Sony on Tuesday announced its PlayStation TV will launch in the U.S. on Oct. 14. The console, essentially a micro-console for streaming games, has already been made available in select markets, but the device will finally make its way to North America. With over ten million PlayStation 4 consoles sold to date, making the device more accessible to PS4 owners is a no-brainer.
The PlayStation TV essentially serves as a secondary console for PS4 games through Remote Play; users can also play regular PSOne titles, PlayStation Vita games and more. Additionally, PlayStation TV owners will also be able to take advantage of PlayStation Now, which is Sony’s subscription-based service for streaming games, much like Netflix is for movies. The little gadget will also act as a regular streamer for content like movies, TV shows and music.
You can pick up the PlayStation TV on Oct. 14 for $99, or you can also opt for a bundle for $139, which also includes a DualShock 3 controller, HDMI cable, 8GB memory card and a copy of Lego The Movie on PS Vita.
