Amazon PlayTV claims dismissed

Sony has said that its upcoming PS3 Freeview tuner PlayTV is not being lined up for a European launch this July, with its actual shelf date remaining TBC.

Amazon yesterday listed the device for launch on July 31st, with a price of just 59.99, though both the date and price have since been removed.

Speaking to Eurogamer, a Sony spokesperson stated: "We have yet to announce a release date and price for PlayTV, and do not comment on rumour or speculation.”

PlayTV was announced at last year’s Leipzig Games Convention, though MCV correctly predicted the announcement months beforehand.

The device will allow users to transform their PS3s into fully functional PVRs (personal video recorders) that can record, pause and rewind live TV.
