We got two big Playstation Vita related reveals today. First off, we got the Playstation Vita TV, a miniature home console version of the Vita that you can play on your TV. The Vita TV will be able to play retail copies of Vita games, along with download versions of Vita and PSP games. The system will use Dual Shock 3 controllers, and will connect to a TV through HDMI. Not all Vita games will be compatible with Vita TV, especially ones that heavily uses the Vita’s touchscreen feature. Also, the Vita TV console can be used for Remote Play with the Playstation 4. Currently, it’s only been confirmed to be released in Japan : 9,954 yen for just the console, or set with a controller and storage card for 14,995 yen (about $100 and $150 respectively).
