So, you're about to welcome the newest addition to the Sony PlayStation device family into your life - the PlayStation TV. Our prediction is that the PS TV represents a huge step forward for Sony and the beginnings of a much brighter (and cheaper!) cloud-based future for console gaming. PS TV brings together a significant cross section of the PlayStation back catalog in one relatively inexpensive device, thanks to PS3 game streaming through PlayStation Now, Sony's Cross Buy initiative, and PS TV's Remote Play feature, which allows you to stream your own PS4 screen to another television in your house through PS TV. The PS TV also opens up classic PS2, PS3 and PSP games to satisfy older gamers' nostalgia and introduce younger gamers to the games that hooked their parents (and if you're wondering, yes, Final Fantasy VI is still just as great as you remember it being).
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the PS TV (and then some). There's plenty of information here for total PlayStation newbies wondering what in the world Dualshock is, as well as for seasoned PlayStation players hoping to tie years and even decades of PlayStation experience together through the PS TV.
