If you're shopping at the Third Street Promenade between now and November 12, make sure to stop and take a look at the latest pop-up store. No, it's not a clothing store, it's a spot dedicated to Sony's answer to the Nintendo Wii: the Playstation Move. While there, you'll have a chance to try out the new console and its various games, as well as enter to win one. But we recommend getting there early--this might wind up being the one spot on the Promenade more jam-packed on a weekend than the Apple Store. [Style Section LA]
