No Restriction For PS3’s Play TV Recording

Sony have revealed that any shows you record on PlayTV – the upcoming digital TV set-top box thingamabob for PS3 – will be saved in raw format, thus letting you do anything you want with them once saved to the PS3’s hard disk. Well, “Anything you like, really, as long as you do it legally,” say Sony.

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,” comment Sony. “So hopefully users won’t do stuff they shouldn’t do with it.

Transfer to your PC or external hard drive and save? Sounds good to us! Covert and watch on iPod? Even better! Upload a new torrent? No that’s bad, don’t do that you illegal person!
