Explore the eccentric cast contained within, uncover unusual secrets, bathe in a swath of colors, and kick back to melodic tunes befitting this atypical gaming adventure.
But that's just the beginning. Read on for a complete list of games coming to PlayStation, and - as always - enjoy the Drop!

Maybe someone in the US can give me a correct answer...
What timezone does the US PSN store work off?
I'm going to start buying certain games from the US PSN store that don't reach the AU store for quite some time (there's also a big price difference, so it's win-win). I'd just like to know the time (or day) difference for when I should look on the store is so I'm not checking every hour or so.
I'm in New York City. The Store updates on Tuesday nights. I always check it around 7:00pm - 8:00pm Eastern time. I'm sure you can check the internets to see how that time translates to yours
Alright, thanks for the info.
