PlayStation TV Launches Next Month With Nearly 700 Games
PlayStation TV will launch on October 14 in North America and a month later in Europe, Sony has announced.
The service gives consumers access to games spanning across all major PlayStation platforms, including the PS One, PSP, and PS Vita. The PS One and PSP games will be available digitally only, while Vita titles can be played by both downloading or inserting the actual game card.
As for the PS4, subscribers to the service can utilize Remote Play to stream PS4 games onto a separate television that is connected to PlayStation TV. Once Sony brings PlayStation Now, consumers will also be able to stream PS3 titles. PlayStation Now just recently entered open beta on the PS3.
On release, the PlayStation TV will feature nearly 700 titles and the company has promised to “expand” this roster with other popular titles, including Minecraft.
The system will be available for purchase for the price of $99 / £84.99 / €99.99. In Europe, the standalone system will include a voucher to download Worms: Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra, and OlliOlli. In North America, a $139.99 bundle will include a DualShock 3 controller, 8 gigabyte memory card, and The LEGO Movie Videogame.
Additionally, Sony has announced another bundle that will be available for a limited time at Walmart. It will include the system itself, a DualShock 3 controller, 8 GB memory card, and a copy of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. This bundle will also sell for $140.
