A SCEE spokesperson released a statement on the European PlayStation forums yesterday about slow loading times for icons on the newly revamped PS Store:
As you will have noticed, the PS Store re-launched successfully today, and we’d like to thank you for your positive feedback.
We are aware that many of you have experienced delays whilst the PS Store’s thumbnail icons are being downloaded. This is a temporary consequence of a new system implementation and high global traffic levels, and will be resolved within the next few days.
Thank you for your patience and continued support!
Hopefully things will settle down after you all stop, you know, using your PS3s. Oh.

SCEE’s just confirmed to videogaming247 that the next PS3 Firmware, version 2.30, will release alongside the new PS Store on April 15 in Europe.
“Yes, Firmware 2.30 will be released at the same time,” said a rep.
The spokesperson also confirmed that the DTS sound upgrade detailed yesterday will be included in the European release.
The update is required to run the new Store, which was confirmed for an April 15 launch this morning.

The latest edition of PS3′s Firmware, 2.30, will be released on April 15, according to this XtremePS3 report. The site’s carrying a rough translation of a Japanese announcement on the SCEJ site, which says:
Sony PlayStation 3 online service will be renewed on April 15th, 2008 (Tuesday) evening. This will renew and expand the store by adding functionality described below:
- New interface and navigation improvements
- Preview video content using still images
- New download categories added
After the update, PS3 System Software 2.30 will be available.
The new PS Store will be released at the same time. Although not explicitly announced, you can assume this will be a global affair. We’re just checking with SCEE.
Update: Here’s the Japanese press release.

SCEE refused to be drawn on details of details of Firmware 2.30 this morning, following yesterday’s confirmation that the PS3 software update would be needed to use the new version of PlayStation Store, to be released in mid-April in both the US and Europe.
“We have made no official announcement of the details of Firmware 2.30 or exactly how the new Store will be deployed,” a rep told videogaming247.
If the information released yesterday was correct, there should be a full Firmware release in the next two weeks, straight off the back of 2.20, which added BD-Live functionality only last week.
It’s all go, isn’t it?
