The website RegHardware is claiming that PSN will undergo a redesign soon that will focus more on images rather than the more current text layout. The website claims that Sony is quietly testing the new layout which will be more like “an aesthetic layout with logically marked sections and rolodex lists”. They are also claiming a new, more smoother live search tool will be added.
The movies section of the store is said to be undergoing a makeover that resembles IMDB, which will show details for the movie to the right, letting you select actors and other things, letting you select them and read details. THe games section also being redone and categorized by genre and publisher and other factors, the blue theme will also be thrown out in favor of brighter colors in the foreground.
Though the website refers to this update being to “PSN”, it seems to me this is mainly referring to the PlayStation Store. The Store already has a nice look to it but some of these features will be welcomed to the store though. Keep in mind that this is still a rumor and most rumors regarding PSN usually don’t happen so it’s best to not take this too seriously but there are thoughts that something may get announced at Gamescom regarding PSN.
