Players then connect to a local Wi-Fi network (robust Wi-Fi or wired connection recommended). PlayStation TV is also available in a DualShock 3 (DualShock 4 also compatible) bundle that includes the controller, 8 GB memory card and a digital voucher of the blockbuster hit The LEGO Movie Videogame. Users can use parental control and play mp3 music files on the memory card.

Do you think PlayStation TV’s gaming edge (compatible game list here) will beat Apple TV and the other boxes?
