Along with a TV-optimised design layout, the new Store features improved hub pages for games as well as an all-new search function.

It also appears to be slower than its predecessor, with what seem to be elongated loading screens and a more protracted journey between selecting and downloading content.

Sony says the redesigned Store will make sifting through its some 20,000 pieces of game-related content "more streamlined and accessible".

CVG's Andy Kelly and Iain Wilson talk through the new design's pros and cons in the video below.

Sony has also released a number of new screens for the Store, which you can see beneath the video.
