Gamescom 2014: PlayStation TV Launches in October, Bringing PS4 Remote Play to Your TV
Play PS4 games on a separate TV in addition to those for PS Vita, PSP, and PS1 for $100.
Sony revealed the PAL date during its Gamescom press conference, while the North American date came shortly thereafter on Twitter. The company revealed buyers will receive three free digital games, but didn't specify which games these will be. We also don't know if North American buyers will be entitled to the same deal; we've followed up with Sony and will report back with anything we learn.
PlayStation TV is the former Vita TV, which launched in Japan last year. (You can see an unboxing video of one below.) The device can play "many" PlayStation Vita games in addition to digital PlayStation 1 and PlayStation Portable games. Through Remote Play, it can be used to stream PlayStation 4 games from one PS4 console in your home onto a separate television that the PlayStation TV is connected to. The device also provides access to certain entertainment content through the PlayStation Network, and will be getting support for the PlayStation Now streaming service.
Both the PS3's DualShock 3 and PS4's DualShock 4 can be used with the PlayStation TV, which will, as announced at E3, retail for $100 in the US and €99 in Europe. A bundle that includes a DualShock 3, an 8GB memory card, a USB cable, and a copy of The Lego Movie Videogame will also be available for $140.
