With the PS Vita TV announced yesterday could this little device hurt potential Wii U sales?

Obviously it wont effect the Wii U this Christmas considering it does not look like it will be out this year in the Europe and North America. But it is released in Japan this November.

As you may or not know this little device is a stand alone Vita. But with no screen instead it connects to a TV via HDMI cable. It is compatible with Dual Shock 3 and after a firmware update a Dual Shock 4. It is compatible with most Vita games just not the ones that rely on the touch screen.

Since this little thing is only $100 I would imagine it selling very well. Parents will see is as a cheap PlayStation and possibly buy it for the kids. If a lot of people buy it then it means more support for the PS Vita. Developers will then implant touch screen controllers for original vita buyers and controls for people using a actual controller for future games.

It can also play PS One and PSP games downloaded from the store and apparently PS2 games. Also sometime in the future when the Genkia service arrives it will be able to stream PS3 games and if you have a PS4 it will stream your PS4 games to another TV.

You can also watch netflix ect as well and free online MP gaming. So yer what are the people of Nintendo Life's opinions on this?

I personally don't think this will have to much impact on the Wii U but it will a little. This is a inexpensive device what $200 cheaper than the Wii U I think. HD gaming with a massive back catalog of games (ps1,psp,ps2). Then if it sells well it will get support from developers and plus great indie titles such as Minecraft.

Okay, first off... there is already a thread that is very similar to your topic. 2: The PS Vita TV costs 200 bucks (right?) and so far... is just a Japanese exclusive. 3: The PS Vita TV appeals to a certain group of people just like the Wii U appeals to a certain group of people. They won't clash at all. The Wii U has and is getting games that the Vita won't get. The Vita has and is getting games that the Wii U won't get.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

It could yes it will also be hurting the Ouya as well. In my opinion it damage the Ouya a lot then possibly Nintendo as that is the next cheapest console. Also as you said it could also effect the original vita sales (am sure Sony thought about that) and possibly PS4.

Does the Vita TV play Nintendo games? If not then the answer is no.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Will the Ouya hurt Wii U?

Will PC's hurt the Wii U?

Will the Xbox One or PS4 hurt Wii U

Than neither will this thing.

As Ryno said there will still be people who by Nintendo systems to play Nintendo games. I know that's a shocker isn't it?

Besides if you wish to talk about the Vita TV (or whatever its called)

There is a thread right here about it
