Sony Reveals New Hardware: PS Vita TV
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 even let you play your PlayStation 4 via Remote Play with DualShock 4; this functionality will come later via system update.

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.

RE: Sony Reveals New Hardware: PS Vita TV
Quote:The new model will be 15mm in width - 20 per cent thinner than the existing model - and weigh 219g, making it 15 per cent lighter.

1GB of onboard memory will also be included, (Only 1gb Dotdotdot) meaning you won't need a memory card for game saves and smaller downloads.

The new Vita also features an improved battery life (boosted by an extra hour, now up to six hours gameplay time).

And it'll be available in a range of colours yellow, pink, white, gray, lime green and and light blue.

But the Vita's OLED screen has been replaced by an LED one, Sony mentioned.

And also the 64GB memory cards it's priced at 10,479 yen (roughly $105).

Pure HDMI, as far as I could tell from the pictures.

RE: Sony Reveals New Hardware: PS Vita TV
oooh releasead on my birthday (albeit in japan). umm it is to my knowledge that the vita has touchscreen functionality and as far as I'm aware the dualshock 3 has no touchpad. how do sony plan to address this in games that require it?

RE: Sony Reveals New Hardware: PS Vita TV
Just found out there's a list of compatible games working for the VitaTV

http://www.jp.playstation.com/psvitatv/game/psvitalist/

an HDMI port would have been easier for the ones that already own a Vita.

RE: Sony Reveals New Hardware: PS Vita TV
A lot of [dumb] people were fooled into thinking all their Vita games would work. No touchsceen, trackpad, etc.
And then*


*fine print strikes again.



Still a nice idea. Priced too high, IMO.
