Since its unveiling in September 2013, PS Vita TV has become one of the most expected products.

PS Vita TV allows users to enjoy more than 600 software titles for PS Vita*1 and PlayStation®Plus membership service can be enjoyed on the system. SCE will deliver PlayStation® experience available on PS Vita TV through system software updates and by enriching the content, to existing PlayStation® fans, as well as those who have not experienced PlayStation® products. 

 

Main features of the PS Vita TV system are as follows:

 

  • Vast lineup of software titles

PS Vita TV offers a vast lineup of 600 software titles*1 from PS Vita games, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) games and PlayStation® games from PSOne classics, including  all-time favorites to the latest blockbuster titles like GOD EATER 2 (NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc.) and SOUL SACRIFICE DELTA (Sony Computer Entertainment). 

 

  • PlayStation®4 (PS4™) remote play

As with PS Vita, PS Vita TV will also support PS4™ remote play and Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK®4) through future system software updates*2. This will allow users to enjoy most of the PS4™ games on PS Vita TV as if they are playing it on the PS4™ system.

 

  • Fun and Unique features of PS Vita TV
  • PS Vita TV users can play games with PS Vita users via Ad Hoc mode. Those users who are not playing but in the same room can enjoy the televised game play that the PS Vita TV users are playing.
  • Up to 2 DUALSHOCK®3 controllers can be connected to PS Vita TV, allowing users to enjoy multiplayer games from PSOne classics titles.
  • Videos stored within Memory Card or those videos being played on the “Browser” of the PS Vita system*3 can easily be transferred to PS Vita TV to be viewed on the large TV screen. While being transferred, PS Vita can be used as a remote controller using the video player application.

Supported titles differ by country and regions.

*2 Details will be announced when ready.
