Sony needs to patch a lot of games or the PS TV will suffer the same fate as its long lost older brother which SCEA doesn't care to look for anymore. lol!

just do sony a favor and get both :p

vita ps tv for the giggles

and the vita for the games which don't work on the vita ps tv which should be most games which needs the front/back touchscreen or even worse the cam like uncharted or tearaway.

I would take the PS TV if it came to my country.

Second last column says which games are compatible with Vita TV.

Tearaway playable on PS TV?

I dont think so. The PS TV only works with most Vita games, not all.

They would have to patch the game to make it work with just a controller and I doubt they will bother.

the DS4 touch pad works as if it was the touch screen function, example

look at top left on the DS4 picture...


100% lover "nothing else matter's" after that...


Proud psOne/2/3/p owner.  I survived Aplcalyps3 and all I got was this lousy Signature.

I will get the Vita TV if its compatible with Uncharted, Killzone, and Gravity Rush. I prefer playing on a TV and its cheaper.

it should get a patch for killzone iirc, but for the other 2 the chances of halo/last of us exclusive for the wiiu would be higher
