Here's your explanation:
It's bullshit. According to the official website:
Near is the social networking app on the PS Vita that allows you to check in to real life locations and pick-up and or leave gifts for other gamers to find and use in their games. You can also locate and connect with your PlayStation®Network friends and other gamers nearby. With near you can check out which games are the most popular and highest rated by fellow gamers near your location.
Through near your location can be calculated through Wi-Fi hot spots or in 3G models, with use of GPS technology which is an exclusive capability of the 3G model. Be the first to find these valuable game gifts by logging into near via 3G and not waiting to get to a WiFi hot spot.
"Near" is a very relative term. They never specify how "near" it has to be, so they can take liberties with the numbers.

That or near = whole world, which is near, in comparison to the moon or Mars.

This fall, I expect Wii U to come out in mid October, just in time for games like Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty 21 and other major third party games to be released day and date with their PS3/360 counterparts instead of waiting until mid November. As for software, expect a Wii U _____ pack-in like before, perhaps with a racing game on shelves, F-Zero maybe, and probably a game starring a franchise (besides Zelda) that is highly regarded so all the 3rd parties can bitch that only Nintendo games sell on Nintendo consoles AGAIN.

Was the part Cheapy rage quit on the area whereSpoilerThat part sucked and took some tries. Now that I think about it, that was the hardest part of ME3 I had.

Wombat - I tried to hook you up when I saw you were at the Wilderness lodge. A family member of mine is one of the managers. The room either wasn't in your name or you were checked out by the time they tried to look you up.
Ah, thanks! The room was in my father in laws name, so I would have been hard to find. Next Time!

Remember this thing will finally be able to play hardcore games in HD, for myself I can get this a PS4 and with my computer be able to have the greatest variety in games.
Also I again agree with Ship that "From Ashes" should have been included since it gives FANS of the series a great service.

Just remember, simply having Mario isn't a measure of success. The Gamecube still had a Mario game, Mario Kart, Mario Party, Pokemon, Luigi, Metroid, Zelda, etc, and still couldn't break 25 million in worldwide sales (again, WIKI numbers).
The Wii left a sour taste in everyone's mouth. Nintendo's marketing and PR is what will sell this console, but they will have to work their ass off to get people interested in the system again.
Also, as I'm still listening to the podcast, the shield cerberus agents in ME3. I use the particle beam rifle to kill them. They have a little slot in the shield, and I take them out shooting between the little slot near where the head would be. Not sure how regular weapons with ammo would be, but you could shoot them that way. I know there's a trophy for it, so I think there should be an achievement for it as well for killing enough of those guys in that way. It's not too hard to do.

Wombat is hilarious and there should be a higher WBQ (Wombat Quotient) in the next episode. Also: more poop stories.

In regards to kinect calling out ammo selection in ME3, I just find it quite amusing because it reminds me of one of features of Judge Dredd's handgun.
