i though this was gonna be some new exiting news about final fantasy!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Heh, I thought this was Final Fantasy news...but turns out it's still just as good. Free books!

Not a bad way to advertise, its almost a new market opening. Advertising your books specifically for next gen consoles seems like an intelligent move.

-Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?

Get you hocked on the prequal, to buy the full book.

Good techique for both public and author. <-- Tells some truly terrible tales.

We got screwedSmilie

I didn't think the DS browser supported PDF files.

Can you only access the book on the DS/PSP/console? How would they limit it to those? I guess I should just try it and see shouldn't I...
