Sony mentioned during CES 2012 that its Google TV-powered hardware would come to Europe this summer, and now it’s official. Along with Google, it’s announced preorders are available for the $200/£200/$199 NSZ-GS7 internet streaming set-top box in the US and UK (showing a ship date of July 9th for now), with plans to launch in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and Netherlands later this year. The NSZ-GP9 with integrated Blu-ray player will arrive in October, priced at £280/€300 overseas. UK users can expect localized content from The Guardian among other sources, and more reveals are promised at Google I/O this week. There’s an internationally-aimed trailer (embedded after the break) and more information from Sony and Google at their respective sites, we’ll see if the mix of reworked hardware and updated software makes this venture more successful than the last round.
