While you can use your standard dual shock controller, Sony does bundle in a more TV friendly remote, although in use and it still takes a little bit of getting used to, especially if you are used to the Sky Plus remote."
The good: Easy to install, easy to use interface
The bad: No Series link support, no HD support, can't record two programs at once
Verdict: Our play might have only been brief, but on the surface so far, it's not looking positive compared to the set top box competition
