Eurogamer writes "Vita TV got off to a slow start in Japan - but that hasn't put Sony off of releasing it in the west.
The PlayStation micro-console launched in Japan on 14th November and sold a modest 42,000 units during launch week.
But according to Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andrew House, PlayStation's plan for Vita TV in the west remain unaffected.
"The positioning of Vita TV may be different between Japan and some of the other markets," he told Eurogamer.
Currently, the roughly $99 Vita TV reworks Vita, PSP, PSone and some retro games so they can be played on a HDTV with a DualShock 3 controller. The tiny machine is based on the Vita handheld console, with its touch-based user interface re-sized for big screens.
But it's also a media streaming device, and can extent PlayStation 4 gaming to a second screen when used with a DualShock 4.
House said Sony wanted to launch Vita TV in Japan first because there streaming is a relatively new concept, and the company wanted to establish a market."
