PlayTV – Sony's PVR and digital TV tuner for PS3


Just revealed a few minutes ago at the Leipzig Games Conference, this is Sony’s next big hope for PlayStation3 – a digital TV tuner that adds PVR features to PS3.


It features two “HD Ready” TV tuners so you can record Top Gear while the wife watches UK Living, plus it can transfer – or even stream live – TV shows to PSP for watching while on the go, or while stationary on the toilet.

It’s fully compatible with the DVB-T digital terrestrial format, and should start rolling out across PAL territories from, according to Sony, early 2008.
