338w ago - Sony of Japan has revealed a new service called Life-X which enables users to manage their own private digital content such as photos and videos though a Web browser. The service is set to start in October 2008.

"Toward our goal to make 90% of Sony's products support network function, the service will help increase the added-value and convenience of Sony's products," said Nobuki Kurita, executive deputy president of Sony Marketing.

To quote: The service is slated to start in mid October 2008. Ahead of that, the company will disclose the beta version and allow 500 pre-registered users selected in a drawing to try it from Sept 25, 2008, the company said.

As the aims of introducing Life-X, Sony Marketing cited the following reasons: (1) to enable users to manage their private content on the Internet and (2) to allow them enjoy sharing the content they are managing.

Life-X can manage photos, videos, blogs, text memos and web clip content. Each user is allowed to manage up to 500 Mbytes of photos. It can also manage content on other Web services than Life-X.

Rumor: New XBox Experience to Launch on September 25 & More!

Rumor: New XBox Experience to Launch on September 25 & More! 50°
338w ago - If this is remotely true, the Internet's going to break. This post on VGChartz reckons New Xbox Experience will launch on September 25 alongside what sounds like a comedic amount of game announcements.

To quote: "Microsoft will release a dozen new demos after the launch. There will be four new downloadable pieces of content a preview of the GTA DLC. A Mass Effect expansion. Portal and a free map pack for Halo 3.

Microsoft will unveil twelve new games never seen before that will be exclusive or first on the 360. Strangely enough the author only gives out code names for said games. Though they speculate that among them is Assassins Creed 2, Mass Effect 2, a new Conker title, a Rare shooter new franchise, and two new Halo titles."

Seriously, this is highly likely to be complete bollocks. Read it, though. If it's a lie, it's a great one. The codewords for the games are priceless.

339w ago - From the Press Release:

PRESS RELEASE: RECYCLED PLAYSTATIONS BECOME BRITISH DESIGNER CHAIRS

London-based Pli Design Ltd (http://www.plidesign.co.uk) is launching its latest eco-friendly product, a chair made from 100% recycled games consoles. The launch takes place on Wednesday September 10, 2008 in London, at the HQ of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The British manufactured 'Reee® chair' has a plastic seat and back made entirely from recycled PlayStation®2 computer games consoles*. Unlike most recycled plastics, which come from a variety of sources, the plastic in the Reee chair is entirely from a single source, making it the first of its kind in the country.

The Reee chair - which is available for the contract, education and domestic markets - was conceived at the annual Eden Project Suppliers conference in Cornwall, where the Pli team discussed the possibilities for reusing high-quality plastic from waste electronics products with other manufacturers, including Sony Computer Entertainment.

Each chair uses 2.4 kg of recycled plastic and the chair parts are designed to be disassembled at the end of their life and recycled again and again. The production of recycled plastic requires a fraction of the energy used for 'virgin' plastic that comes straight from...
