It appears that the Windows Store in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview has received a new layout as of today, it is currently not available worldwide. Users are reporting to be seeing the new layout in different areas of the world, being the UK, some areas of the US and more.
The new layout has come unexpected, as there was no official announcement about the new look. A user on Twitter pointed it out earlier, claiming that he is seeing a new layout of the store. He also asked if anyone else could see it worldwide.
The new layout makes it easier for users to navigate the store, while still keeping the Metro look that Microsoft has been working ever so hard on.
For a personal opinion, I think it would be nice for Microsoft to add more images to the store categories, instead of keeping the category boxes one plain colour.Microsoft, Windows 8
