    Today Andriasang.com (linked above) reports that Sony is set to release a PS3 320GB HDD DVR bundle which includes Torne on November 18, 2010 in Japan.

    The PlayStation 3 HDD Recorder Pack 320GB unit will be part of a a value priced package for prospective PS3 buyers who'd like to make use of the system's digital video recording capabilities.

    To quote: "This limited edition package combines a Charcoal Black 320 gigabyte PlayStation 3 system with Sony's popular Torne digital video recording device.

    The bundle will sell for 39,980. Separately, the Charcoal Black 320GB system currently sells for 34,980 (a Classic White version, announced at the Tokyo Game Show, is due on October 21), while Torne sells on its own for 9,980 (although it's widely available for a couple of thousand yen less).

    In a separate announcement, Sony also said today that it will be releasing a 2.8m USB cable (Mini-B-A type). This is priced 500 and will be released on December 16. The cable that's included with the PS3 is 1.5 meters. The longer cable can be used in a similar capacity as that, for charging your controller and connecting to a PSP."

    And in another news - users who installed the latest 3.54 FW lately found out that not only they can't use anymore any 3rd party USB cables but any controller or another devices including PSP attempted to connect using non-certified USB cables is permanently disabled and not possible to use anymore even after connecting by approved USB lead ...

    Whoa! thats pretty wild, they are really tightning up everything. Also this will only hurt people who are playing it straight. Who dosnt have multiple usb-cables these days and if you accidentally use a wrong one ..

    Of cause something like this isnt unexpected on a console. I bet they would still sell games and movies as cartridges if blu-ray wasnt so much cheaper to make.

    Back on topic: Nice bundle really. Anything that makes the ps3 more of a media machine is a good thing.
