PlayTV for PS3 Due Sept 10

Sony today established a final release date for its PlayTV tuner for the PlayStation 3. The add-on, once set for the end of June, is now set to launch on September 10th and is poised to gain additional functionality on its release: the shipping version will support recording TV shows even during gameplay. The device already supports dual DVB-T tuners and will capture one over-the-air digital channel while playing another live.

The PS3-centric device will be available both in the UK and mainland Europe for about 99 Euros ($157) on launch day. Sony also now promises a version for Australia and New Zealand in January or February of 2009 but hasn't announced a version for North America, which would need to switch to the ATSC broadcast standard for PlayTV to work properly.
