Basically the same thing my modded XBOX is (with 120Gig HD), except for the added TV tuners and recorders… And I paid much much less than $719!!!

Let’s do the math (and very roughly so since there aren’t any details): 1 satellite tuner e200 1 160Gb HD e150 1 dvd burner e200 1 ps2 e179 that totals to e729, so at the very least it sounds like a reasonable price. And bear in mind that they’re all Sony parts, so all these items (except the HD) bought seperately will cost a bit more than this (since I didn’t bother to find Sony parts/prices in the above list ;))

Spar, actually it would be more reasonable to calculate it as: 1. Settop DVD/HDD Recorder 2. Sattelite Tuner 3. PS2 4. PS2 BroadBand Unit If you total that up all together it would be like 1400 US Dollars.

When mod chips will be available this could be a really versatile entertainment machine at a good price :g We have to wait and see the software, both official and homebrew, that will be available for this little monster. :stuck_out_tongue:
