The PS4 Isn't the Only New Console Sony Released Last Week

Last week, Sony released the PlayStation 4 in the Western world, but that wasn't the only PlayStation console to make its debut in stores. Japanese consumers this past week saw the release of Sony's new micro-console, the PlayStation Vita TV. (PlayStation, PS Vita, Sony)

This needs to come to the west. It sounds like an amazing console.

I agree. Problem is, Sony is probably strategizing its release. The company wants a maximum sale of the PS4 first on the West since they fear that Vita TV might overlap the sales of the beloved home consoles. Meanwhile I think that when Asia gets the PS4 launch, the West will get the Vita TV launch in return. BUT SERIOUSLY THOUGH!! FREAKING RELEASE IT NOWWWW!!

Would love to have this in my home, Darn you Japan!

I love the idea of using this as a PS4 extender into other rooms of my house. I'll be all over this once it comes to NA.

That actually would be really cool.

I've always been a bit confused as to why this has been so well received here since it was first announced, but using it to play your ps4 in another room sounds like a great idea, not too enthralled by any of the other features though.

Does it not give you the option to use the vita as a controller?

So far I've only seen DualShock 3 and Dualshock 4 compatibility confirmed.
Wh15ky  +   248d ago
I've always assumed the main reason for this device was to transfer the vita screen to your tv screen.

I find it strange that the vita can't be used as a controller, it completely negates all the efforts developers have made to incorporate the vitas unique control methods.

Compare this little gem to the proposed version of XB1-without game playing?? WTF?

If they made a ps4 vita tv bundle that would be nice. $500 same as x1 but you can play ps4 in two rooms and never have to unhook anything.

Hopefully they patch it and it comes with a DualShock 4 so you can use touch controls, because the lack of a touch screen is a killer for some games as seen in the video, but I love that it works so well, and upscaled games smoothly instead of causing harsh AA issues (looking at you BF4 on XBO).

Be curious if anyone has imported one yet. Really want this thing and willing to import it if there's no hiccups with doing so.

EDIT: I commented before reading the article, looks like importing is covered in there. :)

29th feels like a lifetime

I have a feeling that this will eventually come stateside, but I think sales in Japan will have an effect on Sony's decision to bring it overseas or not.

Hopefully they turn out to be good, because this is an appealing device, all things considered.
