Some Europeans and Asians who finally got their hands on a PS3 have found out that they still have to wait even more before they're able to access the digital download service dubbed the Playstation Store.

In addition to shameful cross-promotion of Sony Pictures films, the Playstation Store has downloadable games that can be played directly on the PS3. These include racing title Grip Shift, arcade classic Qbert, and the quirky PS3-specific game flOw.Affected European areas include Bulgaria, Croatia, Iceland, and Greece.
