Anyway, what do you guys think? Will you be picking one of these up? I think it's a really cool option if you want to play your PS4 on more then one screen in your house.
I don't really understand the point of Playstation TV. Why do I need that when if I can just play my PS4, PS3 or PS Vita????
You can put the PlayStation TV in a second room and use remote play to access your ps4 games, this way you don't have to move your system to the other room, and with remote play you could always just take this to a friends house and leave the ps4 at home.
Exactly, with my PS4 in the main living area of the house, I don't alwsy have access to it. Other people want to play xbox or watch that TV. This way I can just go to my bedroom and play my PS4 through remote play. Also instead of buying my son a PS4, He can just get a Vita TV for his room, then he can play the PS4 or any game on PS NOW.
As illustrated already, remote play your PS4 in another room. You can stream all of the PS available Video Services such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu etc for $99. Also you have access to Vita, PSP, PSone and PS Now titles. I am all over this. The Vita has several titles I'd love to play on the big screen.
Please, no blank friend requests - let me know who you are!

Is the vita required to use it? Mines broke
Nope. This is basically a PS Vita without a screen so you'll be able to play all your existing Vita titles on it, as well.
U cant play games that need the touchpad touchscreen or gyro
