Trapped in a Mine for Weeks? Here’s a PSP for You!

How about a PSP? Gaming blog Kotaku reports that along with the supplies, the miners are being given Sony’s PlayStation Portable gaming devices on cups to pass the time. Although the battery conks out in six hours, it’s the overall feeling of goodness that comes with gaming that counts!
