Well, they didn't announce one in its current parlance exactly. It's more like the original horse -- the one that disgorged the elite Achaeans into Troy. In this case, the Trojan Horse is the PS3 console, and it will be disgorging content. It's not I who made this historical comparison, some analyst did, but I sure wish I had.

The plan was, all along it seems, to roll out the game console and constantly upgrade its capabilities. For example, soon you will be able to get http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20080627/tc_nf/60522 from your PS3, download feature films, and there will be a photo/movie management app with geotagging and a globe view, not unlike what I saw at the http://www.crunchgear.com/2008/06/18/more-surface-secrets-youll-wish-you-were-here/ event, but without the (somewhat critical) touchy interface.

Well, I look forward to getting a PS3 one of these days, but they keep making it a sweeter deal so I think I'll just continue to hold off for the moment.
