Sony Announces Vita TV For Japananese Market


This morning Sony had a semi surprising announcement. It’s taking the PSP/PS Vita pairing and making them into a set-top box or micro console of sorts. Currently only available in Japanese territories, Vita TV will be a living room micro console. It will offer streaming services like Hulu and will be able to play select PSP and PS Vita games. Vita TV will also offer remote play for PlayStation 4 games when the console launches later this year (November 15th).

The device will sell for 9,480 Yen ($95.31) alone and forĀ 14,280 ($153.58) bundled with a white Dual Shock 3 controller and 8GB memory card. Vita TV will hit Japan on November 14th, 2013, just one day before the U.S. release of the PS4. There’s no word as of yet if the console will make it’s way outside of Japanese markets.
