There Are 100,000 PlayTVs In Australian Homes

Sony today announced that their PVR add-on for the PS3 has sold over 100,000 units in Australia since it launched in late November last year. To celebrate, they're dropping the price by 20 bucks.

As of today, the PlayTV will have an RRP of $150, making it a cost effective option for anyone looking to record Live TV to their PS3's hard drive. Sony have also promised a live chat feature for PlayTV by the end of the month that will let you text chat to other PlayTV users.

100,000 is a huge milestone for a peripheral like the PlayTV. Considering 75% of the Playstation's functionality has been added since it launched, if nothing else, the 100,000 figure proves the versatility of Sony's console.
