Sony announced that it’s bringing the PlayStation Vita TV to the U.S. and Europe this fall under the name PlayStation TV. The PlayStation TV is like a mix of Amazon’s Fire TV and a Ouya. It’s a very small set-top box designed to play games and stream content.

The main focus of the PlayStation TV is games. In addition to playing most PS Vita games, the PlayStation TV can play PSP games, PSone games and will work with the PlayStation Now service to play PlayStation 3 games. Its features also allows you to view content from a PS Vita on a big screen. If you have a PlayStation 4, the PlayStation TV can also be used to remotely play PS4 games and content in another room. Both DualShock 3 and DualShock 4 controllers work with the PlayStation TV and up to two controllers can be connected at once.

PlayStation TV owners will have access to over 1000 games at launch and will be priced at $99. Sony will also sell a $139 bundle that includes a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card and a copy of The Lego Movie game.
