So this pretty much confirms a Persona 4: The Golden Endurance run, right?

PSVita TV? Care to explain?

TV app for PS Vita or....can you play Vita games on your TV?

Edit: This sounds sweet, price isn't that bad either.

Sony revealed a ton of stuff tonight at its pre-TGS press conference, but perhaps the biggest surprise (well, other than a PS Vita redesign) was the unveiling of an all-new piece of Vita-related hardware. It’s called PS Vita TV, and it lets you play Vita games on your television... and do a bunch of other stuff, too.

PS Vita TV is a tiny piece of hardware. It’s about as big as a deck of cards, measuring 6cm by 10cm. It’s the smallest PlayStation hardware ever.

The idea of PS Vita TV is to let you play Vita games on the big screen using a DualShock 3 controller, but there’s actually more to it than that. While PS Vita TV has a card slot for Vita games, and accepts Vita memory cards, it will also let you use video streaming services (such as Hulu) and more.

It will also let you play PSone Classics and PSP games through it, again using the DualShock 3. And it will connect to PlayStation 4 so that you can play Vita games through PS4, as well.

PS Vita TV launches in Japan on November 14th, and will cost 9,480 Yen ($95). A special verison of it, packing an 8 gig Vita memory card and a DualShock 3 controller, will cost 14,980 ($150). It sounds like it will eventually be released in the west, though a specific release date (as well as pricing information) is still unknown.

ED: Oh, and it can also act as a slingbox for your PS4 (so you can play your PS4 in other rooms)

@verendus: It should be up on most of the major news sites, but yeah. It is kind of a PSVita for your TV.

My future is gonna be completely dominated by Sony products, isn't it? Sigh...

+1 for VITATV

I'd like a Quick Look, though.

#12 Edited by benpicko (1924 posts) -

Yes it 100% does. I now see the point of this. Bravo Sony

At least we're now getting fucking quicklooks, at the very least. :)

Well, it's probably coming until 2014 to US. So VITA quicklooks and P4G endurance Run in 2014.

Confirmed

Am I reading this correctly in that it doesn't actually have to tether to a Vita and that the hardware itself can run VITA games? They also mention support for streaming services, if it also has some sort of media centre functionality, this is something I could actually totally get excited about.

Yeah, it is basically a small Vita that attaches to your TV. No full Vita required. You put the Vita games directly into it. And it can stream content like a PS3 can. It can also wirelessly link to a PS4 to allow for remote play on another TV. It's an interesting little thing.

Holy crap that PSVita TV sounds great!

#19 Posted by Rafaelfc (1287 posts) -

It's a really weird idea, but sounds like it could be a pretty awesome device.

At the very least I hope it means we get more Vita quick looks in the future.

#20 Posted by Angouri (223 posts) -

VITA QUICK LOOKS!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

#21 Posted by Aviar (366 posts) -

Yeah, this type of device should really make the job of doing quick looks and reviewing/playing Vita games much easier.

My only concern is that they have only talked about this as a Japanese release and I haven't seen anything stated about a US release unless I have missed it so far. I'm hoping this isn't going to be the next PSX and only be released in Japan. This piece of hardware looks like it will be something that really complements the PS4 nicely.

At that price point, it could a huge success. Enthusiasts like us will pay $400 for the latest and greatest, but almost everybody else will pick the cheaper option. This little PS puck is probably going to end up hooked to more T.V.'s than the PS4.

It's nice to want things.

Certain vita games only, as it uses a ps3 dualshock and thus is missing the touch aspect.

There was something I saw saying you could tether a real vita to this as well and play all vita games on tv and then use the vita touchscreen for anything touch related.

Its an interesting idea for sure.
