Sony delays 'Life with PlayStation' debut

Revealed in June, Life with PlayStation is totally not Sony's answer to the Wii's news and weather channels. Okay, it is. Utilizing data from Google and a spiffy, HD rendering of the earth (think PS3's "earthrise" music visualizer) the downloadable app displays real-time weather and news headlines. It's also been delayed.

SCEA president Jack Tretton spoke about Life with PlayStation's imminent release at the company's pre-E3 media briefing last month. The way we understood it, the app would go live quite soon-ish. Now comes word from SCEA's senior R&D manager, Noam Rimon, that it will actually arrive in August. Hey, that's this month! Why the delay? Rimon cites "a few procedural matters" as the hold-up. (Translation: the R&D group was having too much fun spinning the virtual globe. Whee.)
