PlayStation TV: The tiny box that does pretty much everything

This little £85 box is being pushed on two fronts: both as a device that you might want to grab because of what it can do on its own, and as an extender for your PS4. In order to use it, you’ll simply need a DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 and a TV, then you’re away. PS TV’s got a slot for Vita cartridges, but with access to PSN, you can build yourself a digital library of Vita games and PlayStation classics.

And that’s nowhere near everything this neat little device is capable of. When PS Now eventually extends to PS TV, you’ll also be able to stream PS3 games on the system as well. A large part of the appeal of PS TV, however, is how it can be used in conjunction with the PS4. Seeing as PS TV has the same Remote Play functionality as Vita, you can set the console up in another room to your PS4
and stream your PS4 gameplay to the PS TV at a respectable 720p resolution.

You might have to do some experimentation to get the most stable, latency free connection possible we suggest you wire both your PS4 and PS TV to your home network with Ethernet cables if possible. If that’s not an option, there are reports that you’ll get a far better connection if you turn off the ‘connect directly’ option in your PS4’s Play Settings. This will stop PS TV bypassing your home network and connecting to the PS4 directly, which by all accounts, will lead to a better experience and increase the range over which you can use PS TV.
