SONY PSP 1Seg Digital TV Tuner Hands-On

Last Thursday, after coming back from the Tokyo Game Show, we were pleased to see that Sony Computer Entertainment sent us a little package… and we were more surprised to see that it was in fact a NEW PSP with the New 1Seg TV Tuner… WOW they are so nice at SCE !
So immediately we decided to play a little bit with this wonder, and especially the 1SEG TV Tuner. And we have to admit that they did a pretty good job; the 1Seg integration is very well done, and the TV quality is among the best I ever seen for a 1Seg tuner so far… So if you are in Japan, and if you are interested in watching the crappy Japanese TV, you should maybe consider this new Combo from SONY.

Anyway here you are, over 20 pictures of the set; enjoy !

    Very nice indeed, but maybe a little to big

  • SirJeannot

    we’re going to need a lot of pockets to carry all the accessories on the go ^_^

  • Unlogik

    Japanese TV is not “crappy”. You just have to catch it at the right time!

    PS – The new 1seg is beautiful, looking to grab one soon.

    Have you tried this with the old PSP? Sony said the tuner was for PSP slim, so I hope thet add compatibility in a future firmware update, others wise Sony has cut out 26million users.

    the tv tuner is capable for the phat psp also.. just a minor tweak again in its memory and your all set… the only probs is that it can get fewer channels compared to the slim…must be with additional ram for the slim or something…

  • UltraNEO

    Well, actually the tuner only works in Japan, ’cause only Japan has the 1Seg Digital signal, in all other countries the tuner does nothing.

  • NeCromX

    Yea UltraNEO it’s funny how many people in the states are like I want one. They think it will pick up the Free HD broadcast TV. I don’t get how people think 1-seg is the same as the states HD transmission. 1-seg is satellite while our HDTV is transmitted the same way our old analog signal was with UHF/VHF frequencies just digital transmissions instead of analog not from satellite at all lol.
