I'm actually pretty excited for this thing because it means I can finally own all of the PS2 AC games (rather than having to go over to a friends house like I used to do when I first played the older games). 

 

I read on IGN (I know, not the best info source) that it does have a large collection of PS2 games on it, so if I get one I'll be buying Armored Core 2, 2AA, 3, Silent Line, Formula Front, Nexus, Nine Breaker, etc. 

 

what about you guys? What do you think about this thing?

Could you go a bit more in detail please?  I never heard a thing on this so this is news to me.  Mind posting the link to it so people can read it?  I just tried finding it and couldn't find it on IGN.

So it seems that you will not be able to purchase the games, only rent them.  Though that is just from reading the sony site on the Playstation Now service, which is what is mostly running this box.  This really bothers me, the lack of a physical medium while also not allowing you to "own" your game.  We are slowly entering the arcade days again buds, the days where you will spend all your hard earned shiny quarters (dollars) on hours of entertainment, with nothing to show for it except a lack of funds, and a memory.

You do know that this PSTV box also plays vita games, right? Playstation Now is an entirely different service that this box supports. There's no details on how you can do it, but to my understanding, it supports physical cartridge from the vita, downloadable vita games, and streaming from a local PS4 console.

From the Website:

"Playstation Now Ready  Available later this year, Playstation Now will give gamers access to an expanding library of PS3 games to stream directly to the Playstation TV system"

 

http://www.playstati...s/explore/psnow

 

From the Website:

"Variety of Rental Periods  Choose the rental period that best fits into your play style.  Sample the game with a 4 hour rental or go deep with a longer duration"

 

The only thing that I got incorrectly was the inability to have a physical medium.  However if you think about it, if this works out as a success with sony, they they will probably start making the shift to download/streaming only service like they have been trying to do for awhile now.

I've been hearing about this console/box/thing for a while now, and everything I heard about it was that it was primarily a PS Vita without a screen controller. Playstation now is a service that sony's been trying to push for a while now, so I'm not exactly surprised to see that there either, but you should be able to download and play regular PS Vita/PS1/ported PS2 games as permanently purchased downloads in addition to the streaming service, as you already can with the existing vita.

Well, we will just have to see where the future takes us, sony's consumers, and their company.  Heres hoping it all works out for the best.

There's probably some information about the console, since it was already released in japan, but I haven't looked too hard for it. I'll most likely have one, so I can share my experience with it when I do.

I just got one in the mail, so I'll be playing around with it and can hopefully answer questions about it that anyone has.

I haven't really been able to download any games as of yet due to still figuring out a memory card to use. However, I was able to test the PS4 streaming, and it worked pretty decently. Not great, but functional. If you're looking to buy one, then look at the list of compatable stuff, and figure out if that's enough for now until things get improved. If not, then wait.

 

It's a really cool alternative if you want to play the downloadable stuff, though, just due to the physical size of it. It's insanely tiny, and really easy to plug in just about anywhere.

 

EDIT:

 

Also, the PS4 touchpad is actually functional with these games, you just have to enable it, so who knows how many games will support it.

I tested them, and no, you cannot. Not until a patch is released to fix them for PSTV, at least.
