Here's more information about the PS Vita TV:

- Plays PSP, Vita and PS1 games
- Has all the Vita apps for movies, HULU, Netflix etc.
- Runs Vita OS
- 9450 Yen / $100
- Can Remote Play PS4 to another TV if the one the PS4 is connected to is being used.
- Launches in Japan on November 14
- 6cm x 10cm console
- There will a be a $150 bundle for the console + 8GB memory card and a white Dualshock 3.
- Any Vita games that use touch are not compatible. Possibility for updates for those games to make the compatible.

This seems like an amazing device for $100 if you are already invested in Sony or have never bought a PS Vita or don't care about playing games on the go. But, does this mean the death of the PS Vita? Would someone buy a $200 Vita when they can buy this for the home? Did Sony just beat Apple to the punch?

As expected, Sony announced their own virtual reality headset at GDC last night. From the PlayStation Blog:

Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time. Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation. In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience.

Sony renames Project morpheus to Playstation VR.

Sony officially unveiled the consumer title for the Project Morpheus during the Tokyo Game Show Sept. 15.

We've known about the virtual reality helmet and even its first quarter 2016 release window for some time, but during their Tokyo Game Show keynote, Sony execs got specific about the intention of the device. They renamed it the Playstation VR.

Forbes provides further details:

First announced back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference, Sony's Oculus Rift rival is powered by the Japanese giant's latest console – the PlayStation 4 – so the official moniker makes sense.

"The name 'PlayStation VR' not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience," said Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division.

"We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside third party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR."



Virtual reality is on its way, folks. And there are many, many options between this Playstation VR, the Oculus Rift, HTC/Valve's Vive, Microsoft's Hololens and more. Let's hope this variety of product provide more than disappointment.

Bad news, everyone: Driveclub is joining Watch Dog's delayed club. In a statement, president Shuhei Yoshida said:

DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.

This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members' Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released.

The exact new launch date is unknown, but it will be some time in early 2014. Now what will we play at launch?
