Sony adjusts default rating for PS Store amid shelf software backlash

As many of you undoubtedly knowThe PS . Store The copy-and-paste games are over, and most are there for 60-second platinum awards. Browsing the PS Store’s New Releases section has become a nightmare, because you’re overwhelmed with so 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.

On PS5, the New Games section now shows best sellers like Cult of the Lamb first

And earlier this week, we noticed that the company had already made an adjustment. In both the PS Store and the browser-based PS5 app, the new games bar is now sorted by best seller rather than by release date. This means, at the time of writing at least, you’ll see games like Pregnancy worship And Heaven’s Corridor instead of Jumping Turbo Noodles And pig contest.

Now the key detail here is that the recent games are still out there, and they can be found fairly easily with a few clicks, but the default filter is 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.
