The newly redesigned Sony PlayStation Store is really nicely done but it takes so long for icons to load. Well, Sony has acknowledged the problem
and they are asking to bear with them as the update is rolled out and traffic levels should return to normal after a few days. As Kotaku points out
, why didn't they pre-load some of the icons with the update to help alleviate some of the problems? There are some icons in the store that shouldn't change so including those in the firmware update might have helped the problem of seeing blank screens.
