311w ago - Sony has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that PlayTV has shipped 85,000 units to retailers in the UK.

The hardware add-on, which acts as a freeview box and personal video recorder, went on sale last weekend and retails for GBP 69.99.

Pre-orders for the peripheral were around 9,000 according to Sony. Momentum is building in the run up to Christmas, with specialist and national press giving thumbs up to the device, which strengthens the PlayStation 3's status as a multimedia hub for the living room.

Again, that's only numbers for the UK... The hardware is being rolled-out across the rest of Europe until December, but there are currently no plans to release PlayTV in the US.

Are there any solutions for US PS3 owners to turn their setup into a DVR?
No.. you could record on your pc and transfer it to your ps3, but as far as recording on your ps3 there is no input device available here to input video for recording.

we will have to wait and see if it is released here.

Yeah I got mine three days after ordering it from play.com. Its the cheapest place that I have found to buy it. £10 cheaper than game or hmv.
