    Sony's all-in-one entertainment - is it worth the hefty price-tag?
    By Ben Turner

    Today, Sony announced pricing and other details on its upcoming multimedia entertainment device called PSX.

    The PSX will debut in Japan in the fall, with two models available at launch. The DESR-5000 will feature a 160 gigabyte (GB) hard drive and retail for 79,800, or a little over $700. The higher-end DESR-7000 will have a cavernous 250GB disk and sell for 98,000 (a hair under $900). The casing will come in at least three different colors, including red, blue and yellow.

    While the PSX can play PlayStation 2 games, the extra cost of the unit comes from its DVD recording and TV tuning features. The DVD drive can record to DVD-R and DVD-RW at up to 24x, and will have the ability to burn to DVD+RWs after a downloadable firmware upgrade is made available. The PSX can also record television programming to its hard drive, effectively making it a TiVo-like "time shifting" device.

    There are currently no specifics concerning the PSX's American release, other than a vague "2004." Given its high price and lack of game-enhancing features, it looks like the PSX will be of greater interest to home electronics buffs than core game fans.
