Hiroshi said that Sony had created the premise of PS Vita TV, a TV-based spinoff, for consumers who don’t normally play games, but that Sony has found that gamers too have reactive fondly to the idea.
“… When you look at the reaction from gamers, it was unexpectedly positive,” Hiroshi said. “Examining the data from the PlayStation Store, very often the new PS Vita is preordered together with the PS Vita TV.”
Basically gamers said they wanted to play PS Vita games on a big screen, Hiroshi said, and that they expressed interest in purchasing the PS Vita TV and the PlayStation 4 together because of the remote play feature.
Also, the PS Vita TV is consumer friend in the sense of not hitting the wallet so hard, Hiroshi said.
“It’s also because the price is affordable, but the quantity initially allocated is all preordered,” Hiroshi said. “This was unexpected.”
The PS Vita TV is scheduled to launch in Japan on Nov. 14 and in China and Korea in January 2014 for a low price of $100.
However, it’s still unsure if the PS Vita TV will hit shelves in Europe or North America.
