Sony today announced that the more than 1,000 "Playstation TV" PS3 demo units stationed throughout Japan will be converted into "Playstation Spots" in the near future.
This means that there are now two kinds of Playstation Spots in Japan. The first kind is the "Sharing Type Playstation Spot," or the ones that distribute game demos via the PSP's Game Sharing function. The new kind are these "Access Point Type Playstation Spots," also known as "Playstation TV." These spots feature:
*Game demos you can download onto your Memory Stick (which won't be erased after your PSP turns off, unlike the demos distributed via Game Sharing)
*File downloads, such as videos, wallpapers, and audio
*PSP System Software updates
*Internet content browsing (a.k.a. web browser internet access)
*Online gaming for games that support Infrastructure for online play
