Kaz Hirai demos 'Life with PlayStation'

Weather and news channel for PS3.

Sony exec Kaz Hirai has been demonstrating a new PS3 exclusive application titled 'Life with PlayStation', Kotaku reports.

The application is a Google Earth-style affair with a spinning globe which presents weather and news information from around the world. Stories are accessible from their headlines and users can choose their own musical accompaniment whilst browsing. It's been suggested that later iterations of the system will also allow location specific 'Geo-tagged' images to be browsed.

Pics of 'Life With PlayStation', which should really be a documentary about addiction starring David James, but isn't, are available on Kotaku, courtesy of Dengeki Online.
