Now here’s something I didn’t expect to see. Not in 2010, at least…but maybe three or four years ago. Sony has just released a budget-priced Bravia LCD TV in Europe which has a PlayStation 2 built-in.
The screen size (22 inch) and 720p maximum resolution setting is probably going to stop people buying it for a main set, but it’s ideal for the kid’s bedroom or the spare room. The KDL-22PX300 – as it’s known – also has an Ethernet allowing owners to watch YouTube, Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and three USB ports, four HDMI port and PC input.
Of course, because it includes a PlayStation 2 it can play CDs and DVDs straight out of the box. Richer Sounds looks like being the best place to pick one up – it’s £199 on their site.
