Sony Donate 1000 PS3s To Low Income Regions
Posted on November 24, 2009 by Shak

Sony Computer Entertainment America has partnered with the MacArthur Foundation to improve education via digital media with a $2 million open competition. The $2 million annual open competition seeks proposals from designers, inventors, researchers and others interested in using digital media to transform learning. The competition opens Dec. 14 and winners will be announced in Spring 2010.

“Scientists and engineers ought to stand side by side with athletes and entertainers as role models,” President Obama said, “and here at the White House we’re going to lead by example. We’re going to show young people how cool science can be.”

Sony's donation of 1000 PS3s + copies of LittleBigPlanet will be part of the "Game Changers" category of the competition. Winners in the Game Changers category will receive awards for creative new games or for additions to Sony's LittleBigPlanet. These games and game expansions should offer young people highly engaging game play experiences that incorporate principles of science, technology, engineering and math.

Sony also have promised that they will also make the winning levels available to the LittleBigPlanet community at no cost. For more information on the contest, please visit the official website at
