Sony Shows 'Crossover' Video-Game Machine

Sony Shows 'Crossover' Video-Game Machine " Sony Corp. offered a preview Tuesday of its next-generation PlayStation, a hybrid gaming machine with digital media hub features: a TV tuner, DVD and hard-drive recording and photo album and music player functions.
The PSX faces competition from souped-up ``home entertainment'' computers made by various manufacturers that are powered by Microsoft Corp.'s Windows XP Media Center software, which includes similar functions.
Sony is banking on the popularity of the PlayStation2 -- which has sold 60 million worldwide, beating Nintendo Co.'s GameCube and Microsoft's Xbox -- to give itself an edge in the DVD recorder market over rivals in the electronics sector that don't have a game unit."
