In case you haven't heard about this, Sony are releasing a new convergence product called the PSX. No, it's not a reissue of the venerable Playstation (often called the PSX, erroneously). The PSX combines video gaming, DVD and PVR into one unit. It can write to recordable DVD (DVD-R, DVD-RW & DVD+RW) in addition to its internal hard disk. U.S. pricing has not been set yet, but in Japan it starts at around $700.
The set is very intriguing. Hopefully, Sony will make a wireless controller for it. Corded controllers are less desireable, especially given that the PSX is supposed to function as a set-top box and not just a video game console. Personally, I don't like corded controllers any longer, having used the excellent Nintendo Wavebird for many months now.
Gamespy have a short blurb on the unit here including a picture.
