Suppose Sony came out with a tablet-shaped PS4 controller that could download your PS4 games. It would be a perfect portable "remote play" option that would work anywhere and not be dependent on streaming over internet.

Is this something you would buy?
Would VITA compatibility be a must for you?

What would compatibility with PS4 games be like? Would you put disks directly into it? Would it just be a Vita that played disks instead of carts? It's too vague to make an informed decision.

I would buy a portable PS4 that played digital PS4 games. Vita compatibility not needed since I have a portable device capable of playing those games already.

I'm thinking they could have two versions.
A cheaper one that just plays games from your digital library.
And maybe a more expensive one that can also play discs.

No, because that would limit me to digital copies. Also, how would it be designed? Would it be dorky looking like this?

If so, no thanks.

Not really sold on the tablet with controllers design. I need something I can fit in a briefcase with ease

the switch has terrible ergonomics and anybody who likes tablet-like devices for handheld gaming is stupid

Yes, kind of.


The only problem with portable games going forward is how bulky/uncomfortable a handheld would need to be to play the same types of games available on a modern day home console.....


I kind of think the Vita hit the sweet spot in regards to design, comfort, and quality of games it can play....


Just look at the Switch, that s*** looks uncomfortable as hell to play on.......







Now if companies like Sony could massively improve the quality of streaming devices and streaming play i could see a streaming device being possible in the future......basically like an accessory to your home console that lets you fully stream games in near perfect quality on a portable device....

Table seems not pocktable to me, like a Wii U tablet. That's not really something I can bring around with me easily, nor can I play it unobtrusively.

I might buy something like that if there were enough PS4 games I wanted to play. So far, PS4 has zero exclusives, out or announced, in which I'm interested.

Like the size of a Nintendo Switch? Sure. Much bigger than that and probably not.
