    "What do you want the PlayStation TV to do for you?" That's an important question when considering purchasing Sony's new microconsole. A more important question might be "Do you know what the PlayStation TV is?"

    I ask because over the past few days with the PlayStation TV, I've run into several people who had absolutely no idea. It is not a television. It is not a cable box. It is not a tablet or the latest teen singing sensation. So what is it?

    The PlayStation TV is a small black box that connects to a television set via HDMI cable. Inside of that box are the guts of a PlayStation Vita handheld gaming system. It features a plug to connect to a wired network (built-in wireless as well), a USB port, a socket for the power adapter and two slots, one for a proprietary Sony memory card and one that accepts retail Vita games.
