Playstation TV is the revolutionary idea that Microsoft was trying to accomplish with the XBox One, but miserably failed. The Playstation TV succeeds by giving people what they want: more gaming for less.
Streaming PS4 games to my other TV as well as getting to play PS Vita/PSP games on a big screen makes this essential for me to get
want it as a cheap console for the children, and to play some Vita games on TV.
The Lego bundle seems best for you then. I'm thinking of just buying the unit, seeing about buying a DS4, and switching my 8GB memory between the two. I wouldn't suggest my route. I've actually got the time and I'm not annoyed by needing to delete my stuff, transfer, etc all my files. Not alot of people are like me. Which is fine. Come to think of it, some people might want more memory. Not all cards will play on PSTV. In which case, I'd suggest 16GB. They are pretty pricey at about 30 bucks.
@jujubee88 nice! also with the Jack,Ratchet and Sly collections and games like DBZ, One Pice they will be busy for some time
streaming PS4 games is not in my list of reasons. If i want to play PS4...I will play the PS4 (once i get it of course). My reason for getting the PSTV is i want to play retail and digital vita games on a bigger screen. i do a similar thing now with my PSPGo. Playing PSP games on a TV with a real controller is a nice convenient thing to do. And if i want to continue playing when i leave the room...i just take the Go off the dock and take it with me. I had thought Sony would just revise the vita to support TV out via a dock (like the Go) but this way is nice and cheap too. Taking the game out of my vita and then popping it into the PSTV will yield the same results (on retail games). Is it official that you can take the memory card from a vita and play it on the PSTV without it saying the games are not able to play from this device?
I want this as I travel a lot and hotels can be boring (if you're on your own!) - with this, I plug in to hotel TV and can play my PS4 wherever I am in the world! I could even sneak a few games while on holiday, maybe ;^P
It plays PS Vita, PSN, PSP, PS1, Remote Plays PS4 and will stream PS3 games. At half the price of an actual Vita which is $200+
I want it to play Vita games on the TV. Some games would just be more comfortable that way...particularly the JRPG's. I still use my PS3 for my media streaming needs. I may get a 2nd one to play games on my office TV
For $99, I can't say no. Even if I were to use it just to play Vita games I'd otherwise miss.
I don't need 6 reasons. I'm buying it cause I want to play on another TV without having to disconnect everything.
That really is a killer feature to be honest. This has way bigger potential in the West than it ever had in Japan, cause we still use home consoles :> I could see a fairly large adoption rate for PS4 owners down the line. Might even save the Vita.
I'm tempted, I've never played Soul Sacrifice and I'm not into small screen gaming so being able to play this and a few other games on the big screen is very appealing
Soul Sacrifice is a good game with monster hunting Co-Op, your lucky because you get the chance to play the improved SS:Delta. also great promising games like Freedom Wars and Over My Dead Body 2. and you may already have tons of Vita games if you got PSN+
Wise choice. Wise choice. Great series for fans of weapon/potion crafting and action. Repetitive, but for me it's enough to love and easy for me to get lost in the art and over the top story.
Nah. Not interested.
Such opinion. Very entitled. Much nonchalant.
I would want one for PS Now. But I'm not sure if I want to pay for super old games I've already played again. Wish they would come out with pricing for it.
Why comment then? I'm not at all interested in the Xbone, yet you don't see me in every article -related/spouting nonsense. _____________________________ __________________________ OT. DAY 1.
im eating ramen noodle and oatmeal all day to afford sony products. no insurance or anything...love sony no seriously they make amazing headphones too. and mp3 s i will sacrafice a goat for sony
Is that all you eat?
As a kid I would save my lunch money so I could buy video games. That was back in the 90's though. Ya know, when PS1 games only cost $39 or $49 haha
I would if I didn't already have an Apple TV.
Which would be acceptable if you could play your Playstation games through that. Edit: I'm amazed that so many people on here- devoted fans of a certain company- have no idea what the damn device is, and keep making the same stupid comments. Edit: No, it's a gaming device. Educate yourself, please.
It's a settop box first and foremost. Sure it can play Vita games but I have no interest in that therefore to me it would just be a settop box therefore I don't need it.
How can you be so certain you don't want it if you don't even know what it does?! :/ Read up on it; it's a clever piece of kit and is nothing like Apple TV.
I know what it does.... I'm not interested in its gaming features thus it's simply a set top box for my needs. Not saying it's not cool or anything just for my needs as it would similar to a device I already have.
1 Reason why I won't. I dont watch TV
It's not for watching TV :I
I know right? If I'm going to comment on an article, I'll at least read a few excerpts from it. Not just the title like this guy did. smh
The box is a micro-game console. The box allows you to download ps1,PS2 and playstation mini, PSP games and playstation vita games and play those games on a TV screen @ up to 1080i resolution. It also allows cross play or cross buy games from the PS3 that support also the PSvita games. With a PS4 this also allows you to stream PS3 and PS4 games on another TV without having the other TV requiring the full console. On top of that it is a full game console ..just smaller
for the people who have it in Japan, how do Vita games look on a big screen TV? Does it look stretched out or have they found a way to run it in native HD for a large screen TV?
It's been out for awhile. You can watch clips of it on youtube. It can play 720p and upto 1080i (no 1080p). VITA games look good. PS3 games from PS NOW will look fine. Remote-play will look below average (since most PS4 games push over 720p), but still get the picture. Hope this answers your question.
Main reason for me is to play PS4 in another room when the Living room TV is in use. Everything else is a bonus! Anyone know if this will have DLNA features?
most likely not, it may in future, but not til a long long time. it would be a lot better if eu psn starts putting more video apps. its annoying that there isnt netflix or amazon. its also missing all the uk channels like bbc, itv, 4od. i would like to say that once psnow is released it would make it very attractive for many.
That's why I'm interested as well. My PS4 is hooked up to a projector downstairs, where my kids rooms are as well. I'd like to be able to play my PS4 upstairs in the living room without disturbing the kids or firing everything up. With my PS3, I had two of them for this purpose. Acting as a PS4 extender for $100 is worth it to me. I probably spend more a month on coffee. Being able to play my Vita games on the TV is also a definite plus.
I'll probably get it just for the fact I can hopefully get my RPG fix in with vita games
Personally I don't want to rent games but buy them. I hope eventually all classics will be available so I can finally play Suikoden 2 again
It looks cool, but I already own a Vita and PS4, and it does nothing my Wii U and Xbox One don't have covered. The only really cool thing is the streaming PS4 to another TV, but I live in a dorm, so it is useless to me
this is for people who don't have the money to spring for all that. If you couldn't afford ALL 3 next-gen systems, (like a HUGE majority of the population), this would be an EXCELLENT choice. props on keeping the poor people covered!!!
I'm a poor as hell college student, I just worked my ass off for 9 months to be able to afford all three consoles. A lot of people I know can afford all of they systems, they just don't want to buy them
I completely understand. Obviously, this isn't going to be for everyone. But it certainly has a lot going for it for $100. These things will sell like hotcakes.
1. They give it to me for free. 2. They pay me to use it. 3. see 1 and 2 4. see 1 and 2 5. see 1 and 2 6. see 1 and 2
Does the $100 cover the ability to stream old PS games? Then Yes. If I need another subscription on top of my PS+ to do that, then no, my PS3 and PS4 are fine.
MS bring TV to their new console, dumbest idea ever. Sony bring TV to their new console, best idea ever. Dumb-ass console gamers 1 - logic 0.
People who make stupid claims without reading-1 Reading Comprehension-0
I don't need it to play PS4 games in a different room. My PS4 and Xbox One stays in my room. I'm interested because I want to play Vita games and PS1 games that are on the PS store. If the Dualshock 4 touchpad will allow us to finally play any Vita game, then I'm all in.
The ps4 D's does indeed allow touch enabled psvita enabled games to be now used with the playstation TV. Only games that have back touch pad control options my not get a patch to work because there is no back touch pad option for the playstation TV, but for front touch screen play functionality requirements with a DS4 hooked up, than yes the playstation TV will most likely be able to play the game. Which I think was the reason for the delay of release of this unit till recently. On the Japanese playstation site they have a instructional slide show on DS4 working with the playstation vita TV. The game was soul sacrifice was shown to be working with the DS4. So yes its there
Ah I see. So ps4 is all about tv now and xbox one is all about games. Nice.
Ah I see.You still have no clue what the PS TV is for.
All ready have one. Don't main use it to stream PS4 titles. Playing Vita titles on it is pretty damn good.
I kinda doubt there gonna be any good ps4 games on it cause that'll defeat the purpose of a actual ps4 console.
Sony's taken a smart approach by boosting the Vita's user base. PS Vita box art will need to be updated, but it's an easy fix.
I'm not a massive fan of 'TV' focused consoles/add on's, mainly because they suck in countries outside of the US (Especially the UK) But this does sounds really good, especially the streaming games ect.
memory card? if i can't hook up a large storage device, it's a no buy.
i have my ps4 attached to my personal tv, but my living room tv isnt "smart." so this is perfect to watch netflix AND use my PS4 without moving everything!
I know I'm picking up mainly to avoid moving the PS4 from back & forth to the living room, to our bedroom. I wonder how bad, if any input lag there will be.
The lag for local is pretty much zero esp. If you are only extending through in house. Its pretty flawless.
This almost sounds like PS4 owners also have to buy an additional PS TV to make this work, am I right? Then..hell no, should be on PS4 OR PS TV for people without a ps4.
Dont think it will be successful
take my money
Demo of a playstation Vita TV in action, https://m.youtube.com/watch... And also Remote play demo in action on a playstation vita TV https://m.youtube.com/watch... Now as you can see take a standard playstation Vita storage card or the standard playstation vita game card is there. Now with DS4 support. the TV attached to the end of Playstation "TV" is just to market the system better for the area where this box is being released. People know what a Apple TV Google TV Amazon Fire TV They know what those are So Sony made the Playstation TV to be easy to Market instead of Playstation Vita TV They Used Just Playstation TV, as you can see between those two names which would be better from a marketing standpoint? Playstation TV is a playstation Vita, just with a better name and better price point to launch with. Expect full force marketing with playstation TV this fall in the North American market from Sony. Your going to be seeing advertising every where for this unit.
