Sony have released a new Bravia TV, which just from the TV specifications is a great deal. The Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 features a 22 inch display, along with four HDMI ports, two USB ports, SCART socket, component ports, two Ethernet ports, PC input and built in freeview. Most TVs with these kind of specifications go for at least £250, for a quality brand at least and that many connections. The KDL-22PX300 on the other hand, goes for a very reasonable £200.

The price point is fantastic for those looking for a second TV for the bedroom but, what makes this deal even sweeter and unique, is that the TV features a built in PS2 console. At the base of the TV, there is a disc slot for PS2 games, which will also enable the playback of DVDs on the TV, without the need of an external DVD player. Unfortunately the PS2 will only run in standard definition but, most people who still have a PS2, will be using it in standard definition any way. The TV comes with one controller and you can pick the 22 inch PS2 TV up from Richer Sounds for £199.95, or £219.94 with a 5 year warranty.

In conjunction with the Football World Cup this year, Sony have announced they will be running a ‘scrappage scheme’ fronted by ex England managers  Graham Taylor and Terry Venables and the current England under-21 coach Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce.

From April 29th until July 11th – the date of the 2010 World Cup final, customers can hand in old electronic goods, for example TV’s and Blu-Ray players, working or not, at “Sony Centres, Comet, Curry’s, John Lewis and Tesco Extra stores” and will recieve up to £150 off the price of a new Bravia television. Items do not need to be Sony branded which gives consumers a great chance to scrap their old, unwanted goods and settle down to watching the World Cup on a shiny new Bravia, all at a cut down price, the Sony press release reveals.

Sony UK commercial director: “We understand that consumers will undoubtedly want to upgrade their kit as they gear up for the World Cup this summer, but cost is still an issue for most of us coming out of recession.

“This campaign is not only timely in helping people take their entertainment to the next level, it is also a good way to encourage the responsible disposal of old technology.”
