A Casual Look.. at the PlayStation TV

The PlayStation TV just came out recently, and I picked one up and have been using it quite a bit. This is a brief/casual look at the hardware, a couple of things in the GUI, a super brief look at the PS Store, and gameplay footage from the various platforms the PS TV is compatible with (PS Vita, PSP, PS1, PS Minis, and PS Mobile games).

There was a lot of information that I wanted to add, but chopped out for flow or length reasons (this was a fairly off-the-cuff video that I tried to edit down to be a little more tolerable to watch). If you have any questions, please post a comment below and I should be able to help you out, there was a lot of stuff I didn't get to touch upon in this video--some positive, and many quite negative.

Throughout my life I have been an avid gamer. My early years in particular consisted of growing up with platforms like the Atari VCS/2600, NES, and Master System. Naturally, that led into platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD/32X, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, etc. In the mid to late 1990's, I realized (as a fledgling teenager with little disposable income) that I could obtain those systems that I once thought were completely out of my reach as a child (Neo-Geo, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, 3DO, etc.), and it was from there that I went into a long-term phase of discovering, experiencing and collecting consoles--just about anything I could get my hands on. While I enjoy the occasional modern game, these days time is limited outside of my many hobbies, so I tend to hover towards quick pick-up-and-play types of games, via generations I truly grew up with: Shoot 'em ups, arcade style beat 'em ups, platformers, light gun shooters, and racing games. Not to mention pinball games, something new (to me) that has become a main focal point of interest. In addition to the podcast with Kris, I also create a variety of content on my own YouTube Channel, including video game reviews, Long Plays, and Let's Plays.
