Sony eyes world record for 'Toro Station' newscast

Toro Station, a semi-interactive newscast running on PlayStation 3s in Japan, is about to hit its landmark 1,000th episode, and Sony has decided to submit the milestone to the Guinness Book of World of Records for most consecutive days of game content distribution. The Japanese-only content is available as Mainichi Issyo (Everyday Together), an application that houses various content including minigames and the long-running news program.

Toro Station stars two cats who humorously deliver news and recommendations to viewers while appearing extremely adorable in the process. Having been available since the day of the PS3 launch in Japan, the content has seen more than 700,000 downloads across the PS3 and PSP, according to Sony. Fake cats and world records? Oh Japan, we love you.
