First Look: PlayStation TV is the smallest console at E3

1:43 /

Sony's PlayStation TV console lets you stream PS4 games, play Vita games, and access PlayStation Now.

[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Scott Stein here at E3 2014, and this is smallest of the consoles announced at this show. The PlayStation TV. Now, this actually existed before as the Vita TV, but it's been redesigned internally in terms of what it can do. This is a PlayStation Now vehicle, it's a micro console that will be debuting for $99 this fall and it is the size of a deck of playing cards. What it does, this is like like a PS4 accessory. It connects in your home for remote play to stream PlayStation four games to it, and it connects with dual shock, there are dual shock four controllers. Two at a time but it also is a full vita micro console so you can put Vita Memory cards in here or download PlayStation Vita games or anything else from the PSN store that works on vita and play it on the PlayStation TV and the third thing it can do is it's a bridge to the PlayStation Now streaming gaming service which is not here yet but it's gonna enable streaming of PlayStation three games. Another cloud source streaming game and that's gonna be a way that you can get on board for $99 and not have to buy a PlayStation four or get a Sony branded television, which is the other way that you can get PlayStation Now. Two player game, streaming game, locally streaming PS4 and the Vita. And you also are able to get a bundle for $139, which is gonna come with a Dual Shock three controller, eight gig memory card, and a download code for the Lego movie video game on Vita. So, competition with the Amazon Fire TV, maybe an Apple TV, Sony's in the business is not just for big consoles, and portable, but the micro-console market too. I'm Scott signed here with a little look at the Playstation TV at E3 2014.
