PlayTV to launch this September

Priced at EUR 99.

David Reeves has announced that PlayTV will launch in September, priced at EUR 99 (equivalent to around GBP 80).

For that you'll get a little black box that will allow you to record TV shows on the PS3's hard disk and watch another TV channel at the same time. Each programme you store can be exported to the XMB and stored there with other videos.

You can also watch content using Remote Play, according to Reeves. But will you be able to play a game on your PS3 at the same time as it's recording telly? The Sony boss didn't say.

He had plenty else to chat about, however - read all about it in our live text of today's PlayStation Day conference. For more on PlayTV, check out our recent preview.
