    I think this is much more attractive than the portable video players like Zen Vision. It makes much more sense to watch TV and movies on a TV screen. Of course, the iTV is coming soon...

    Does the iTV have 360 style gaming options? No.

    In order to get the download service you need to either buy the standard, non-Core pack or a Core and a hard drive. Either way, you're pushing $400 rather than the $299 Apple have stated for iTV. But you are getting so much more and with a cheap HD-DVD drive for the 360 just around the corner, it certainly looks like a good option.

    Just wonder whether this is something Sony could do to the PS3 with their massive collection of TV, film and music companies to their name.
