Taking on Apple TV, Ouya and other Android based boxes at the same time is not an easy thing to do, but Sony is going for the win with the PS Vita TV. The small (6x10cm) box that will play PS Vita games, connect to the PS Network to play PSP and PS1 classics as well as connect to TV based services like Hulu and NicoNico Douga (in Japan). You can also use Sony’s great Twitter app.
The box has a slot for Vita games, memory cards, HDMI output, Ethernet ports and USB ports.
Not all Vita games will be available for play due to the various features the Vita utilizes like the touch screen, but over 100 Vita titles will be available.
The device can also be used to connect to the [amazon_link id=”B00CMQTVQO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Playstation 4[/amazon_link] for remote play when your console is not in the room with you. Am I the only one that thinks this is pure brilliance? If my PS4 is hooked up in my living room and I want to play it in my bedroom with my PS Vita TV in there I can just remote connect to the console? Nice.
PS Vita TV releases on November 14th in Japan for $100. A set that comes with a Dualshock 3 controller will cost $150. There is no worldwide release information.
