I'm not a fanboy, I like Nintendo, that's pretty much it. 

But tell me, why would Sony fans like this new device when they apparently can't play half of the Vita's library? No matter how much of a fan you are, there's no reason to buy one if you can't play those games. Also, most people complaints (including Sony fans) were the memory cards and those are still present. Why are they still happy about it now? 

I guess most people who said they liked it and only watched the video and didn't see the other news about it. 

Too many people focusing on "Vita" while ignoring the other digital content and the part of its name that is "TV".

Its a $100 device that is intended to allow you access to all of your Sony content/PS+ content/Gaikai content/PS4 content/PSV content.

Obviously parts of that content (PSV) is nto 100%, but its got a lot of other value for that $100 if you're a PS gaming and likely to buy a PS4.

I know I'd consider one if I were buying a PS4 alone. Gives me the capability to play away from main TV which is a huge plus in Wii U's offtv capabilities.



I'll be getting this.



e=mc^2

Gaming on: PS4 Pro, Switch, SNES Mini, Wii U, PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060)

to be honest: The 100$ price is not quite comparable to the Ouya because it doesn´t inlcude the stradivarius of controllers (they seriously had the nerve to call this hot mess the "stradivarious of contollers")...but even at 130$, Vita TV obliterates the Ouya from a game library point of view...I might buy one down the line !



so am i right in thinking that once sonys streaming service i launched ill be able to play ps4 games off this thing?



Around the Network

Old vita with OLED: $229 (yen equiv), comes with 32GB memory card, Hot Shots Gold, 3G/Wifi, Ending in October

October: Yen equiv $189, New Vita with LED, cheaper, lighter, smaller, more colors, internal 1GB storage, longer battery life, portable.

November, Under 100 dollars (yen equiv), Vita TV, Media hub with the ability to play PSP, PS1, and PSV games (subject to controller for touch screen games *at least to me*, non portable, stream music, movies, karaoke player

I dont see any of the three in conflict with each other so I don't understand the hate (well I actually do) its generating.  Somewho who is in the market for a Vita, a portable one, will not have the TV on their radar.  Someone looking for a Apple TV/Roku/Chromecast type device can pick one up with the added benefit of playing games on it.

Well we don't know if the compatibility of games will change after the PS4 launches in Japan (that's why they have a pack-in with a DS3 for this, the current compatibility list is with the DS3 in mind). The DS4 could provide the necessary inputs, even if it means using a less conventional way of doing so.

Of course I don't know for sure.

This thread is a prime example of Sony fans dominating the internet.

...

Or maybe people actually like the device...
I'm getting one and I already own a Vita. I've been wanting to buy an Apple TV/Roku for a while and this seems like a much smarter buy.

Interesting that the people who like it have Sony sigs or avatars. Maybe it's just a coincidence. 

But I'm sure you were just fine with the 2ds.

2 different things. The 2DS concept is to appeal to younger kids who parents don't want (or can't because is too expensive), to buy a normal 3DS, in paper, this a brilliant idea. As for the Vita.TV, I don't see their target. Gamers? Vita is a much much better choice. Kids? The Vita doesn't really appeal to kids. General consumer? Vita sales show that the general consumer isn't interested in the Vita, so no reason to buy one as of yet, and if you want to watch movies there are plenty of other devices (which they probably already own) that do the same.

Price isn't really that big of a selling point, because you can get a PS3 that's not that much more expensive, and gives you much more value. The only appeal I see from this is that if you exclusively wan to play remote play (without some Vita games), but then again, the people that want only remote play are a minority. 

So yeah, it's not about if I liked the 2DS ot didn't liked the Vita.TV, is just that I can't see what is their target.
