Sony TV tuner for PSP
Accompanying the slim PSP, Sony's SCEI gaming division has also announced a new digital TV tuner add-on for the handheld console. The plug-in adapter receives Japan's 1Seg digital broadcast networks and also includes a new electronic program guide that keeps tabs on current and upcoming shows without interrupting the show at hand. The tuner is said to require the newer PSP design and goes on sale at the same September 20th launch for a price equal to $57; a US release is unexpected and would require a switch to MediaFLO TV networks.
