5w ago - Following up on the previous announcement, today Sony has released an official PlayStation Vita TV FAQ with many questions answered below.
To quote: Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just released an extensive FAQ for the PlayStation Vita TV, answering a lot of common, and some not so common questions about the upcoming hardware.
Of course the FAQ is fully in Japanese, as the PS Vita still doesn’t have a western release date, but since many are hungry for more information on the lovely little device that Sony is so cruelly keeping away from our greedy western hands, I included a full translation below.
Q: Do I need the PlayStation Vita to play with the PlayStation Vita TV?
A: You don’t need the PlayStation Vita to play with the PlayStation Vita TV, however there are a few things you do need.
Monitor or TV – HDMI Input required.
Wireless Controller DualShock 3.
Internet connection is necessary to use various kinds of content and video services and some games.
