Viva la Vita!
Sony revealed a new console at the Tokyo Game Show today and it’s called the PS Vita TV. It’s basically a $100 PS Vita that hooks up to your TV via HDMI and let’s you play software titles released for the PS Vita, PSP and PS1 with a Dualshock 3 controller. It will also let you watch streaming video services like Hulu and will include remote play support for the PS4.
The tiny 6cm by 10cm console features a PS Vita game card slot, memory card slot (with 1GB on board), one USB 2.0 port and HDMI output. Sony will also be selling a bundle with a 8GB memory card and a white Dualshock 3 controller.
But wait, there’s more.
Sony also revealed the PS Vita Slim; a redesigned version of PlayStation Vita that comes in six colors and is 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than current the PS Vita. It even has better battery life.
So what’s the catch? So far, all this good news from the TGS is Japan only. Not to worry though, Sony would be crazy to not let this come to stateside where I can buy it as fast as possible.
