PAL PlayStation Store: Premature Commercialisation

Normally, I don't write these until Friday Australian time. Yet here it is, Thursday night, and I'm writing up the PAL PlayStation Store update. What could possibly compel Sony to release it half a day early?

Turns out, not much. The Heavy Rain demo is officially out, but then we told you how to get that days ago, so hopefully you've already played it.

Aside from that, there's a 1st Birthday party going on for Sony's Flower, which is going for £2.40/€3. Bargain.
