Unboxing Sony Playstation TV, Screens Of Vita Interface On Big Screen

Nearly a year after its release in Japan, Sony’s Playstation Vita TV has launched in the US.

PS TV is $99.99, and also offers a $139.99 package that includes the system, a Dual Shock 3, an 8GB memory card and the game Lego The Movie The Game. I went ahead and got the full package to have a shiny new DS3 and because I’m the type of early adopter they love selling stuff to.

Here are some shots of the box and what you get when you open it up!

You can get a sense of the size of PS TV in my hand – it’s very small!

This is all of the PS TV wires with added stuff that comes in the bundled package:

The back of the Playstation TV has ports for power, HDMI, USB and ethernet, plus a slot for a Vita memory card and a power button.

The side has a slot for Vita game cards:

That pulls open similarly to how the slot works on the Vita itself:

One of those fun screens you only see once:

A new (annoying) addition to the UI is a permanent advertising screen that is the default view. Everytime you close an app/game, it returns to this screen:
