TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Corp (news - web sites) (6758.T), the world's biggest consumer electronics maker, said on Friday it would unveil its all-in-one PSX game device to the public next week.
The PSX, which packs a TV tuner, DVD recorder, hard-disk drive, and the PlayStation 2 (news - web sites) game player into a single white box, will be unveiled at the CEATEC Japan 2003 industry show in Makuhari, near Tokyo, on Tuesday, Sony said in a statement.
Sony plans to launch the machine in Japan before the end of this year, and in Europe and the United States early next year, but a spokesman for Sony said on Friday the exact launch timetable and pricing were yet to be decided.
Some analysts have expressed concerns the PSX could eat into demand for other Sony products at a time when the company is suffering from sluggish sales of its Vaio PCs and home electronics goods.
Sony shares were up 1.28 percent at 3,950 yen in early afternoon trading, compared with a 0.50 percent rise in the benchmark Nikkei average. View Article Here
