Positives


Very small, affordable, extends PS4 gaming beyond one TV, cool design.

Negatives


Not enough content, remote play can be laggy, no streaming apps.


Bottom Line

Sony PlayStation TV sounds great on paper. The ability to stream games to a second TV definitely interests a lot of players. It also serves as a micro-console, allowing you to play less-demanding games. Finally, it allows you to watch movies, TV shows and similar content (of course, you have to buy or rent them through Sony Entertainment Network). In reality, there are a couple of problems. Streaming over Wi-Fi isn’t completely lag-free. Selection of the games is decent, but could be better, and Sony PlayStation TV lacks popular streaming apps like Netflix or Amazon’s Instant Video. Overall, the PlayStation TV is an interesting product with a very competitive price that will certainly get better over time. If you’re heavily invested in the PlayStation ecosystem, than PS TV can be a good choice for you even today.
