Available in Japan since last year, the PlayStation TV will go on sale in the US this October 14 for $99.99, Sony announced. The set-top box is due to launch in Europe one month later with a price tag of €99.99.

When connected to a television, PlayStation TV provides access to a selection of PS Vita, PSP and PS One games, in addition to allowing users to access saved movies, TV shows and music like any other set-top box.

The system also allows PlayStation 3 and 4 players to pick up a saved game on a different screen thanks to its Remote Play feature.

Aside from the around 700 games available through the service (including "God of War," "Tomb Raider" and "Tekken"), three PS Vita games will be provided for free with purchase ("Worms Revolution Extreme," "Velocity Ultra" and "OlliOlli").

PlayStation TV has an internal storage capacity of 1GB (expandable via memory card) and is compatible with the DualShock 3 and DualShock 4 controllers.

In the US, the device will be available in a bundle including a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card and "The Lego Movie Videogame" for $139.99. No bundled offers have been announced so far for the European market.
