Details on Sony's new PlayTV for Europe


There are more details emerging all the time for the new PlayTV tuner and DVR announced for the PS3. The unit will apparently be coming to Europe "early in 2008" with other territories to follow. The new box will feature two 1080p tuners, which utilize the European Digital Video Broadcasting system (DVB-T) -- so that makes a US version unlikely. The system will allow you to store recorded broadcasts on your PS3 drive, and also transcode and transfer the saved files to your PSP. Additionally, you'll be able to use the PSP's "Remote Play" feature to program and watch your PlayTV away from home.

What we don't like is the amount of storage - we're talking maybe 5 hours or so of recording time. And why no US version? I'd really like to have this for my PS3 - besides Heavenly Sword or the upcoming games - it's just sitting there.
