Sony has made a number of announcements at Gamescom 2014, including the launch date for PlayStation TV in the US, UK and Europe.
The micro-console will take on streaming devices such as Apple TV and Roku. It will be available in the US on October 14th and in the UK and Europe on November 14th.
PlayStation TV will cost $99 in the US and 99 euros in Europe. The UK price has not yet been announced.
Like other streaming devices on the market, it will offer access to third-party apps like Netflix, but unlike those devices, PlayStation TV will allow users to access Sony’s games library via Remote Play.
