The PSX, also known as the PlayStation X, is a Sony digital video recorder with a fully integrated PlayStation 2 video game console. It was released in Japan on December 13, 2003. Since it was designed to be a general-purpose consumer video device, it was marketed by the main Sony Corporation instead of Sony Computer Entertainment. Its high cost resulted in poor sales, meaning that the PSX was never released outside Japan.The device is a fully functional digital video recorder with an included Infrared remote control and S-Video, composite video, and RF inputs. It is able to tune analog VHF and CATV. It can also be linked with a PlayStation Portable to transfer videos and music via USB ports, and features software for non-linear video editing, image editing and audio editing.DVD+R support was to be introduced in a future update.It was the first device to use Sony's XrossMediaBar (XMB) graphical user interface, which was later used on the PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, and 2008-era BRAVIA TVs.The PSX fully supports both PlayStation and PlayStation 2 software by its slot-loading DVD drive, as the onboard EE+GS chip is a unification of the PS2's Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer chips. Online game compatibility is available using the broadband connection; Games that use the PS2 HDD (such as Final Fantasy XI) are supported as well.While the PSX is not supplied with any game controllers, there are two controller ports on the back of the device. Black or Ceramic White DualShock 2's with 4-meter long cables were sold separately, and standard DualShock and DualShock 2 controllers were also compatible. Two PlayStation memory card ports were on the front of the PSX, behind a panel cover.Like the "regular" PlayStation 2 models, the PSX can be laid horizontally or stood vertically.
