PS3 already gives your family next-generation gaming, Blu-ray movies, music, video, web browsing and PLAYSTATION Network support all in one unit. Now, with PlayTV, it has the functionality of a state-of-the-art TV tuner and PVR its great value and its one more reason to make PS3 the centre of your family entertainment.
Two TV tuners: watch one programme while recording another.
Electronic Programme Guide: a seven-day navigation interface that makes it easy to programme and watch PlayTV. Its lightning fast and simple to use with either PS3s SIXAXIS controller or the Blu-ray Remote Control.
Watch, pause and rewind live TV: TV programmes now operate at the viewers convenience. Just hit the pause button to take a break without missing a thing and rewind any bits to watch over and over again.
Portable viewing with PSP: Seamless PSP connectivity allows you to set recordings remotely and to watch live TV streamed on your PSP wherever you are via a WiFi connection (using Remote Play feature).
Record TV: while you're playing games on your PS3
a good price comparison but a quick web search for the PS3 seems to show that it uses £180 PER YEAR IN ELECTRICITY CHARGES.
Methinks your average Freeview PVR would use maybe £20 at most.
edit - seems that was idle power costs. If it wakes up from standby it will be a lot less.
A very high power requirement for watching though.
