Read more stories about on Siliconera.

  • Abysswalker90

    Didn’t even know the PSV had that many games.

  • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

    Hey Siliconera – nice tease with the Persona title there. It made me click. It led me to make this comment. If you’re looking for more clicks and traffic then congrats. Pls bring us more next numbered Persona info.

    • DudeOnly

      Plot twist Siliconera is developing persona with Spencer as a director -_-

      • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

        Obviously with Lumines replacing Meguro.

    • Cazar

      Headlines are there for a reason. For you to read them.

    • RisukuAozora

      Posts like these… geez… sure are doing the fanbase a favor painting it as an impatient whiny one.
      Don’t get me wrong, I love Persona too, but oh dear god, I can at least wait and not bitch at both Atlus and news sites for not giving us Persona 5 news. It’ll come. And when it will be awesome.

  • Seraph

    I see Tsukihime there. I’m hyped now.

    • NBXX

      As far as i know thats the japanese list of compatible games .

    • Cazar

      That’s a typo or a mistranslation. The actual title is Getsuei Gakuen -kou-. Not related to Tsukihime at all, although it is a VN.

      • Seraph

        Oh man… Guess I gotta wait longer then.

  • Dagobert


    • Steven Higgins

      Meh, I was excited at first, then I saw that it cant play UMDs and was like “Yeah, I don’t need this”

      • JMaster3000

        Get a PSP Grandpa :P

        • Steven Higgins

          1. I’m only 25
          2. I have a PSP, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to play some of the game for it that aren’t available for download on my T.V.

          • Monterossa

            then re-buy PSP games from PSN store.

          • Steven Higgins

            Not all PSP games can be bought on the PSN store.
            In fact, some of my favorite PSP games are not available for download.

          • Hector Velar

            he means a psp 2000 or 3000 that allows you to play on tv. either way you can download psp iso’s or buy games from the network

          • Steven Higgins

            I have a 3,000 I just don’t have the cable I need. It would not have been all that difficult for them to build a USD drive into this thing.

          • Even if you did, it doesn’t make the games fill the screen properly with the cable since the cable was only intended for movies. I can’t even zoom it properly on my TV to fill the screen and when you zoom it using the zoom feature it gets blurry and head ache inducing.

          • G.

            UMD is an outdated and expensive format that the rest of the world abandoned long ago. Only some devs in Japan are clinging to it.

            Adding UMD to the Vita or Vita TV would have been an unnecessary expense that no company would have supported, furthering the detriment to the Vita.

            Pick up a $10 cable for your PSP and you’re done. There you have your PSP games on your TV.

      • LaserVision

        Aren’t there a bunch of good VITA games like Gravity Rush that require touch? 11 downvotes? Wow people sure are spiteful.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist


  • Monterossa

    Is it a standalone device or I need to connect a Vita to play?

    • LustEnvy

      It’s a Vita that needs an external screen. You do not need a Vita. The main draw is that it will use Dualshock controllers (far superior to the Vita controls), and allow you to play on any big screen. That’s PS4 (anywhere with wifi), PSV, PSP, PSOne games from anywhere with a TV with no need to lug any system around.

  • NBXX

    That is really cool, on sunday i got the platinum in persona 4 golden, and i was just thonking on buying the original persona 4 for my collection, but with psv tv i would feel like im playing the oeiginal version but in wide screen, and i dont have to open the original ps2 one :3

  • Era Angelus

    Bummer Disgaea 3 isn’t compatible. That’s one title I would love to use for it.

    • I’m honestly a little sad. The touch mechanics in that are pretty purely aesthetic…

  • TheDarkEmpress

    No support for the game I’d wanna play the most on my TV :(…..(Gravity Rush) Still cool, though :

    • X_Bacon

      I’d imagine they’re having some trouble figuring out how to make it work on a controller…

      • CycloneFox

        It could run on a DS4, I think. The aiming-function is just optional and
        can also be done with the right stick and it shouldn’t be too hard to patch menus and comic scenes to be controllable with buttons.

        But it would be sad, if you have to map the dodge function to some button, It would be great if they enable you to use the DS4s touchpad for dodging.

      • Razzlero

        The funny thing is It was actually originally going to be a ps3 game. I’m guessing they will patch it sooner or later with alternate controls to work with dual shock 3, especially seeing as it’s made by sony themselves.

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    An excellent lineup, and for the announced price it’s easily worth buying it! I hope if the console becomes succesful they will patch older games like Gravity Rush, and Disgaea 3 to make them compatible with PS Vita TV.

  • safeto20scroll

    97.. 98.. 99… 100….. 101!
    Wow they really did manage to gather up 100 games for the Vita TV. Impressive, that’s a really good start I’d say. Maybe now my friends can finally get a Vita, or at least play the games with me xD

    Hurry with that release date for the rest of the world Sony!

  • dboyz

    i hope there’ll be no region lock

  • friendly neighborhood_dude

    I was going to buy persona 4 for ps2 but since they made this new vita it will even be better then playing vanilla persona 4, Also how dragons crown will compere to the ps3 version?

  • Aoshi00

    Awesome I still haven’t finished muramasa, time traveler, and special report division, would be nice to play on the big screen:). At first I thought this was an add on to the vita.. Of course perfect for persona 4 golden too :)

  • Cazar

    Hopefully they’ll find a way to make use of the DualShock 4’s touch pad for the currently incompatible touch screen games once support for that controller gets patched in.

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    Neptune and Ys IV will work? Sold.

    • Stranger On The Road

      Too late, according to the internet Amazon Japan is already sold out of these units!

  • X_Bacon

    Muramasa, P4G, Dragon’s Crown and all these on a big screen? You know, if I didn’t have a Vita already I’d be pretty sold on this.

    • Herok♞

      The irony in that statement is you can already play all those games you mentioned by name on a tv without a Vita.

      • X_Bacon

        Yes but I’d need, like, three different consoles to do that, and two of these games are arguably better than their other versions (well, P4G is definitely better)…

        • Herok♞

          Golden is better and Muramasa has a better translation, the only difference is the the translation, since dlc isn’t a factor(not sure if they are bringing it over). Yes you would need 3 different home consoles to do that but you can get the PS2 and P4 or the Wii and Muramasa for less than the cost of the Vita tv and if you don’t already have a PS3, the Vita tv + the controller will end up being almost as expensive as a PS3, a Normal Vita or the PS2/Wii together (if you can find a good deal). Basically if you don’t have anything else already just go for the normal Vita if you really want all those things on one machine.

          • mrEkli

            Muramasa Rebirth has customizable controls and Jump on a button rather than up on Dpad/Stick. That’s major enough for many players. Also rendering at Vita’s 544 instead of 480p of the Wii… It may look better on Vita TV.

          • Herok♞

            Still its not updated content or gameplay, I plan on getting the vita version of the game but only because I want it on the go.

          • mrEkli

            It was supposed to get DLC chapters and story but I have no idea what happened with that.

          • Solomon_Kano

            That redone translation as well. If you’ve never played it, there really isn’t much reason to pick the inferior translation.

          • X_Bacon

            Oh yeah, I really loved the dedicated jump and evade buttons!

          • Solomon_Kano

            > and if you don’t already have a PS3, the Vita tv + the controller will end up being almost as expensive as a PS3


            That’s not accurate. At all. The Vita TV w/ controller + 8 GB bundle is like $150…


            That’s cheaper than a Vita before a memory card (which you’ll need to buy at some point).

            You’re not finding a PS3 at that price either, unless you get one used.

          • Herok♞

            At current time the cheapest version of the PS3 is $200 new for a 12 GB a $50 dollar differenece is why I say almost as expensive as a PS3:

          • Solomon_Kano

            $50 is enough to buy a game. Several games, depending on which you get, since there aren’t any Vita games still retailing for $50 atm and the most expensive PSP game on PSN is $30.

            That’s a pretty nice difference, I’d say.

          • Herok♞

            True but the $50 also is the difference between having a basically crippled system which doesn’t have everything the real thing does, getting the real thing itself or getting an alternative with a larger library.

          • Solomon_Kano

            The “real thing” has been around, so if they picked this over that, obviously the $50 increase wasn’t worth it to them. Consider that the “real thing” also can’t play games on your TV, which is the main draw here, or else they’d have just dropped the Vita to $100 and not made this, no?

            The “alternative with a larger library” also assumes that one may not own a PS3 already, which may not be the case.

    • Don’t forget GOD EATER 2

  • Good enough for me. I could see myself importing this

    • Aristides

      Me too lol

  • Nitraion

    P4G,Soul sacrifice and god eater 2 nuff said
    sad there is no tales title..

    • veruses

      Odd. I don’t remember Innocence R having any forced touch screen feature. Not sure about ToH R.

      • no one

        ToHR really only uses the touchscreen in one way:

        Sometimes blue markers will temporarily appear on an enemy when it is being attacked, and then if you use L+O, L+X, or certain Artes (when the Attach Break skill is equipped) the enemy will be put in chase status.

        During a chase, there’s the chance that one of your ally’s icons will blink a few times, and if you tap on it, then you’ll perform a cross chase attack with them.

        Cross chase attacks are just one aspect that makes ToHR’s battle system so much fun to play (I personally love guard countering), but omitting them would be a bummer.

  • Stranger On The Road

    Relatively on topic; wondering about these 2 questions:

    1- this device support downloadable games, and it connects to the PS4/3. So it is safe to assume that it will consume a device activation, but which? We can only activate 2 consoles per account and 2 handhelds (down from 5). The PS Vita have shown that the unit number count would be across the generations. So those who have a PSP and Vita are already at the limit; and many will keep the PS3 after getting the PS4… so how will the device activation be addressed?

    2- would we be able to remote play using ad-hoc or local network instead of requiring a PSN/SEN connection? (really important to me). The linking between the devices might require PSN/SEN but future connections shouldn’t require that.

    • Solomon_Kano

      They’ve yet to clarify on the topic of your second question, but I can offer a bit of speculation on the first. I mean, for whatever that’s worth haha.

      I would wager that it’ll take up one of your handheld activation spots since, for all intents and purposes, it’s still a Vita.

      It’s entirely possible that they could rejig the number of possible activated devices again once this hits, since one would hope they’d have taken that into consideration.

  • so what, do you need the vita for this, or just the game disks?

    • GameWinner

      Just the game cards.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        And the memory cards

    • CycloneFox

      Obviously Sony doesn’t do the best job in marketing the VitaTV when people ask something like this. They have to make it more clear, that the VitaTV is a complete console of its own, which just brings the lineup of PSOne, PSP and PSVita with it already. And not an addon for the Vita or something. A whole console for 99€. Like the Ouya but with tripple-AAA games, a good controller, multimedia-functionallity like a setup-box and all.

  • I would get one as a companion model thanks to its price. I wouldn’t get this as your only Vita because Gravity Rush is practically the mascot franchise of the handheld.

  • Mental

    When PS4 releases, they could add an update that allows for Dualshock 4 compatibility for touch screen games.

    Also, seeing the amount of Japanese titles also makes me question whether or not PSVTV is region free.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    IM getting one for sure i hope freedomwars work whenever that come out

    • Curan_Altea

      Freedom Wars will open with a “Touch the screen” screen. No buttons will start the game, only touch.

      • TheExile285


        He’s joking but that is kind of how Soul Sacrifice starts and that game is compatible.

      • Isaac Newton

        And there you have Humanity has been completely destroyed. LOL

  • Herok♞

    if I didn’t have a Vita already, I still wouldn’t consider this the biggest games, Uncharted:GA, GR and Tearaway will all be unplayable and it seems whats left is games you can get on other systems in some form, like Muramasa just play the wii version, the Vita version’s draw was that it is portable since the DLC didn’t come bundled with the game, Blazblue and Dragon’s Crown are both are on PS3 already, even Persona you can just get the already great PS2 version. I see this a nice measure but I don’t think its a good replacement for the Vita, maybe its a good companion but nothing more or less.

    • Aristides

      At such a cheap price I’m getting it as a companion, I think the concept of having a console and a portable that can interchange software is truly amazing (like the PC engine/T16!) I’d still be playing on the regular hadheld, but getting that combined catalog of JRPGs on the big screen is truly a +.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Except none of them are available for it.

    • TheExile285

      It’s not supposed to be a replacement. It’s meant for those people who want to play certain Vita games but don’t want to buy a Vita or play them on a smaller screen.

      Like Shawn

      • Herok♞

        Shawn’s comment is right there, you didn’t need to link to it, but so far it seems the only games that are still playable are ports, for all we know Freedom Wars won’t work because it might use some functionality the TV isn’t capable of doing.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Nevermind the redone translation and customizable controls. Both are things that folks who played the original Muramasa said they wanted the updated version for.

      As Exile said, it’s not intended to be a replacement for the Vita. Who replaces a system with a version that can’t play all of its existing games? No, the Vita TV is supposed to be an entry-level device for people who may want some portable games, but not the portables themselves.

      Suggesting that people who want Persona should get a PS2 instead is kinda silly. If they wanted a PS2, surely they’d have gotten one by now, no? Nevermind that the Vita TV has more features than a PS2 and will see new games over time, which is something a PS2 won’t, seeing as it’s been discontinued.

      I guess I should cancel my plans for a Wii U, since I can get Wind Waker on Gamecube, right? I mean, a Gamecube’s cheaper and I hear the game is already good, so I should buy the older system and exclude myself from any future Wii U titles that may catch my eye because I don’t need one to play WW.

      Really, dude?

      • Herok♞

        The thing of the matter is cost if want to play Persona and only Persona and nothing else even catches your eye for the time being it makes no sense to purchase a Vita tv, if thats the sole intent. You say below that $50 dollars makes a difference that $50 can be used to buy a PS2 and Persona 4.If your sole reason to buy the Wiiu is just to play Wind Waker that isn’t cost effective, when there is cheaper alternative available for a fraction of the price, if you are buying the Wii U for the games in the future thats reason enough to buy one and get the game you missed out on before.

        Or are you trying to telling me it makes sense to spend $100+ on one game alone? Yes Vita tv will have more functions and can play more games but if those more games and other functions aren’t your reason for buying it then it makes no sense to shell out the extra money, when you can accomplish your goal at a cheaper price. I am not suggesting anyone should just go PS2 unless they only want to play the one game alone. Yes the new version of Muramasa has the new translation and customizable controls, those two things aren’t something to go out and buy a new system for in my opinion.

        Really this whole Vita tv thing is all a matter of where you already stand and what you already have, and what your intentions are for it. If you already have a PS2 or even if you don’t and you just want to play play persona 4 I recommend the PS2 over the Vita tv since its cheaper. If you don’t already have a PS2 and you want to play Persona 4 and more stuff later but don’t want a handheld, Vita TV is perfect for you. Basically you can rundown the scenario 1000 different ways and get different results. So I really don’t see why you responded unless you just wanted clarification.

        • Solomon_Kano

          > Or are you trying to telling me it makes sense to spend $100+ on one game alone?

          Anyone buying an entire device solely for a single title has the same ability to asses cost that someone buying it for multiple games does. It doesn’t matter what you or I think makes sense. If someone just REALLY wants those P4G improvements, they’re free to spend that money. It’s their prerogative. That it doesn’t make sense to you, doesn’t change that.

          You brought up cost effectiveness, but anybody considering a Vita TV has the ability to look at what costs what and decide which is worth it to them — which is ultimately all that matters: what is it worth to the individual?

          If you don’t understand why I responded, then you likely didn’t read the entirety of my response. In which case, this is what each paragraph was about:

          – There was more to Muramasa than just being portable, and these are things the original Wii gamers said they looked forward to

          – The misconception of the device as a “replacement,” when it’s not being advertised as such

          – Pointing out that games being available on other platforms doesn’t make one a less viable choice

          • Herok♞

            I mentioned Muramasa, and said how a new translation isn’t worth the cost of a whole new system but thats my opinion,

            In the parent comment for this chain of replies I already said it might be a good companion for Vita nothing more or less, and that I don’t think it would be a good replacement for a Vita

            The one I have nothing to say on the matter.

            I did read the whole response but I didn’t repeat what I had said already.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Then you understand why I responded.

          • Gina Kerry

            I think you made a mis-statement claiming that this is MORE than a Vita could ever be. View my other comment please and hopefully your eyes will be opened to the truth that Sony is bending you over and kicking you in the groin and laughing at you.
            You state that this “console” will have new and more content released for it than the Vita…really? Forgive the Japanese for buying into whatever Sony produces as blind nationalism for a moment and… Let’s take a handheld console that is barely selling for which games are merely trickling out (not including the Japan indie titles whose lack of quality offends most players). It has like 10 blockbuster titles after 5 years? It’s a dead and dying platform from day one. The absolute only reason I bought one was because I got it super cheap and I can now download free games from PSPlus. This might actually produce a slight uptick in sales for the device just like the chickenhen hack for PSP managed to sell millions more units of hardware because there was FREE (albeit stolen) content. It’s just fact.
            But would I actually Pay for content for this Vita device…No, probly not. That’s why $ony put the extra slap on you to buy proprietary memory cards just to make it play games. If it had a TV output then I might pay a little for a couple of used games that I could play on the TV, but even that is not an option with Vita. So enter “Vita TV”…a non-event. Vita TV will be sold only to a niche SUBSET of the current Vita users who drank the Sony kool-aid. They would not even be able to sell enough of these to justify the delivery cost to retailers. They certainly didn’t expect it to be worth the development cost to deliver a polished product. I would estimate far less than 100k units can sell. Especially when reviewers and less geeky end users get hold of it and slam it for 65% compatibility with the platform it is supposed to emulate.
            Don’t get me wrong I have 3 PS3s, 2 PSPs, a PS4 and now a Vita. So i know Sony CAN do better…But I won’t have a Vita TV unless someone gives it to me…even then, it might not be worth the hassle.

  • Kayseur

    11 out of my 20 Vita games are compatible, that’s not tooo bad, but I wonder why they didn’t make Photokano available. Sure it uses the gyroscopic function, but it’s not forced (albeit better to use). And a Project Diva f (and F 2nd) patch that would allow us to use the joystick like the PS3 version instead of raping the touchscreen would be great.

    Still, as much as I’d love to play Senran Kagura on my TV, I doubt I’ll spend 100€ in a device I wouldn’t use much.

  • CirnoLakes

    Tales of Innocence/Hearts? Need Tales of Innocence/Hearts!

    I wore my neck out not too long ago trying to play that on my Vita. Would love to have that on the TV.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Pretty much every game I want to play is for this, AND its not region locked? Importing harder than I can manage!

  • mace

    “However, games like Gravity Rush andWipeout 2048, DJ Max Technika Tune, and even Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention are not compatible since they use the touch screen.”

    Umm all Senran Kagura uses is the touch screen.

  • Odin

    You know the kind of ironies with Sony that I’ve noticed? Every device they release means each one is essentially competing for that “console experience” (and in essence, themselves), and they all do it, so it makes many of them redundant.

    PS3, PS Vita, PS4, PS Vita TV. What happened to having a single device?

    A lot of those games have a PS3 equivalent as well.

  • Nyoron

    Don’t forget that there are still ton of PSP and PSOne titles… There could lies some classics that you haven’t played yet buried among thousands of titles :p

  • artemisthemp

    Compatible ad launch?
    Sound like PS Vita TV may not play all PS Vita titles.

    • Solomon_Kano

      They said up front that not all titles will be compatible since the DS3 can’t emulate all of the Vita’s control options:

      • Kevadu

        He’s referencing an earlier Siliconera story which clearly stated that the Vita TV would play all Vita games and was never corrected. Because Siliconera never corrects any of their mistakes, they just charge on while pretending they didn’t happen…

        • Solomon_Kano

          Which is why I’m offering the correct info now.

          I don’t write articles, so I can’t fix that, but I can (and do) offer corrections in the comments where possible.

        • Which article are you talking about? Something to keep in mind is that sometimes it’s impossible to keep updating old articles with new info. If we were going to do that, we’d spend more time updating older posts instead of writing newer ones to reflect the newly-announced information.

  • J_Joestar

    I could connect this online and play Dragon’s crown with people on PS3 right?
    I’d really consider getting this just for that.

    • Herok♞

      its still a vita so no.

  • Brimfyre

    Damn Japan has a lot more interesting Vita games, than over here in the states.

  • Armane

    Wipeout really has no reason to be incompatible. The only issue is the touchscreen menus after all. If only Studio Liverpool were still around.

  • Speedo Redempteur

    i don’t understand how it can work for sengan kagura shinobi versus and not for gravity rush… both use the touchscreen

  • Spirit Macardi

    … And the lack of Disgaea 3 suddenly kills some of the enthisiasm I had for this.

    You can play the PS3 version without a touch screen, so why the hell do you need to use it for the handheld version?

    • TheExile285

      They designed so trophies for the touch screen and backtouch. O think it’s only like 3 trophies so they should make it compatible IMO

  • Lazulis

    I wonder if the list will get bigger when the DS4 support is put in

  • Spider-Man

    Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is playable, excellent. Spider-Man always gets what he wants.

  • Hector Velar

    glad I waited :D murasama rebirth get in my big screen tv!

  • Warboss Aohd

    Total Biscuit said ta Market it az ‘Persona 4 Golden TV’

  • fireemblembeast

    So is there a list for the other consoles? Or do they all work?

    • Solomon_Kano

      Any PSP and PS1 games that currently work on the Vita should work on Vita TV, since they have no touch or other elements to hold them up.

      • fireemblembeast

        Oh, thanks. :)

        • Solomon_Kano

          No prob.


    Persona 4 Golden new game+ here I come! Happy to see Muramasa Rebirth on the list as well. Hopefully Gravity Rush gets included in the future.

  • So is Playstation plus going to be on Vita TV?

    • Solomon_Kano


  • tubers

    I hope they patch in DS3/4 support for the actual PSV systems.

    More options, more “power”.

    Hope we don’t have to reach the “Go” (4th hardware rev.) before that happens.

  • redhood56

    Why isn’t virtue’s last reward compatible? It has no forced touchscreen controls at all. I would love to replay it a bigger screen

  • WyattEpp

    There’s a certain irony to the part where Disgaea 3, a PS3 game with no touch functionality, won’t run on the version of the Vita that has no touch functionality.

  • Mir Teiwaz

    This may seem silly, but why not allow me to use my Vita as a controller for the Vita TV? This would allow you to use a touch screen/pad as necessary.

    Or just give us a way to hook up the Vita to the TV without the Vita TV. I’d take either option.

  • PersonaBull

    The more I think about it the more the Vita TV is actually growing on me as a companion system. I’ll already have the controllers and I’ll already have the TV and I’ll already have the games for my Vita. This actually could make use of the second download per game (2 systems per purchase and all) so I could play whatever with a friend/family member on the spot, they could watch, I could watch. It’s portable as well, so I could just as easily bring this set as I could a Vita anyplace. Idk it’s pretty neat for whoever would want it. It’s obviously not a replacement for the Vita at all, but it definitely grants better availability to a certain extent considering plenty of people already have a PS3/TV that have/would want a Vita by now, so a DS4 controller would be the only other thing you’d have to get to possibly bring full use out of the Vita TV. Neat idea~

  • Wow. I will totally be buying this purely due to this revelation that I can play P4G on my big screen TV.

  • BloodyNights

    And then Magically Sony creates a Tablet expansion, just like the Wii U pad, for PSVita TV, and Touch Screen support for PS4….lol

  • Tom_Phoenix

    This post kind of makes me wonder, though….I understand why stuff like “HD remasters” should look just fine if played on a TV; afterall, they are HD to begin with and are just downsized for the Vita’s screen.

    But what about games that weren’t HD in their original form? Persona 4 Golden, for example, is (visually speaking) a straight up port of the PS2 version; they didn’t even adapt the game to the Vita’s resolution. So what happens when the game is played on Vita TV? Is the game simply stretched out to an HD resolution?

    • Did… Did you even play the same game? Cause P4Golden is most DEFINITELY adapted to the Vita’s resolution, and is graphically superior. There’s a lot more details, there’s more vibrancy, it isn’t as “foggy” in the town and you can actually see more of the environment around you.

      I dunno what you’ve seen, but P4Golden is a very big upgrade, even visually. – Heck, here’s a comparison.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        After doing some research, I did realise I was somewhat mistaken. They did bump up the resolution. However, aside from the UI and the Compendium/Analysis pictures, most of the game isn’t rendered in Vita’s native resolution.

        More importantly, the game is far from HD. So my question still remains: what exactly are they going to do about games that weren’t downsized from HD to begin with?

        • I think the game will still play just fine, just there might be some artifacting or loss in graphical quality. A lot of it depends on the size of one’s own TV most likely, too.

          I just imagine it won’t be anything that’s as bad as connecting a PSP to an HDTV.

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    It has the sort of titles Ouya always wanted but never really had. At the same price point too.

  • You know, with Disgaea 3 not being compatible, I hope that NIS gets on the ball and makes sure that Disgaea 4 Return is at least compatible… I’m actually sorta disappointed. Disgaea 3’s touch stuff was really aesthetic/trophy hunting. Why really limit themselves?

    Especially since Totori/Meruru also have aesthetic backpanel features, too…

  • I waited so long for a Sony’s equivalent to Nintendo’s GBplayer for PSP and PS Vita’s games.
    And is not even that expansive compared to the original Vita.

  • katamari damacy

    a vita for $99? just bring your own screen. Cheaper than a PS3, and if what Sony says about the Vita specs is correct, as powerful as a PS3. wouldn’t be out of the question that they have streaming or downloadable PS3 ‘classics’ eventually as well

  • Gina Kerry

    Development cycle for Vita TV…”Hey Uri! Get those twins Suki Yu and Suki Mi over there in the dark corner cubicle and give them a Vita IC board, this rf modulator, surplus DS2 controller and get that old TV from Mr. Oki’s office. See if they can get some kind of output to work….And please tell them to stop ******* off every software engineer that wanders by!..that’s not really why they were hired. “
