lol. Why would anyone want to pay 100$ more just to have your T.V. as the screen in addition to no touchpad support?

Logic, where is it?

Yes of course, PS Vita + memcard only cost around $350 while an Vita TV + a good HDTV could cost $700+.

The first reason to buy any console, handheld or not, is the library; portability is merely a bonus. If that weren't true, everyone would have a 3DS instead.


What the hell?

The 3DS is the king of Japan and gaining dominance in the west. It's because of the games and portability it's selling. Not to mention the name brand and legacy. If you meant "everyone wouldn't have a 3DS instead" then I would understand. But I don't quite get what you are saying.

Sure; the PS Vita TV is an OPTION, not a replacement. But I thought you could already play PSP (Vita) games on your TV with a special cable? As for this nonsense about "why would anyone play a portable on the TV", it's because there are always some key exclusives on the handheld that not on any home consoles. That's especially true for the GBA and DS (and we REALLY need a way to play (3)DS games on the TV).

Lets see.....its a handheld so blowing it up for the big screen sounds horrible, it lacks features the original lacks making some games unplayable and making some features in others unusable, and has nothing to actually offer.......

Right, this thing will bomb so hard it will make the Virtual Boy look like a success.

Aside from portability.


There's your answer. People who want a portable device will buy the portable console. It's a huge factor, especially for people still in school or who have long commuting journeys etc etc.


This.

Plus I'm pretty confident that if the Vita TV can stream PS3 games, the same functionality will be brought to the portable version soon enough.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player both did quite well (and I can't live without both).

people don't really buy the vita, so I'm sure the vita tv will sell worse than psp go.

The Vita TV cannot do everything the PSV can do. Even with a PS4 controller, you still do not have access to everything the PSV does. The PS4's touch panel is not a screen. It's no better than trying to touch an area accurately with the PSV's rear touch panel since you cannot see what area of the screen you're touching. And speaking of rear touch panel, the PS4 controller does not have that. Lastly, the small size of the PS4 controller's touch panel will make it even more difficult to accurately touch an area.

Of course, as others have stated, the biggest problem is the lack of portability. Without portability, many users have almost no reason to choose the PSV over consoles or PC's.

So yes, people will still buy the PSV because the Vita TV does not negate the point of the PSV.
