According to this GI story, Sony’s confirmed it’s shipped 85,000 units of PlayTV in the UK.
The hardware add-on, which acts as a freeview box and personal video recorder, went on sale last weekend for £70.
Everyone we know who has one can’t stop banging on about it. Which is clearly why 85,000 of them are now hitting shops countrywide.

Eurogamer has reviewed Sony’s new set-top box, PlayTV, giving it 8/10.
This of course means the all singing, all dancing, record-the-telly-whilst-you-play-Resistance 2, £69.99 wonder is as good as Halo and MGS4, but not quite as good as GRID or Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
However, if that doesn’t sell it you, you can read more about it through the link.

SCEE president David Reeves has said that its PlayTV service will go live in the UK from September 10, with a European rollout continuing through to December, writes Eurogamer.
This is a little later than the July 31 date we were given back in May, but there you go.
“Yep, it’s going to be September 10 that PlayTV comes out,” he told the site.
“It was very difficult for some of the tech guys but we had to include it in the firmware upgrade, 2.41, but it’s done now.”
The device will retail at £60, or €99.

According to this, TV shows recorded using PlayTV on PlayStation 3 can then be dragged off the machine as MPEG2 files onto any memory stick or PC.
“We’ve talked to our legal department about it,” said Mark Bunting, a producer at Sony’s Cambridge Studio. “All we’re doing is moving it out of PlayTV and to the cross-media bar as if it was any other recording. So hopefully users won’t do stuff they shouldn’t do with it.
“If I’m prohibited from getting the recording off and storing it somewhere else because some other dude is making money out of selling it, then I’d rather they brought the law in to catch those people.”
Sounds fine to us. We’ll never, ever use this, but it’s nice to know it’s there.
