The Store actually "began" to update around 8.45pm EST yesterday, I say this because being aware of what was being released I was able to use the search function within the PS Store to search for Journey & a Demo or two & downloaded them last night, but yes. the store update was again late yesterday, which for those of us on the East Coast, & that includes me is very frustrating, especially if like me we're up early for work the next day, but so be it.

Yeah it was late, but it has happened before. Back when it updated on Thursdays, I remember once it wasn't up at all on that day. Also you can watch the tester on the PS blog; maybe it's just an embedded youtube version, I didn't watch it so I don't know.
Edit: It was August 28, 2009 I was thinking of . Friday update.
