Sony has a new product ready to launch into Japanese markets in November called the PS Vita TV. Announced Sep. 9th at Sony’s TGS press conference the PS Vita TV was one of the many reveals made. The device is the smallest piece of Sony hardware to date, measuring 6cm by 10cm.
The PS Vita TV feels an interesting niche letting gamers play Vita games on a larger television screen and/or with a DualShock3 controller. The new hardware will provide other services like streaming videos and playing music as well. Another nice addition is that it will let users play PS One classics and PSP games with a DualShock 3 too.
Some are saying the device will rival the Apple TV but it seems to provide different services and to be geared towards a different demographic. Priced around $100 the PS Vita TV will be launched first in Japan on November 14th. There are no definite plans for a release in other countries but a U.S. release seems likely. For loyal Sony users the PS Vita TV will be the perfect addition to your entertainment center complete with PS4 and PS Vita.
The launch in Japan will offer two purchasing choices for the PS Vita TV. The new hardware can be purchased alone for approximately $100. Another option is a bundled PS Vita TV with a DualShock 3 controller and 8GB vita memory card for nearly $150.
