^^^^^^ Kaz-Eazy, approves this message ^^^^^^^^^^

I'm still confused about one thing. Does this thing do anything that my vita can't or wont be able to do in the future?

DEEBO1113d ago

yeah it connects to tv for one,you can use the ps3 and the ps4 controller later down the line for vita games.

FamilyGuy1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

It plays games on a television screen through HDMI output, Vita can't do that.

Everything else the vita can do.

You can already connect a vita to a PS3 controller via blue tooth I believe. I remember reading that as an option before vita launched and I though it was pretty cool.

Damn, the ride never ends! Not only is Sony throwing jabs at M$ left and right with the PS4, but NOW they going for Apple TV, Ouya, Roku and Google's Chromecast. Kaz seems hellbent on taking over world and causing absolute f*cking annihilation.

I'm usually a massive skeptic, but this thing could be huge.

Side note: Even if this ends up a failure, I love how Sony has made games news way more interesting with this, VR headsets, Shuhei tweets, etc. Good times.

It is an interesting device, but I can't say if I'll get one. I don't live with my parents, so I have my own TV and don't really have to worry about sharing.

doctorstrange1113d ago

I think sharing's just an extra feature. Who this should appeal to is people who can't plot down $399+ on a games console, or people who don't play games that often and just want a Netflix device and realize this is the same price as an Apple TV.

Or, in the future, if you have really good internet, you could get this for $99 and Gaikai PS4 games anyway.

This is like putting a TV in every house... affordable yet powerful... how they kept this under wraps so long amazes me.... like when Apple introduced the world to the Ipod... the wow factor...

TimeSkipLuffy1113d ago

no, it's not! It is a home console and media streamer that happens to play a list of VITA titles.
I hate the name because it is misleading but I love the device! :3

boybato1113d ago

What would you had named it then?

Protagonist1113d ago (Edited 1113d ago )

@NightmareLuffy

You are WRONG it is a PS Vita that plays on the TV.

The PS Vita (portable) will also stream PS4 games.

Sucks for you, that you hate the name!

I love it, because it makes perfect sense...and it does not confuse consumers by giving the PS Vita a "third name".
Consumers will know exactly what they are getting "A PS Vita that plays on the TV"...

TimeSkipLuffy1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

A real VITA would be able to play all games and provide 100% compability. Yes, it has similar hardware but the VITA is a portable device with a rear touch pad, controller, buttons and a touch screen.

This is a home console that can play some VITA games and other games.

Don't get me wrong. I love this idea and will buy it but people who are NOT familiar with the VITA might buy games like Uncharted (VITA) at retail and be left frustrated because the current package does not tell them they can't play the game! That would cause negative publicity!

And why do they buy them? Because it is a VITA game!

I hope you understand where I see a problem. Not everyone is going through gaming sites and well informed.

twdll1113d ago

Also you can play PS3 and/or PS4 on another tv without having to move the console. Awesome

miyamoto1113d ago

What is mind blowing is that you can play PS Vita games on it while it streams PS4 games to another tv simultaneously.

kneon1113d ago

What are you talking about? That makes no sense.
