Long time listener, Discord server admin, and friend of the show TazTheTechWiz comes on for this episode of Mario's Minute to chop it up for a bit!

Mario’s Minute 039 - A Drowned Pixel & PS3/PSP/Vita Digital Storefront Shutdown

For this month of Mario's Minute we're just going over a few topics, but some big ones for this episode! The first being how I ended up forcing a phone upgrade early due to some negligence on my part. PS3/PSP/Vita storefronts are reportedly shutting down in July and August of this year, and although at the time of recording a straight up public statement has yet to be made, I took some time to give my thoughts over this issue in the past, present, and future of digital storefronts. Finally I also talk about a kitten rescue I've accidentally gotten myself into, and wrap everything up with a game store story.
