Certainly happy to see the new Thundercats wound up on the store so quickly. Any chance we’ll ever see abc’s Wipeout?

I Know What You Did Last Summer is #4 in Canadian purchases? That’s so weird. What period of time do those charts cover, the last week?

Grace,

Can you please look into these movies to own in HD or SD:

Robin Harris’ Bebe’s Kids (1992)
She’s Out of My League (2010)
Bad Santa – Unrated Version (2003)
Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie (1997)

The Original Kings of Comedy (2000)

I never get a response on this post, but I hope you at least consider getting these titles on the PlayStation Store.

When can we exspect a fix to the latency issue we all are having when playing multiplayer COD Black Ops?
The ping assessing isn’t working. I will ofcourse except some latency, I can ping the servers 216.174.100.205 with a 48ms return, but it is not enjoyable to fire at an opponent just to have him kill you instead. I watch the kill cam and it shows that I haven’t fired a shot while I know I fired half a clip into the guy. Frustrating to complain about this and nothing seems to get done–ALOT LIOKE OUR US GOVERNEMT.
