235w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) have announced that they will be making many improvements to the PlayStation Network Store.
They stated they will be improving the digital quality of the games that are soon to be arriving on the store, to quote:
For the few years the store has been online, it has been in a huge competition with the 360's version of PSN, XBLA.
Items for the PSP like songs will be better quality when downloaded from your PC. The PSN Store sees games such as Fat Princess coming soon and with a huge range of PS one originals also on their way, Sony are putting their all into the PlayStation for the moment.
Despite having over 200 full games already on the network, Sony are planning to expand that to around 300 by the end of the year.
It is also rumored that Sony have secured exclusivity for DLC content for upcoming games. Xbox Live needs to watch their backs for the moment.
242w ago - Microsoft is gearing up to debut what it referred to as major improvements for Windows 8, designed to take file access in branch offices to the next level.
Even if Windows 7 is still in pre-RC stage, with the Escrow for the Win 7 Release Candidate, Build 7077, out the door, Microsoft has already confirmed that it is looking past the next iteration of Windows.

We will also soon be starting major improvements for Windows 8 where we will be including innovative features which will revolutionize file access in branch offices," the Redmond company revealed in a job posting (via ActiveWin).

250w ago - Producer Jason Villa shared some information on new features and improvements to the Online/SportsConnect area of MLB 09 The Show today via PS Blog as follows:
Along with improving the league system and layout, this year we focused on two major components of the Online League System...A) Draft System; B) Flex Schedules (with new Schedule screen).
We truly believe that the additions of these two components are what the Online Leagues needed. The goal is to allow users to customize as much as possible and to ensure that these league games get played!
Online League Draft System: While online leagues are fun, there's nothing like hand picking the team of your team. And taking it one step further than Fantasy Sports, you can actually take your team on the field and play with them yourself.
The draft system rivals that of any fantasy sports system. It allows from 6-30 players to hold a FULL LIVE Draft, with the ability to set your draft day/time, pick timer/length, chat (and harass), view the Player Card/stats of available players, view the Player Card stats of other users in your league drafting.
Another integral part of the draft system is the ability to set you draft queue. No matter how much planning you do, there's always a chance you can't...
