PlayStation TV set for October launch

Sony’s PlayStation TV will make its debut in PAL territories on November 14, and on October 14 in North America.

The announcement came at the Gamescom conference in Cologne.

PlayStation TV is an entertainment system that extends the capabilities of PlayStation 4 allowing players to stream their PS4 games to any TV in their house. Retail price is set at €99 and $99 in the US.

The PS TV is able to stream games to any TV set in the home, but will also be capable to stream internet video, which could position the device as a competitor to devices such as Apple TV, Roku and Google Chromecast.

Released in Japan and Asian last November as PlayStation Vita TV, the system has since continuously evolved through software updates and content enhancements. Adopting the same chip sets and system software as the PlayStation Vita, PS TV has a 6.5cm × 10.5cm ultra slim size.

Sony also announced that its PlayStation 4 games console has now sold over 10 million units worldwide. PlayStation Now, Sony’s streaming game service coming to PlayStation devices and select televisions, is coming to Europe in 2015. It will first run as a beta in the UK. A beta for PlayStation Now is currently available in the US and Canada on PlayStation 4.

Released in Japan and Asian last November as PlayStation Vita TV, the system has since continuously evolved through software updates and content enhancements. Adopting the same chip sets and system software as the PlayStation Vita, PS TV has a 6.5cm × 10.5cm ultra slim size – the smallest of any PlayStation platform that connects to a TV.

In response to the demands from users in Europe and the PAL region, SCEE will introduce the system under a new name and colour, and will deliver entertainment experiences only possible on PS TV.

The main features of the PS TV system are as follows:

  • PlayStation 4 remote play: As with PS Vita, PS TV supports PS4 remote play and Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 4). This will allow PS4 owners in the living room to continue playing a game on a PS TV system in their bedroom. You can also enjoy most of your PS4 games on PS TV as if you were playing it on your PS4 system*.
  • PlayStation Now: Once PlayStation Now is rolled out across the PAL region, PS TV users will be able to comfortably enjoy PlayStation 3 games via streaming.
  • A vast line-up of software titles: PS TV offers a huge library of PS Vita*, PSP and classic PS One titles. You’ll be able to enjoy all of these titles using a DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 4 controller.
