Why can't every game be played on the controller?

#1VanderZooPosted 7/13/2013 11:57:57 PM
I'm wondering, because every PS4 game that doesn't use a camera, can be played on the Vita. Sony only mandates that the developers must insure that the control scheme is compatible with Vita, and the actual PS4 hardware handles the streaming.

And Sony mandates that for a handheld peripheral. Nintendo, whose entire console is based around this controller, surely they should have made a similar mandate, or created the hardware in such a way as to insure it is used to its full potential.

I mean, that's the whole point isn't it? If something is standard, then it should be standard. The whole idea is that if it's a peripheral, then dev's never take full advantage of it.

well i dunno what games can't be played on both, but i'd assume if a core mechanic of a game required that there be two-screen play (one UI on the gamepad and then gameplay on the TV) then it would make sense to not allow gamepad-only play.

If you read my post, you'd understand I'm talking about off-TV play.
