173w ago - According to MoodieReport.com (linked above), the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) now offers PlayStation 3 game kiosks to visitors providing free public PS3 access to all.
This means of course that while waiting for flights, passengers will be able to entertain themselves on any one of the 14 PS3 consoles available!
To quote: "Implemented in partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong, the developer of PlayStation 3, the PS3 Game Poles comprise a total of 14 units of PlayStation 3.
Stationed at various spots, including areas near the boarding gates at Terminal 1 and the Coach Station at Terminal 2, these PS3 Game Poles allow travellers to enjoy themselves while waiting for flights."
174w ago - A PS3 owner has revealed to Gizmodo (linked above) that his Sony PlayStation 3 console became a little burnt after plugging in a Psychlone HDMI cable.
The big fry up ended after around 10 seconds once the cord had eventually melted off, however, it still caused quite a bit of damage.
To quote: "He had his PS3 plugged into an electrical source although it wasn't running any games at the time of this. He plugged in his Psyclone HDMI cable from his Samsung 32-inch flatpanel TV to the PS3 when the sparks started flying.
A flame actually shot up out of the PS3, and sparks were firing out of both ends where the HDMI cable met with the ports. The mess ended in 10 seconds when the cord melted off. Pictures included.
We cannot figure out why/how this occurred. No breakers were tripped, no damage or discoloration to any wall outlets or other power sources. Only the HDMI ports."
