This is the 1st time it has been confirmed that it can record while playing games - so thats good news as would have been a white elephant otherwise.

Its also great that you can transfer to a memory stich/external hardrive for viewing elsewhere and uploading to Home - Heroes Party anyone?

please tell mer if this means that we'll
get free tv channels?

its already free.. this is for europe.. that has lots of channels over the air for free (see antenna). So yes.. the only thing that will be paid for will be the box, and the channels are free.. like they always have been

I was own on this kit but finding that it can record while playing games makes me wanna buy it, well done Sony for ticking all the boxes.

I'd better upgrade my PS3 hard drive sharpish, 250GB sounds about right!
