PlayStation 3 stations available at more airports than you'd expect

Summary:Way back in the cold months of January, Hong Kong International Airport installed Sony PlayStation 3 stations in their terminals. Stuff like this really makes that long period of waiting for a flight (especially if delayed) a bit more bearable.

I hoped this would become a common sight at international airports. I can report first-hand that if you ever happen to be stuck at Paris' Charles de Gaulle International Airport, you could look for one of these. As seen in the photo above (snapped by moi), there are multiple PS3 stations available. What is not seen is how many there are; I counted at least over a dozen in a single terminal.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good look at the prices nor the titles available given that I was almost late for my flight. (Darn Parisian traffic!) Hopefully, next time I'll actually get to try it out, but I wouldn't mind seeing other consoles available in airports as well. Perhaps a Nintendo Wii lounge?

What technology would you like to see more of in airports?
