sorry if this topic has been beat to death already, but i was just curious.

a long time ago, i bought an accessory for my psp to play those games on a tv. i haven't found anything similar myself for the vita, so the obvious choice would be to buy the vita tv, but i don't like the idea of segregating the library of games between tv-compatible and handheld-only.

so, if i skip the vita and just buy a vita tv, i won't be able to play games like Tearaway (heavy on touch-screen controls), right? makes no sense if i can't play those exclusive games on vita tv... so again, is there a way to hook up the actual vita to a tv? thanks.

You cannot play the Vita on a tv.

Maybe they will do something with Remote Play working in reverse. As of now, the answer to your question is Vita TV or bust.

If you get a dev unit, they have video out from the bottom port.

Short of that, Vita TV is your only option.

hmm... thinking about it, the vita tv does more than just play vita game on the tv, so the device isn't a terrible alternative. HOWEVER, has there been any news as to having the vita work as a controller for the ps4/ps3? is that even possible? it would be possible to play all vita games on the vita tv like that, right?
