Top Customer Reviews
That being the case, you might be wondering why I've given it a 3 star review. Well, there are reasons for that. Hang in there and I'll get to them. But to begin with, maybe I should explain just what the PlayStation TV is, as there seems to be some confusion surrounding the purpose of the device.
In a nutshell, the PlayStation TV is a stripped down version of the PlayStation Vita. It runs the same OS, it has the same interface, and it plays the same software (with some caveats. More on that later.)
For a person like me, there are two major draws to this microscopic games console: it's between $100 and $150 cheaper than the Vita (depending on the model you buy) and can be connected to a television via HDMI. This is very important to me because I'm not keen on handheld gaming in general, especially when the device in question relies heavily on a touch screen interface. I have trouble keeping touch screens clean, and the Vita itself never feels particularly comfortable in my big Rock Bitter hands.
Because I'm not much of a mobile gamer, I never take the Vita out of the house and would greatly prefer to play my games on a TV. This console allows me to do that. The system is equipped with ports for both Vita memory cards and physical Vita game cards, so whether you prefer to buy Vita games digitally or physically, you're all set to play. The system is also capable of playing PS1 Classics and PSP games, although in this regard it only supports digital content as the system lacks a UMD port or a CD drive.
It's worth noting that the unit comes pre-packaged with an HDMI cable, which is something that was woefully missing from previous gen console releases.Read more ›
As other reviewers have noted, the unit itself is roughly the size of a deck of cards. The "standard" version comes with only an HDMI cable and the power cable. Physically, it feels well-built and has a sleek look to it. It's practically invisible in my home setup and bears a very tiny footprint.
At launch, this unit is really, truthfully only good for one thing: playing (most) Vita games on the TV. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube--none of them work, so its use as a streaming unit for a second television is nonexistent. This is a huge disappointment because I had fully intended on replacing the Wii in the bedroom with this thing, and now the Wii gets to stay until the PS TV is patched. Do not buy this expecting to replace your Amazon, Google, or other device with a PS TV for streaming purposes, at least not at this date. I'm sure these services will be patched eventually, but there is really no reason for them not to work at launch.
A strange thing I noticed is that it did not seem to want to have a strong connection to my WiFi network despite being relatively close to the router. I have my router in my office, which is on the first floor of my house. The next room over, past a half-bath and a closet, is my living room, which is where my PS3, PS4, and Wii U reside. Those consoles, my iPhone, and my iPad all have a full WiFi signal in that room. Even on the second floor of my house, the connection is quite strong, and my iPad never has any problems streaming video from literally anywhere in the house.Read more ›
Full disclosure, I am a huge PlayStation fan. I have owned all of the PS consoles and handhelds (at launch) since the first one, and I have owned no other brand of console since then. I love my PS exclusive games, and I've been a PS+ member from the beginning. I love PlayStation, so it was only natural for me to pick this item up at launch like the other systems. I was very disappointed and will be seeking a refund. Here's why.
If you're looking to use the PSTV for video streaming, definitely look elsewhere. Although you can download and install Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube, they will not run. Since I'm not an anime fan, my only choice for video streaming right now is Sony's own Crackle, which is frankly terrible. It's free so I can't complain too much, but the selection is terrible and the commercials are obnoxious. It is in no way a replacement for Netflix, or even a temporary stop-gap while Sony figures out how to get Netflix working.
So the PSTV is next to useless on the video streaming front. I know, I shouldn't be buying a micro-console for video streaming. But the precedent and expectation has been set that ALL current PS consoles can run Netflix. They should have not launched it without this capability.
My second major complaint is the full-screen advertisement that is the "Featured" section. When you close an app or game on PSTV, instead of bringing you back to your home screen, it drops you onto the "Featured" screen, which is a list of content that Sony is pushing -- ads for new games and videos.Read more ›
