E3: Sony to Release PlayStation TV this Fall for $99

Sony will release its PlayStation TV streaming micro-console this fall for $99.

The company made the announcement during its press event at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles Monday evening.

The device, which pairs with your TV, will enable users to play PlayStation 4 games on another television in the home and stream online video through PlayStation Now. It also lets you play Vita games on a TV.

Over 1,000 titles, including PS1 Classics and PSP games, will be available through PlayStation TV, as will Disney’s next version of “Disney Infinity.”

A separate $139 bundle, that will also be sold in the U.S., Canada and Europe, will include a memory card and “The Lego Movie: The Video Game.”

Sony released the small device in Japan in November as PSVita TV, and it sees the PlayStation TV as a way to not only get its games and entertainment in front of more audiences, but also sell more hardware to consumers who may not necessarily want to plunk down the $399 to buy another PS4.

    My question is if it links to your ps4 and it plays ps4 games will it support both running at the same time with the same game and different users. Me and my fiance want to play games together that don’t support local co-op will this let us on separate screens.
