If you ever wanted to hop on that Playstation TV train, now would be the time to do so. It is on sale at certain retailers only, and it’s only a limited time offer.
The official price point for PlayStation TV, Sony’s newly launched mini console, is $100 for the base console and $140 for the controller bundle, but many North American retailers are selling them for less.
GameSpot were tipped off by a reader that various retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and GameStop, are selling the mini console package for $80 and the controller and game bundle for $100.
Sony has not announced an official PlayStation TV price drop yet, and the company’s official retail store still lists the bundles for $100 and $140, respectively.
However, it was later confirmed by a PlayStation representative that these price drops are retailer-specific, and not indicative of an official price reduction.
The PS TV launched in Japan in 2013, before coming to westward a year later. The mini console can play many PlayStation Vita games in addition to digital PlayStation One and PSP games. Through Remote Play, PS TV can be used to stream PlayStation 4 games from one PS4 console in your home onto a separate television that the PS TV is connected to.
