    Japanese company Gametech announced a new PS TV peripheral that turns the console into a “portable” device.

    The ” ” are there because this peripheral has a screen of 7 inches or 17.78 cm (also I’m not sure if it has a battery). It doesn’t turn it into a huge PS Vita as it doens’t have a touch screen. It has, however, a greater resolution on a IPS monitor.

    Here are the specs:

    Compatible models: PSVitaTV

    Monitor: IPS LCD

    Monitor size: 7 inches

    Display size: about 154.2mm (H) × about 85.9Mm (V)

    Monitor resolution: 1024 × 600

    Dot pitch : 0.15 mm

    Viewing angle: left and right: 175 ° up and down: 175 °

    Pre-Order Period: November 11 from 12:00 November 30 11:59 p.m.

    Sale time: Scheduled for 2015 Spring

    Price: - Normal price (tentative): 23,000 yen (~$199) - Pre Special Price: 19,800 yen (~173)

      maybe at $20 this would be a cool idea. but as mentioned above, useless. I'm not sure why they just couldn't use the current VITA as a VITA TV.

      I'm guessing the only selling point is the larger screen, but i'm gonna guess vita got better quality. Some people might prefer a larger handheld, i'm a mong them, but it doesn't make the difference if it still is uncomfortable, and this device does look uncomfortable, i'd prolly get a vita and a decent handgrip rather than this.
