When I first saw the PS Vita TV, I thought it was vaguely hilarious. But the more I think about it, the more excited I become about the possibilities it holds – possibilities, I must note, that I’m not sure will ever be explored.
The Vita TV isn’t just a tiny PlayStation, or a Vita that you hook up to the TV. It’s a new kind of console that allows users the freedom to choose how to play their games. It’s exciting.
Earlier this week Sony announced a home console version of the PS Vita dubbed the PS Vita TV releasing November 14 in Japan for just $100, or $150 for the system, a DualShock 3, and 8GB memory card. The announcement baffled some and enraged others, but here’s 5 reasons to be just plain pumped.
Sony is still deliberating a western released for the PlayStation Vita TV hardware despite relatively slow sales after its initial launch in Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Andrew House told Eurogamer.
The Vita TV was released in Japan on Nov. 14 and sold 42,000 units during its launch week. House said that Sony’s plans for bringing the console to international territories is unaffected, but the way the device is pitched abroad may change.
The PS Vita TV is a curious thing. Is it a TV streaming box or a Playstation console? It’s both. Some confusion has come about from this device, but a lot more interest and fascination has been generated. Will it appear outside Asia? You’ll hope it will after you find out more.
