According to Eurogamer's Digital Foundry, the new line of systems can be controlled with a Bravia TV remote. Essentially, those consoles that are plugged into a Sony Bravia via the HDMI port will allow the XMB to be controlled via your TV remote. Not stopping there, the system will also shut down alongside the TV with a simple press of the TV remote's "Standby" key.

Neat little functionality extras for the Sony loyalist no doubt.
