Playstation Vita TV is released in North America

PS TV is here. But what is it? PlayStation TV is a tiny box that attaches to your TV and lets you play games and stream video whether or not you have a PS3 or PS4. Kinda.

You can play a selection of PS Vita games via a Vita memory card or using physical Vita games. It’s sort of a mixed bag, but there is definte potential. It’s been out in Japan for a while, and now it’s avaialble locally, hooray! [Source: Sony]

Despite the resolution bump, Apple claims that the new display consumes 30 percent less energy than the non-retina version of the iMac display, which runs at a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Priced at both a surprising and aggressive $2,749.00, the all-in-one computer rivals some of its competitors‘ stand-alone display offerings.
