Tiny new system, big potential


New Sony product PS Vita TV lets you play Vita games on your television.

Andrew House took the stage at a pre-TGS press conference this morning in Japan to show off this new pocket-sized system. This 6cm x 10cm device will allow your TV to access Hulu and other like services, watch PS Store videos/movies, tweet, email, and much more.

And as the name suggests, the PS Vita TV will let you play Vita games on your television, as well as downloadable PSP and PSOne games. There's even multiplayer support for Vita games. Just keep in mind that Vita games that need touchscreen action won't work with this system.

Amazingly, it's also a companion device for the PS4. Via remote play it will allow you to play PS4 games from another room, for example. 

In Japan it will be released for 9,480 yen (about $95) this November 15. A bundle with an 8GB memory card and Dual Shock 3 controller will also be released, priced at about $150.


The PS Vita TV is tiny -- just big enough for its LAN, USB, and HDMI ports (yes, it comes with a HDMI cable) on the back edge. And aside from a card slot, that's about it. On the wireless side, expect WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Video resolution tops out at 1080i, with 720p and 480p being options.

Do you want one?
