Could a games console sit at the heart of your lounge room?
Some people think consoles are just for playing games, but if you look a little closer you'll find Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 are very powerful entertainment devices. Even Nintendo's Wii has a few tricks up its sleeve. Movies, music, television, surfing the web - your modern games console lets you do it all, although there are a few catches.
The PlayStation 3 is obviously the home entertainment leader thanks to its built-in Blu-ray player. Along with this, Sony sells the PlayTV adaptor that turns the PS3 into a Personal Video Recorder for recording digital TV broadcasts. The icing on the cake is access to the ABC's iView service, with other services expected to follow as Sony expands its Bravia Internet Television platform.
