Sony proves you can't half-ass a set-top box with the PS Vita TV

A little while ago, Sony announced it's own low priced set-top box, the PS Vita TV, launching initially in Japan. It's priced similarly to our own Apple TV yet offering something Apple's box does not – directly – in the form of gaming. But, as the first reviews appear, it seems Sony's half-assed...
