Basically it's a PS Vita for your tv that can play PS Vita games and compete against Apple Tv/Roku as a media box. All for 99$. I don't know about you but this sounds amazing.

Persona 4 Golden box.

I might actually be interested in the Vita now considering it's basically a $100 price drop.

Perhaps it is because i have a Vita and use it when I don't have TV access, but this does not really interest me. Perhaps when I know more about what all it does I will change my mind though.

Probably not. If you already have a Vita, I doubt you'll care about getting basically another one just to play on your TV. For other people though, this is a cheap way to play good quality games while also having access to Hulu and Netflix. It's a mini console essentially.

The other thing it can do is allow you to play PS4 games on any TV in the house. (I think something like that.) But yeah that requires a PS4.

Also I realized i can get DanganRonpa when it comes out in America.

This is a feature that may spark a little bit of my interest. But yeah Local, if it basically would just let me play vita on TV then yeah it would not be for me.

This is interesting, will probably give OUYA a run for its money.

Ouya doesn't need anything to give it a run for its money.

Might have to get me one of these. There are several titles from both the PSP and Vita that I have wanted to play, but I just couldn't see paying 250$ as being worth it.

Good point. Let's pretend Ouya didn't happen and people weren't stupid enough to kickstart it.

The Ouya is great for developers, but it was a test to see if there is a bridge between the casual phone gamer and the console gamer. Ouya proves there isn't that bridge or market yet. I'm glad people are still willing to take risks. Which is why I'm glad to see this coming from Sony. If this is popular, I can easily see Nintendo doing something similar with DS/3DS games and the gamepad.

This squashed any interest I had in the Ouya. Methinks I'll ask for one for Christmas if they're out at that time. It's a shame that touch-based games won't be supported though. It would be neat if they later added PS4 controllers support, utilizing the touch panel on that.

It's not coming out in America this year. SCEA is focusing completely on PS4 this holiday while SCEJ is focusing on PS Vita/TV for Japan. We will be getting it eventually though.

they are going to support dualshock 4 in the future.

I never even considered getting a vita but this really interests me. I might pick it up (mostly for Dangan Ronpa).

Kinda wondering how well Vita games would actually display on a big TV. Seems to me like it'd be stretchy.

Regardless, though, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested. Perhaps I shall pick this up at some point were it to come over here.

I hope this does really well too. Make Nintendo take a look into doing something similar!

Really like how it's a hub too. Don't know if I'll get this or not whenever it comes out since I've already got a Vita but its a possibility.
Of course I'll need to actually have some physical games for Vita for that to be a point of interest.

[ Post made via iPhone ]We do NOT want something similar for 3DS. The thought of polygonal 240p games stretched out to fit an HDTV makes me barf.

I haven't been all that interested in getting a Vita, but for a price like this, I'd consider it. Even though I'd prefer to have an actual handheld rather than having to play on my TV, paying almost $200 for an actual Vita wouldn't be worth it for just a handful of games I'd want to play. Media box features are cool too I guess, but I already have a bunch of other stuff that can do that.

I dig it. Same principle as the Game Boy Player, really. And the cheaper price tag is nice.

I am wondering how all the touch screen and rear touch etc of the Vita games would be handled or if those game just wont be able to be played. I have played a lot of Vita games that have those elements for no other reason than to have them, and think it would be a shame if due to that they couldn't be played on the Vita TV.

I think they said they are gonna see how it does in Japan first and then see about bringing it west. So there is still a chance it will.

Regardless of whether or not it'll be released in the states, PS Vita is region unlocked. If I recall this thing will only read game cards(though if it can read memory cards as well I'd be even happier) Yeah we may have to pay more, but psh If I can record any PS Vita games without having to upgrade to a v.2000 just to plug my vita to a tele I'm down.
