Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has announced that Life with PlayStation will release today, September 18, worldwide simultaneously.
For those of you who don't know, Life with PlayStation is a new lifestyle service that offers users a new visual and interactive way to use their PS3 to access news and information from around the world.
As the initial content, LIVE CHANNEL will be released for Life with PlayStation. Through network connected PS3, it delivers worldwide news and information centering on two themes, "place" and "time" on a world map interface. Some of the live content includes cloud imagery (provided by University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center), along with weather information (provided by The Weather Channel), news headlines (provided by Google News), and live camera images (partially provided by The Earth Television Network) of nearly 60 cities around the globe. Through LIVE CHANNEL, PS3 users will be able to enjoy worldwide news and live information free of charge. In addition to LIVE CHANNEL, Life with PlayStation will continually deliver a wide variety of interactive content and channels to living rooms through network connected PS3s.
PS3 users can easily join Life with PlayStation by simply clicking the Folding@home icon on the network column of XMB that will update to Life with PlayStation.

Downloading it now, great way to make people do folding. :D but don't really care about this addon, but it's free so it's just plus.
edit: atleast it seems to be better than wii's new channel and weather channel.

Like I thought, they had no other choice after it slipped out.

What the he!!, no Copenhagen ??? I know that Denmark is a small country, but they got Stockholm (Sweeden) and Oslo (Norway), both are smaller cities than Copenhagen.

@Wuffer: I guess it's how large the country is... I don't know.. Maybe it's not completed yet.. =P. I'm from Sweden, and I don't really care for this program (as it is right now). News arent really that interesting, and I have my iPod to see the weather forecast..
