    Gameradar, congrats. You are host to the first article that has covered every facet and possibility of the VTV. I'm gonna share this like crazy.

    That's a good point about the PlayStation+ games, I'd forgotten about that. I already have a fairly big catalog of Vita games from the service, even if you couldn't play the games that require touchscreen input using the Vita TV (so no games like Uncharted that added touch unnecessarily :( ) it'd still be a good deal of games made available for not all that much.

    HAHA okay, I would LOVE to see the day when someone can take their Vita TV to friends' house and play AC4 over the internet; you'd need a PRETTY high speed connection for that. Good luck with that one Sony. Also, I don't see how this is a step-ahead of MIcrosoft; seeing as how when I buy a game digitally on the Xbox One, that game is tied to my profile wherever I go. So instead of taking my smartphone-sized Vita TV to a friends' house and connecting all that shit up, I just sign in and I'm ready to play. Good thing my Xbox One will already have access to my TV box; without having to spend $95 on another piece of tech. Although, the PS Vita games on full-screen sounds interesting; along with the streaming of all the free PS+ Vita games Sony's going to give out.

    Not really - OnLive worked fine (requires a 3-5mb connection depending on screen size) and this is essentially the same thing.

    Let's rate how much I care about this. 0 I've always wanted to be able to play my "portable" games on the big screen. This is a waste of time.
  • coolasj19 - September 10, 2013 1:49 p.m.

    Paraphrase of what you just said : I don't want it, and I am willfully ignorant of the other features of this device. That means it sucks.
  • rainn'sgaydar - September 9, 2013 1:56 p.m.

    I've had very good experiences with it at home, but I've only played a handful of times that way. But Shadow of the Colossus worked well when I tried it, so the tech is certainly there and capable.

    The intention and what they are doing is really impressive, hopefully its something to stay and wont be brushed off too easily
  • JarkayColt - September 9, 2013 11:05 a.m.

    I'm not sure if I really understand this or not...basically, is it letting you use your devices more interchangeably? So, you can play Vita on your TV, and PS4 on your Vita? In which case, this thing definitely appeals more to those who have a Vita, or who are going to own both it and a PS4. So as this editorial states it could work wonders for Vita support and sales, seeings as most people probably don't own one yet. I mean, I don't, haha. Ugh, but the concept sounds too complicated for me to get my head around.
  • ollyn - September 9, 2013 1:35 p.m.

    You can play Vita games on it without a Vita. So it essentially works as a cheap Vita console, it gos up against things like Ouya and Apple TV but comes with the added caveat that you can stream your PS4. I think it looks great problem at the moment is that some of Vitas best games cannot be played because it lacks the touch screens so you can't play Uncharted or Gravity Rush but some speculate that functionality will be patched into these games. Even without a PS4 or Vita (Handheld) this device can play all PSP,PS1 and the Majority of PS Vita games.
  • Suzushiiro - September 9, 2013 10:23 a.m.

    They actually confirmed a while back that remote play will work over a non-local connection, so you can take the Vita TV on vacation with you and stream PS4 games from your home if you want. This is obviously dependent on a decently reliable internet connection, of course.
  • rainn'sgaydar - September 9, 2013 9:08 a.m.

    I agree. And thank you for almost always responding to questions and suggestions!
  • BladedFalcon - September 9, 2013 7:10 a.m.

    I admit I am still not entirely sure how this thing works, probably because I'm also completely ignorant about the Apple TV or any stuff like that. What little I DO understand about it though, sounds pretty cool, though I'm not sure it's for me. Even at 100 bucks I still find the Vita's catalog of games extremely lacking, and as a hardcore loner who has a TV all of himself, I have no real need or reason to play or use another PS4 anywhere else :P
  • rainn'sgaydar - September 9, 2013 9:11 a.m.

    Gravity Rush and Persona make the $100 point close to worth it. Any third game that catches your eye would probably be enough, if you ask me. Which you didn't, but there's my two cents anyway.
  • Cyberninja - September 9, 2013 9:36 a.m.

    I don't feel its worth it unless you have other games, after all if you have a ps2 already(or get one cheap) you can get vanilla P4 and Gravity Rush is 6 hours and I don't think it will be one of the compatible games because it uses the touch screen for dodge which could be remapped hopefully.
  • BladedFalcon - September 9, 2013 11:26 a.m.

    Yeah, like CyberNinja said, Gravity Rush IS a game I'm interested, but it isn't enough, and since it does use the touchpads and such, it's likely non-compatible :/
  • rainn'sgaydar - September 9, 2013 12:04 p.m.

    Those are condemning arguments, for sure.
  • Bob_Caulk - September 9, 2013 5:30 a.m.

    Even if this is only local at first, that would be a really cool way to get your PS4 on multiple TVs around the house. Say you mainly game on your big screen in the living room, but want to play in bed before going to sleep as well. Well with this guy you could easily stream your PS4 into your bedroom.
  • Shinn - September 9, 2013 5:29 a.m.

    I kinda wish it had a micro hdmi port though, a screen that could play this would be ridiculously expensive here in NZ. We're still behind in tech, and this is a pretty cutting edge device.
  • Shinn - September 9, 2013 5:30 a.m.

    Hopefully it does, but it's difficult to tell that from their pr stuff.
