Buy this and then get Persona 4 Golden for $10 on PSN and the machine already paid for itself.

Good deal...does it come with a memory card though? If not, I'll have to pass.

What exactly is this? Does it just let you play vita games on the tv?

Does not. Just the system, HDMI Cable, and AC Adapter.

Watching Hulu Plus on one right now. I've only played Super Star Wars so far but I like it.

Most Vita games, I believe there are a few that don't work on this. You can use the game cartidges but you'll want to also buy a Vita Memory Card. You can also remote play a PS4 if you have one and downloaded "Virtual Console" games from previous gen Sony Consoles on the PSN.

That's exactly what this is.. Vita games on a TV with a Dualshock 3 or 4 controller.

Play Vita games on your TV and stream your PS4 games from your console in another room.

Wow, that thing cratered HARD. I'm not sure Sony will ever touch the handheld market again at this point.

 

Anyway, to answer to question posed earlier: yes, the PSTV plays (some) Vita games. It plays most PSP and PSOne games as well, but that's about the extent of its abilities. You'll have to get the PSP and PSOne games digitally, from Sony's store. You can also hack it to use more Vita games (clumsily) and PSP games you can't get on the PSN store (very clumsily), but to be honest I haven't used mine in like a month.

Many of the high-profile Vita games such as Uncharted, Killzone, and Tearaway won't work in this.

Ok, ok. I can't hold out anymore. 
I'm sure it'll probably crater even further, but for $20 it's not even worth the time to think about it anymore. 
Hopefully some store runs a sale on Vita memory cards this Black Friday.

After seeing the hack to allow any Vita game to be played, I am seriously considering this. But I'd much rather have the PSTV bundle that comes with the DS3 and a memory card. Any deals on that one by chance?

Thanks OP. At that price - why not? Is the PS4 streaming high quality enough where I can leave my PS4 elsewhere and use this as a headunit? Have space issues in my entertainment center.

Best Buy actually just had it for $50.

 

 

This one is saying unavailable for online purchase now though.

I hesitated for a few minutes and it's gone now. Oh well, I'm sure it's not the last deal we'll see on a Vita TV.

Damn, I would've hopped on the bundle for that cheap. Oh well. I bet it will drop that low again soon.

pretty tempting... I'd really just be buying it with an eye towards an eventual hack coming out. but if nothing releases...

Does this thing actually do anything without a memory card? Like remote play?

 

I have a Vita with an 8GB card. Can that be swapped between Vita and PSTV without reformatting the card or something?

Anyone know if this works with the dualshock 4 or just 3, because my 3 is busted. Thanks!

As long as both are the same account. I've actually been just taking advantage of PS+'s cloud save (and separate memory cards) to go back and forth.

Yes it will and I believe you can even make use of the touchpad.
