Does the new vita last longer because of the lcd?

Does anyone know what happens with Remote Play when I get a PS4?

I mean, if I already have a Vita working with my PS3 (Remote Play), can I have all three linked to the same PSN account and use remote play in both PS3 and PS4?

I hope that yes....but who knows...

Do you know if the Vita TV supports touchscreen monitors?

Frak the new Vita, lighter and thinner little bit and shittier screen vs the old one, the old Vita wins. If someone even thinks the new Vita is superior, they are delusional and weak. The old vita is heavier than the ps3 controller.

What the new Vita would need is to have better wifi connection, more range to it same for adhoc. The old Vita's wifi connection range is little bit crappier than PSP (2004) slims.

Vitatv has potential but again, a non-computer company trying to design OS is just terrible, Sony's OS has been terrible and continues to be terrible

New VITAtv interface is impossible.

It's a VITA. The LiveArea stays the same. It's not a separate software catalogue.

Maybe a touch monitor can support VITA gestures for the VITA tv...

Question: 
What exactly is Vita TV? Does it replace the Vita? Turning it into a console instead of a handheld?

With this new model coming out the price of the already more expensive original will only go up as it becomes rarer, so yeah, I think I'll pick up the new one.

Sony needs to put Demons Souls with some extra content for me to consider it.

Vita TV, following on from a long line of successful well supported Sony products. Such as.. Vita games, and playing online over 3G.

Will you guys do an Ask GameSpot on Killer Instinct for the Xbox1? I want to know what characters you guys think will be in the game and Maxwell don't hang out with Shaun too much. Otherwise you'll end up as a snooty vampire like him XD

@oldschoolvandal it's more like the vita linked to both the PS3 and PS4. according to sony, all PS4 games will support remote play.

And the Vita TV looks somekind of a rip off from the TV and WiiU. If I want to watch tv I use my monitor, or a tv, I can watch from my pc, or from my ps3, or I can even watch through my ps3 the pc video content.

@GentlemanProxy Exactly. It is a device that can play PSP and Vita games on a big TV. Its basically a very cheap home console that has a great game library.

@Peter Beadle 

6 hours. An hour longer than the original PS Vita's battery life.

@KelboDelta If there is then I'm hoping it'd be with the new VITA, and hopefully not a way of getting rid of excess older models.

@Pete5506 quite frankly the vita tv is the only type of vita I'd get

@Butt_Chunx The thumbnail is not misleading which means the voice didn't irritate you, you're just a jerk.

@maitkarro The main benefit of a Vita TV is its ability to play Vita and PSP games. And to stream PS4 content to another tv. This alone makes it a must buy for me.

@dietc @Butt_Chunx No one, Carolyn isn't in the video, Its Maxwell McGee and Shaun McInnis.

@maitkarro Yea and before there were no OS built into consoles and now there is, thus Sony is struggling these days

maitkarro

@UNCStriker88 @maitkarro M$ didn't make consoles at the start, sony made before them, therefor M$ has less experience at console making, therefor it's crappier at it. But M$ has made OS I don't even know how long, and well sony OS I don't even know what it is.

@Sohereiam Oh crap!, Maxwell McGee and Carolyn Petit are the same person!, he just puts a funny voice on he wants to be Carolyn!.
