PlayStation TV launches in North America next month photo
PlayStation TV launches in North America next month
by Kyle MacGregor

PlayStation TV launches across North America starting October 14, Sony announced today.

The new set-top box plays a selection of Vita games, PSP titles, PS One Classics, PS3 games via PlayStation Now, and can stream PS4 content via Remote Play.

PS TV will be available standalone for $100 or as part of a $140 bundle, including an 8GB memory card, The LEGO Movie Videogame and a DualShock 3 controller. It comes with 1GB of built-in storage out of the box, meaning that while a pricey memory card isn't necessarily required, folks won't be able to get too far without one.

The device will launch in Europe one month later, crossing the pond on November 14. There, the device will retail for £85/€100 and include a voucher for three digital Vita games: Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra and OlliOlli.

While the PS TV will support nearly 700 titles available at launch, it doesn't play everything. You can check out the full list of compatible Vita games right here.

Here's a full playthrough of the second Mighty No. 9 beta stage photo
Here's a full playthrough of the second Mighty No. 9 beta stage
by Chris Carter

The second Mighty No. 9 beta stage focuses on the female No. 2 boss, who is a master of ice and water. In addition to my playthrough of the first stage here, you can also get a better look at the next phase of the beta above in my second playthrough.

I actually liked this level a bit more. While the first stage (No. 5) was a standard romp throughout, I like how No. 2's level mixed things up with a water section as well as an ice portion, and seeing the fire-based No. 1 in the background was a little more interesting than No. 2's appearance in the original beta stage.

My main concern at this point is the art direction, which can look a bit drab in terms of the level design (the two are very similar) and the enemy models themselves, despite the fact that they have great base mechanics. Since this is a beta the full version will no doubt have a bit more flair, but how much flair is yet to be seen.
