Eurogamer: PlayTV Review

Review by Tom Bramwell:

"As we're frequently told, we ain't seen nothing yet. PlayStation 3 (and Xbox 360) can go a lot further than the pictures and sounds we're seeing and hearing in even the very best games. Never mind Killzone 2 and LittleBigPlanet, says Sony, just you wait for the games released in the two years after that.

If you find that difficult to believe, just pick up PlayTV, which acts as a Freeview box and personal video recorder (PVR), but also allows you to schedule TV recordings and then go back to gaming, watching a Blu-ray, or staring forlornly at the PlayStation Store shelves. Perhaps not the most demanding bit of multitasking ever, but a useful, invisible friend if ever you want one."

well you can say not yet but just to be very very safe: NEVER!!!

"but no amount of artfully premeditated lifestyle photography can disguise the fact that it has to plug into the front of the PS3, where the USB ports are, and hang around messily on the floor."

shame the reviewer doesn't realise he can get an 99 cents USB extension lead and run it behind his PS3. schoolboy error.

I think we will see movement on this if it does well in Europe, I would think after Feb 17 we will hear something about a NA release.

As for the above, the less than thoughtful person says never and totally slams the door. The thoughtful person looks at the technology and says possibly.

When is USA release date?

beavis4play3730d ago

if (as the article says) i think about ps3 games 2 years after KZ2.......i think my head will explode from the possibilities.

How is it a bargain to pay 100 euro for a freeview add-on for a games console? Don't you already get freeview?

And if you have Sky+ or V+ then its even more a waste of money

RobertoYNWA3730d ago

looks cool, but are there any freeview boxes out there that record for less than £70?
