Arsenal Fans Get New Weapon - Technology
Now that even fusty old snooker has got with the 21st century and is providing spectators with earpieces that allow them to hear the same dreary commentary as armchair viewers, football is taking another step closer to the future.
Sony and Arsenal are trialling a new service where PSP-carrying fans at the game will be able to watch live, streaming action and selected replays of important match action from the Emirates Stadium on their PSP. Stats and other fancy wizardry could also be available.
Of course, you’ll look like a complete dick, but no worse than the writer who covered this story for the US version of Gizmodo. Quote – “Soon, loutish Englishmen with a penchant for portable gaming will watch replays on their PSP during Arsenal home games. Mainly to prove that Irishman down the aisle deserved to lose his teeth.”
Oh dear. Anyway, while Sony are pioneering this stuff, is there any chance they can kit out the refs with PSPs and instant replays? You know, so that they can stop completely fucking up so often.
