CNN reports on Sony’s all-in-one game console and entertainment system, which it plans to retail in Japan for USD 719.
The PSX would feature a satellite TV tuner, DVD recorder, hard disk drive (HDD) recorder and PlayStation 2 (PS2) game player. A version with a 160-gigabyte HDD will be able to record up to 204 hours of television.
Sony plans to market the PSX as a consumer electronics product and aims to pitch the box as a do-everything entertainment console for games, music and movies.
Sony needs to big hit to revive its sagging fortunes. Many others are now crossing the barriers into the consumer electronics and entertainment segment – notably, Nokia and Dell.
