News: Here's a good news story for Friday.




Update: Because of this article and the dozens of blogs it spread to, Sony presented Matty Lovo with a PS3.

If you were watching cable news yesterday, you probably saw a story about 9-year-old Matty Lovo saving his father, Matt Lovo, who passed out behind the wheel of his tractor-trailer. Carrying more than 100,000 pounds of weight behind him, young Matty took control of the big rig and called for help via CB radio despite never having been behind the wheel of a car. Help came from another driver who hopped in to turn off the truck and steer it back to safety.

Without Matty's quick effort, he, his father and others could've been seriously injured. CNN's Kyra Phillips asked him if he thought he was a hero and he unabashedly answered ?Yeah.? So, what is the young, self-described hero of nine going to do now? ?He keeps telling me he thinks he needs his PlayStation 3 now for a reward,? his father answered for him.

The CNN interview ended with Rob Marciano, Kyra Phillips' co-anchor in the afternoon, saying that he can't even figure his out, to which Phillips suggested he give his PS3 to Matty. Way to put the man and his $500 console on the spot.

This story leaves us with two realizations: 1) Matty Lovo deserves a PS3 so that he can save the day virtually this time and 2) Rob Marciano is one of those people who owns a PS3, yet can't figure out HD and doesn't know backwards compatibility is a standard feature.



Another video interview with Matty Lovo is here, while the transcript of the Phillips interview in which PS3 is referenced is below.
