Also will it be possible to get a PSTV without the DS3 as i already have 2.

 

Im undecided if i should get a PSTV or a AndroidTV i like the fact i can play android games on my tv , but i already have a android phone and tab. i also like how the PSTV plays vita games but not all are supported.

Re: Well the PSTV not be able to play uncharted even with a DS4 controller

No, it cannot play Uncharted Golden Abyss.

 

Uncharted on the Vita requires the touchscreen, rear touchpad, motion sensors, and rear camera.

 

The DS4 cannot provide all of that (currently using the DS4 is no different than the DS3 and the Touchpad is useless. There are apparently plans to have it emulate the touch screen, but all the rest is pretty much impossible)

Ok cool thanks for the fast answer i guess the touch pad is a gimick like the six axis on the DS3. will i be able to transfer vita games from ps3 to the pstv somehow. since the pstv only uses sdcards. i can download vita game and store them on the ps3 hdd till im ready to play on vita and transfer them via usb stick or something.

Selected games will be PATCHED to remove the unneeded touch controlls crap... 

 

So as normal those publishers that want to sell to PSTV will release updates... and then those titles will be released on PSTV...

Each title thats supported via patches will likely announce the changes... with patch announcements...

but you will have to wait for those...  if remapping controlls is to much work another patch can be added... for virtual touch screen emulation as importers or japan model found out....

 

4) It Can Play Games That Require the Touch Screen

 

The thing I most worried about when buying a Vita TV was that it doesn't have a touch screen. As most games on the Vita use the touch screen in one form or another, I was dreading the idea that all those games would be rendered unplayable. However, that is not the case.

The games that require touch controls are able to use Vita TV’s virtual touch screen—though many have to be patched to do so (with a patch you are automatically told to download before you play). Then, after turning on the virtual touch screen in the Vita TV’s options menu, pressing R3 or L3 turns the thumbsticks into mouse pointers which you can use to “touch” the screen (much like how the pointers work in Dragon’s Crown on the PS3). Pressing R3 gives you two pointers for the front panel, L3 gives two for the back, and both R3 and L3 at the same time gives you two cursors pressing front and back at the same time.

If I remember  correctly some games will receive an update to be compatible with a ps3 or ps4 controller. So untill its released in NA I think its to soon to say if it will or wont work with games. 
I have my fingers crossed that it will. If it works with Killzone Merc than thats more than a good reason for me to buy pstv.
