The Vita TV arrived in Japan as a very unique device that some Western players really wanted their hands on. Sony agrees that the little device is worth it as tonight they announced PlayStation TV is coming to stores.
PlayStation TV is a standalone box that has access to a wealth of PlayStation content. It can play a majority of Vita titles (aka, not ones that require touch screen play). Beyond that, it plays much of the other content available on PSN such as PSOne Classics. It also has access to the upcoming PS Now streaming service.
You’ll be able to nab a PS TV for $99. There’s also a bundle available for $139 which includes: HDMI cable, 8GB memory card, PS3 controller, and the Lego Movie game.
