This ain't funny, Lionel

Yesterday’s European PlayStation Store re-launch did not go according plan. Following a catastrophic roll-out marred by slow loading and bugs, the platform holder has decided to delay the release of the new digital storefront in some territories for the time being.

“The phased launch of the new PlayStation Store has been temporarily postponed in some territories as teething issues related to the global roll-out of the Store are being addressed and resolved,” a spokesperson for the company said. “It is really important to us that the best possible Store experience is delivered and we appreciate your patience as we resolve these matters.”

The new PlayStation Store is currently available in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Germany, UAE, Kuwait , Qatar, India, Israel, Slovenia, Hungary, Turkey, Greece and South Africa. Sony did not state whether the delay would have an impact on next week’s expected North American launch.
