playstation tv

We already know the PlayStation TV is landing on November 14th. Now we know how much it'll cost too, after an official Sony blog post confirmed a price point of £84.99.

The device is effectively Sony's answer to Apple TV, Roku set-top boxes and Google Chromecast. It will run third-party apps, such as Netflix, and let you play PlayStation games too.

Sony has announced a list of compatible titles, including 'Crash Bandicoot', 'Driver', and 'Hotline Miami'. You can see a full list on the PlayStation Blog.

Sony's smart telly will come with a voucher for three digital PS Vita games – 'Worms Revolution Extreme', 'Velocity Ultra' and 'OlliOlli' – and has 1GB of built-in storage so you can start gaming right away.

It also plays PS4 games using Remote Play and PS Vita games by downloading them to it or by inserting the game cartridge. Or you can take trip down nostalgia avenue with PlayStation Classics, think: 'Silent Hill', 'Tekken 6' and 'Tomb Raider', which you'll have to download.

PlayStation TV will go head to head with Amazon's Fire TV, which costs £79. Fire TV also doubles as a games console, though it doesn't have Sony's huge back catalogue of titles.
