Yep, it's Sony's PlayTV, and it has recently been reviewed on video by Stuff's Ruth Owen.

We'd go into elaborate detail about exactly what she thinks, but then you might be discouraged from actually clicking through and hearing her most delightful accent. So we won't.

Video can be seen below. Enjoy All.

PlayStation 3 Trophy News Direct from Leipzig

300°
296w ago - Good evening everyone, I hope everyone's week has been full of joy... well, let us put a little more joy in your life.

As some of you know, a few of us are attending the Leipzig Games Convention this week and including some developer walkthroughs with various publishers, and we managed to ask the age old question to keep all you Trophy hunters happy:

Will your title support Trophies?

And here is the general consensus... I'll warn you now though, the day started badly for Sony's Trophy system, but certainly got better throughout the day.

- Prince of Persia - No Trophy support
- HAWX - Trophy support confirmed
- Shaun White's Snowboard - Trophy support confirmed
- Borderlands - Trophy support confirmed
- Spider Man: Web of Shadows - Probably not because it was too late in the development stage to add them in.
- Far Cry 2 - Trophy support confirmed
- EndWar - Trophy support confirmed
- Quantum of Solace - Trophy support confirmed
- Call of Duty: World at War - Trophy support confirmed
- Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon - Trophy support confirmed

So there you have it, as the holiday period approaches, more and more titles get Trophy support. Unfortunately the impressive looking Prince of Persia will not, but surely...
 

PlayStation 3 exclusive Savage Moon revealed, due November 2008

296w ago - A PlayStation 3 exclusive known as Savage Moon was announced a short while ago, but very little was known about it up until today.

To quote: Armed with a fearsome array of defensive weapons, your mission is to take your choice of the finest armaments known to humankind and keep the facility safe by strategically placing these guns which then automatically fire at their targets.

Will you select the dependable rapid-fire machine gun? The intimidating Chaos Tower? Or opt for another item taken from the range of destructive weaponry at your disposal? Choose carefully, as each one has to be manually positioned for the greatest effectiveness in destroying the increasing waves of monstrous insects.

You are the only hope left on this Savage Moon.

* Upgrade your weapons to increase their size and firepower, and research even more devastating technologies to aid your mission
* Devise your defence from a massive array of strategies - choose power over speed, or block routes to put the space...
