The PlayStation Store has always been a slow, albeit functional, online store for PS4 and PS5 owners alike. It’s a pretty clunky place to buy digital games but things seem to be changing. Sony has hired former Apple executive Ben King to help improve the online store, among his other duties.
Often criticized for being slow and a bit buggy, fans have wanted an improved PSN store for some time now. However, it’s also worth pointing out that Apple’s iOS store isn’t the best either, making some fans wonder if this is a good fit.
We’ll have to wait and see if King’s presence can fix the PlayStation Store or leave things the way they are. Hopefully, things don’t get any worse, since the last thing fans want is a worse version of what we have now.
Sony released a statement to Variety about the hiring of Ben King, who is now Senior VP of direct-to-consumer operations. King will be overseeing Sony’s PSN Store and their DTC business, though most gamers are focused on him improving the company’s digital games store.
“We have the ability to better serve our community by delivering more personalized experiences, helping each and every customer to discover the perfect entertainment for them, through the right channel, at the right time,” King told Variety.
PlayStation owners everywhere have suffered various issues with the PlayStation Store, facing various bugs and slowdown when scrolling through the store. Admittedly, it’s not the worst experience out there for those with good internet, but there are still times when the store’s issues rear their ugly head. Sure, it’s not as bad as the Nintendo eShop, but that’s hardly a compliment.
