PlayStation social-networking plan rumor sparks blog war

PlayStation social networking plan rumor sparks blog war

With the Game Developer's Conferencecoming up next week in San Francisco, rumors are flying fast and furious about what big announcements will be made by the guys who make those little plastic boxes that sit under your TV.

One rumor making the rounds is about a new feature for the PlayStation 3 called PlayStation Home, which would combine elements of the Nintendo Wii's Mii avatars with the Xbox 360's achievement points, creating an appealing social-networking tool. According to popular game blog Kotaku, this will be part of Sony Computer Entertainment President Phil Harrison's keynote address.

As a bizarre aside to this rumor, the blogosphereis now buzzing about Sony's reaction to the initial Kotaku post, which included canceling GDC interviews and freezing the site out from media events. You can find a wide-ranging discussion about this on Kotaku, Digg, Gizmodo, Joystiq, and GameDaily, among other sites.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
