New look promises new interface, search, and improved content discovery

The Playstation store will get a new look on October 23rd, which Sony promises will make the user experience more streamlined and accessible.

With digitial distribution an ever more important part of the console market, the importance of ensuring that customers can find the content they want is paramount.

The newly designed store was announced on the Playstation Blog, and promises an improved interface, simplified search tool, and better content discovery.

Sony claims the PS Store now holds over 20,000 downloadable games, content packages, and themes, and over 100,000 TV shows and videos.

An interface capable of delivering all this content to an eager audience is key if Sony is to succeed in the digital marketplace.
