Sony Announces Improvements for PlayStation Network Store

350°
284w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) have announced that they will be making many improvements to the PlayStation Network Store.

They stated they will be improving the digital quality of the games that are soon to be arriving on the store, to quote:

For the few years the store has been online, it has been in a huge competition with the 360's version of PSN, XBLA.

Items for the PSP like songs will be better quality when downloaded from your PC. The PSN Store sees games such as Fat Princess coming soon and with a huge range of PS one originals also on their way, Sony are putting their all into the PlayStation for the moment.

Despite having over 200 full games already on the network, Sony are planning to expand that to around 300 by the end of the year.

It is also rumored that Sony have secured exclusivity for DLC content for upcoming games. Xbox Live needs to watch their backs for the moment.

285w ago - Update: We experienced a minor glitch this morning with the Buzz space in PlayStation. We know what the issue is and we are working to resolve it as soon as possible. Please check back with the blog for an update on when it will go live.

Today PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX has announced that Photo Sharing is coming to PlayStation Home, as follows:

Greetings, Homies. Fasten your seatbelts, because we have the most exciting news to hit PlayStation Home since Open Beta! We know you loyal Home fans have been asking for media sharing since the get-go, and we're very happy to tell you that the first stage is here!

Photo sharing, the first feature to support user-generated content, is finally coming to PlayStation Home! Starting today, Thursday, June 4th, you'll be able to purchase picture frames in the Mall, upload photos from your hard drive or select from a gallery of default pictures, and then display them in your personal apartments.

So if you've got photos from your latest game tournament that you want to share, all you have to do is upload them, choose the angle and size options for display, and then invite your friends back to your Home pad for your viewing party. Awesome!

But that's not all! As usual, we have more exciting content...

The Experience PlayStation Now program had a "beta test" of sorts earlier this month, with Sony employees well-versed in the ins and outs of the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3 setting up temporary shop in a select number of Best Buys across the country.

The idea for the program is fairly simple: Get the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Portable, into peoples' hands, explain all of the things they can do, and people will buy them.

"This allows real, live passionate people to reach out to consumers," said Kim Nguyen, marketing manager for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2. "They will answer some basic questions and tell people things about the PlayStation 3 they may not know."

The merchandising representatives will tell people about the PS3's games, but also answer questions about the built-in Blu-ray player, about the hard drive, about going online with the console.

"This is the sort of dialog we want to have with our consumers," Nguyen said. "The root of this program is education. We know people see the PlayStation 3 as a very expensive machine. In order for them to appreciate the value of the PlayStation 3 they need to see all...
