Can I purchase one of these and use it on my TV? I need to upgrade from my VCR lol.

SO when do we get one of these in the US?

Godmars2902709d ago

As soon as there's one national cable company. Japan and the UK have one basic cable channel, so PlayTV and Trone work there. The only reason the 360 is getting a VCR is because you have to get U-verse, and chances are USA network and a dozen other cable networks are going to end up complaining if not banning 360 access.

No need for a national cable company. Protocols are standardized and decoder cards should be available on request. The cable companies sure try to hide this info somewhere in the smallprint, though.

Is THIS one actually available in the US?

Edit: Woah. Eerily similar comments. Both with a caps-word and ending in "in the US?"

This basically PlayTV then?

Over 5 million PS3s in Japan, its been at least a year - six months? - I honestly expect the numbers to be higher. Closer to a million if not past the half million mark.

Just saying.

It came out about 6 months ago.

I'm surprised the numbers aren't higher too. It's a great piece of kit. We use ours pretty much every day.

Still, 400K aint sloppy.

I think it's respectable, considering the Japanese install base. Peripherals like this are kind of a niche thing, anyway.
