Sony announces PVR add-on for PS3

PS3 PVRWe knew this was coming, but we didn't expect it so soon. Today Sony announced the PlayTV, a combination dual digital TV tuner and personal video recorder for the Playstation3. The two tuners are HDTV ready, and can handle video up to 1080p.

The PlayTV will be available in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain early next year. The digital TV tuner uses the DVB-T format and is built for European use. There's no word whether an ATSC or NTSC version will be released in the US anytime soon.

The PlayTV will let users watch live TV or record programs for watching or transferring to a Playstation Portable. It's not clear whether there will be DRM restrictions that prevent you from transferring recordings to a PC or other portable device.

Well, that's a start at least, but, I'll be waiting for the dual tuner DVB-S version though.
