Default PS3 DVR - Copy media anywhere

This is a great move by Sony, even though it won't do us any good in the US. For you guys over the pond though, this is a really good development!

For the first time in a long time, we want to grab Sony and kiss them square on the lips. Because PlayTV, the PlayStation 3's DVR/PVR (that's not coming to the States yet), will record television to MPEG2 files that can be easily copied off the system to any storage medium you'd like. That's right, no DRM.

But can Sony do such things legally? According to their producer Mark Bunting, it's fair game:

We've talked to our legal department about it. All we're doing is moving it out of PlayTV and to the cross-media bar as if it was any other recording. So hopefully users won't do stuff they shouldn't do with it...If I'm prohibited from getting the recording off and storing it somewhere else because some other dude is making money out of selling it, then I'd rather they brought the law in to catch those people.

Hallelujah! Someone ring a bell so Sony gets its wings. [eurogamer via kotaku]
**EDIT** It's also pretty sweet it can stream to the PSP via WIFI as well!

That kind of functionality is not legal in the USA.

Another step closer to ditching my LG DVR. It has a mind of it's own, though, can't beat the picture it outputs to my TV.

The funtionality is NOT why it is not coming to the US. The product is based off of free sattelite tv that they have in Europe, which the US doesn't have, thus we will not see this in the US.
