Rumor: The PlayStation Network Receiving A Visual Makeover

According to a report from Reg Hardware, Sony is currently working on a visual overhaul of the PlayStation Network. This makeover will gear the service more towards the look of Xbox Live and Steam, and away from its current text-heavy theme.

From what we can gather, the changes will mainly affect the PlayStation Store. A source told the site that Sony wants to remove a lot of the clutter from the service to make it more user-friendly for all players. The company is going for “an aesthetic layout with logically marked sections and rolodex lists.” Some of the new features would include a live search that guesses choices based on the letters input, database-like listings for both games and movies, and including details for each selection such as developers, or cast on the right side of the screen.

Also, the blue background will be thrown out, replaced by a full black background. Brighter colors will highlight content, a “Deal of the Week” section will make it to the new design, and it will look much better. While there aren’t huge changes being made to the service, a new look is never too bad. It will be nice to have everything together in one area, made more accesible for everyone, don’t you agree?
