Playstation 2 Gets TiVo-Like Powers

from the sounds-good dept

Ever since Microsoft started working on both the Xbox and UltimateTV there have been rumors flying around about how they would eventually combine the two (which they have almost done in the process of killing UltimateTV). People said that the Playstation 2 was still just a console, but the Xbox would become a platform. Well, thanks to Sony’s new network adaptor for the Playstation 2, suddenly some companies are able to add TiVo-like functionality to the Playstation 2. This is, of course, a good thing in general. It will be interesting to see if Sony ends up including such functionality themselves, since they already have a relationship with TiVo.
