New commercial shows how PS Vita TV can save television

A Japanese television commercial for the PlayStation Vita TV micro-console shows multiple generations of a family interacting through television.

The commercial starts in 1964, with the introduction of a black-and-white TV to a Japanese home. It follows one child in particular as he grows up and starts a family, moving through the 80s and 90s and showing said family growing in turn. However, in the 2000s the family becomes increasingly disinterested in television with things like computers taking precedence.

That changes when the family gets a PS Vita TV, allowing them to play games like Final Fantasy 7 and watch anime like Puella Magi Madoka Magica right from their respective Vitas.

The PS Vita TV launched in Japan on Nov. 14. No Western release date has yet been announced.
