A Japanese television commercial released by Sony demonstrates how the PlayStation Vita TV, a micro-console that allows users play PlayStation Vita and PSP games on their television with a DualShock 3 controller, connects and operates with TVs and PS Vita.
As highlighted in the video above, PS Vita TV can serve as a Remote Play hub for PlayStation 4 and will also support video and music services, such as Hulu, Music Unlimited and Nico Nico. Eventually, PS Vita TV users will have access to 1,300 games and packages released for the PS Vita, PSP and the original PlayStation, such as Lumines, Rayman Origins, Gundam Breaker and Soul Sacrifice Delta.
Originally announced during Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia's Press Conference 2013, PS Vita TV will be released on Nov. 14 in Japan for 9,480 yen. A bundle version consisting of a DualShock 3 controller and an 8 GB memory card will be released in the region for 14,280 yen. To date, no plans for a western release have been announced, although it will launch to Asian markets in January 2014.
