Post-Mortem: The life and failure of the PlayStation TV

"The idea of taking a portable console and letting players hook it up to their television certainly wasn’t a new one. Nintendo had the Super Gameboy and a device that let players play Game Boy Advance games on their Gamecubes. Sony took that one step further and allowed players to literally hook their PSPs up to TVs and have the image output on the screen, much like a wired version of what Nintendo did with the Switch so many years later. Their approach for doing this with the PSTV was a little different, though." -- PlayStation Enthusiast

You saying Switch wirelessly connects to TVs?

I think he means using a wireless controller instead of being wired to the it

It baffles me on why they didn't enable the ds4 for the pstv. The touchpad would have been a perfect match.

You can use the d4 but idk about the touchpad never tried the touchpad

ptownjbo185d ago

You can you the DS4 on PSTV and the touchpad works as a touch screen for some games :)

Stick to video game consoles. Thats what u do best

But the tv was a game console as it plays Vita games and psp...

TheUndertaker85185d ago

Sony released the Vita then dropped their own support for games on the system. The Vita has been staying alive or on life support due to third parties, not Sony.

In this instance Sony didn’t support Vita/PlayStation TV for much of the lifespan of either. At this point it’s left as a “me too” device for Remote Play.
