The store’s search function has also been improved. Similar to Google Instant, it now begins providing a list of options as each letter is typed. Common misspellings and abbreviations, such as “MW3″ or “Mas Efect,” will also be covered.
“What will be refreshing to customers is that this will represent a new agile program that will enable us to add new content every month or so, rather than dumping the new content and saying we’re done,” said PlayStation Store product development manager Elliot Dumville.
Games are now grouped with their content. For example, a Call of Duty: Black Ops page will show all of its demos, full games, download content, and themes, alongside screenshots and recommendations for other Call of Duty content. Movie content also works in this fashion.
