All You Need To Know About The Upcoming PlayStation TV

PS4Home: "Viewers will be able to use video-on-demand content, access DVR functionality, and even view live TV programming." (PlayStation TV, PS3, PS4)

Why is it "service" when you show us a console instead.
BTW; for a company like Sony who made TV series for 50 years, it kinda makes sense to have their own TV streaming service.

Whether or not you're interested is another thing, but they do have great content.

If I wanted to play games from my PS Vita, why not just put that ability on the VITA itself?

Will I be able to transfer over all my downloaded Vita games onto this Vita tv? If not, this is a waste of time.

Pretty obvious that you can. You can also download your games again if you buy a new Vita

There is no TV Video Output on the PS Vita.

"There is no TV Video Output on the PS Vita."

No...no there isn't. It's a portable gaming platform that was designed for play on the go. Why would there be a TV out?

Not quite sure what your point is here.

For me, I'm purchasing a PS TV day one. I had two PS3's last gen for my upstairs and downstairs entertainment setups and this device is worth $100 to me just as a PS4 extender if nothing else. The fact that I can continue to play my Vita titles on the TV with a standard controller when I choose is just a fantastic, added bonus.

Both my brothers bought big campers this summer as well with TV's onboard. I think I'll get them each a PS TV for Christmas. These would be fantastic for taking along with them so the kids can play on those wet days and weekends. These are certainly nice to pack up easily to take on holidays or out to the cabin, or just an inexpensive console to throw in the kid's room.

Will the cable service market become irrelevant, once the PS TV arrives worldwide ?
Wikkid666  +   72d ago
No... just another streaming box.

In a market with devices that have more apps and native HD instead of upscaled 544 or lower pending on the games/app

No. Even if wildly successful it would take many years for cable TV service to become irrelevant. Before we can stream everything we need widespread availability of reasonably fast, reasonably priced internet access with very high or no download cap.

Poorly written and hardly informative, since there is no official info.

This can play Minecraft

Can it play Farmville and Angry Birds?

True iptv would be nice in North America, unfortunately... the TV cabal's here don't like competition much.

Quote: Hirai has assured the public that the PlayStation TV Service will only combine TV with other video services, not compete with other TV providers...

Sometimes corperate greed is the reason why we can't have nice things. IPTV or live tv without a cable box might be possible without a middle man, but the powers that be are sure as heck resisting as best they can. http://bluesky.chicagotribu...
