*sigh* Hope this goes through before I have to leave for work. Just as an assurance thing.

But, heck, I was expecting this for the 15th. Glad I chose Super Saver Shipping, else my checking would’ve been overdrafted. :x

@trev456 – I liked the joke well enough.

@197 so a company that has thousands of employees trained in this and people already working on this can’t ask their employees to start something that is part of their job? i can get everything ready piece by piece with the numerous hours in a day. waiting last minute is bad business

The PSN staff probably just operates on cannabis time, and today they’re probably all out voting on Prop 19.

This is why Playstation will ALWAYS take backseat to Microsoft. We get crappy ports and terrible punctuality all around. Thanks Sony!! I bet if I pirated this release, I would have had it faster. :)

OK, guys, lets get our heads together and stop beating ourselves up. The PlayStation Store updates on Wednesdays and not Tuesdays, so just work with that and keep a level head. I’m sure someone at Sony is laughing at some of you guys who are angry. Relax, the Store updates on Wednesdays and not Tuesdays. Cant say i didn’t tell you. Jus check on Wednesday morning, whichever time zone you are in and you should see the update present.
