Sony shoots down UK PlayTV date and price

Sony has responded to a listing on HMV’s website pertaining to the UK release of its forthcoming PlayTV service, insisting that the company has yet to issue launch details to retailers.

The listing in question put the TV accessory for release on March 28, priced at GBP 99.99/EUR 130.

However, speaking to Eurogamer today, a Sony spokesperson stated, “We have not confirmed the price and release date of PlayTV to anyone, and that includes retailers.”

PlayTV allows users to record television broadcasts by utilizing the PlayStation 3’s hard drive. The device is scheduled for release in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, and will not be restricted by copy protection.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
