Putting portable games onto the big screen is quite the rage these days ever since Android-based gaming rigs like Ouya entered the market a few months ago (of course, we could probably trace it back to the Game Boy Player for the Nintendo GameCube which seems to be handheld’s first foray onto the big screen). Nevertheless, Sony is entering the market with its new Playstation Vita TV, a $100 console that can play most PS Vita games through the use of DualShock controllers!
The system itself measures 60 mm x 100mm and will carry access to Sony’s Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services, as well as Twitter, Hulu, and other media providers. The system can also connect to the PS4 for remote play. Ports include HDMI out, PS Vita memory card slot, a PS Vita game slot, USB, power, and an ethernet port. As of right now, Sony’s new console has only been announced for Japan, but it’ll probably be released worldwide sometime later on. The current release date is November 14, 2013 and will also have an available bundle for just $150 that includes the console, a controller, and storage card.
