Nearly 700 Games Available to Play on PlayStation TV on Day One This October

"With PlayStation TV’s launch right around the corner on October 14, I’m pleased to confirm that nearly 700 games will be available in the U.S. and Canada to play on PS TV on Day One, including established, popular franchises like Killzone: Mercenary, cult hits like Persona 4 Golden, and classics like Metal Gear Solid.

In addition, I’m pleased to announce that Adventure Time:
The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom from Little Orbit will also be available in November for PS TV (as well as PS Vita). Our library will continue to expand, with other fan favorites like Minecraft and more. We’re proud to bring such a broad array of content from multiple PlayStation platforms to PS TV, a small console at a great value.

On October 14, you can pick up a PS TV starting at $99.99 (MSRP) for the standalone system, or $139.99 (MSRP) for the bundle that includes a Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK 3), 8GB memory card, and The LEGO Movie Videogame."

does the play tv need vita cards or just normal SDmicros?

WeAreLegion1545d ago

Unfortunately, it still needs Vita cards. :/

VITA cards. For some space for game saves, that standalone SKU comes with 1GB internal memory.

Other than that, you are kinda screwed with buying a proprietary memory format (hoping for price drops on certain occasions).

Native ps4 remote play!! Sold!

No Resistance or Uncharted?

Nor Tearaway, or Gravity Rush?

GdaTyler1544d ago

Some employ heavy use of the touch screen and/or camera. So they would need to release an update that skips these elements or somehow makes some touchscreen parts compatible using the touchpad on the DS4.

@GdaTyler

That didn't even cross my mind.

what I love the most about the Vita TV is the "native" PS4 remote play using the DS4 which is awesome! Add ALL PS4 games to the list if you have the PS4 already. My advice is, go for the standard edition, not the one bundled with the DS3 and just use your DS4 if you already have it or just get 1 if you haven't.

I think Sony is trying to capitalize on the people that don't have any of the mentioned systems at all....Now you can play Some Vita and some PS3 and also PS Now..

I know I'm getting one for room number 2...And this won't cannibalize any PS4 sales...PS3 is established already...But I fear for the stand alone Vita....

Casuals will like PS TV....Die hards will buy a Vita, that's whats Sony is banking on...

Great product!!!

I agree with you. I have a Vita and I like it because I can take it with me. However I wish they would have given it the ability to plug in to the TV the way my old PSP did. I would rather have my vita portable than stuck at home.

However having the ability to use the PS TV as remote play for my PS4 is AWESOME. I can hook this up in the bedroom and play my PS4 Games when my wife or kids have the living room TV tied up. That has probably sold it for me right there.

I wouldn't worry about PSTV impacting Vita sales. Really, the only logical impact is a positive one. With more Vita hardware out in the wild, the install base grows and that attracts more developers for both the Vita and PSTV. If this takes off, it's win win.

I know I'm on board. I wouldn't mind playing Vita games on my TV, but they had me sold the second I found I could remote play my PS4 in another room. That alone to me is worth $99.

Muzikguy1545d ago

While I think the product is a great idea, I'm a little skeptical still. Can we play Roms of PS1 games that we already own? Also, I don't see any mention of PS2 games. I'm also a bit disappointed that the only way to play PS3 games is with PSNow. You can't own games with that service, as far as I know. Otherwise it seems pretty cool. PS1, PSP, and PSV along with remote play of PS4 games is sweet though. Although having to have a wired connection for remote play is a bit of a downer as well although I can understand why

Anon19741544d ago (Edited 1544d ago )

Wait...what? A wired connection is needed to remote play PS4 games? I see it mentioned in this article, but since when did this happen? That's a deal breaker for me. That's just not going to happen with my current house layout, and that was my primary reason for picking up a PSTV. My Vita remote plays with my PS4 just fine, and pretty much every preview up until this point has used the PSTV wifi when testing PS4 remote play.

What the hell?

As for not owning games on PSNow, is this the first you're hearing about this service? You can't own games over PSNow. It's a streaming game service. It's like Netflix for games, except you rent titles like you do with VOD.

Edit: Phew! False alarm. If you read down in the comments, they clarify that a wired connection is optimal for remote play, but not necessary. Remote play does work over wi-fi.

Muzikguy1544d ago (Edited 1544d ago )

No it's not the first time I've heard of PSNow. I was just hoping there would be a way to play games you owned for PS3 on this thing, without renting them. Nothing about PS2 either that I see unless I'm missing it. Thanks for the heads up on the false alarm! +1

Anon19741544d ago

Gotcha. That would be pretty sweet to be able to play PS3 games already owned through PSNOW. No argument here.
