PlayStation TV @ The Gamesmen 491 Forest Rd Penshurst NSW 2222 or delivery
What is the RRP? i.e. why is this a deal?
It's a "retro console" so people feel justified charging a fortune for something that is a less functional vita.
Ahhh that's the reason for the price!
It’s a deal because If you look on amazon or eBay the ps tv goes for at least a few hundred dollars and this is the only store in the country that has it
Gotcha! It's a retro!
Not exactly. Just discontinued 4 years ago. So can charge whatever they want based on demand. Like the original $249 PRE-OWNED Super Nintendo Entertainment System Console they are selling. Now thats retro!
According to wiki, RRP is 150 aud. No deal
That was when it was released there discontinued now and as there a rare item now that’s why the prices have skyrocketed
@miq: Thank you. Your doing gods work.
Wouldn't u just buy a new ps4 console for this price.
You could it’s just a lot of people are interested in this item
Not actually a lot of people tbh
Lmao I hope your joking TC and I hope gamesmen meant $29.95. Even that’s a rip.
Unfortunately I’m not joking it is a rip but it’s cheaper than some prices of eBay and Amazon they go for at least $400+
How is this a deal worthy of OB?
Because on amazon and eBay the prices usually go up in the $400+
I'd rather upgrade to the PS4 pro for $100 more and use my current PS4 as a second unit.
Completely different things. People want these to mod.
Not at $300 they don't. I've got two of these btw, one is modded. Also got two Vita's. This isn't a bargain. Mod a Vita for a lot less $$.
They can do what they want. I would rather.
There are recent completed sales in the low 100’s on eBay? Not sure why you would spend 200+
I had one a couple of times. Worked OK but not great. Also didn’t allow non-game streaming which was frustrating (e.g. Netflix)
A lot of people can get around it by soft modding the console to get around the restrictions of games and streaming services such as Netflix
Don't bother convincing people. As someone who likes modded and retro console I get where you're coming from, but it's really not a deal considering you can find them for far cheaper as long as you look in the right places, as is with any retro consoles.
I still think a Nvidia shield TV could do most if not everything this could and it's great for emulation, recently on sale for $186 aud.
Sorry OP but this is not a deal.
If new it'll should have pre 3.60 firmware which will in turn make it attractive to a certain tinkering type of audience. Probably still not worth $299 but kind of amazed they still have NIB stock that they didn't already sell for closer to $50 back a few years when everyone else was washing their hands on the Vita
Probably because they had too much mark up on it back then.
Poor PS Vita / TV.
I mean, it's pretty much entirely Sony's fault my boy tanked, but like, still makes me sad. Also yeah, twice the RRP, not a deal. And even if you wanna go the "rare, retro, collectible" kind of route, it's still a shit price compared to those you can find on eBay with no effort.
From what we know OP is so super excited about this deal that he creates an ozbargain account and immediately post it.
I’m a female by the way
How much could you bet that this store in the only one in the country that has it, BTW?
I’ve looked weeks and no store has it I’ve rung stores across the county to find out if they have the ps tv and the only answer I got is no the only places that have it are eBay, Amazon or gumtree etc
Welcome to ozbargain!
Hello everyone, I know it’s a crap price and I understand where everyone’s coming from I only posted it to inform people about it being available and if you look on amazon etc they can go for a few hundred as well if you don’t like the price then that’s fine but some people might pay that much for that item if you don’t like the price then that’s fine you don’t have to get upset with me I don’t make the prices I’m just informing everyone that’s all, I’m not pressuring anyone to buy it I’m just informing people that a store has it even know the price isn’t the best that’s all
Nobody is upset with you. This just isn't a bargain. It's perplexing why you'd join up today to post this item though.
Check amazon the cheapest one on there is $420,I think this is a bargain compared to that
I could buy a whole tv for the same price
Well the purpose for the ps tv differs from a tv people buy Playstation TVs to mod them and to use as a 2nd ps4 via remote play
Remote play is actually really bad. If you're interested in one of these for remote play I'd advise you to not bother. Also check out hacking a Vita instead of buying a PSTV as it can be modded into docking like a switch and doing everything that a PSTV can.
I can't believe these are going for this much given EB had them for less than $50..
I know it is a joke of how expensive they’ve gotten it’s just people have more interest in them now as they’ve been discontinued and people mainly buy them now to mod on
Buy a Vita to mod!
Have one gathering a decent amount of dust from this deal back in 2015. Remote Play was so poor even if both the PS4 and PSTV were on LAN.
Lol old tech selling at an inflated price 'cause it's 'rare'?
No, sorry. No deal.
The history of the ps vita tv is so odd. It was a very niche failed product, I never would have got it. But checked it out on YouTube when I was looking recently to stream ps4 to another TV, and yeah, prices are ridiculous!
It's also really quite poor at streaming tbh. I set up a wired network with zero firewalls just for it and it was never perfect.
