Did you like what you saw when Sony announced the PS Vita TV earlier this week? Checking in at below $100 USD, it’s an affordable console that plays PS Vita, PSP and PSOne games. Hook it up to your TV and connect a DualShock controller to enjoy.
If you did, in fact, like the idea, you might want to check your anticipation. Sony has indicated that they currently have no plans to release the PS Vita TV in any region beyond Asia; that includes Japan, South Korea and China.
Here’s Sony Computer Entertainment President Andrew House speaking with Nikkei:
SCE will release the PS Vita TV in Japan Nov 14, 2013, and in other countries after that. The reason why it will be launched in Japan earlier than in other countries is that there is no leading company in Japan’s video streaming market. The company is planning to sell the PS Vita TV in China, South Korea, etc, but not in the US and European market at this point.
While it’s certainly understandable that Sony wants to test the market waters for the PS Vita TV in Japan before bringing it to other countries, the fact of the matter is that this small, affordable console market is wide open for strong competition. In its proposed state, the PS Vita TV would be an immediate and harsh opponent for stuff like the Ouya.
What do you think? Should Sony bring the PS Vita TV west?
