According to Sony´s European SVP of World Wide Studios, Michael Denny, is the PlayStation Vita the best second screen for the PS4.
Bad its not for Ps3
Little big planet 2 had a dlc where you can use the vita as a second screen.
I plan to get one when the PS4 is here. As long as it works as a substitute screen. When the misses wants to use the TV if i can then switch my game onto the Vita that will be a total Win for me. If this works with every game. I'll buy the VITA in a heart beat. I'll wait for further confirmation of this.
"Little big planet 2 had a dlc where you can use the vita as a second screen." Exactly! You HAVE TO PAY for a DLC which make you use some feature! How ridicilous is that!!! PS3 should use Vita with NO DLC. It should be flawless use between these two consoles but sadly it is not.
@BioDead you brain dead? you didnt just pay for a feature, it was additional content with new levels that used those vita features... some people...
see, this is what concerns me, Sony makes these comments, and they dont deliver on those promises. heres hoping that they do this time.
I still remember when they said that NGP wouldn't need memory card for anything else than media because the game cartridge would store saves, updates and dlc's and look how it ended...
Tell me about it... I got the damn thing thinking i can do every thing they say it will do on the ps4 on the ps3. I really want to continue my game from my big screen to my vita, am i asking for too much? I think only the ps4 can save the psvita, imo sales will sky rocket for the vita the day you can play your console game on the go.. Sony has a killer shot with the ps4vita combo, sony owns gaikai now.... So no excuses!
What irritates me is that - from the start - Sony has been so wishy-washy about Remote Play. First, when the PS3 launched, they said "we are working to make a lot of PS3 games Remote Play compatible". Didn't happen. Then the Vita comes out and they say "well, because Vita is way more powerful than PSP, we can do a lot more with Remote Play". Hasn't happened, even though hacked firmware on PS3 can Remote Play virtually any PS3 game currently out. Oh, but NOW with PS4/Vita combo, Remote Play will finally be supported across a wide range of titles, right? I'll believe it when I see it.
Vita's remote play will be natively compatible with PS4 on day one says Shuhei Yoshida
The ps3 came about 6 years before the vita but the ps 4 will have much better hardware, making it easy for Sony to pull this off.
Witness on the go ?
My beef is that Shuhei Yoshida said it will be OPTIONAL for game publishers to include the ability for remote play. This pisses me off because the PS4 will be built to do remote play from the start, so WHY give publishers the option to NOT have remote play? Greedy publishers like Activision will likely refuse the right to play it on remote play so they can try to sell you an additional crappy port of COD on Vita again. OR, the publisher might try to charge you for the right to unlock remote play mode since Sony is giving them too much freedom with this option. Remote play should not be an option for publishers, it should be an obvious given that ALL ps4 games should work on Vita. I bet you that less than 25% of PS4 games will NOT work with remote play (except for 1st party games) if Sony continues to let game publishers choose not to have it....
I've never heard of one company that has a bad relationship with Sony this might be why. Btw not every game works with the WiiU pad and that's one of its main features.
@PSVita Well that isnt such a big deal. What is a big deal is that not every game works with the Wii Us pro controller which is something that i dont understand.
im counting on it sony, impress me at e3 ^_^
One reason I bought the PS Vita was because I knew it would have enhanced connectivity with the PS4. Can't wait to see what else Sony has up their sleeves.
I just bot one last Saturday I open it and installed some games and demos in it and was gana be a gift for my Daughter. And yesterday I bot Mortal Kombat, and I came to the Conclusion....ima gana keep it for my self. :D Now, I got to buy another one.... .... just white this time.
Sorry, but what the hell kind of english/accent is that? You 'bot' and you 'gana'?
Try out Mutant Blob from Outer Space, it's really good and was free on PS+
Buy Disgaea 3 for Vita!!
Disgaea will be free to plus members next week
@inmyop - Just chill ya horses man, maybe he from Jamiaca land of smiling sun.
Vita is amazing
best handheld ever
It's crazy on how Sony has transitioned me from being favorable to Nintendo to me favoring PlayStaion Home AND handheld consoles! I've always favored Nintendo until this generation but don't get me wrong I love my Nintendo products. :)
i have one so it is ready to be used as second screen on the go!
i'd love to see the ps4 bundled with the vita
The second screen is a wonderful idea, and I really like the fact that they opened this up for every android phone / tablet, not just vita. I have an el-cheapo android phone and there I'm glad to know that I'll be able to use it with PS4.
no buttons? A man says no thank you, but to each his own.
It's the best optional second screen for the PS4. That said, I dont think developers will use that function very much.
if sony captures that promise and adds these abilities from launch day, i think we will see most devs use it. its pretty much an enhanced wii u controller, and it opens brand new possibilities to it. i can think of a game like dark souls use it since you can pause and have to switch between armor/swords/shields on the fly. or Madden of course.
It doesnt matter if it's better or worse. It's the same as the Wii. A game is better if you use the uniqueness of the console to the max, and that implies making the game in a way it ONLY works with two screens. To fully program the game to use both screens. Can they do it between PS4/Vita?. Of course they can. Now, is it profitable? Just imagine a game wich is made to play "With PS4 and Vita only". That's a lot of money. I know, maybe there are a lot of people wich actually have both consoles. Still, it's not enough to quarantee good sales. I wasn talking about "technically possible". But's a disaster for the game maker's economy to use it to full potential.
@mamotte Agree with you, in my opinion Remote Play is not a PSV seller, I think the Cross-Play is.
Sony says alot of things and for the huge price their asking I'll just wait and see!
A man is confused. Have you seen the PS4 price?
I'm confused too, when did Sony announce any price point for the PS4?>_>
Let's not bulls**t here lads. We all know it's going to be pricey!
They didn't deliver on the PS3 simply because the PS3 is so old. Think about when the Vita was released, was it more along with the PS4 development or PS3 development? Of course the PS4. I always knew they were saving the Vita for the PS4 so it doesn't bother me at all instead of one that could possibly be more aimed to work better with it and was actually built thinking about that, the PS3 was not built with the Vita in mind. It just makes much more sense, instead of trying to pull all this functionality out of a system that is fairly old compared to the Vita. The PS3 still did have a few PS Vita functions though, I still play Tokyo Jungle remote play all the time. They used it in Sly Cooper 4 also. Still I can't wait to see how much it is used with the PS4 knowing it will just be easier for them to add functions between the two systems. Like I said that mystery port also could very well connect it to the PS4. Just like the Wii U but I guess only time will tell that is just a speculation on my behalf.
exactly. PS3 also has that architecture that would make it hard to sync anything to it. Amazing a company did what it did
