    You know what really frustrates me. Everytime I want to use the PlayStation Store on my PSVita, I get this annoying ''The connection to the server or device has been terminated (NP-2244-2)'' error constantly over and over and it refuses to load. I tried restrarting my modem, no fix, I tried switching networks, no fix, I tried rebuild my database in which cause me to spend minutes to fix everything, no fix.

    If anyone can help me put an end to this. That would be amazing. I have a perfect working connection and I don't know why this garbage store won't even work properly. Is anyone having the same problem?

    I even tried getting in touch with PlayStation's support team and they were no help.

    I don't like it as well. It's as slow as the PS3 PS Store.
    I wish the PS Vita PS store was as good as the PS4 PS Store.

    SONY needs to fix this.

    My best advice would be to use store.playstation.com or the Playstation App to make your purchases and then download them via your Download History or PS3. That reduces the time spent in the Vita store at least. I have the same issues on my PS TV but strangely not on my Vita.

    Remember when the PlayStation Store used to hang when trying to download something? It took them months to fix that.

    ...that´s pretty annoying indeed!!!...and also the fact that some games are missing in the New Releases or the Overall PSVita Games-List...for example I had to use the Search Option to find Resident Evil Revelations 2 when it came out...

    As much as the Vita Store is tedious to use, the PS3 Store is much worse. I prefer having a functional Store like the Vita's rather than an nonfunctional one like PS3's.

    The problem with the PS3 Store is that it's too bloated now.

    The newer design never worked really well IMO. PS3 just can't handle that Store design, meanwhile the PS4, while sharing the same design, works really well.

    ^ The fact that it's within a XMB world didn't help either.

    I now only use the web store for all of my PSN purchases. Using each console's bespoke store is just a hassle, and they're all surprisingly poor.

    It's really much easier. You can also just add PS3 and PS4 games to your download queue from the webstore too and then the games start downloading automatically next time you turn on the console(s).

    And remember when nothing loaded on the PS3 store? Bad times.

    I think you can use the official app for your smartphone too?

    The smartphone app basically redirects to a webpage when you want to search or browse the store. I find it more tedious than the PSN store on the Vita. To be honest, the PSN store on PS4 is no better. I still have no clue it PS2 classics are out in the Australian EU region. I've searched and find nothing..

    Cant say I've had a problem with it other than having to use the search for new/unlisted games like GOW, FFX & Bastion.

    Its not ideal, the layout could definitely be improved but I dont often have error messages. Maybe I'm just lucky?

    The PS4 PS Store is almost lag free. Wish the Vita and PS3's PS Store was lightning quick.

    The most annoying is, Vita store is quicker than one on PS3 but unstable because of the error's (on both Ps Vita over here).

    Far more annoying is the fact that in the EU, most of the time you don't see all games and dlc's in the Vita Store itself but only on PC of PS3, I really hate that fact.

    You're joking right? I STILL can't find any PS2 re-releases on the PSN Store using my PS4. When I use the app on my phone, I can find them but pressing anything further after search results just comes back with an error.

    If Sony want to seriously make money on the digital front, they will revamp this abomination they call an online 'store' and get this sh*t together. This is absolutely appalling.
