PlayStation TV gets some great price reductions

NSG: PlayStation TV is a neat device that lets you play a selection of Vita games on your TV using a DualShock controller. What we find especially useful though is the PS4 streaming for playing your PS4 on a different TV in the house. Moving your PS4 up and downstairs is set to become a thing of the past. This sounds cheaper than buying a new PS4 when you inevitably fumble it too.

These latest US/UK prices are amongst the best we’ve ever seen for new units. There are some preowned options too to chip a few extra bucks off.

I might hold out for a $20-$30 PS TV with a memory card during Black Friday.

ABizzel13103d ago

If you're looking for a PS4 as well, I think Best Buy is bundling in the PSTV with the PS4 on Cyber Monday.

Death3103d ago

The cheapest memory card costs more than $20. You are essentially saying you would buy a memory card if they discount it and give you a free PSTV.

Eidolon3103d ago

I got my memory cards off eBay, 2 4GB's for $5 ea, 8gb for $10, and 16GB for $20.

Wow what fake or lucky prices even for used vita cards.

Current cheapest used vita card prices on US eBay:

4GB: $12 - 8GB: $20 - 16GB: $35 - 32GB: $55 - 64GB: $88

Personally anything less than 64GB is not enough and it's not worth more than $20.

100% real and from U.S. non top-sellers, used/pre-owned, obviously, but they work perfectly and I have had no issues, and can't tell them apart from my friends' who bought them from retail. I got them about a year ago, and I waited for the $5 per 4GB, I sniped a couple, low-ball best offered on the others and yeah, I guess I lucked out.

I remote play at work on the PC monitor with my PSTV.

Very cool little gadget, especially under $50.


People LOVED the reveal.

Double_O_Revan3103d ago

I was one of them. Held so much promise.

Double_O_Revan3103d ago

What it really needs is some support. I've had 2 for a while now, and they're great. Love being able to remote play in other rooms or even when I'm away from home. Just wish it got better support and more features. It had so much potential, but Sony just kind of brushed it under the rug

Sony discontinues PlayStation TV in US and Europe

If you’ve been holding off on buying a PlayStation TV but were planning on picking one up eventually, you better get moving.

If I could play EVERY PS 1/2 game along with PSP and Vita games I would have bought one.

miyamoto3005d ago

If only they put an A/V out cable on the PS Vita like they did with PSP.............. instant micro console for my 46" HD TV. Save Sony multi millions of dollars.

I told Shuhei Yoshida that was the way to go but they wouldn't listen.

KentBenMei3004d ago

It can play most and it is cheap. I hear you but it's a sweet deal, it gets hate for not being perfect which is unfair.

NarooN3005d ago

Why introduce it and then discontinue it like two seconds later? Lol wow.

XanderZane3005d ago

Because no one was really buying it. They even cut the price in 1/2 and PSTV's were just collecting dust on retail shelves from what I've heard. I wonder what they will do with all that overstock in their inventory? Well the Atari 2600 ET games have been all dugged up, so they can now bury this waste of hardware in it's spot. Oh well. Glad I didn't waste money on it.

TheColbertinator3005d ago

Too much hardware on the market. Sony needs to avoid Sega's mistake back in the 90s.

If Sony intends to compete with a focus,trimming out unprofitable hardware and features is quite efficient.

rezzah3005d ago

Plus casuals wouldn't understand what this is. this is more geared towards core gamers who wish to play older games, but it doesn't contain all the games they wish to play.

ZeekQuattro3005d ago

Surprised it lasted this long. Not even a name change made a difference.

The_Truth_24_73005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

Sony really dropped the ball on this one. It couldn't even do Netflix and they killed the YouTube app.
Got one on day 1 and I've only used it a handful of times. Freedom Wars is what's keeping it from collecting dust recently.

Kribwalker3005d ago

Not to mention I can't get mine to stream the ps4 well in a room 20feet away......I bought one so my kids could play the ps4 in the other room, but it doesn't stream well
