Sony Offering DVR Add-On to PS3s in Europe
Sony has added digital-video recording functionality to the Playstation 3 console in Europe, with the capability of downloading to the PlayStation Portable (PSP) mobile device, the Wall Street Journal reported from Tokyo Wednesday.
Called “PlayTV,” the add-on device will initially be released in five European countries- France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the U.K.- in early 2008. No plans have been announced for a U.S. release of the device, but according to a report on Wired magazine’s Web site, the company is “investigating” the possibility of introducing an American counterpart.
The announcement came at a video gaming conference in Leipzig, Germany.
