Introducing PlayStation TV, an entertainment system that extends the capabilities of the PlayStation 4, allowing players to stream their PS4 games to any TV in their house. PS TV makes the ideal companion to PS4, enhancing the user experience and connectivity of the console and providing a second gaming station for an attractive price. Released in Japan and Asia in November 2013 as PlayStation Vita TV, the system has since continuously evolved through software updates and content enhancements. Adopting the same chip sets and system software as the PlayStation Vita, PS TV has a 6.5 x 10.5 cm ultra slim size – the smallest of any PlayStation platform that connects to a TV. In response to the demands from users in Europe and the PAL region, SCEE will introduce the system under the new name and colour, and will deliver entertainment experiences only possible on PS TV. The main features of the PS TV system are as follows: PlayStation 4 remote play: As with PS Vita, PS TV supports PS4 remote play and wireless controllers (DualShock 3 or 4). This will allow PS4 owners in the living room to continue playing a game on a PS TV system in their bedroom. You can also enjoy most of your PS4 games on PS TV as if you were playing it on your PS4 system (games requiring PlayStation Camera are not compatible). PlayStation Now: Once PlayStation Now is rolled out across the PAL region, PS TV users will be able to comfortably enjoy PlayStation 3 games via streaming. A vast lineup of software titles: PS TV offers a huge library of PS Vita, PSP, and classic PS One titles. You'll be able to enjoy all of these titles using a DualShock 3 or 4 controller.

crap after sales service I mean no after sales or before sales service , once you order your on your own. the worst company even paypal know this

Ordered, thanks!

Will get one of these when it hit £20-25 ish

I've just bought, was waiting for the local CEX to get stock at £32 but for a few quid more I've gone for this.

i thought with these being given away with ps4 they would be below £30 by now, might hang on a bit longer... but heat for now!

You get free games with a new one or you'll get about £5 for the game card on eBay if you don't want them so this works out better

Will be able January time then as its gone from £80-£35 in 3months lol its rubbish no one wants it

Waste of time if your thinking about using one to play PS4 games online using the streaming

Wish I could sell my Vita and get this but the non compatibility with some of the Vita's best games just makes it pointless. How can games like Uncharted Golden Abyss not be patched for DualShock support?

How do you checkout with paypal

One of the best things I've bought this year, yes I am serious. That said, I bought this with no interest in streaming my PS4 and so I haven't even tried. I bought it purely to play my back catalogue of PS1 and PSP digital games on the big screen, and they play superb. The PSP games look great for what they are scaled up to a 50" screen. Resistance Retribution, Obscure, Medievil Resurrection and Monster Hunter to name just a few. PS1 games look good even with the forced 4:3 screen ratio. And even though not every Vita game works on this, being able to play Killzone Mercenary (looks amazing BTW) with full dualshock support made it worth the cost alone. It's like playing a whole new game. Basically, if you have a PS+ subscription/back catalogue of PSN games, dualshock 3 or 4 already and a memory card, I don't think you can go wrong.

Does this come with the 3 free games offer?

Yes, all new versions will. Although if you have had PS+ a while, you'll probably find you already have 2 of them.

Seriously, avoid this retailer...

Streaming PS4 is not the primary function of this device.
primary function of this thing is to play Vita games on TV.and it is great for that.
I don't understand why people care about streaming PS4 games so much to begin with.

Can u use the sky app with this?

Unless you have a dedicated TV for your PS4, it's very useful. Giving you access to your PS4 anywhere in your house that you have TV. Most people will have their PS4 on the main household TV, and using that for a gaming session might not always be convenient.

However, whether the damn thing actually works without lag, graphical artifacts or dropouts is another thing all together.

Interesting. How does it fare with indie games? I have quite a few on my vita.. hotline miami, olliolli, limbo, luftrausers. Will I be able to play these on the TV? If so I could be tempted..

Have been wanting one of these. HOWEVER, videogamebox's (lack of) customer service is downright diabolical. Bought from them once. Never again.

If there are ever any issues with warranty or just problems in general, such as them sending you a different item/model, you're on your own. As the other posters have already said, do not buy from videogamebox.

They even have the following on their site under T&Cs - "Warranty Disclaimer (this section was copied word for word from another site, I should add)
This site and the materials and products on this site are provided "as is" and without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied."

Is this legal?

Awful, fraudulent retailer.

Yes you will be able to play any -supported- vita game.just check playstation tv vita compatibility list on google or on sony's website.from your list I know olliolli works,infact it is supplied as a free code with many ps tvs.
Plastation Tv was originally called PS Vita TV,because it's essentially a vita hardware without screen.they changed the name to this confusing PS TV,because of lack of interest in Vita I guess.
some games are not compatible due to lack of touch screen controls,relying on camera etc.but most are compatible and look and play great on tv.
ps one classics and psp digital games are also supported.

Indie games work and look great on the PSTV. When you consider the original scale ratio they were made for, the way they upscale so well on the PSTV is a minor miracle. All the games you stated btw work with the PSTV so you're good to go there. A slight annoyance is that the compatibility list on a very small few games differ between the US and EU, Duke Nukem for example. Check this list, but bare in mind this isn't official, it's just made by private users. So there are a ton of compatible games that aren't on that list, such as the PSP ones I mentioned before. But it'll at least let you know what games you can't play.

£36.74 for me...still hot...

Might be worth getting this seeing as TxK for Vita is supported, question does the image display in its original resolution or does it take at hit ?

£38.70 now

Seems it's now £36.76 after Discount

still too expensive

psm2201

Will get one of these when it hit £20-25 ish



You can have my unopened brand new one for £25! (_;)

Do you have to pay to play all the ps1 and ps2 games or are they free once you have the pstv ?

@ben1979 does that include postage and the free game codes that ive seen it come with recently ?

I'm selling mine for £30 if anyone wants it

Thanks for confirming that part works well. I just want something to dive into with the tiny nuggets of free time I have so might get it with ps+

Not sure I've ever seen that on a retailers site before. Seems best to avoid.
