Kutaragi “promises” PS3-ish device which focuses on AV

And so says the King of all Cosmos...Here we go again, with Mister Ken Kutaragi making announcements.

Well, in any case, this time around, the former Sony head honcho has bravely gone on record in an interview with the Japanese site, Impress, stating that he “promises” a device which he refers to as an “AV-centric PS3”.

Basically, it will be another Sony gadget which will be built around the Cell processor, except that most – if not all – of its functions will be dedicated solely to audio and video capabilities. To quote from the man himself, he says that the upcoming Sony thingamajig would be “a standard AV component sized box with a more powerful, power supply unit, anti-shake insulator, twice the main memory, and 2x HDMI to split sound and video output”.

Oh, and yeah, Kutaragi says that the thing would also certainly be expensive, saying that it would most probably be at around the same price as other high-end electronic devices such as TVs and Blu-ray recorders (notice a pattern here?). Impress speculates that the device that Kutaragi is cooking up may be in the ¥ 300,000 range, or about US$ 2,500.

And so Sony goes on to make the world’s most expensive DVD player. Ouch.
