IGN has published their review of the PlayStation TV (PS VitaTV). And it seems they aren’t as impressed as before. The publication says that “many Vita games don’t work at all including some of the biggest titles round.” The outlet also says that PlayStation Now is “a mess over Wi-Fi, and video-streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus aren’t available.” The unit also uses the PS Vita’s pricey memory cards, and it only comes with 1GB of internal storage. Certain PS Vita games also seem to run worse on the PS TV, than the PS Vita itself, while some games are optimized for it.
Even games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, and Wipeout 2048 don’t work on the PS TV. On the bright side, remote play with the PS4 works well, and PSP/PSone classics that are compatible “run well.”

I made a slight mistake a few weeks ago posting a link from a news source called Breitbart that many users found offensive. Not necessarily the news itself, but the source it came from. Although I had no idea of the issues with this site before I posted the news story, I still need to do a better job or researching my sources before I post them. Sorry for anybody who was offended by that story or source. Thanks to TLH for constantly reminding me to this.
