Rakis said:

December 17th, 6:05 pm

Why doesn’t the store update at a set time – the other console makers manage to do it. It makes Sony (and the site admins) look unprofessional. At best. That said, it’s time to buy some games.

Thank you for all the free comics in the store!! Any chance of the Metal Gear Solid collection coming? And the Uncharted motion comic coming to the EU store?

One more thing, any chance of getting a comic reader update so L and R change the page/frames? That would be perfect for the PSP Go!
