Sony has confirmed that those online and cloud features will be rolled out gradually after launch.
Yeah, they said as much on the 20th ...
Honestly, Remote Play must be day 1. It just has to. It is not a feature, which will work with every game on the PS4, that Sony will want to introduce later. The rest that might not be available is not a massive problem but they must happen asap post launch. also, cant remember if it was confirmed or not.. but day 1, PSV should function as a controller for the entire operation of the PS4 and its software. That is how you make the PSV viable in terms of connectivity with the PS4, not just remote play access.
yea Remote play day one for all title is indeed a must, especially since Sony has been going at it for 6 years nearly with the PSP and just started with the VITA, yet it's barely in many non first party titles.
Another reason why I won't be buying any of these consoles on day one. I can wait with all the games I still haven't finished. I learned last gen that waiting a bit definitely pays off.
I believe it would work day one based on this article. Straight from Yoshida: “I will be heartbroken if it doesn’t [work] day one,” he answered. “So day one, my expectation… we have to have all [PS4] games work on PS Vita, unless it’s a camera-only game.” Link: http://www.ign.com/articles...
While I do agree with you, it's a lot easier said than done. They only have a couple months to get things going if the feature is to be included at launch and the way Sony danced around it with promises makes me less optimistic to see it at launch.
Shuhei yoshida commented on the remote play. And said that he would be hearbroken if it wasnt availible from day 1, so it seems likely that this will be availible at launch !
Just give me cross chat and online play and i'm good
cross chat is soooo last gen
But ps4 needs it anyways.
BC won't be a day one feature I guess
As long as all of the OS level social features they touted are there on day one then I'm not bothered. Too many times do Sony promise things that don't end up coming into fruition. All I want is for all the streaming/social features to work day one out of the box and I'm good to go.
With a network as complicated as Gaikais you cant expect all features to be available at launch. And the same goes for Microsoft which im sure will announce new things for live.
Oh, they'll expect it to deliver pizza and your cousin's baby, anyway.
Lol wow what news! They stated this in the meeting.
I hope Sony dont sell me dreams like they did with HOME.
I have a feeling half of the online features that were presented will be vapourware. There were a lot of 'we are looking into's in that particular section of the conference. I'm sure the PS4 will be great anyway but I don't have confidence in the online portion. It's a lot easier for them to just not deliver on those and pretend they never said it. Or perhaps deliver 4 years later..
I'm guessing remote play and the sharing features will all be ready day one given they've already showed these working. It will be things like the gaikai enabled demo mode and playing while downloading that probably won't make it by then.
I'm waiting to hear which features will require a subscription to use. I'll be getting a PS4 regardless, but I need to know what will cost what before I start to care which features will be available at launch.
The concerned I have is when the Gaikai rep was on stage, he said that SOny just gave the green light with the project. Who knows how long til the full cloud operation can be 100%. Hopefully sooner than later.
