"Every PS4 game can be played on vita"

I don't own a Vita at the moment, but out of curiosity, is this sort of thing even practical? When I first heard this I assumed it meant something like being able to play your PS4 games on the go, but with it being a stream i'm assuming you would have to actually have your PS4 on and could only be within a certain distance from it.


You could play it on the go but your PS4 would have to be on at home.

Remote play already exists with PS3 and works, the problem is that it is very laggy when used over internet instead of over direct ad-hoc to the PS3, and it is supported by a very small number of titles.

I believe that the PS4 will not try to use both local WiFi and Internet connection for remote play, or that internet remote play will be limited and/or laggy. For me, if local remote play works, that's more than enough.

That's basically how it was on the PS3. I couldn't leave the same room because my connection would get buggy. But as someone said above, this time around they're doing more of a focus on it. If the radius isn't going to be increased, though, this is an utter waste of time.

I was actually talking about this with a friend of mine yesterday about how Sony is doing all this to hype up the Vita and make it seem better to which I simply said: "Wanna make the Vita better? Release more Vita games."

The controls may be less laggy this time around, but as I already said, if they don't increase the range in which you can use Remote Play, you're pretty much left with being in the same room as your TV and PS4, but playing the PS4 game on your Vita instead of on the device just a few feet away from you.

I just sold my Wii U for a PS Vita for this reason.

From the current generation of remote play, yes. Kinda.

You can use Local WiFi connection and can also connect to the ps3 through the internet, if you can get a decent connection. I have tested this from various WiFi spots away from my home and got a variety of results ranging from Ok with minor lag to just plain time out errors. The best use was from my parents house to mine but we live 2miles away and have the same high speed broadband provider.

You do not even need to leave the ps3 powered on as there is a Remote Start function that will power up the ps3 if it receives a ping from your paired PSP. Very cool!


As for the vita and PS4, I would assume this will work in very much the same way but with the added benefit of the Gaikai service for game streaming directly from the web.

Isn't that what the Wii U is attempting to do though? hand over control of the TV to your Wife or kids, but keep playing your PS4 game still sounds like an awesome feature to have.

I think it would be ideal if they allowed for 3 separate operation modes - direct connection via Ad-Hoc, LAN connection, and WAN connection.

that way you could play from farther from the PS4, by connecting to a local network that it is also connected to.

I own a Vita but don't understand why you would want to play a PS4 game on the smaller screen of the Vita. I can understand why you would want to play a handheld on a bigger screen but not a Big screen game on a small screen.

I don't get it.

Nope :)

You can use Remote start to turn on the console.

Yes, it already works between PS3 and Vita and between PS3 and PSP (PSP Remote Play isn't as good since PSP is limited to 802.11b).

Bandwidth requirements for this to work properly are a bit heavy but increasingly feasible for many people.

Remote Play between PS3 and Vita has two modes. There's local, and internet.

A local connection is obviously over a local network, doesn't involve your ISP, therefore has higher bandwidth and good quality, but of course both machines are going to need to stay within the range of the network.

Remote Play over the internet works any time both machines have an internet connection. If the PS3 is off, but in standby and in listening mode, the Vita can power it on remotely, at which point it will accept a Remote Play connection (needs a valid PSN sign-in to work, so you can't just remotely log into PS3s at will, thankfully). Quality will depend on lots of things, including your ISP and whatever network the Vita is on.
