A PlayStation 3 Pack For Couch Potatoes

By Spencer . June 20, 2011 . 1:58am

imageSony is rolling out a PlayStation 3 revision and a new PS3 bundle. The upcoming slim PS3 model uses less electricity than previous models and is a bit lighter. Otherwise, it’s the same system already in people’s homes. Sony’s greener console will be available in Japan later this month as a 320 GB model for 34,980 yen ($436).


On June 30, TV buffs can pick up a PlayStation 3 HDD (hard disk drive) recorder pack, which includes a 320 GB console plus the Torne TV recorder for 35,980 yen ($448). This accessory plugs into a TV and saves shows to the PS3 hard drive. Torne even has trophies like "drama master" which you get for watching ten shows classified as dramas and an award for watching TV for over 100 hours.

    ten shows classified as dramas and an award for watching TV for over 100

    The easiest to get trophies ever, for me that is~

    • Is it accumulation of 100 hours? Or marathon? That would be crazy though.. Lol..

      • zweii

        100 hours is nothing. I did a One Piece marathon thrice now. And i been known to marathon korean teledramas if we have the DVD set.

  • Judo

    But…I don’t watch TV! =o

    • I feel you; the lack of instantly accessible contemporary intelligent shows make me depend on the internet as my main source of entertainment, to the point I only watch TV to watch Yankee games.

    • Chow

       That won’t be a problem for me!

      Of course, I play my PS3 while simultaneously watching TV, resulting in a paradox. O_o

  • ninjaonizuka

    cudnt u just leave ur TV on if u reely want the trophies xD and thts a kool idea sony :3

  • How about a trophy for eating 50 bags of potato chips? (Playstation Eye required)

  • Ah yes, a way to reward my terrible TV habit.

  • @Playstation:twitter #SCEA, bring this over, so that we’d have an alternative to DVR.
