My Opinion: The PlayStation TV sounds like a great idea and something I see myself possible picking up for the living room. It is priced very reasonably and for what it capable of doing, it’s pretty amazing. I don’t think this will hurt the PlayStation Vita, but instead help it. Sony is definitely bringing the A game to the party this time around and the PlayStation TV will only get PlayStation products into more homes!
