Sony to Change EU PlayStation Store Updates to Wednesdays
Since the inception of Sony's PlayStation Store, weekly updates for both North America and Europe have been on Thursdays, but beginning in May Europeans will get them a day early as they are moving to Wednesdays.
A press release recently sent to PS3 and PSP developers said the date for updating the PlayStation Store is subject to change. From May 5th onward, the updates to the virtual platform will be made Wednesday.
Remember that the updates are Xbox Live on Wednesday, which may be one reason for the upcoming change.
To quote, in part, from the release: "Changes to SCEE Game Store Publish Day
On May 5th, 2010 the SCEE Game Store of PlayStationŽStore publish day will move to Wednesdays for all content.
The final Thursday update published will be on April 29th, 2010."
Not a bad idea, especially with the comment about the 360 being on wednesdays. Only really affects people with both systems, but if there's something you want coming out online, and you're deciding between both, usually you'd go for the 360 version cause it's out a bit earlier.
Anyways, here's hoping they do the same for north america!
Instead of just moving the days, how about giving us the same content and layout as the american store. They get somethings weeks before and thats if we get it at all! Also the US store is so much easier to navigate around than ours. Now I know there are ways and means of getting things from other stores before somebody points that out to me.
