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

289w 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.

Rumor: Sony's PS3 Slim is 'Confirmed' to Open GamesCom

VG247.com has also confirmed that Sony's press conference is set to last "just over an hour" and the extra time around it is "for people to sit down", not the three hours as previously reported, and will begin around 7:00pm CET.

To quote from Pocket-Lint.com (linked above): "Sources close to the product have told us that Kazuo "Kaz" Hirai, head of Sony's console division, will announce the new hardware version of the PS3 at it's Tuesday evening press conference at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany next week.

The console, which has been rumored to be coming for some time, will land in shops in time for Christmas in both the UK and the US, and follow the company's history for creating slimmer versions of the console."
