Do you remember those glory days mid-way through the PlayStation 3’s lifecycle where its PlayStation Store was part of the operating system itself? Many people look back on that period fondly, because accessing the storefront was lightning fast. Sony looks poised to return to those days, as the PS Store on the PlayStation 5 is part of the console, and not a separate app.
Sony confirmed the tidbit during its presentation on the user interface today: “This is PS Store for PS5,” introduced the PlayStation Blog’s Sid Shuman. “It’s completely integrated into the system – it’s not a standalone app anymore. Browsing for new games to play will be easier thanks to the speed of the PS5 and a more personalised store experience.”
