In another surprising TGS announcement, Sony has introduced Playstation Vita TV. Arriving on November 14 in Japan, the PS Vita TV is essentially a PS Vita without a screen that hooks up to your television and is controlled by up to two Dualshock 3 controllers. The price of this little device comes to about $100 without a controller but I’m sure many of us have them already. There will also be a bundle that includes a controller.
Using PS Vita TV you will have access to many video content services such as Hulu, Netflix etc. but you will also have access to PSN and a library of more than 1,300 PS1, PSP and Vita titles. Of course there will some limitations due to the lack of touchscreen, camera and other Vita hardware features not included but the PS Vita TV will also allow users to stream PS4 games much in the way the PS Vita will feature Remote Play. The Remote Play feature using the PS Vita TV will support the use of the Dualshock 4.
What are your thoughts on PS Vita TV? Is this a game changer or further evidence of the Vita’s demise?
