As many of you undoubtedly knowThe PS . Store The copy-and-paste games are bypassed, and most are there for 60-second platinum awards. Browsing the new releases section of the PS Store has become a nightmare, overwhelmed by the many permutations of the exact same game.
It’s becoming a real problem, burying more legitimate games. While we don’t necessarily agree with heavy regulation – who gets to decide whether a game should exist or not? – we recently pointed out Sony has a real problem finding a suitable solution for this. We’ve suggested some clever changes to the way the PS Store desktop content can help.
And earlier this week, we noticed that the company had already made an adjustment. On both the PS Store app and the browser-based PS5, the new games bar is now sorted by bestseller rather than by release date. This means, at the time of writing at least, you’ll see games like Pregnancy worship And the Heaven’s Corridor instead of Jumping Turbo Noodles And the pig contest.
Now the key detail here is that the recent games are still there, and they can be found fairly easily with a few clicks, but the default filter is much more useful to the average user. There’s obviously a lot of work to be done here, but as a temporary workaround, we’re impressed with how quickly Sony has adapted here.
