For me this would mean one less box under the tv as I could get rid of my freeview receiver (set top box). It would also mean I could record one show whilst watching another (something I can't do currently but would be quite nice)
This would also negate any reason for me needing to buy a HTPC to do the above job.
Hopefully the price will be nice.
EDIT: Just thought of something, I assume this would connect to the PS3 via USB? If so then why couldn't Sony have put a USB port on the back of the console (ie like microsoft did). I don't like seeing cables coming out of the front of the console if I can help it.
