Sony working on 'major' PlayTV update

PS3's TV tuner due for software revamp

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Sony raised UK gamers' hopes yesterday with the promise of a "major" update to the PlayStation 3's PlayTV add-on, only to dash them by announcing that the key new feature will be Facebook integration.

A company blogger also pledged that "other great enhancements to PlayTV and brand new features will also be included in the update", so we can but hope it won't be so disappointing after all.

Aren't there enough PCs, netbooks, phones, PMPs etc out there that already tie into users' Twitbook accounts?

However, gamers keen to update their 'walls' with details of what they're watching will be pleased, we're sure, though their joy will be tempered by the news that the update won't appear until "towards the end of the 2010".

Judging by the comments posted in response to the announcement, what users really want is the ability to record and entire series of programmes.

Others want HD, though since the PlayTV supports Freeview's DVB-T service but not Freeview HD's DVB-T2 technology, that's not going to happen without a new box. ®
