Last week, Sony held a pre-TGS event where they made some major announcements, such as its newer PS Vita as well as its PlayStation Vita TV. We’re pretty sure the newer PS Vitas will be making their way to the U.S. in no time, but as of now, the future of the PlayStation Vita TV’s U.S. release may not be so certain.
Sony executive Andrew House spoke with Tech-On in regards to the PlayStation Vita TV, specifically where it’ll be made available. House says Sony will currently only sell the Vita TV in Asian markets, such as Japan, China and South Korea, with no plans of offering it in the U.S. or European markets “at this point.”
Hopefully the sales of the PlayStation Vita TV will warrant a release in the U.S. and Europe as it certainly seems like an interesting device that could possibly support PlayStation 3 games, although it won’t run all PlayStation Vita titles due to hardware limitations. Either way, we can certainly see there being a market for this kind of device in both the U.S. and Europe, which we hope Sony sees its potential for themselves considering the Vita TV may have been the most interesting announcement they made during their pre-TGS briefing.
