The first thing everyone says when they pick up the Play TV hardware is, ‘’Oooh, isn’t it light?’’ But its lack of weight is no surprise when you consider little more than a pair of TV tuners: all of the clever stuff is handled by your PS3 once you have installed the Play TV software from the disc provided. Upon start up you choose your region, attach the Play TV hardware to your PS3, and scan for available channels. So far, so expected, but towards the end of the process the system warns you that, if you want to use Play TV’s recording function while simultaneous playing PS3 games or watching Blu-ray discs or DVDs, it may effect gameplay or the quality of recording.

And the first movie title to be equipped with this is the Step Brothers, you know the one featuring Will Ferrell and John Reilly. Anyway, we’re not here to talk about the actors, what’s so cool about this new function within Blu-ray discs is that the Step Brothers disc includes a ‘Boats N Hoes’ music video editor, allowing you to quickly put together your very own version of the video used in the film, using clips from the movie, kind of like creating your very own clip classic.
