OMG! That's the strangest thing I've ever seen!

I'm sure that's just Sony taking the piddle. They're still very sore at us over not buying Betamax, so now EVERYTHING's going to come with a VHS recorder FOREVER! :roflmao:

Wot's that all about? And analogue terrestrial?!

I'm also very intimidated by that scary looking remote...

Very interesting though. Thanks for sharing

Thanks m8.

G B O X is translated by the forum software automatically as it also refers to a card-sharing CAM emulator.

G B O X tends to get the authorities all excited and emotional. We translate it so that the search engines don't drag them all here

Certainly sounds intriguing!

Can't get that second link to work though
