It appears that one of the most frustrating aspects to the PlayStation Store—the search function—will be fixed in an upcoming update.

According to users on ResetEra, the third beta for firmware version 6.0 includes a new search feature that throws away the current alphabet Rolodex-style design in favor of a more streamlined QWERTY interface.

As seen in the screenshots below, searching for well-known titles won’t bring up random suggestions. Plus, users will be able to search by game title, publisher, and genre.

Apart from the search function’s design, users running the beta also reported that it runs much faster than the current system. According to the thread’s original poster, Kyoufu, “results update with each letter input.”

It’s unclear if there are any other major improvements within beta three, but it seems like one of the more significant features of firmware version 6.0. Sony began sending out invites to the opening beta in early August with the promise participants would find “smaller quality of life and performance fixes.” Since then, players have mostly noticed speed improvements, with the new search update being the standout feature so far.
