Sony has come up with $100 PlayStation Vita TV entertainment system to bring games, video services to user's home TV. And this mini set top box is to rival the likes of Apple TV by giving it a run for its money. It will be available for 9,954 yen (with Tax) in Japan on November 14th.
PS Vita TV offers Japanese services such as Hulu, Tsutaya TV, Nico Nico Douga not to mention Sony’s very own Video Unlimited. Besides this, applications such as Live Tweet and ReaderebookSoftware are present on the platform. Sony is introducing the PS4 to Japan much later than the rest of the global village. But the PS Vita TV is about to enter the Land of Fujiyama, Sake and Kimonos. And Apple TV is getting wary of this move.
The device fits into your TV in a jiffy and sports a pure snow white colored exterior. A $100 is not much to shell out for this devastating gadget. It has over a 1000 games in its repertoire. The dimensions are 60 mm x 100mm. Among some of the other myriad services are: music, karaoke and video clips.
While Sony revealed oodles of stuff at its recent convention, the PS Vita TV beat the competition hands down. This is a wonder of computer engineering and it will satisfy a deep need for stimulation among the techie crowd.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
