In an interesting tale of convergence, Sony Europe has dropped a £199 HD (720p) 22″ LCD HDTV that has a built in PlayStation 2 and DVD drive. Despite its small size, the small display has four HDMI ports, an ethernet connection, and Freeview tuner. The list goes on with three USB inputs, twin optical digital outputs, SCART, VGA and component ports. Another interesting aspect is the BRAVIA Internet Video capability, which is accessible via its two ethernet connections, or via a Wi-Fi USB adapter (UWABR100) sold by Sony. It has access to YouTube, Lovefilm, plus many other high quality content.
And of course there’s the fact you can play your PS2 discs on this TV. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? Gran Turismo 4? The package comes with a PS2 controller, too. That is pretty a pretty feature packed television for £199. Apparently the KDL-22PX300 is sold exclusively at UK retailer Richer Sounds, but its entirely possible this TV will be available elsewhere in due time.
