Sony has announced the release date for their PlayStation TV device. The product is designed to stream media and game content and will be available for retail on October 14th for $99.99. PlayStation TV plays select games from both current and past PlayStation systems. Sony breaks down how to do so:
- PlayStation Vita – PS TV plays select titles from PS Vita, which can either be downloaded to the device or inserted directly into the system using a PS Vita card.
- PlayStation Classics – Download classic games from PS One and PlayStation Portable.
- PlayStation 3 – Our game streaming service PS Now is coming to PS TV, which will let you play many PS3 games on the device over the Internet.
- PlayStation 4 – If you’re a PS4 owner, use Remote Play to stream a remote play enabled PS4 game from your console to a PS TV over a wired internet connection. If the living room is tied up, just use Remote Play to send your PS4 game up to the bedroom and keep playing on PS TV.
