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.

Sony is finally coming into its own. Its PS Vita TV lends access to a wide spectrum of entertainment facilities. There is even PS4 multidimensionality. It will cost around a 9,954 yen ($100) minus the sales tax. And it is arriving in Japan sometime in November. A detachable device called a DualShock 3 Controller along with an 8 GB memory card will sell for about $143. 

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 Reader ebook Software 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.
