A new video has just been released that introduces the PlayStation TV to western markets.
This might be the best value in gaming.
I have a PS3, a PS4 and a Vita. I want to get this, but not now with all the games coming in October and November. Not urgent because I can already do anything it can on something else (except play vita games on tv). Plus if I wait, I will be able to find this a lot more easily, because I bet it will be all sold out for a while like all new consoles.
Cant wait to get this! think i will set this up in my bedroom. PS4 is in the living room. so we'll see.
It's so cute..! I'll probably get one for the remote play. I think they have an uphill battle on their hands in the streaming box space though. Far too much competition from the likes of Amazon, Roku, Apple, everyone - If Sony are serious about streaming they really need to push that and get fully behind it, as their competitors aren't just going to sit around.
this has more advantages as a second system to PS4 owners than Xbox One and Wii U. its very small and compact unlike the gigantic Xbox One. i'll get it to play PSP and PS1 games. anyone know if PlayStation plus games from Vita carry over ?
Persona 4 Golden and Danganronpa 1 and 2 are must haves. All PS+ games for the Vita carry over.
i think this will count as another vita device. dont qoute me on this, but i think each psn account can have upto 4 vitas to freely share games with. not sure what happens when you go online with 2 of the same accounts though. this device has some advantages over xbone and wiiU as secondary console. but if you have consoles in living room then pstv is ideal for bedroom/any other room whilst the xbone/wiiU is the better secondary device for the living room. think it really depends on your set up at home.
With Vita/PSP games, you can have them installed on two systems at the same time. I'm guessing that the PSTV will be counted as a Vita/portable. So it would count as one of those installs. PS1 games can be installed on two consoles (PS3) and two portables at the same time. You get a little more flexibility with them. As for having 2 accounts at the same time, it doesn't work. If you had Killzone Mercenary on two systems, only one of them could play online at any given time. You would still be able to do local ad-hoc play though.
The PS+ games should carry over. Sony has offered over 15 compatible games over the last 7 months alone, so hopefully you grabbed them all.
i've been grabbing all of the games that are free ever since i got a PS4 but kind of regret now buying PlayStation plus sooner as there were a lot of interesting Vita games i have missed but have got games like Dragon's Crown which is compatible. have a lot of PSP games from years ago which is the reason i'm buying one to play them on a big screen. as i traded my PS3 about a month ago i want to get the most of my PlayStation subscription. i think i have enough games to that essentially makes the PlayStation TV free after a few games i have downloaded. i can't wait and the best thing is it won't take much space. very small and compact.
Would love to know all the titles that can be downloaded to this. I unplugged my PS3 when I got my PS4 and I would love to regain access to those PSone classics that I bought.
well here is the list http://blog.eu.playstation....
Thanks very much!
its ok. think these videos need to be more informative. maybe release a series of adverts in the future to highlight each feature.
I agree. Everything I've read gives scant details on the non-game content offerings. What services will it support? DLNA, etc?
thats the main problem, for someone to be on gaming sites to not know what pstv provides is a bad thing, the general public wouldnt have a clue what this device is for. and im afraid, no dlna. no announcement on that and i presume its going to do exactly what the vita can.
If it supports the same features as the Vita then you'll be able to use into play your own music, movies, and photos locally while also being able to stream content from a Pc. This is in addition to the Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube apps.
Shouldn't the PS4 remote play be the headline feature? Or will they sell more if they position it as a console that plays Vita/PS classics?
they dont want to limit themselves to 10million users that may or maynot bother with that feature. judging from the marketing stance of this youtube clip, its taking a does everything stance. media functions like access to a bunch of movies, play a bunch of amazing games. connect to ps4.
Here's hoping this will result in more Vita games. And less games using the rear touch screen.
