Sony's PlayStation TV, which lets you play PS Vita games on the big screen, is coming to India in the coming days to come.
Well, we're are still days away from PlayStation TV's formal launch in India. But the micro console has been listed on Flipkart, priced at Rs. 12,990.
The PlayStation TV's India price is a tad surprising, considering the microconsole was set to rival Apple TV, priced at Rs. 7,800. Apparently, the listing on Flipkart has pegged the retail price of PlayStation TV at Rs. 12,990, which includes the main console, a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and four digital games. The bundle seems like a pretty good deal for early adopters.
PlayStation TV Base Package Not Coming To India
The base package comes with a PS TV unit, HDMI cable, AC adapter, and AC power cord. Unfortunately, Sony is not bringing the standard version to India.
Sony launched the $99 (Rs. 6,300) PlayStation TV (base package) in the United States in the end of 2014. Meanwhile, a $140 (Rs. 8820) limited edition bundle includes a PS Vita console, a DualShock 3 controller, an 8 GB memory card, USB cable, and a copy of The Lego Movie Video Game.
What is PlayStation TV?
The PlayStation TV is basically the PlayStation Vita handheld console without a screen. It has got the same specifications as the PlayStation Vita, but it is intended to be used as a home console.
The tiny micro console can play a couple of PlayStation Vita games, PlayStation One and PSP games. Through Remote Play, PS TV can be used to stream PlayStation 4 games from PS4 home console in your home onto a separate TV that the PS TV is connected to. Further, it will give you access to video and music streaming services. The console supports both DualShock 3 and 4 PlayStation controllers. The PS TV will support Sony's PlayStation Now service, too.
At Gamescom 2014, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation TV will be released in the US and the UK. The device first went on sale in Japan under the name "PlayStation Vita TV".
