PlayStation Vita TV - Page 3

Otherwise I think they should release it in the West alongside the PS4 launch (or as soon as possible) in order to maximally capitalize on the launch period excitement while STRONGLY marketing it as an PS4 Extender.

People were complaining about a $499/$599 PS3 back in 2006, before the economy crash. A $400 PS4, with $50 PS+ subscription required for online play, let's say one game at $60, and a $100 Vita TV. That's $610 with tax on top, during a period when consumers are also budgeting for xmas gifts. I'd be very surprised to see the Vita TV selling in decent numbers if launched in November.

I think you might be underestimating the motivation of a father to get their kid away from the primary flat panel...or better yet still be able to access your games when wifey is watching The Celebrity Apprentice. tongue.gif

Oh believe me, I'm in that boat. I'm just not overestimating how many people are prepared to spend in the $600 range to get the ps4/vita tv package during the christmas holidays.

So big news, Vita TV has a stand!?!



Heh, but the demo did look pretty good. No lag and seamless synching. Also swear I saw a DS4 synced to it, but it's been a long day so maybe not.

It's supposed to be able to be synced with a Dual Shock 4 or a SixAxis or DS3 from the PS3. So you probably did see it. That would be one vertical stand I'd actually take advantage of. Discs spinning at high RPM's always discouraged me from using it on consoles with optical drives.

Another demo station showcased how the PS Vita TV could stream PS4 games using Remote Play, although the hardware didn't exactly shine during that session. It works, which is perhaps miraculous in itself; and with surprisingly little latency, too — I was able to play through a brief snippet of Knack without taking too many hits due to lag. Visually, though, there's some serious degradation experienced while streaming; resolution takes a nosedive and textures get pretty muddy.

Boooo.

Not really.

But the other question is what setup he was playing on. If he was playing right in front of one of those 60-80 inch floor TV's showing off games and features, well sure it's going to look like crap.

I don't think the Vita is really supposed to be a centerpiece if the home theater / living room TV. What I want to know is if it's serviceable on a bedroom 37". Youtube or Netflix HD quality is more than enough if they can hit it.

Not really surprised, just confirming what I'd feared.

I wonder what the bottleneck is...the encoder on the PS4, the decoder on the Vita, or simply not choosing a high enough bitrate.

It's certainly something that will improve over time, I just wish they were starting from a better place.

Thankfully the functions that interest me appear to be fine. Streaming PS4 content to another tv was of no interest to me.

I know it's not region locked, but i wonder if the streaming services are or regionalized.

It be nice if it runs off of PSN sign in region.

It would be nice if you could use the PS3 for PS4 remote play in another room.

Seriously. The Vita can do it but a PS3 can't?

I know, but it's not going to happen as long as the PS3 has 512MB of split RAM.
