Sony Has No Plans To Bring Vita TV To The West

Excited about the Vita TV making its way to the U.S.? Well, Sony’s not really thinking about getting the micro-console out to Western consumers any time soon.

Speaking with Nikkei’s Tech On! blog, Sony boss Andrew House says that the device was developed specifically for Asian markets. It’s not really clear what the market factors are behind the move, specifically, what distinctions exist between the Asian and Western markets that would make the Vita TV as less successful prospect here.

For the moment, the Vita TV is launching in China, South Korea, and Japan, streaming video content and games from the HDMI-enabled box to your TV. A release here in the States would put the device in direct competition with the Ouya and PlayJam’s GameStick device.
