PATCH ’EM ALL
Some Vita games run better than others on PSTV
Not all Vita games are upscaled from the handheld’s native 960x544 to match the resolution of your HDTV’s display. Some, including Killzone: Mercenary and the Vita port of Borderlands 2, have been updated to run in native 1080i. It’s a welcome move, but a limited one, and further reinforces the perception that the device has been released before it was ready. Sony says it is working with partners to get more Vita games up and running, and on securing media apps such as Netflix too, but PlayStation TV is hard to recommend until those discussions bear fruit, especially to those who already own both a Vita and PS4.
