    Very disappointed, I just brought myself a 'Eyetoy' and planning to pre-order 'PlayTV'
    and having those wries connected at the front of PS3 look like this! [​IMG]

    I don't believe there is a USB input on the back of the 60GB ps3's.

    BS, Lookout. All PS3s have HDMI out. That was speculation around launch that the 20GB wouldn't have HDMI, but it was wrong;

    [​IMG]
    which you can plug on the front usb and take the usb hub(4 usb port) to the back where you can plug the eyetoy, playtv so you wan't have any wires on the front.
    is hard to explain, i hope you understand.

    p.s
    i will be getting playtv too

    Doesn't a USB Hub require drivers to be installed?
