Life with PlayStation is a service that brings you live news, live webcam feeds and weather among other things on your PS3, originally announced at Sony’s Strategic meeting in Tokyo back in June. Earlier last month at E3 Jack Tretton, CEO of SCEA, announced that the service would be available for the PS3 at the end of July. Noam Rimon, Senior Development Manager for SCEA, has announced on the PlayStation.Blog that the service will now be available in August.
The delay in deploying the service is "due to a few procedural matters," according to Rimon. The complete blog post is included below.
PlayStation.Blog post by Noam Rimon:
"We’d like to provide a quick update on Life with PlayStation for PLAYSTATION 3. We know many of you are eager to try out the new service for yourself, but you’ll have to hold tight. Due to a few procedural matters, the new service will make its way to PlayStation fans in August.
Rest assured, Life with PlayStation will be a service that introduces a new way to interact with your PS3. By bringing information from around the world into your living room, Life with PlayStation will offer a variety of interactive content and channels on a visually stunning worldwide map interface.
We’re focused on continuously expanding the world of PS3 through new services and hope to do just that with the upcoming launch of Life with PlayStation."
