Sony have revealed a lot of stuff at its pre-TGS press conference, and other than the PS Vita redesign, the most surprising aspect had to be the unveiling of the piece of Vita-related hardware. This newest addition is called PS Vita TV, and what it does is let you play Vita games on your T.V…..and some other cool stuff as well.
PS Vita TV is a really small piece of hardware, not much larger than a deck of cards. The dimensions are- 6c, by 10cm, and its easily the smallest PlayStation hardware ever.
The main idea of the PS Vita TV is to let gamers play Vita games on a big screen using a DualShock 3 controller, but not only that. While this device has card slots for Vita games, and accepts Vita memory cards, it will also let you use video streaming services such as Hulu. It also allows you to play a PS4 via Remote Play with DualShock 4, however this function will only work with a system update.
It allows you to play PSone Classics and PSP games through it, using DualShock 3. And it will connect to PlayStation 4 to play Vita games through the PS4 itself.
As of now, we know its only coming out in Japan on the 14th of November and will cost about $95. A special edition of it, which consists of an 8 gig Vita memory card and a DualShock 3 controller will come for around $150.
