Need another reason to be interested in the PlayStation Vita
? Sony announced during tonight's press conference that it will tie in with the only-available-in-Japan Torne
DVR adapter (PlayTV
in Europe and nonexistent in NA) for the PlayStation 3. Once synced up, it allows users to remotely tune into live TV streams Slingbox-style, browse listings and remotely schedule recordings via an app on the portable device. It should be ready to go at launch, while the ability to export recorded shows to the Vita like one of Monsoon's
boxes will be added later. For now however, we can only look on in envy and hope rumors of a PlayTV 2
eventually come true, and come out here.
