Way back in 2006 Sony released Mainichi Issho (Everyday Together). The free PlayStation Network game stars Toro, the Sony created cat mascot. You can dress him up with a series of free clothes, play a few mini games and purchase costumes for him. When I first downloaded it I watched one of the Torostation briefings, which supposedly updates everyday with news related to video game. Other than that, I haven’t played around with Mainichi Issho much.
I might start playing with Mainichi Issho again because Mainichi Issho has a neat video sharing system. You can record Toro roller skating, Cosplay bowling or playing in his house. After you save the video on the PlayStation 3's hard drive it can be uploaded directly to YouTube where you can show your cat directing skills to the world.
This is a very clever use of the PlayStation 3 hardware. Perhaps, the technology will be transferred over to Home or a future PlayStation 3 game? While I'm waiting to see how Sony plans to utilize integrated YouTube sharing I want to see what crazy things other people make Toro do.
