      It looks interesting, I have a Vita myself, but it'd be pretty awesome, being able to plug in Persona 4 Golden into a box and enjoy it on the big screen.

      Rayman Origins, Dead or Alive 5 Plus, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD, and more...
      Plus Sony releases 'A Day With PlayStation' trailer

      Sony has released an initial list of games that will be compatible with the PlayStation Vita TV micro-console.
      And take a look at the final trailer from SCEJA's press conference today, highlighting the connectivity between the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Vita TV, plus other social features.

      The list provided by SCEJA includes games like Rayman Origins, Dead or Alive 5 Plus, Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD Remastered, and the upcoming Soul Sacrifice Delta.

      Here are the most notable ones:

      You can check out the full list (in Japanese) HERE.

      Sony said today that PlayStation Vita TV will eventually offer a game library of 1,300 titles released for the PS Vita, PSP and the original PlayStation. Furthermore, the micro-console will also work as a Remote Play Hub for owners of PS4.

      Vita TV will cost 9,480 yen (£61 / $95), or 9,954 yen (£64 / $100 USD) with tax. The device will also be available for 14,980 yen (£96 / $151) bundled with a DualShock 3 controller and an 8GB memory card.

      And SCEJA concluded its 2013 press conference with a trailer dedicated to the PlayStation family.

      This one is pretty cool, and showcases an "ideal day" with PS4, PS Vita and PS Vita TV from morning to evening...

      Good move from Sony! They need to innovate and release cheaper alternatives to boost the sales of the software of their epic fail VITA.

      Well sadly so far it is only launching in Japan.

      But sales look like it will high, as it is already sold-out on Amazon Japan, both the more costly value pack with the controller, and standalone (no controller) versions.

      Hopefully if sales are strong in Japan, they will release it for other markets.

      I'd order one, and the fact you can use it to ad-hoc multiplayer, means that I have a chance to play some of the multiplayer vita games.

      Sony recently has been slowly gaining back some confidence from me.

      Yeah it looks pretty good. $100 dollars seems like a great deal.

      Seems like Sony have somewhat finally grown a brain!
      Now if only they would wake up and see that a portable device that is solely for gaming is going to die (unless they change theyre name to Nintendo) and make the next "Vita" a phone/tablet type device then they might see some big $$s
