That PlayStation Vita TV sure is nifty, isn't it?
Unfortunately, Sony has no current plans to bring it to North America or Europe. That doesn't mean it won't ever happen (cross your fingers!), but SCEE president and group CEO Andrew House told Nikkei's Tech On blog that Vita TV will initially be introduced in Asian markets.
That's disappointing, but House did say that Gaikai, the cloud-based streaming service slated for the PlayStation 4, could "technically" be supported by Vita TV:
"Therefore, SCE is considering providing PS3 games to the PS Vita TV by using the service in the future."
If you didn't already know, Vita TV plays Vita game cartridges and hooks up to your TV. It can even beam the games remotely to other televisions in the home, and will work with various streaming video services. This device will let you play PSP, PS1, and Vita games directly on the big screen, which sure is appealing. It'll even work with the PS4's Remote Play feature, so it appears to have all the bases covered.
Well, all the bases in Japan, anyway.
