Vita TV means death; PSTV has been discontinued in Japan, so possibility of future games being incompatible is more likely.

If you are importing an Asian basic model make sure you have a Dualshock 3 for the initial setup, as it may ship with an older firmware which doesn't support a DS4.


Now out effectively everywhere. It's now called the "Playstation TV," and is black in Western territories instead of the Asian version's white.

North American INcompatibility list here: http://physicalgames.wordpress.com/pstv/


This thread is specifically for discussion of the Playstation TV device itself, including mentions of compatible Vita game sales on the relevant PSN stores. For more general discussion of the PS Vita handheld and its games, go to this thread: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=3466426



Released November 15th 2013 in Japan, with a Southeast Asian release in the following months, and gradually making its way through the rest of the world, the Playstation TV (formerly known as the Vita TV in Asia and Japan) is the smallest console ever made.

It is effectively a Playstation Vita with HDMI out to hook up to your HDCP-capable TV or streaming/capture rig. It's capable of 720p, 1080i and 480p output with custom picture scaling for dealing with TV overscan, uses a Dualshock 3 or 4 for controlling, and you can have up to 4 controllers hooked up for playing downloaded PS1 classics, PS4 remote play, and planned upcoming Vita games. It will also play almost all downloadable PSP games and Playstation Mini titles, and work as a PS4 extender. Game output in 720p looks like this:







About 2/3rds of the Vita games released are compatible; incompatible games tend to be the games which make heavy use of the touch screen and touch pad, although when needed it's possible to simulate touch screen interaction on a basic level by holding L2 or R2 or using a Dualshock 4's touchpad, but it's not fast enough to use for something like a rhythm game (e.g. DJ Max Technica Tune), or a regular game where the touch screen and camera are major parts of the game's functionality (e.g. Tearaway).

Rear panel:



Left to right:
Power button (basically works the same as on a PS3)
Slot for Vita memory card (for storage)
USB port for controller sync/charge - this does NOT work for connecting USB headsets or other controllers like fight sticks. Only official DualShock controllers are compatible.
HDMI Out (note: output is HDCP protected like the PS3, so if you want to stream/capture with it you'll need a bypass method)
Ethernet port (unit is also wireless-capable)
AC adapter plug

There is also a covered slot on the side for physical copies of games to go into.

Console bundles:

A standalone version of the console in black is available for $99 in North America, although it doesn't include any games, nor a Vita memory card (the device has 1 gigs internally you can use for smaller games) or a controller (you will have to provide your own Dualshock 3 or Dualshock 4 and an appropriate USB cable to sync the controller).

A special bundle including an 8 gig Vita memory card, black Dualshock 3 controller+USB cable, and a digital download code for The Lego Movie videogame is available for $139.



Similar bundles for about the same prices exist in Asia/Japan, although the more expensive bundle doesn't include a game and the console/controller are white. If you must have a white console, note that the confirm/cancel default buttons are swapped (O is confirm and X is cancel) and this can't be changed. Also, the "home" page which shows up whenever you close a title is region-specific, so a Japanese unit will always show the Japanese "Home" page regardless of the region of the console-bound account.

Using the console:

- Holding the PS button will access a menu used for shutting down the console, and enabling touch screen mode (you push L2 or R2 to activate a cursor representing the front and rear touch pads, move them with the L and R analog sticks, and click L3 or R3 to touch). If you're using a Dualshock 4 you can also use the touchpad.

- Triangle on the main bubble menu enables edit mode, from which you can move bubbles, delete/move things etc.

- When on a game page, hold the cancel button to close it (replicates the "tearing off page" closing effect)

- The console wakes frequently to verify if it has pending downloads/updates. At least on my setup, this triggers the TV enough to prompt if I want to switch inputs. YMMV on your setup.

An incompatible game will still install the bubble as normal and can even patch, but attempting to launch the game will give you an error message immediately. On a technical level this doesn't seem to apply to PS1 games, which all seem to be launchable as long as you can get them installed (although this hasn't been conclusively determined)


Pictured is Killzone: Mercenary, which wasn't compatible at the time of that picture but works now.

Installing software:

If you already own a Playstation Vita, you can share the same memory card between the handheld and the Playstation TV console as long as they're both registered using the same PSN account. (Attempting to use different accounts may result in the memory card being flagged as "corrupt" and formatted) You can also use the content manager with a PC and PS3 and transfer the same game install data between units that way.

The store page accessed from a Playstation TV has a specific section where only compatible games are listed, although a few games are compatible despite not being in this list, such as Soul Sacrifice Delta. Everything normally downloadable with a handheld Vita can be found via a search, and anything can be downloaded, although known incompatible games will warn you before proceeding. This warning doesn't appear if downloading using the download list.

Remote connection to a PS4

Like with the Vita handheld, the PS4Link icon will connect to the primary activated PS4 console that is using the same account as the Playstation TV. It is also possible to connect additional DualShock controllers (up to 4) which can then sign in to the PS4 normally (using either a guest account or an already-configured account on the PS4).

Related to our discussion on horrible anime before, Moe Moe DaiSenSou just got put up as a JPN PS+ game.

Guess I know what I'll be playin' tonight!



This game is Vita TV compatible. Also for Japanese PS+ havers, Ys: Memories of Celceta (in Japanese) is a PS+ freebie and is also Vita TV compatible.

If anyone wants to dive into Japanese PS+ it's 500 yen for 1 month, 1200 yen for 3 months or 5000 yen for a year; the cheapest place I've found for Japanese yen PSN cards is http://jp-ecards.ocnk.net/, which sells 500 yen codes (albeit at like a $3 markup) and various higher denominations up to 10000 yen for something like a $10-$15 markup over a straight exchange. Considering the next-best site is Play-Asia which charges $20 higher for 10k yen codes it's pretty decent.

I popped my old 32 gig card into the Vita TV after upgrading my actual Vita to a 64 and it's already full just from like 3 months' worth of PS+ stuff.

The new 3.10 firmware is out now for the Vita and Vita TV. It's the same for both systems but the Vita TV gets one big extra feature. First, it still does not have PS4 link (), but it finally has DualShock 4 support. Support for it is pretty basic (I.E, the touchpad is not supported), but I just tried it in a few games and it works fine.

More to the point, it works wirelessly. This is a pretty sweet upgrade, except now I need to scrounge up another DS4. Also they need to release more DS4 colors.

Is there no way to use headphones with the Vita TV at all? I've been thinking all day of how I might do that but I still have no clue. I was all excited when I saw that PS4 controllers were supported, but not the microphone jack it seems.

I can think of a few ways but yeah, they're way more complex than they should be. Ultimately you need to get the audio out from the HDMI to some format your headset can deal with. Some TV sets will output to optical, which is supported by some wireless headsets, you can also get powered boxes like HDMI splitters that will breakout the audio to optical or some form of analog.

To necromance a little, upcoming 1.70 update is finally going to add in PS4 remote play support. I also posted the compatible games list to a wordpress site, alongside lists of physical-only games on the last few generations of consoles.

With the new update pushed out today, we finally got remote play on the Vita TV!



Overall I would say it works quite well. It's the same as you would get on the Vita itself, except now you can use a DS3 or DS4. And of course play it on your TV .

The video quality does take a hit, but I could see myself setting it up on a smaller 720p TV and having it be quite useful. Hell, the Vita TV has more media capability than the PS4 right now (which is saying something), so I could always remote play into the PS4 to play a game, then switch out to watch something on Nico video. Which is pretty cool.

Nice. You can only do it with your Vita TV's bound account, though, right?

I did a whole bunch of digging and testing with what I can get my hands on, and I think I've almost narrowed down the "complete" list of compatible English Vita TV games:

Dragon's Crown
Lumines: Electronic Symphony
Muramasa Rebirth
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus (NA only; European version is confirmed not working)
Persona 4 Golden
Rayman Origins (NA only; European version is confirmed not working)
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Valhalla Knights 3

The only two titles I'm not confident on are:

Dungeon Hunter Alliance
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus

Does anyone know if either of those two games work? Can anyone confirm if any other game cards work? Based on my own testing and message board discussions I've found, it seems like what few other English-capable games exist are either download-only from Hong Kong, or have to be the asian version (this seems to be the case with Blazblue, Dead or Alive, Soul Sacrifice, Toukiden and several other titles).

Not currently but I would say that about every gaming device I own, I'm spread pretty thin. I added those two games to my gameaccess rental queue, so hopefully I'll have the answer on those games in a few weeks at most if no one else has any info.

A slightly-reworked Vita TV that could do 1080p for streaming video/PS4 for the Americas, and had a saner whitelist would be pretty amazing.

I think the Vita TV has some good potential, given its huge library of past games; remember that every Vita-compatible PS1 and PSP game will work with it at least, and the size of the compatible English library should ramp up considerably. That's a much better library than something like a new Apple TV is likely to provide. And this probably means western accounts will have their portable license limit bumped up to 3 as well.

That being said, I'm surprised they didn't try to work out some sort of deal to include Minecraft instead of the Lego Movie game.

No; it will work for PS4 remote play, which definitely does, but everything else works on its own, including the following:

Streaming video services (at least what's available on Vita now should work)
Vita-compatible PS1 classics
Vita-compatible PSP games
Some Vita games (the list of compatible games should expand nicely, I suspect most games that don't depend heavily on a touch screen like rhythm games should end up compatible)

I would totally buy it if more visual novel style games came to the Vita. It would be cool to just sit back and enjoy the Steins;gate game or Fate/Extra/Extra ccc (which is see is not on the list sadly). There are tons of games that I can think of that would be awesome to play on Vita TV but aren't available. Of course it still seems worth the buy because the potential of games that could be on it is pretty good.

I think most Japanese Visual Novel games are compatible, it's just their English equivalents that weren't, but probably will be now that a Western release is pending.

Unfortunately I just tried this with a PS3 fight stick (stock WWE Brawl stick) and it didn't work. None of the switch positions responded with joystick movements, and the buttons never did anything. Maybe if you had a stick that was based off a Dualshock 3/4 on a technical level it would work, though.

Bumping an old as hell thread of mine, I know, but I put together a list of Japanese Vita releases which are not Vita TV compatible, to give people an idea of what (not) to expect. There are some interesting things I didn't expect, I have a hunch some devs might have decided against Vita TV compatibility because they consider the TV to be the domain of the PS3/4, and I think the Western indies and smaller studio just haven't gotten to it yet (and also a few games from studios that no longer exist and aren't exactly going out of their way to patch anything). Of course, there are a bunch of games that make considerable use of touch controls or even make use of the camera, so those obviously won't be ported. This list is more or less everything other than what looked like dating sim-type games that will never leave Japan anyway.

Games in bold are true Vita-exclusive games, and thus only possible to play on the handheld.

4 weeks until North American release (tack on an extra month for Europe/Australia).

I keep hoping they'll push out an early update so those of us with Japanese Vita TV's can figure out a few things but nothing so far, in all likelihood if it happens at all it'll probably be a week or so before launch (like with the store update on October 7th).

corn in the bible posted:

I'm glad to see that pretty much every interesting exclusive is not allowed on the Vita TV, good job sony

Well, the "unsupported" list seems to consist pretty much entirely of games which legitimately can't work due to the game's Vita version needing the camera (e.g. Assassin's Creed Liberation's Vita version, Tearaway, Metrico), heavy touch screen use (e.g. DJ Max Teknica Tune), or Western devs who haven't had good reason/opportunity to make the necessary adjustments to get their game working. A lot is probably going to ride on how well the console does in the West, too.

I would expect the bulk of games whose Japanese versions are compatible to work: stuff like Ys: Memories of Celceta, the Dangan Ronpa games, Toukiden and the like will probably work. As soon as I find out that the North American store is up (and assuming there isn't something preventing my Japanese Vita TV from connecting to it) I'll give it a thorough checkup to see what I can get working or not. I also half-expect we'll probably get a compatibility list prior to launch, as well, and that should give us some information.

Oh, hey, Sony posted a compatibility list here: https://support.us.playstation.com/...etail/a_id/5376

Even better, a lot of games that weren't flagged as compatible in Japan are compatible now, it seems. That said, both Disgaea 3 and Ys: Memories of Celceta aren't listed so hopefully that's either a mistake or something which is still pending (Japanese Ys is definitely compatible and I think D3 is as well). Here's an updated incompatibility list:

EDIT Going to maintain the list here instead going forward: http://physicalgames.wordpress.com/pstv/

The YouTube App isn't explicitly listed anywhere

So notable compatible games:
Most indies not on the above list (so stuff like Spelunky, Dragon Fantasy, Divekick, CounterSpy, Hohokum, Dustforce, Fez, Hotline Miami, Luftrausers, Machinarium, Rogue Legacy, The Swapper, Limbo, Doki-Doki Universe, Retro City Rampage...)
both Dangan Ronpa games
Zen Pinball 2 and Pinball Arcade
Jet Set Radio
Killzone: Mercenary
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (although I imagine it will still just be single player local)
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

Portable Ops isn't compatible with the regular Vita, even, for reasons unknown. A while back Sony accidentally unlocked all downloadables for the Vita and some people got it that way, although I think it's somewhat unstable.

Beef Waifu posted:

Do we know if the Vita TV is region-free?

We don't actually know but will probably get a better idea closer to the release date. Currently it seems the Vita TV is blocked from connecting with a US account simply because the backend store for it isn't up; the Vita TV has its own store frontend to filter out incompatible games, and it's possible that once the backend store is up, everything will work. There's also the possibility that the whitelist could be region-specific (e.g. only US units can run US cards, or only consoles configured with a US account can run US cards) or some such thing, but it's probably more likely that the Vita TV will just get a firmware patch which includes an updated whitelist.

The whitelist is updated so if your Japanese Vita TV gets updated to 3.30, you should be able to run physical cards on it with a Japanese account of compatible games. Note that the game has to show up on the English list, so unfortunately Ys Memories of Celceta doesn't work. However, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace works if you patch it.
