PS Vita is small box that allows your TV to "evolve" with digital content. Also plays PS Vita games and allows for PS4 remote play.

 

9,480 yen, about $100, for the PS Vita TV.

 

 

Nov 14 in Japan

Today in Tokyo, Sony introduced PS Vita TV. It is six centimeter by ten centimeter device, making it the smallest piece of PlayStation hardware.
 
It will allow you to enjoy video and network streaming services on your TV, such as Hulu and NicoNico Douga. It also allows PS Vita TV owners to play games.
 

More to follow

Sony have just surprised us all by revealing PlayStation Vita TV, a 6cm by 10cm (tiny) device which allows you to watch video and network services or even play Vita and PSP games on your TV, controlled by a DualShock 3.
 
It appears to be a small console which is powered by the same stuff as the Vita, and includes an HDMI port for hooking up to your TV. There’ll be 1300 titles available
 
The system also works as a companion device, which allows you to play PS4 games in another room without the need for a second console. That’s amazing.
 
It’ll be available in Japan on November 14th and will cost 9,945 yen or 14,994 yen with tax for a bundle including a controller and an 8GB memory card.
 
So, that’s about £70 for a device that allows you to play Vita games on your TV, or PS4 games in another room, as well as a plethora of TV and video content. I’m in.

Do people really want to play vita games on their tv? I mean, some vita games are even lower res than wii games so they'll look quite hideous hooked up to the typical 1080p display.

It does PS1/PSP and multiroom for PS4 games as well. I'm sure there is some sort of upscaling going on, it seems to do Netflix in HD so should output at 1080p.

Sadly no 1080p, it's 720p or 1080i

Not that Vita games can run in 1080p, but still.

 

DS4 compatible for those wondering (http://scei.co.jp/co...f/130909c_e.pdf)

PlayStation®4 (PS4TM) remote play

As with PS Vita, PS Vita TV will also support PS4TM remote play and Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK®4) through future system software update*4. This will allow users to enjoy most of the PS4TM games on PS Vita TV as if they are playing it on the PS4TM system.

So for $100 I can play my PS4 games in 2 rooms without having to move crap around and/or buy another console? Sold :p.

I'm guessing you're referring to the minis. I can't find any info on resolution though; does anyone have a source? All I can find is the Vita's screen resolution, which is 960x544, higher than the Wii.

That's the resolution of the screen, yes, but many games don't run at that resolution. Some games run as low as 640x368. Which would indeed put those certain titles just a little below the wii.

The lack of 1080p is a real shame :(

How do the Vita games that use the back touch thing work though?

Patched and/or once the DS4 is out it at least has a touchpad.

Random, off topic question, but why are the Japanese gamers names written with the characters from a Latin alphabet, while the rest of the text is written in what ever system of Japanese they are using?

 

Just wondering.

I'd have to try it first before I can really comment, but having used the back touchpad of the Vita, and being rather impressed by it, the front touchpad on the DS4 seems like it'd be a markedly inferior experience.

 

Maybe you can use the Vita to control the Vita TV  :rofl:

 

 

Edit: Even if the DS4 will be out when the Vita TV is launched, will it come with the Vita TV? Because those press images above show no touchpad on the included controller. Also, The Verge says that

" Not all PS Vita games will be supported, however, since the DualShock 3 controller lacks the Vita's touch-sensitive hardware required by certain software titles."
