This DualShock 3 comes as part of Vita TV bundles. DualShock 4 support is promised in a future update.
Sony’s much-hyped home console may not reach Japan until February, but while the western world went mad for PS4 in November, the nation did get its own device – one tailored to the market.In its first week, PS Vita TV came third in the hardware charts behind 3DS XL and Vita, selling 42,172 units. The budget microconsole allows players to play their new copy of God Eater 2 – out the same week and even bundled with Vita TV at many stores – on their TV with upscaled 1080p visuals.Japan is no longer a home console market. 3DS consistently tops the hardware sales charts, and even Vita has been picking up since its price drop in February, thanks in part to a growing library of Monster Hunter clones and RPGs that appeal to local gamers. Vita TV, then, is a happy compromise, priced at a low ¥9,954 (£60), or ¥14,994 (£90) with a DualShock 3 controller and 8GB memory card. It suits a nation full of busy players who want to transfer their Vita games to the big screen after the commute home.There are limitations. With no touchscreen, touchpad, camera or gyros, Vita TV is incompatible with several high-profile Vita titles. Games such as Gravity Rush, Killzone: Mercenary and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f simply do not launch, though Killzone will be patched in 2014. Still, plenty of big-name games are compatible with Vita TV, such as the forthcoming Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD remakes, along with over 100 other Vita games and an archive of PSP, PS1 and PC Engine games. The device also taps into services such as Niconico, Music Unlimited and Reader.
