Sony has told Eurogamer that PlayTV will not allow saved video files be transferred to PSP, PC or Memory Stick.

Instead, the PS3 TV recorder will only be able to stream live or recorded content to your PSP using Remote Play functionality.

Sony Cambridge, the studio making the software for PlayTV, had told us there was no copy protection or time restrictions on the standard format recordings, which could be moved freely onto all manner of storage devices.

No reason for the change of heart was given.

We were also told that PlayTV will not record HD signals at launch, and that Sony is working on making this feature possible in the future.

PlayTV will launch on 19th September for GBP 69.99.
