500°
256w ago - In keeping with the PlayStation Beach Resort theme we have going today, here is another bit of related news.

Siliconera (linked above) has posted up some pictures (below) taken from Korea's world sand sculpting championship where Sony made giant PlayStation 3 (dubbed "SandStation 3") and PSP sand sculptures.

To quote: Donghae City was the held the first Korean Invitational World Sand Sculpting Championship. What does this have to with video games?

Sony Computer Entertainment Korea showed up and joined the sand sculpting fun.

That's what SCEK made and they seem quite proud of it since they sent out a news bulletin reporting their marketing stunt.

Sony's Life With PlayStation Gets 'World Heritage' Channel Added

100°
257w ago - Today Sony has updated Life with PlayStation by adding a completely new channel titled 'World Heritage' to it.

It's a simple update, as the channel includes information from various Web sites (including Wikipedia) from multiple areas around the world.

To quote: If you leave your controller for a long enough time, it automatically begins spinning the globe (like the other channels) and displays hi-res pictures from the areas you're hovering above about.

If you would like to see a picture from a designated area, then you can hover the country, hit 'X' and then press the 'start' button.

An overall nice addition to the free application, allowing many Life with PlayStation fans to do even more while helping the common good.
