    Launched this week in Japan for about £450, one box complete with:

    Playstation 2 console
    Satellite TV tuner
    progressive scan DVD player
    DVD recorder
    HDD recorder with 160GB HDD as standard (up to 204 hours recording)
    Ethernet connection for internet/music/photo sharing from a PC


    Sounds quite nice? Should be coming to the west next year.

    Software is Sony's own, and supports downloading of an 'advanced EPG' over the network, but no more specific than that.

    Looks good.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but what does "Satellite TV tuner" mean?

    in Japan it'd be a BS satellite tuner - their standard over there.

    When it comes out over here, who knows what it'd have? maybe nothing, maybe freeview, maybe sky?

    Just an analogue tuner IIRC.

    Sounds (and looks) really nice!

    But, knowing the speed of technology lately, by the time its released, we'll probably have higher spec DVD recorders (dual layered) for half the cost. And the PS2 would be old hat.

    Still might buy one though. hehe...

    Paul.
