Why was it changed in the first place?!?!?! The new store takes at least 30 seconds to load and then lags hard. This new store is complete trash. I demand it be changed back to the simpler and far less problematic store. The JPN PSN Store still uses the old format and guess what, it is the nicest and most organized thing out there. The US store has ALWAYS been disorganized and a mess and the new store now follows up with severe lag and long load times. Ive never seen such horrible planning. Who ever thought that this new design was a good idea needs to be punched in the face. This store is so infuriating

The new layout has been a complete disaster. It takes forever to load, the search lags worse than an EA server, there is a 10 item cap for the cart, DLC is now HARDER to find for games, etc. Sure it looks nicer but it traded what little ease of use the US store did have for looks. The fact that it now takes at least 20 seconds to load up is also an issue and when it does load it lags at every little button press. Trying to buy multiple DLCs at the same time such as songs for RockBand or Guitar Hero is now more time consuming. The store now has a cap of 10 items. Also older games with DLC have a completely different DLC layout than newer games. RockBand is one such example. RockBand 1 has a stupid vertical column layout while RockBand 3 has the new list layout that can be filtered. Why the heck would this make sense?!?! Also the fact that who ever controls content for the PSN Store loses game DLC such as the RockBand 1 Export Key. **bleep**!?!?! Sadly Sony thought that the new crappy layout design should be implemented for every region and the same issues plague the other regions. The JPN PSN Store was always better. The store was easy to use, well organized, simple, and fast. Sure I dont read Japanese but the Store was just that EASY to use. I never got lost wondering menus and waiting for pages to load. Sadly this is no longer the case. The "new" layout has ruined it however the JPN PSN Store STILL remains a tad bit easier to use than the US PSN Store. Who ever thought the new layout was a good idea needs to thrown out a window. Its not so much who thought of it but the Programmers and people who review coding that failed to do their job and also need to thrown out a window.
