Life with PlayStation goes live

11:4918/09/2008Posted by D+PAD StaffNo Comments

Following yesterday’s mishap, Sony has finally launched its brand new PlayStation channel, Life with PlayStation.

The free “lifestyle” service provides real-time news, weather updates and other information from over 60 cities across the globe.

“Life with PlayStation provides a stunning interactive globe, a 3D world map that you can twirl around to see live cloud movement courtesy of the University of Wisconsin, combined with up-to-date weather information from the Weather Channel, top news headlines provided by Google news, and live web cam images via the Earth Television Network — all localized to the select city” PlayStation Blog states.

“And why not have your favorite soundtrack playing in the background while you go through your morning ritual (just think, no TV commercials and teasers to find out if you need to bring an umbrella to work)?” We usually just look outside.

SCEA also released a video explaining the ins and outs of Life with PlayStation, which you can catch over on D+PAD TV.

The 126MB package is available to download now by selecting the Folding@home icon, which you’ll find under “Network” on the XMB.
