    Is there any news about PS Vita TV for EU & US?

    I'd definitely consider if PS Vita TV came to Europe because then I could play Vita games on the TV rather than looking at its small screen. Vita has interesting games so it's worth a shot.

    Yeah I know that I could import it from Japan but I'd rather buy it within EU to avoid custom fees and all that bullshit.

    Maybe? I was so sure that we would hear something about it by now by I guess not.

    Currently it works only with the Japanese psn so importing it wouldn't help much. Sony is considering a global release due to consumer interest, but so far nothing official has been released apart from that.

    Vita Tv is uselss considering it has compatibility issues with gaems which means no Tearaway. Just get a Vita, you'll get more out of it that way.

    I just don't like playing on small screens so which is why I'd rather play on something like Vita TV.

    That's very interesting, thanks!

    It doesn't look like my type of game anyway.

    I heard that the language can be set to English. So you might be able to import it (Easy to find on eBay). And that also gives me hope that they will release it in the US and Europe. :lol:

    It contains every language basic vita does, including even finnish!
    What I did notice they have even translated Vita TV specific menus completely: http://imgur.com/HFeJiUC

    Dualshock 4 would settle touchscreen based stuff and it would be easy to plug playstation eye/webcam to USB port. Vita TV could be a thing if they would just manage it right but as of now I can't login to my regular PSN account and only game that works is Persona 4 Golden.

    Holy crap that Finnish looks... Weird. Never really got into using the language with electronics.. Ugh. At least they have English as an option. Now if only they added the EU/US PSN support.. Then I'd get one just for the kicks (and the nice price and compatibility).

    I think ps vita tv is a poor man's ps vita. in indonesia, the price tag is around $200. actually it's not a bad deal for a developing country. however, seeing persona 4 golden is the only game I want to play, I'm not really sure if it's appealing enough.

    I wonder why sony FINALLY decided to sell their consoles to southeast asian countries, had they sold their previous consoles since PSX, maybe there could have been a bigger video game markets.

    also, are you actually interested to buy a ps vita tv?
