PlayStation Store’s long-awaited redesign goes live across European territories today, Sony has confirmed. The store relaunch was recently postponed to give Sony more time to iron out some teething issues.

PS Blog EU confirms that the new PS Store would be launching across Europe “later today.”

The new store delivers a clearer panel-style marketplace similar to Xbox Live’s Metro system. Sony has explained the new layout and the reasoning behind its new appearance in a blog post.
