PS3's Play TV dated for July

According to Amazon, anyway...

Sony will launch Play TV for PS3 in the UK in July, according to Amazon.

The etailer's got the launch date down as July 31 (to be precise) on its website.

Obviously we've put a call in to Sony UK to confirm the date, but no one was available for comment at the time of writing.

Play TV continues the case of attempted one-upmanship from Sony over Microsoft and Xbox Live, and is a digital TV receiver and recorder for PS3.

The last release date given for Play TV was March 28 - but we reported in February that HMV had pulled pre-orders for the device after apparently being informed by its "supplier" that the product "no longer has a scheduled release date".
