All in all, it seems the PS Vita TV would do well if it came to other countries like the U.S. It gives those who haven’t jumped in yet an option to do so.
I'm importing it, f waiting, waiting is overrated as hell. This will be in my house by November.
It would be wise to wait probably. I mean outside of Japanese stuff what else would be compatible?
honestly, its not a matter of "if" its a matter of "when". Sony has said it will come to the west but they obviously are releasing in JP first because the PS4 is delayed there. it gives them something to enjoy in the mean time (i would guess). When it comes to the west, it will sell and most likely for less than importing (no offense tongatali). Im a patient person, i can wait till it gets officially released and during which time i will just rack up the PS+ games on my ps3 and vita.
It would be a total dream when it comes and even if just some of the indie stuff I play is on both VITA and VITA TV. Because than I can just carry the VITA in my laptop bag (like always) and the credit card sized VITA TV, an HDMI, DS3 and play anyway I like. :)
@darthv72: More like it gives a handheld dominated market a chance to transition back to consoles or rather playing games on TVs.
Vita games aren't region locked. You could play... everything.
"Vita games aren't region locked. You could play... everything" Yeah but I don't know Japanese..
Besides Sony hopefully being smart enough to bring this over, I hope some devs make titles for this with it more in mind than the PSV.
The push behind VitaTV seems to be the paid tv service Sony is launching. This goes back to their Viacom deal more than anything. The VitaTV would be the lowest cost device that could stream the pay service to homes over their broadband connection. The delay to launch outside of Japan could very well be due to agreements that need to be made in other territories. http://www.nytimes.com/2013...
ps vita tv with ps3/ps4 controller is epic :-)
Sounds so awesome!
It will come to the west eventually and it will sell like crazy!
I keep forgetting about this little device. Hopefully we can pay by the game on the Gaiki streaming service, if it's offered for this device. This will make a cheap ps4 alternative for my lounge area. I'm sure there is some type of catch as it pertains to the ps4 game streaming. If not then great.
The current infastructure for Gaikai is geared up for PS3 streaming over internet. If you want, you can only play PS4 titles over VITA/TV if you've got a PS4 syched to your VITA/TV (either local or via internet). If you have a friend that has a PS4 you might be able to bum a connection off of him/her, but when he/she get on the console you'll obviously be SOL.
if? it will.
Not if. WHEN.
This has the potential to help the Vita take off, so I'm sure Sony will release it everywhere eventually. Hopefully, we'll see more games for the Vita come with it.
release date sony soon!!!
