Like a tiny entertainment tank, the PS3’s relentless campaign to conquer the territory under your telly looks set to march on with its new black box of goggle box weaponry: PlayTV

The Play TV accessory houses a Freeview tuner, so you can pick up telly that the PS3 will upscale to 1080p hi-def and comes complete with time shifting and Freeview Playback features such as series link.  

You can record and even stream over the web to a PSP in a Wi-Fi hotspot anywhere in the world using the uber-cool Remote Play feature.

The EPG is typically PlayStation, with easy to navigate colour-coded menus, far removed from your plain, old, boring Sky guide.

So no excuses you have to stay in and watch Hollyoaks. You can watch it in the pub instead.
