The PS Vita TV will not be compatible with all games

Though PS Vita TV will be able to play many titles, certain games utilizing the handheld’s touch screen will not be playable on the device.

Following Sony’s announcement of the PS Vita TV yesterday at the pre-Tokyo Game Show pressing, the company released a list of games that would be compatible at the device’s launch. There were a few games missing such as Wipeout 2048 and Gravity Rush.

According to Siliconera, the reason these games were omitted is linked to their heavy use of the touch screen. Still, Sony has already confirmed over 100 Vita games (including Persona 4: Golden and Soul Sacrifice) that will be playable for PS Vita TV.

PS Vita TV has only been confirmed for Japan at the moment, coming out on November 14.
