Sony sells Playstation-packing TV
Button bash a Bravia
All sorts of tech has been integrated into TVs from iPod docks to Blu-ray players, but now Sony has put a Playstation into one and it's available in the UK for under £200.
The Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 is a 22in LCD TV with a built-in PS2, which allows users to play classic games and watch DVDs. Old Playstation titles still play in standard definition but the 720p TV has four HDMI slots, includes a built-in Freeview tuner and an Ethernet port for internet video. With an additional dongle, it can go online wirelessly. It also has three USB sockets, plus Scart, VGA and component-video connectors.
PS3s haven't been backwards-compatible with the PS2 since some of Sony's very first models, and a Bravia HDTV with all those connections and a built-in PS2/DVD player is surely good value at that price.
Console-integrated televisions are uncommon, with Fuji Television's Sega Dreamcast based Divers 2000 Series CX-1  the only attempt we're aware of since Sharp teamed up with Nintendo in the early 1980s to bring us the C1 NES TV .
There were also rumours in 2008 that Samsung was set to partner Microsoft for an Xbox 360 integrated TV, but it never materialised.
The Bravia KDL-22PX300 is available for £200 from Richer Sounds  and comes with one controller. ®
