So here’s one of the strangest ideas that I’ve seen recently, and that is the Dekavita 7. This isn’t a new console in the Vita range but instead a peripheral that makes the PS TV portable. As in a shell that turns the PS TV box into a Vita but without the same capabilities of the handheld, like the touch pads. This device would allow you to plug in you PSTV into it so you can play while on the move. The report comes from Japanese site Inside Games, and there are some pictures too.
It isn’t Sony making this device but a company called Game Tech. The most bizarre thing though is the price tag. Dekavita 7 is more expensive than the actual PS Vita console in Japan. It’d be cheaper to own both the PSTV and the Vita instead. I’m all for interesting and useful peripherals, but this shell seems utterly useless and way overpriced. In Japan the Vita is priced around 19,200 yen while this is 19,800 yen. I honestly can’t see who would buy this.
