The digital store will open in a week or two, but we're still working out details on a deal with Lucasfilm for digital Star Wars on platforms other than the iPhone.

  1. I'm personally just waiting for the Star Wars graphic novels. Not holding my breath though, very surprised they were not available at launch.

  2. Same here. I downloaded the app for the Mass Effect graphic novels, but I really wanted the Star Wars ones. I can't find a lot of them for anything near a reasonable price, especially the old ones anymore, and I want to read some of the Knights of the Old Republic graphic novels again.
