The PlayStation TV, Sony’s microconsole that plays certain PlayStation Vita and PSP games directly on your TV, apart from also playing PSOne Classics, PlayStation Minis, and PlayStation 4 games via Remote Play, is finally going to be launching North American territories on October 14 2014, which means that some 700 odd games, spread over select PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Mini, and PlayStation One games, will be playable on this new hardware. Add to that the usefulness of the Remote Play function, which means it can also basically play every single game on your PS4 on a different TV in the house,, and you can see why it’s so useful.

Of course, it has one other use. Do you know what that is? Yeah, that’s right, you can finally play Persona 4 Golden on the TV. That’s amazing right there, and warrants a purchase all on its own!

PlayStation TV will be available in two variants- $99.99 for the standalone system, or $139.99 for the bundle that includes a Wireless Controller (DualShock 3), 8GB memory card, and The LEGO Movie Videogame. For a limited time, you can find an exclusive PS TV bundle at Walmart, which comes with everything in the PS TV bundle plus Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, also for $139.99.

Honestly, if you already own a PlayStation 4, this seems like a good purchase to me, and a way to further enhance your experience of the PlayStation ecosystem. Will you be picking one up?
