As part of its pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference held today, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia has announced a new piece of hardware that will allow owners to play PSP, original PlayStation, and PS Vita games directly on their televisions. The system will also work with PlayStation 4's Remote Play feature.
Dubbed PlayStation Vita TV, the Apple TV-style device measures 6.5x10.5cm and connects to the television, with slots for players to insert their PS Vita game cards. The hardware will also beam games remotely to other televisions within the home, as well as work in conjunction with streaming video services such as Hulu.
The device will launch in Japan on November 14 for 9,480 yen (around $95) and will also be available in a bundle that includes a PS Vita TV, a DualShock 3 controller, and an 8GB Vita Memory Card. No worldwide release was confirmed. Check out the official trailer below (via GamesHQMedia).
