PlayStation Store; so long, farewell...
It probably won't have escaped your notice that the PlayStation Store is 'down for maintenance' at the moment as we lead up to the release of firmware 2.30 and the brand spanking new store.
So now seems like the perfect opportunity to say a fond farewell to the old, browser-based PS Store.
There have been times, being in the UK, when we wondered if the Store was worth having at all. The occasional nonsense update from SCEE has left us scratching our quite considerable heads.
But overall, and never forgetting it is a free service, we have enjoyed a good array of demos, games, add-ons, videos, wallpapers, themes and the odd surprise here and there.
Tomorrow is the big reveal - look out for your PS3 nagging you for an update. That'll be your cue to download v2.30 and gain access to the shiny new store.
Then check again Thursday for the first update of the new era. We already know what's coming to the PS Store this week, and if that is an indication of times to come then we should all be very happy indeed.
