It was announced today at Gamescom that the PlayStation TV will see a release in Europe on November 14th.

Launching exactly a year after the Japanese release, the re-branded PlayStation TV will release with Velocity Ultra, OlliOlli and Worms Revolution Extreme for a price of €99.

The PlayStation TV will release in North America a month earlier on October 14th. It was announced at E3 that the PlayStation TV will launch in America as either a $99 US stand alone console purchase, or as part of a bundle for $139 US – adding a Dualshock 3 controller, 8GB PSVita memory card, HDMI cable, and a voucher code for LEGO Movie: The Videogame.

Allowing for you to play PlayStation Vita games on your TV, the PlayStation TV will also allow for you to use PlayStation Now and the PS4’s Remote Play functions on other TV’s in your house.

Will you be buying a PlayStation TV? Let us know below! We will bring you more news on the PlayStation TV as we have it!

    Will the psvita tv also run apps like amazon video and netflix?

    • Borshay

      It shares the same Apps as the PS Vita I believe. So Netflix, Crunchyroll, Crackle, Hulu Plus, and Redbox Instant for NA

    • Kyle Wakeling

      What Borshay said, other than the fact that they have to be updated to include support I believe.

      • jpelgrom

        They also have to release those apps for the Vita first (in Europe)

  • Phelan

    That device is called Vita TV* 🙂

    EDIT: but who is going to buy Vita TV if sony screwed up GC showing no Vita stuff?

    • SarcasticPersona

      Actually in the West it is marketed as Playstation TV although Vita TV is what it actually is called in Japan and should be called in the West… Since it is essentially a Vita that connects to your TV.

      • Phelan

        I refuse to call it Playstation TV.

        VITA is powerful device and so is the name. They decided to spit on it, but I won’t follow… it is Vita TV and will stay Vita TV no matter what those morons in SCE will say.

        • Rodolfo Ferreira

          Sony reps would respond “so much for a name”.
          Furthermore how can you expect them to respect the Vita name, they seem to careless about the name and the device.

        • SarcasticPersona

          That is very admirable actually. I shall follow under your lead, sir (or madame). I wont lie in saying that I didnt enjoy some of the games announced, but just ignoring the Vita is really disheartening. However, I will support the Vita to the bitter end.

      • Rodolfo Ferreira

        I agree. Essentially it’s Vita’s hardware inside. That’s why the ‘Vita’ part of the name should remain. The thing with sony is that they’re so ashamed of the platform that they renamed it so the Americans think it has nothing to do with the Vita.

        The PSTV/Vita TV should be Vita’s 2nd version. Not only slim, but also featuring HDMI output, USB and removing support for proprietary memory card.
        But it’s too late now and Vita’s destiny has been sealed. You can watch gamescom today and get to a lot of conclusions and all of them will show you that sony doesn’t care about the device, it’s done, no matter how optimist you are, the Vita is condemned to a slow and painful death.

    GARBAGE SHOWING FOR THE VITA SONY!

    On a different note RiME and The Order: 1886 looked great.

  • nonscpo

    As excited as I am for this release, what Im concerned about is the wifi range of this device. The Vita didnt have very good range in my opinion and it would be a major oversight on sony’s part if they didnt try to expand it.

    • jpelgrom

      The Vita TV (I refuse to call is PS TV) has an ethernet port, so no need to worry about not being able to connect it to the internet.

      • nonscpo

        That is a problem for me because the room Im thinking of placing is not the same place with the Wifi box or has a telephone port to hook it up to.

  • vongruetz .

    Everyone says that the Vita is being pushed as a peripheral for the PS4, but for me, the PS TV & Vita are the ideal combination. The same games, the same great features, but you get to choose how you want to play it. I’ve been excited for this little device ever since it was announced, and after this summer (where I packed up my consoles to come on a vacation with me) I’m even more excited. A mini console that fits in my pocket? I’m sold.

    What I want to know is that in the conference Jim Ryan says, “Most Vita titles” work on the device. Most? Unless something has changed, I would argue that “most” Vita titles actually don’t work on the device. That is, unless something has been changed. I know there were some scattered reports that the DS4 was better implemented into the device to provide some touch functionality, but nothing has been announced on that front yet.
