PSX Now PS3 Soon

Sony unveiled its "PSX" entertainment system and revealed it will include a satellite TV tuner and DVD recorder plus its PlayStation 2 game player. The company also unveiled the new system's significant price tag which is set at a minimum of 79,800 yen (USD 719).
In order to justify such a price Sony has included an HDD recorder in the unit. The above mentioned price will apply to the units featuring a 160-gigabyte HDD which will be able to record up to 204 hours of television. A 250-gigabyte version will also be available for 99,800 yen. There is no timetable for an overseas PSX launch, Sony said.

The new product will also attempt to keep consumers busy while preparing for the launch of Sony's new console the PS3. This could also create a problem for Sony however, since many will choose to wait for the new games machine rather than invest such a large sum of money on a unit whose core is based on the now aging PS2.

There is the game industry and game development and we are trying to fuse the consumer electronics business with games to make a new growth area, said Sony Chief Executive Nobuyuki Idei.
While Sony were launching their new product another attempt at fusion was being launched. Nokia introduced their N-Gage games console/cell phone/mp3 player etc. These moves mark the latest trend in the electronics industry which is to utilize the success of video games in order to sell other electronic devices and services as well.

Sony also plans to enter the portable game device market next year with its PSP, which will also play music and movies.

Although the price of the PSX does, initially, seem extravagant, many analysts claim that considering the hardware on offer in the PSX, its price sounds very cheap.

Most visitors to the exhibition in Japan were the PSX was introduced, claim that the lack of new gaming features in the PSX, make it less of a temptation.

It is widely accepted that the PSX is planned to contribute financially to the company's upcoming PS3 console. Although Sony has not announced any date for the release of PS3, the company has indicated it plans to commit 500 billion yen over the next three years in semiconductors, including research and development for the high-powered microprocessor codenamed cell which is being developed with Toshiba and IBM and is expected to be the driving force behind PS3. Sony have very high hopes for cell and it is expected that they will try and introduce it as the next standard for consumer electronics.

As much as i like my PS2, i aint gonna buy one of these, its better to buy a Ps2 and a DVD Recorder seperately, but then again it is a good price considering a decent stand alone dvd recorder that records 106 hours on HDD is £999.99

Just wanted to remind you guys that even standalone DVD recorders for a TV dont come cheap, plus the 160 Gb hard drive that's included make this thing WAY better than replay TV/TIVO, all this PLUS the standard PS2 to boot! Now I'm not saying that its a good deal, and im not about to run out and get it, but keep in mind that there really are plenty of enthusiasts out there who would go for any kind of new gadgets that are available, especially those that are feature packed without even looking at the price! Remember all those people who were willing to shell out a better part of $1000 on ebay when all the PS2 systems were sold out at launch? Nobody thought that it would happen back then either, but it did!

Another xbox. Every sony fanboy joked how the xbox was just another pc. Now the ps2 is no different. Just buy a dvd player and a decent pc with a ati all in wonder card. Console add ons NEVER sell well. Never has in the past and never will.

Well. That's Damn expensive. Funny though, because it looks like an albino PS. Still, according to psychodynamic theory, by age 3, male and female development diverges dramatically...Meow, now I'm a cat drinking milk. Meow meow.

Everyone is so stupid and blind, the xbox os the best console out right now and everyone knows it but won't admit it. And when Xbox2 comes out it will again beat the ps3 or psx or what ever.

MILK! Meow. Cat's favourite...Purrr *Slurp* *Slurp* purrrr (BARF!!! Soy Milk!!!)Ya no, "Live in your world, PAY in ours" should be their slogan! They're obviously behind deadline with their new system and released this odd 'neither-here-nor-there' mumbo-jumbo to keep the punters happy and keep their minds off what's actually happening...sounds a lot like what politicians do, actually...(?)Still, at least they haven't forgotten that we're all waiting with bated breath for their new delicious system to find its way into our lounges!

HAHA, i laugh at those picking on Sony. They obviously dont know much about consoles. Simply put i already have a computer and will not buy the terrible XBOX. I cant wait until PS3 comes out because it will be great. Final words are that if your going to pick on Sony you should know the facts first and that not to trust Microsoft as they are skum.

For thouse who love their TV, buy a f**kin dish and VCR. 250GB is crap.

PSX Now PS3 Soon

Haha too late no one will spend this much on a psx when for less you will be able to go out and buy a PC with media edition on which will do all this and more.For Sony fans if you think SOny has a chance against MS when it comes to making an all in one box you are going to be very disapointed.MS already have an all in one media centre ready to go they just delayed it because certain parties ie the movie industry went nuts as it can copy dvd's.

PSX Now PS3 Soon

Yeah i think that maybe the PSX would have to remove their dvd recorder .... cause the x box first had on cd recorder and they were forced to remove it ... so ...and the price is f**king high...Thanks

PSX Now PS3 Soon

they never riped on ms for using a HDD you moron, a few months after the release of ps2 they polled people in japan if they wanted a HDD for the ps2, so now (much later) they are going to rlease a HDD for the ps2. your really need to get all the facts before you start making acusations you dipshit

PSX Now PS3 Soon

Some companies put an X on the end of their product to make it sound "extreme" but usually when there is an X its seen as the roman numeral for ten, i think this is a mistake sony will grow to regret, they should have just called it PS3.

PSX Now PS3 Soon

you need to get your facts straight the ps2 is fairly similar in its specs to a xbox but you don't call one of them a aging old piece. they are heaps better than a gamecube and gamecubes don't even play dvd's. i think that ms and sony are idiots for trying to make computers out of gaming consoles.

PSX Now PS3 Soon

xbox 2 is going to use the halflife2 engine, ps3 is not going to come close because their new engine isnt even that good but xbox has those gay controlls but hey, for those gfx i wouldnt care!just wait
