1) Can you play retail cartridge games on it ?
2) Do I need to buy a memory card to save or update and stuff ?
3) Does it come with a controller ? If not can I use a ps3 controller and do I need a ps3 to sync it ? (like psp go)
4) Does it look good a on big-ish hdtv ? (40-inch)

Are you sure about 1 ? I looked at the thing on youtube and I didn't really see anywhere you could insert the cart.

But thanks for the answers !

Yes, there's definitely a card slot. Also, about #2: The Vita TV comes with 1GB storage so you don't need a memory card if you're going all-physical.

To clarify:
1) You insert the cart inside the slot designed for it. It's pretty easy to spot.
2) It comes with 1gb, but you can insert more in case you want to go digital.
3) There is a pack with included DS3 controller, and if you don't buy that one, you can use any DS3 controller. DS4 will probably be patched in after the Japan release of PS4
4) Looks good enough for me, but my screen is not that big since I'm living in a dorm.

If you're in the market for a new PS3 controller anyway, might as well get a Vita TV instead since you get a controller as well as a nifty little micro console to with which to play games.

If you're asking questions like this, I guess it's worth mentioning that not all games are supported and that currently, it's only compatible with a Japanese PSN account despite being region free. Keep those in mind before you decide to import it.

Mine just arrived at 3rd Dec,,

1. Yes
2. No, if you buy the value pack (+ 8GB MC + DS3)
3. The value pack does come with a DS3, if you buy the reguler pack you could use DS3 from your ps3, and you don't need a ps3 to sync it. Just connect a usb cable from vita tv to DS3 for recognize it first and after that you could press home button to instant connect.
4. I play on 42" LED HDTV and It looks great!!
(My purpose to buy vita tv was to play P4G and Shinovi Versus on big screen.)
