony Leaks Revamped PS4 PlayStation Store with New Features, then Reverts it Back to the Old One

on March 8, 2016 6:39 PM

Games aren’t the only new thing coming to the PlayStation store on PS4 today, as Sony Computer Entertainment apparently sneaked in an update that completely revamped the pages dedicated to games.

Interestingly, each game’s features and download size are listed in a much more clear way, and high resolution trailers automatically running in the background have been added.

Each game has multiple pages that you can scroll with up and down on your D-pad or left stick, starting from a main game page and extending to Media, Details, Add-ons, Bundles, Avatars, Themes and Recommendations. Of course, not all the games have all of those pages, as some, for instance, don’t come with dedicated themes or avatars.

Update: Interestingly, the new pages have been taken down, and replaced with the old ones. Apparently, someone at Sony pushed a button too early, showing off an update that wasn’t yet ready for prime time. The unfinished state of the update was also indicated by a number of mistakes in the listings, with some games erroneously indicated as cross-platform.

This, of course, also means that this might not me the update’s final form. Luckily, we got plenty of screenshots before the store was rolled back, and you can enjoy them below.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
