PlayStation TV System Bundle
Purchased This Last Night
I got this last night because I preordered it. It comes in a very small box about the size of a book without the bundle, with the bundle its the size of a standard bible. Upon plugging it in, it looks very nice and sleak. About the size of a credit card just a little thicker. The system is the same as the vita however, many things do not work. Many games do not work even though they state it would at launch. Netflix currently does not work as well either. Although I understand it uses the same operating system as the vita I was highly disappointed at the resolution. It reminds me of a bad computer screen with one of the crappiest video cards ever installed. I wish they would have atleast used high def when creating the screen. I tried to install new games on their however the memory card which shipped with the product was full after my lego game installed. So if getting this make sure you get a large memory card to combat that issue.
Overall Rating 7/10 if everything works.
Current State 5/10
Seems great so far.
I just got the Playstation TV bundle today and it seems like a really great product for the price. This product is great for me because I don't play hand-helds. Also, a lot of the Vita games I would play are supported by PS TV so I have more games to get now! With Tales of Hearts R coming next month it would've been a game that I normally missed out on because of it being on a hand-held; but thanks to Namco its now compatible with PS TV! Also, I missed so many JRPG'S on the PSP that are now available to me and my big screen TV thanks to PS TV. I just downloaded Persona 2 Innocent Sin a game I wanted to play for so long, but couldn't because it was on PSP. I'm playing it now on my big screen with my new PS TV and it's working just fine! So if anyone reads my review and your in the same boat as I was then this is a product for you. Lastly, PS TV is very easy to use, I had no problem what so ever setting it up.
Great mini console
I recently bought this for my little brother and he loves it. It is a neat console. I don't know why people are complaining about this PlayStation TV. I played it and the games looks great. Of course its not going to play as good as the ps4 but stop comparing it to a $400 dollar system. Overtime I believe Sony will improve this console so it may be equal or better than streaming devices such as Apple TV or Roku.
A device worthy of the Playstation name
The Playstation TV is an absolutely phenomenal console with an extensive library of games. At just $99, the value is extraordinary compared to other platforms on the market. Though the system is primarly designed for use with PS Vita gamecards, access to the Playstation Store and Playstation NOW expand the library offerings to include PSOne, PSP and PS3 games. Although the media features need to be improved (Netflix and Hulu do not yet work with the device, although there is Crackle), the console does not disappoint as a games device. I am having a blast with titles such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Kill Zone Mercenary and LEGO The Hobbit.
Greatest Value Purchase
Overall the system serves it's purpose but It's just valuable. Think about it 1 Dualshock 3 controller - $54.99, PS TV $79.99 = $134.98. Everything else that's included is just icing on the cake. I suggest buying this for all that's included in the package and i would hurry up because this bundle is not going to last. It was sold out in two of the stores that I went to in my area.
For what it is, it is great. If you really need another box to watch Netflix with, then you might want to wait. Otherwise, I can play a bunch of Final Fantasy games on this thing and there's not much more I can ask for.
Vita games on the big screen
The PlayStation TV is a great addition to any gamers household. You can play all the great Vita titles on the big screen, as well as Remote Play every PS4 game from across the house. I put the PS TV in my bedroom and now am able to play PS4 and Vita games from the comfort of my bed, while my actual Vita stays in its case charged up and my PS4 sits safely on the living room entertainment center.
Playstation TV Bla Bla Bla
I was so happy to see I could final play my VITA games on my big tv instead for the stupid hand held. Was expecting to be what the Gameboy player was to the Gamecube. NOT THE CASE. I'm a little P!SSED off. #1, half of the VITA GAMES wont even play on the thing. NOT SUPPORTED it says. # 2, Netflix and some other SIMPLE apps dont work also...... Whats up with that?
I would stay way from it untill SONY does some updates for it and make it work BETTER then out the box!
JUST MY 2 CENTS from the $140 I spent on the thing!.
I traded my oled vita for this simply because I really don't do portable gaming anymore..this is an outstanding value and after spending most of the day playing with this, I love it. I have netflix and youtube on my ps3 so no need for that for me, though I imagine that will be supported eventually. The cost of the controller, game, and mem card is 100 alone new so you are basically getting the pstv free. Awesome deal and awesome piece of hardware.
