Ps Vita TV announced; detailed by Sony


Sony has announced PS Vita TV for Japan.

PS Vita TV is a device that will allow you to play PlayStation Vita games on your tv, as well as being able to play PS4 games via remote play. The box includes PS Vita memory card slots and will also be able to access digital services such Hulu.

A pack including a wireless DualShock 3 controller and 8GB memory card will be available for ¥14,994 yen (£96).

It sounds like this may eventually arrive in other regions outside of Japan.

What do you think?

I see Sony also announced that the PS4 won't hit Japan until Febuary 2014? Big shock! Sony originally told us about all their 3rd Party support, indie devs but they will hold it back in Japan because it hasn't got enough games for it's own people, yeah nice one!

Wow... that's a weird curve ball announcement. Wonder if this is something Sony cooked up in case anyone gave a shit about Ouya and they wanted something similar on shelves (Spoiler: no one gave a shit about Ouya). Price is very nice though.

This sounds interesting hope it does come to the UK would be great little addition to remote play the PS4 games to another room in the house without having to unplug the console and move it to the other TV.

Or of course to remote play at a friends or family's house without having to take the console with you... pretty sweet

Sounds like a good idea, imagine playing games like FF:Dissidia 012 and God Eater on a big screen.

You already can play them on a big screen

Honestly. Can't see the point. Currently most of the titles are PS3 ports. So why would I pay £100 to play ports? And if you can just play on TV anyways there's no reason to own a handheld console imo.

It can also be used to stream PS4 games to another TV, no need to buy a second PS4

Can the PS4 play a game remotely and another game on it's own TV at the same time?

I suppose that would be useful if I was on Holiday or something. I honestly wouldn't want to buy a second PS4 anyways

You need a separate cable to connect to your TV, something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Snakebyte-Premium-Video--Out-Cable/dp/B000VQMCUE/ref=sr_1_10?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1378747629&sr=1-10&keywords=to+tv+cable

Only some games work apparently the likes of Uncharted, wipeout and gravity rush do not.

Surely they wouldn't release it without the ability to play those games? Was that an official announcement? If they do work I'll be getting it, £96 for the device with an 8GB mem card and Dualshock 3 pad is good value. Great for holidays and weekends away etc.

Apparently certain Vita titles which use the touchscreen won't be able to work with VitaTV currently as it's to be used with the Dualshock 3. BUT is said to be patched in later down the line to work with the Playstation'4's controller, so Gravity Rush and other games that require the touchscreen function will eventually be playable with the PS4's touchpad on the dualshock 4.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
