PlayStation TV arrives in Europe this Autumn for under £100

PlayStation Vita TV has lost the "Vita" part of its name, but Sony's tiny streaming device has finally been confirmed for a European release at €99 (likely the same in Sterling). Packing the same specs as a Vita but crammed into a sleek plastic case (small enough to fit in the palm of one hand), it's capable of streaming media content, streaming PS3 games via PlayStation Now and playing downloaded PSOne/PSP/Vita titles from the PlayStation Network.

PS4 owners can also use PlayStation TV's streaming functionality for multi-room remote play: i.e. running a game on a PS4 in one room, but playing it on a television elsewhere in the house.

You'll need to sync it with a DualShock 3 or DualShock 4, naturally.

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 Controller (DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 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*.
  • 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 line-up 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 DUALSHOCK 4 controller.

I'll need reassurance on a few things:
- PS4 streaming quality and input lag - needs to be good enough to support online gaming via remote play
- Vita compatibility - it's frankly woeful at the moment. None of Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Killzone Merc or Tearaway work as things stand
- Price - I might pay £70 for one but I'm not shelling out £100

I do want one, for Vita games. I must say though that this is supposed to be $99 US. That SHOULD translate to about £70, and I think that's what I'd pay. Meaning I'd wait for a price drop.

£70 yes, £99... I doubt it. I could have got it less than that by importing it 6 months ago.
