Next-Gen PlayStation Doubles as TV Tuner

Sony officially unveiled the next generation of its PlayStation videogame player at CEATEC in Japan this week.

PlayStation PSX will be available in Japan later this year for about $720 and features an analog TV tuner, a 160 GB hard drive that can record 200 hours of digital video, a slot for a Sony memory stick to display digital photos and a music player. The company said PSX would go on sale in the U.S. and Europe in 2004.
