PS Vita TV Is Region Locked To Japan
At least for now.
Bad news if you were planning to import a PS Vita TV to avoid waiting for a Western release to be confirmed, as you’ll only be able to use it with a Japanese PSN account at the current time.

“Initial signs are not good” says NeoGAF user desbang – “it will only let me log in with my Japanese account”. Hoping the 3.00 firmware would change things, he updated but to no avail, with a message saying that the “seservice is not available” in his region, rendering the system useless to him.

PS Vita TV offers a way for you to play Vita games on your the big screen – naturally – as well as stream your PS4 to another screen very easily over WiFi, essentially offering Remote Play on a bigger scale.

It won’t play all Vita games, though – the user notes that the system comes with a list of 60 games which are not compatible. It seems quite limited, at least for now, though if the price is right it might just be worth it upon a release here in your territory.
