The PSX features either a 160 GB or 250 GB hard drive to record television shows, home movies, digital photos, or for use with PlayStation 2 titles compatible with the PlayStation 2 hard disk drive. There is also the indication that the PSX will be linked with the PlayStation 3, meaning that existing PSX owners will not be left out. This could possibly mean that the base version of the PS3 would connect to the PSX to form the “home server” version of the PS3.
Confusingly, PSX is also a popular nickname for the PlayStation video game console. The "X" appears because Sony originally developed the PlayStation as a CD-ROM add-on for the SNES. When the project was halted by Nintendo, Sony decided to redesign the PlayStation as a stand alone console, which was known internally as PlayStation X. The media caught wind of the name and it has stuck ever since.
