Ever since Zune Video marketplace, Microsoft has made a big deal about the social viewing side of entertainment on the Xbox. Sony want in on that social side of things, launching PlayTV Live Chat yesterday. The service lets you text chat with other people watching the same shows as you are using the Play TV. Exciting!

I just spent an hour or so with some of the guys from Sony Computer Entertainment and getting a good, close look at the new PS3 Slim. I know the Interwebs are teeming with photos and videos and impressions, so I figured I'd give you my thoughts in Haiku format. Below the jump, of course!

You know all those big Playstation announcements that Sony made yesterday out of Liepzig? Well the local branch of Playstation has dropped some info on what they mean locally, and the bad news is that when it comes to getting the latest and greatest, Australia is on a severe time delay.

For a start, we're not getting the 160GB PS3. Considering we're only just getting the 80GB model next week, this doesn't come as a complete surprise, especially considering Sony's willingness to let users swap in their own hard drives. But having a higher-end model might have been nice for hardcore gamers, especially if we see the same Rock Band 2 features appear on Playstation (and we actually get Rock Band 1 or 2 at some point, I guess).

The new PSP-3000 drops on October 16 for $299.95, and the wireless keyboard peripheral will land by the end of the year for an undisclosed sum.
