Sony Rolls Out PlayStation TV in North America

While Japanese users have had access to PlayStation TV since November of 2013, only recently has Sony announced a wider release for the microconsole. It’s essentially a non-portable version of Sony’s PlayStation Vita, but with a feature that some are saying constitutes a killer app.  It’s called Remote Play, and it will let you stream games (and other content, like Netflix) from your PlayStation 4 to another TV in your house.

Earlier versions of the PlayStation will also be supported through various channels by the PlayStation TV, which is designed as an add-on for people who already bought the PS4 but have more than one TV. It connects to your screen via HDMI cable and works with two DualShock 3 or 4 controllers. And, uh, it also plays Vita games, if that is of interest to you.

The Sony PlayStation TV isn’t scheduled to hit shelves until late 2014, but you can place your pre-order now from Amazon here, where it’s priced at just a little under $100.
