Team Up with PlayStation Network
this Earth Day and Help Save the Planet, One Digital Download at a Time

Sony Computer Entertainment America
(SCEA) is celebrating Earth Day this year by making a charitable donation to
Conservation International by donating $1 for each of the first 10,000
transactions made on the video delivery service for PlayStation 3. To
participate in the promotion, consumers can purchase any of the nearly 7,500
pieces of standard and high-definition digital video content available through
PlayStation®Store between the hours of midnight to 11:59 PM PST this Wednesday,
April 22.

Conservation International is a
nonprofit organization that seeks to protect Earth’s high-biodiversity
wilderness areas and important marine regions around the globe. PlayStation
Network chose Conservation International to receive the charitable contribution
because of its work based on cutting-edge science, comprehensive partnerships
and concern for human well-being. For more information about CI, please visit
www.conservation.org

Further celebrating the spirit of
Earth Day, PlayStation®Network is announcing a new Featured Collection entitled
“Save Our Earth,” which encompasses science-fiction, action movies, anime and
other films which showcase planet earth, and our effort to defend it from forces
who attempt to destroy it.

“Save Our Earth” Featured Collection
includes titles such as:

  • Cloverfield

  • Hancock

  • Independence Day

  • Sky Captain and the World of
    Tomorrow

  • Superman Returns

  • The Abyss

  • The Day After Tomorrow

  • The Terminator

  • Fantastic Four

As a reminder, Video files purchased
from the PlayStation Store can be backed up to an external storage device and
then restored to PS3’s internal hard drive for playback allowing you to clear up
space on your hard drive and then restore the video at a later time.

In addition, we are pleased to
announce that Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) gives new meaning to “waste
management” with a brand new puzzle game that combines strategy and frenzied
action with … well, garbage. Taking the puzzle video game genre one step
further, Trash Panic™ is the newest PS3 downloadable exclusive that tasks
players to compact as much garbage into a trash can before it overflows, and in
the most “eco-friendly” way as possible. Trash Panic will be released later this
Spring on PlayStation Network.
