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.

It has been designed to push new and featured content to the top of the store, and to make searching for content quicker and easier. VG247’s Stace Harman recently got a sneak preview of the new PS Store. Check out what he thought of it here:

Also, here’s an official Sony walkthrough video of the new layout:
