I guess the question was to combine both vita and PS4 in a bundle, and their answer was PS VITA TV. Always one step ahead Sony

Looks like the perfect companion app for Vita + PS4.

Use Vita memory card to play Vita games on TV, stream PS4 games to second TV using device. Then there's always the Vita to Remote Play if you don't have a spare TV hanging around.

Would Dualshock 4 be compatible with Vita games, didn't quite get that from the conference. It seems like it would make sense, to make use of the touchpad?

Sony actually listened to consumers in this one, people were asking some sort of hdmi connection to play on tv and there you go. And it has full integration with ps4 which is awesome and the price isn't that bad.

Imagine PS4 + PS Vita TV + PS Camera + 3-6 Months of PS+ for $499.

Only Denzel and Kaz can explain how awesome this news is.


So now we know for sure that a PS4/Vita bundle for $500.00 is now a reality, and that's going to put a lot, and I mean a lot of pressure on competitors.

Now you have the ability to stream your PS4 onto another TV in the house. I don't mean start any flame wars, but isn't that a better feature and better value than what you get for $500.00 from the competition?

I mean 1300 games, Streaming both PS Vita and PS4?

Think about remote play with the Vita Tv, you can essentially leave your console at home and still take it with you on trips. Bring the vita tv to your relative house and still have access to your PS4 titles. Plug it in to their tv and play your PS4 games on a big tv without a the PS4 being there.

HDMI output too, what a great idea and somehow it miraculously wasn't leaked. Had no idea they would be showing this thing!

Can the regular Vita be hooked up to a TV? I am planning to buy a Vita soon before all the OLED models are sold and part of the reason I want it is to stream games from my PS4 to the Vita to play them when I am away from my PS4.

But it would be nice if the regular Vita can also hook up to a TV. Is this possible?
SilentNegotiator  +   725d ago
But wait a minute; no touch control. Almost the entire first generation of Vita games won't work for it. Not even KZ:M, unless they patch it.

This thing is going to have a rocky start with so few compatible games. But for $100, it should ultimately succeed if Sony handles this right.

i was thinking sony would revise the vita with tv out like they revised the psp with tv out.

The front facing camera could have worked with the ps move controller for those games that used touch and control schemes.

It sort of reminds me of the UMD reader sony was working on back before the PSP 2000 came out. Sony was toying with the idea of a USB based UMD drive that would plug into the PS2 and let you play PSP games on TV.

They instead went with incorporating TV out on the 2000 and then 3000 and even the GO. Although, the GO really had dedicated support for a regular controller.

This is nice though. I can see it appealing to the vita gamers that arent as inclined to take their system on the go but rather play the games on a bigger screen.

Im sure the unit would upscale to at least 720p via hdmi.
J-R  +   725d ago
I have a Vita but this will be a great addition. The size of it looks very portable which means I can take it from one TV to another in my house or to the cottage for those rainy days.
This combined with PS4's remote play is very exciting.
I imagine this would also be a great option for gamers on a budget.

Why is it not compatible with the DS4? Does nobody else see that as bullshit?

This device is ridiculous. It can't even play all Vita games. Only output is 720P. Fail. Its 150-200 dollars. Requires a memory card. Extra 100 dollars. It's just ridiculous.
Ritsujun  +   725d ago
OSM's mad that he could only game on Xbosh360 and Xbone180, and he can't remote play the console in a different room without the actual console in it.
PSVITA TV has internal memory, for goat's sake.

Xbosh doesn't even have blls to release dedicated handheld console. Xbosh was focusing on TV stuff on the Xbone180 reveal, totally laughable.

If this comes to Canada, then this will be the next Sony home console that I buy, since I'm not buying a PS4. I was disappointed about the Vita not having HDMI Out, but this pretty much fixes that dilemma. I wonder if PS3 streaming is somehow possible with this device, especially since remote play is already possible through PSP and Vita...

@ ProA007

Nothing to be confused about buddy.

You can either get a Vita, or get get a Vita....lol

In all Seriousness you have the option to get a handheld Vita. Or get one for you TV/console style, for half the price at $100.00.

A lot of people wanted a HDMI OUT on their Vita and this is the answer. Thouhg Sony added streaming capabilities to it, and made it compatible with the PS4. Now you can use your PS4 on a TV that it's not even hooked up to by streaming the content using the Vita TV.

I Hope that cleared it up for ya. :)
beebap  +   725d ago
It can't support touch etc vita games as use ds3 or ds4 so still need vita but love them to support vita as controller to play them vita games on big screen.
iamnsuperman  +   725d ago

I can see the confusion but I think Sony are using the games as a Trojan horse for the Vita. Software is where the money is made and it might encourage people to want to spend more to play the Vita games on the go. Then add remote play for the PS4 and this little device does a lot for the Vita and PS4. It is cheap as well which will help. It seems this device is adding a lot more for the Vita and the PS4 which would put serious pressure on their competitors (only if the release date for the other regions is sooner rather than later and advertise the hell out of it)

That is the biggest news about this new product. Being able to play your PS4 an any additional tv in your house without moving it as long as you have a VitaTV hooked up to it. That is a KILLER feature if you ask me. I would gladly pay $100 for that.
brave27heart  +   724d ago
Not being funny, but why would I simply not just move my PS4 upstairs if I wanted to play it on a different TV and save the $100? Im really not that lazy.

You've also just given devs a reason not to make use of touch screen or motion controls on their Vita games so they can be compatible with Vita TV, negating some of Vitas selling features.

Use streaming content like Hulu and play PS one classics? Like a PS3 then?

I really can only see the point of this if you dont have a Vita and want to play Vita games. Maybe its more to get devs to make Vita games and try to boost the library, but its not a device thats a necessary consumer product. It doesnt provide anything you cant get either from a PS3, a Vita or by simply unplugging and moving a console. For $100 thats just not enough and essentially destroys Vita sales.
ErcsYou  +   724d ago
I guess i could just disconnect my Ps4 every night and finish gaming in my bed and then just disconnect it in the morning and take it down stairs. Twice a day makes that 730 times a year or 4380 times over the next 6 years. Why risk dropping it. MY reasoning behind it was the thought of me playing down stairs when the kids say " we want to watch a movie". no problem, pause my game, switch the video input, walk up stairs, turn my TV on and continue my game. I dont want to have to turn off my system, disconnect all the wires, take it up stairs, reconnect every thing and start my game again. I would gladly pay $100 to never have to move my PS4. i like the convenience of the PSVTV

Not only is it a Vita player for the big screen, if used to stream a PS4 game you basically have Dual screen output as in watching a PS4 play on two tvs at the same time. Can let you continuing playing your PS4 games on your bedroom tv without having to lug your PS4 out of the living room.

Only thing odd about it is it working with DS3 controllers instead of DS4, Vita games touch screen and rear touch pad can't be used.

Other than that I've actually been wanting something like this as I want to play games like Monster Hunter and Soul Sacrifice on a large screen rather than the Vitas. At $100 it's something I'll definitely be doing.

Another thing to note, with this secondary device adding to the Vitas install base with its sales we should see more developer support for the Vita. It's basically a $100 Vita Console.

Highlight of the show, obviously that thing they were claiming would be a big deal.

From the commercial, it clearly demonstrate that it's compatible with the DS4. Go watch it again and you'll see the DS4 clear as day :)
rainslacker  +   725d ago
This was a huge announcement. I was expecting a big unexpected game, but wow. A new-ish hardware announcement on the eve of a next gen console release is pretty big.

It's obviously going to sell at that price.

I think they stuck with DS3 to keep the cost down, as the DS4 is more expensive for them to make.

I agree wholeheartedly though that there are some Vita games I would love to play on the big screen while at home, and if I can use a more comfortable controller while doing it this thing will be mine.:)

Kudo's to all the real gamers out there who had to stay up in the wee hours of the morning to watch the conference, and those in parts of the world with a better time zone than mine. I'm sure more of the trolls will come out when they wake up.:)

I can understand the DS3 controller. What I don't really understand is how can they sell it with no controller at all? I mean, if I understood it right (and if not, I'm sorry, it's almost freaking 6am here) the cheaper version (roughly 100 bucks) comes only with the "console", no controller. While the 150 bucks version come with a Dual Shock 3 and a 8GB Memory Card.

So, let's say you buy the cheap version. You take it home, set it up, turn it on, put on a game... And stare at it hoping you can control it with your f'ing mind?

I actually don't think I got it right, must have missed something... Or else it would be the first I see a console come with no controller at all on the box... Anyway, let's hope for TGS to hear more on it. I wonder if it supports more than one controller.
rainslacker  +   725d ago

Here's a press release from Sony that has the details


A controller will be necessary, but looks like you can get the all in one version, or a cheaper version where you can use your existing or cheap 2nd hand controller. There is also a couple USB connectors so it's possible you could use wired controllers which are pretty cheap, although less convenient IMO.

The value pack is probably the best way to go if you don't own any PS3 hardware to take parts off of. otherwise you could get a DS3 controller pretty cheap used.

It does have 1GB of memory built in, so a memory card isn't really necessary, although 1GB won't go far if you start getting digital content.

Seeing as how I already have a VITA, I'm going for VITA TV and I might skip VITA 2k.

The VITA I have will let me play remote-play while I'm talking a crap, while the VITA TV will let me play in my room when the gf wants to watch tella novellas.

I can honestly say I didn't see this coming at all, but it's not a bad idea at all. Get some really good games for a low price, and it introduces a very strong competitor to OUYA. I would personally rather a vita, but I could see why someone would go for this. What would be really awesome is if they made the Vita TV work with the DS4.

no worries

Dualshock 4 will be supported in a future firmware update.

This is what I don't get and am worried about. Could this not end up hurting the Vita and its sales? I just bought a Vita recently and I love it. But aren't a lot of people just gonna buy this now, as its cheaper? I hope not.

And why call it PS VITA TV, when it can stream PS4 games too? Why not call it something that incorporates that.

I think it's cool, just a little worried.

100% getting one of these.
rainslacker  +   725d ago
Hope they patch in DS4 support, or it comes in the box. Apparently it comes with a DS3. I would get one just to hook up in the bedroom, so I only need 1 PS4, and maybe put a 2nd one in my gaming room I'm building.:)

Also will be a big boom to Vita sales as well and hopefully expand it's install base.:) No more reason for those people that don't want it because it's a mobile game system.


That'd be awesome to take it over to a friends house and just hook it up for some good gaming.:)

Hell, I'm happy enough with my Vita, but I'm inexplicably excited for this, although I care nothing much about it's streaming functions except for maybe the bedroom TV.

@soldier below

Picture showed a DS3 and they said it in the conference. I can't see why it wouldn't have DS4 support. Probably didn't include DS4 to keep costs down.

"Love it for the remote play on another TV"

Why? You could pick your PS4 up and move it to another room for $100 less.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   725d ago

Exactly. Forget room to room, with this you can put your PS4 in your pocket and take it on a trip or to friends to a big screen instead of an small one... I still think a Vita with an HDMI output would be better (as it also would not require taking with you controllers and what not), but for 100 bucks it's completelly fine.

But before I get all excited and trade my Vita in, I'll try the remote play and see how it works around here. Unfortunatelly internet speed in my region are very low (I have the highest available in this particular neighbour, 2mbps, but even as I intend to move by the end of the year, the fastest in this small city is 4mbps) so I may not be able to take advantage of this at all.

Unless the main TV is being occupied using PS4 for movies or something then you can't play games elsewhere using remote play with Playstation Vita TV right?
RevXM  +   725d ago
No, but I would think that it could play some PS3, ps4 games and Vita games.

The big question is how would we deal with the touch on this thing?
I already have a vita, So The Vita TV would only get used to stream and use apps at home on a secondary screen unless it is possible stream my regular vita (video and sound output) up at the big screen. Vita^2 = awesome.

VitaTV is a weird device, but I do see myself getting one someday.

Unplug your console and move it?

I get that its a cheap way to play Vita games and its a way to play Vita games on a tv but this streaming to another room in the house....are people that lazy??
Metfanant  +   725d ago
so i can play Vita games without buying a Vita that ill never use? Sign me up!

I still think you need a Vita, this little box just remote plays it to your TV screen instead.
I assume it will still use the Vita as a controller of sorts.


Lol, i remembered that after i posted the my comment.
Thanks Guys for correcting.

My little lad is always bugging me to play on my Vita, i might just let him now, just on his own TV!!

I will be getting 4 of these, one for every TV in the house LOL.

M-M  +   725d ago
You don't need a Vita, it's literally a Vita home console with some beastly features.
ziggurcat  +   725d ago
i guess this is how they're handling remote play. it looks really great!

Article says some Vita games with touchscreen functions aren't going to be avaible to play on the PS Vita TV because the DualShock 3 doesn't have those functions. It has its limits on what Vita games it can play.
joeorc  +   725d ago


Dualshock 4 will be supported in a future firmware update! so there is your touch screen support. also playstation mobile support right off the bat is also good.

this Makes sense because this comes out before the PS4.

Meh, ooopppsss that's Nintendo lol jk, Microsoft I don't think they can do anything about it, Nintendo neither because if they were to make something like this the 3ds and 2ds games will just look horrible on HDTVs

HEHEH, AS a matter of fact Sony would not want to kill them, think about it..playstation Mobile runs on what platform?


all a 3rd party device maker would need to do is.
1) playstation Mobile certification
2) network to download APK
3) consumer to download games and enjoy

Wide freaking Grin/

Sony wants them to stick around, well as long as they get their device playstation Mobile certified..LOL

That's so true.

Anything that is PS Mobil certified is basically hardware sony never had to pay a penny to make but they would still collect on game sales. Never thought of it like that, such a clever business move!

+bub to you for making me think haha!

This is huge.. I'm not even sure if I want a Vita, but for $100? ... that might be hard to pass up, also considering the free games we will get from PS+. This is a smart move by Sony and the price point is great. Also good news for people who don't have $400-$500 to spend on a new console yet.

it was nice but I really wanted to see THE LAST GUARDIAN!!!!! *dreams crushed* :(

Sci0n  +   725d ago
Mind blown!! you can remote play the PS4 on another TV in another room with that too. Wow amazing
Protagonist  +   725d ago
Excellent surprise...also really want that grey PS Vita...and the PS4...and...
r21  +   725d ago
I guess, the vita got 2 remodels then. Such an odd move. Oh well, at least folks can finally join the vita bandwagon at a very low price now.
rainslacker  +   725d ago
Vita got a lot of love at this conference. Almost 45 minutes worth.
