You're talking about this thing right? If so, I definitely have one that I would be willing to sell you. Just gotta find it over the next few days. PM me with your offer of what you are looking to spend.
Not sure how streaming games is a gimmick. It's being done right now as we speak. If MS has the low down on a great streaming experience, why in the world would you not want the option? It's clearly the future of games considering every other form of media has gone that route. Sony already has a "streaming box", by the way. MS's infrastructure is massive all across the world with server farms globally and the 2nd largest cloud service in the world with Azure.. If anyone can do top class game streaming, they surely have the resources to do it. I'm all for it. I'm not concerned at all that the streaming box will hinder the traditional box. Especially when you consider the story states that the streaming box is ahead of the traditional box. All i care about is them doing it right and it sounds like they are. If the streaming service doesn't tickle your fancy, the traditional box is for you. Not sure why that's a problem. I'm most likely going in on the traditional myself and I'm not concerned whatsoever. As it's been quite clear that they're not messing around anymore. Checkbook be damned.
Just get a Playstation TV if you want a cheap way to play P4G. It can play most Vita games (but not all, double check the compatibility list before you buy anything) and you can use either a DS3 or a DS4 as your controller.
[link] About 60 bucks, Plus another... 20 bucks for Golden, 40 bucks for a Memory Card to Save on, and finally probably 30 for a Controller.
It's the cheapest and easiest way to play Persona 4 Golden since Emulators aren't a thing for the Vita yet.
Yup, it's just a Vita with no screen that hooks to a TV over HDMI. You can often find used ones pretty cheap at Gamestop. You just sync a Dualshock 3 to it.
> Systems aren't easy to find except used
That's odd, I can find them pretty easily on Amazon for a fairly decent price. The PSTV and P4G together would be like the price of a new game right now which is much more appealing to someone than asking them to get a PS3 or emulate if they're not into that.
> but getting a Vita/PSTV now is a pretty terrible idea.... P4G is just about the only game worth playing on the system
That's not true, I'd argue the Vita/PSTV is a really great console for JRPG fans (which I'm assuming people who like Persona 5 are). Surprisingly the Vita sold pretty decently in Japan, and survived by porting a bunch of rpgs to the West. Got a few myself like Tails of Hearts R, and it's pretty fun ngl.
Amazon currently has them for $44. Don't pay inflated prices like you may see on eBay. Hopefully they can ship to where you live.
PSTV has always been hard to find in Canada. I have a friend that took the longest of time trying to find one. You're gonna have to hunt for it online as that's likely the only way you'll ever find one.
Or import one from the US.
Id have to recommend the 3DS here. The Vita is a great piece of Hardware, no question. But if you are only looking to play a few games on it, then alternatively this thing exists:
I love my Vita as well as my 3DS, but if you are only to buy 1, and are not massively into obscure Japanese games, the 3DS is the much better system.
If you are looking to play a lot of PS1 games AND get the chance to play any vita/psp games you have gotten from Plus, look into getting a PS TV. It lets you play all those games for much cheaper then getting a new PS3, and it also lets you remote play your ps4 if you plug them into separate rooms.
> The PSTV is basically a non portable version of the Vita. It takes out the expensive battery and screen and leaves you with its processing. What it lets you do is play Vita games (or old psp games or ps1 classes) that you buy from the online store or buy from game stores. It also lets you use the streaming feature of the PS4 if you have one.

In my opinion the Vita has a lot of very good games if you are an RPG fan. If you aren't, well, then even the PSTV isn't the best choice.
This is probably too late but you can grab PS TV from amazon for around $68 AUD (Amazon convertion)
here's the link:
Note that the US version don't have an games bundled to PS TV ( I Think)
> ah. They are not for everyone, but it was exactly what I was looking for. And I could not be happier with it. As I said, I just beat FF9 and I am playing through FFX (which looks really good on the HDTV) before going back to FF8.
> I refuse to emulate, so this was the most cost effective option for me. I also went back and played Suikoden I and II as the PSX library is phenomenal for JRPGS.
Amazon has the combo for 69.99 free shipping
Unfortunately as your edit says because of the PS TV, this feature that could breath new life into the PS3 will not happen. Though wondering if down the line some very talented people could figure out how the 4 is streaming to the Vita/PSTV & make a bootleg app for the Ps3- but its a long shot & you would probably lose online abilities.
However the good news is that the PS Tv isn't that expensive if you really want to do something like that. It comes out at the end of October. [link]
what are you looking to spend? it's not like they are hard to find new.
Yes, though not through the Vita I don't think.
Outputs max 720p I believe.
Brand new from Amazon for $65:
a playstation vita tv [link] is pretty cheap now I picked up one for 10.00 and it works for remote play.
PlayStation TV [link]
Afaik the Android remote play builds were reverse engineered from that (and Vita remote play), so not in the official app store.
You can actually purchase a PSTV and play it cheap.
Vita @ Gamestop: $150
Aren't PSTVs still on Amazon for fairly cheap?
Also Playstation TV.
You mean that thing you can still buy for cheap that does exactly what OP is asking?
$40 with Prime
Edit: removed link because it didn't work.
Edit 2: working link
I think you're confused. PSTV is a small box. It's not handheld system at all. [link]

It's also 48% off on Amazon. Link here.
I was jus looking around, Playstation Vue streaming service will allow you to sign into NBC live app. $29.99 a month [link] and you don't even need a console if you dont have one, Playstation TV is $49 [link]
if you live in Canada, i have seen the PSTV bundle today at Dominion supermarket for $60 cdn. i got one on clearance at ToysRus last year the bundle for $50. try gamestop or classifieds.
for the US Amazon
$42 free shipping new. or used for $25
$79 new or $53 used.
They are still a good deal. if you hve a ps3 controller id get the single pstv without the bundle. it comes with a hdmi cable.
Alternatively, you can buy the standalone version from Amazon.com for under $60USD shipped.
They discontinued them in the US/Europe a few months ago so they're pretty cheap right now. Who knows how long the stock will last though.
Edit: Forgot to mention that ZTD doesn't work on PSTV atm.
Persona 4 Golden has some added Social Links, some new features like a vegetable garden (basically letting you grow items that you can't usually purchase), some additional characters and story events for said characters, additional Personas, new explorable areas of the overworld, a bonus dungeon, new music, costumes that you can wear to affect a character's appearance only, more playable days if you're on track for the true ending, various QoL adjustments to the battle system, and a special epilogue.
It sounds like a lot, and it kinda is, but don't let it put you off P4 Vanilla if Golden represents a bigger financial investment for you. The vast majority of the game is mostly the same. If you're really looking to play Golden and don't have a Vita, I recommend the PS TV, which has near-complete Vita functionality for only $40 (and the Vita has plenty of good games, mind you. May I also recommend Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc?). Golden is also only about $20.
Just think of it as a Vita with an HDMI port.
It sold like shit and was discontinued back in February, but you can still find what's been produced for dirt cheap prices.
The two features that stand out are the ability to use either the Dualshock 3 or 4 and the same Remote Play functionality as the Vita, but being able to play your PS4 on another TV/monitor instead of a tiny screen.
Do yourself a favor [link]
Here's the next best thing:
Get a PS-TV ($43) [link]
Get the MGS HD Collection ($19.99)
I would highly recommend Atelier Rorona and Disgaea 3 if you never had them on PS3. I never see them on the "must have" lists and they are amazing.
Also check out the Playstation TV. [link]
It can't play every Vita game but it can play a lot of the RPGs. Here is a compatibility list. [link]
Your bluray player isn't a Playstation TV. This is a PSTV.
The easiest way to stream Vita games (at least, in my experience) is to pick up a Playstation TV. They're pretty damn cheap ($35!) for what amounts to a home-console version of the Vita. It'll play almost all of the Vita games minus titles that heavily use the Vita sensors (Sony has a list of games that are compatible). I've used mine to stream Persona 4 Golden, Dancing All Night, Persona 3 Portable, and all 3 Danganronpa games without issue.
The thing is really just a non-portable Vita that hooks up to your TV. It has a slot for physical games or you can download them as long as you buy a Vita memory card too.
On a related note, if you're getting a console just for Persona 4, I suggest tracking down a <em>PlayStation TV</em> and <em>Persona 4: Golden</em> instead. It adds a ton of content, widescreen support, and removes some of the unneeded complexity. Plus, you'll be able to play a library of PSOne, PSP, and PS Vita games.
Both together will run you about $60, although you'll need either a PS3 or PS4 controller. I literally bought both a week ago.
Yep! Technically Sony hasn't changed MSRP on it but retailers regularly list them at $40 and have discounted as low as $30.
PS TV is super cheap
Please don't pirate games from small developers like this, it just hurts our chances of them bringing more games over in the future
Okay well... according to [link]
P4G = $12
Chrono Trigger = $25
PSTV - can't really value this more than like $35 (and I don't need controller, you can keep it) since I can buy it on amazon brand new for that price right now.
So your total is $72
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call = $20
Mario Kart: Double Dash = $32
Shulk = $21
Ness (he's also first print) = $22
My total value is $92. So if you cut out one item I'd be down for the trade.
Lemme know what you think!
link? Or just look on Amazon?
> PlayStation TV
I agree with this. Currently you can get one for $40 on Amazon: [link]
Kind of like the PS TV?
If you're thinking about buying it, I'd wait till it goes on sale like it has before.
It's also on Amazon prime
I would like to know if I can play my old PS1 games that I have already purchased from the PSN network and on the list of PSP games can I play PSP
FYI, right now Amazon has the PlayStation TV for $80 and the PlayStation TV Bundle for $100.
He's talking about this [link]
Which system(s) do you own? the PS TV is cheap enough you can just buy it and try it out.
Get a playstation tv, literally it's a vita that needs a ps4 to be played, perfect for you I think, cheaper too. The only drawback is that you can't use certain games or features, so I would still keep the vita.
Edit: it also isn't portable as another user pointed out... Another reason to keep your vita.
Unless you really want it to be mobile, you can buy one of these: it plays vita games and anything you can buy on the PSN, but it's under $80. It also interacts with your PS4 in cool ways.
edit: I don't actually have one of these, but it's going to be my half-step up to PS4 this summer.
I hope so too. They make many great points in this video too.
personally i think that Playstation has put a large quantity of their resources into streaming, and as soon as they fix the prices they will be the best option in this field. My only problem with it is that we know they will not offer PS4 games on PSNow(although i cant really blame them because that would essentially make the PS4 obsolete) and so as soon as i get my fill of past gen games i will probably unsubscribe.
The thing that i think is being overlooked about this whole streaming situation is the potential the Playstation TV. The potential it shows is huge, yet i never find anyone talking about it. It is a PS Vita that connects to the TV, so you can play Vita games on the TV, it can Remote Play the PS4 and those PS4 games fantastically, and it can also access PSNow. So what you have in the PSTV is a Vita, PS4(provided one is owned and near the PSTV), and it can be a PS1, 2, and 3 all through PSNow. Realle the pomise for the device is really strong.
Oh, and the main reason i want the PS4 streaming part is for the fact that the PS4 can be in one room(for example and office in the basement), and you can stream it's games to the PSTV which can be is, say, the living room. So if you have friends over who want to play PS4 but you dont want to have to move it, just use the PSTV! Also, Sometimes guests might want to play an old game, so you can use the PSTV for that too. Hell, the regular Vita can be remote play the PS4 from an entirely different network, so instead of taking the whole PS4 and shit over to a friends house, you can just take along the little PSTV and have the whole PS4 there. Boom!
Additionally, PSNow is going to work on Sony Bravia TV's, and some other devices as well in the future(here's hoping for phones and tablets as well(where you can connect a controller and use the device as a monitor))
In the somewhat near future everybody should have access to high speed internet. The only console people will have is a PlayStation TV.
