Sony’s hybrid PS2 device that features a hard disk and TiVo-style TV recording options is to get an upgrade in Japan, July 1. The two new models retain most of the specifications of the original two PSX models, adding new recording options. These include constructing interactive menus during DVD recording, dividing recorded items into chapters and adjusting record quality between hard disk and DVD. The original models will get the functionality too via a firmware update. The PSX is scheduled to launch in Europe in 2004. It has not launched in the US yet.
