At E3, Sony announced that it was launching a $99 gaming and media box to the U.S., Canada, and Europe this fall. It is similar to the Amazon Fire TV or the Apple TV if it had game support. The Sony PlayStation TV debuted last year as a Japanese exclusive called the PS Vita TV.
The western version of the device will be able to play almost “1,000 games at launch.” The PlayStation TV will be able to stream games from a PlayStation 4 connected elsewhere in the home or from the Sony PlayStation Now cloud gaming service. The PS Now is currently in private beta, but it will enter open beta in the U.S. and Canada on July 31.
The $139 bundle will include the PlayStation TV, one controller, an 8GB memory card, and a digital download code for the Lego game. The box can access media apps as well.
