Sony reconsiders Asia-only PS Vita TV launch after 'strong response'
Sony is considering releasing its <a href="" rel='nofollow'>PlayStation Vita TV</a> set-top box in the United States and European markets, following a "strong response" from gamers. The move <a href="" rel='nofollow'>effectively reverses</a> an earlier report, where an executive claimed the company was "not planning" to release the device further afield than markets close to Japan, such as China and South Korea. <br />
<br />
Masayasu Ito, senior vice president and division president of Business Division 1 at Sony Computer Entertainment, <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">told</a> <em>Engadget</em> that it is now a possibility. "During the presentation yesterday, the European/American users showed a very strong response, more than we expected, and there has been a strong inquiry/request/demand that they want the product," said Ito, though he warns that Sony has to "watch the timing and watch the environment carefully" for such a release. <br />
<br />
<a href=" er/" rel='nofollow'>Yesterday's presentation</a> at the Tokyo Game Show saw Sony demonstrate how the Vita TV could be used in conjunction with a <a href="" rel='nofollow'>PlayStation 4</a>, by streaming gameplay to the Vita TV in another room and using a DualShock controller to play the game itself. It has also been suggested that, via the Sony-owned Gaikai game streaming service, it could in theory support gameplay of <a href="" rel='nofollow'>PlayStation 3 titles</a>, something which the PlayStation 4 will also be capable of doing. <br />
