  1. Sony will launch its PSX entertainment system, which combines a satellite TV tuner, a DVD recorder and a PlayStation 2 game player, in Japan later this year at a minimum price equivalent to $719 (photo).

    As much as I like buying those things that combine a lot of stuff into 1, it scares me. What do you do if one of those components fails? YOu have to send the whole thing in to get repaired, and then you lose out on everything that you were using on it. But I guess that is the price you pay sometimes when you want the best of the best.

    Seems way overpriced.... I mean it's basically a Sony Xbox.

    For $179 you can buy a Microsoft Xbox with built in ethernet adapter, hard drive, DVD player ($30 option), etc. Only thing it's missing is the ability to record satellite TV, but for $99 you can buy a DirecTivo receiver. Not even getting into the fact of hardware and graphic quality of the PS2 versus Xbox.

    Maybe I'm missing something...

    i wonder if this is going to be those japan-only gadgets. the projected price seems kinda steep if they are planning to sell a lot in the america.
