Expect the PS TV lineup to "continue to expand" moving forward, with Minecraft and other popular game titles being added into the catalog. A special Wal-Mart exclusive PS TV bundle will cost $140 and include a DualShock 3 controller, 8GB memory card, along with a copy of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

 

Both Sony and Microsoft are not only fighting for game console supremacy, but want to try to dominate living room entertainment. For the time being, Sony's PlayStation 4 game console has dominated the Xbox One, but there could be a fierce fight for complementary products like the PS TV.
