PlayStation TV


Just when you thought that PlayStation couldn’t come up with anything cooler than the PS4 or Project Morpheus, they up and create the PS TV. With this device users can download select PS Vita games, classic PS One and PSP titles through the PlayStation Store and play them through a second television.

Also included are the ability to stream select PlayStation 3 games through PlayStation Now, and use the Remote Play function to do the same for PlayStation 4 games — all using WiFi. The PlayStation 4 also allows interested gamers to purchase movies, TV shows, and music through the PS Store. Incredibly small, the PS TV is about the size of an external hard drive, making it portable enough to be moved from TV to TV.

While this wasn’t demoed at the Gotham Hall event, at a price point of $99.99, this simple-to-use device makes it easier to play games — especially in a crowded house full of people who all love to watch or play something. This product will be available for the whole family this fall. For those who might be interested in getting a bigger bang for the buck, the PS TV will also be sold as a bundle ($139.99) and will include a DualShock 3 controller, 8GB memory card and a game voucher for The LEGO Movie.
