I'm okay with the new Store, but I much preferred how quickly the old Store launched (since it wasn't an app, so to speak) and it was simple to navigate. The new Store definitely seems a bit more sluggish than the old one.
I'm okay with the new one, but if I had to choose between the two, I'd go with the older one for the speed and simplicity.
The old one had a MUCH , MUCH better Search Engine to it as well.

Sure the newer store is slower, and blah, blah, blah ... but now we aren't limited to just that, we can use the PC store in a browser on any computer and it works.
I like using the PC store. I use it for PS3 or PS Vita stuff. I sometimes use the PS3 store or the PS Vita store (on each device) ... I see it all as a transition to the PS4.
Download List remains the same. Good or bad, that's constant, for now. Buying via the PC store and using the download list(s) on each device is my preference. Main reason is searching and filtering on the PC Store is really nice. Makes it easy to use. Plus I can then just download what I want from my list when I want, without having to buy it on the PS3 store and "cancel" ... seems maybe trifling, but it is nicer, to me.
Whenever I am in the PS3 store I get frustrated by the filter and search options, my main reason for reminding myself to go [to the store] on my PC next time. It's not totally horrible though. Just very different, needs tweaking. We have options though.

I just wish they gave you a option and allowed you to DL the Old Store Format and use that one as opposed to forcing this New Store on ya like so much crappy beer.

It's doubtful they will ever convert the PSN Store back to it's Original Glory as it's been this way for a while now.
Yup which really make's me question the point of this post.
Likely just to let anyone who reads it know that some of us are still having issues with the store we never had before.
Hopefully some day a patch will be made that will allow me to access the PS Store via my PS3.
I can access the store via my PC I found out, but the search function is so messed up.
There seems to be no PS2 section. The only thing I can do is search for PSN titles and there are some PS2 games in there.
Funny how the PSOne classics get their own section, but the best selling console of all time does not.
When you search PS2 in the store it takes you to a single result, the PS2 game data utility thingy which I think is for games which used a HDD on PS2?
And when I went to the PS Store via my PC I found the layout and function to be much better then via the PS3 itself.
It made me think that was the reason for the change, but in making it work ok via PC almost broke it completely via the PS3.
But maybe i am the only one who has lost access to the store via my PS3's? Anyone else?

If enough ppl show their hatred for this new Store Design maybe they will redesign it again but this time not screw it up.
Still trying huh chicken!!
