Next-gen developers will be required to enable PlayStation VITA cross-play on upcoming PlayStation 4 games.
Correction: title and description says "Crossplay", when it should be Remote Play.
Here's a video of Remote Play between Vita/PS3 to give you an idea. Note that the whole thing will be a lot better between PS4/Vita, as the PS4 was designed with Vita in mind (PS3 wasn't). https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Being able to play KZ:SF and BF4 on Vita??TAKE MY MONEY!!! @Below if you insist :P. http://youtu.be/BLoIA5SP7pA
Diablo 3 on vita....Take my wife!!!
ILL take her you keep youre vita
I will make you a deal. Keep your wife, take mine, and give me your Vita. I need it to go with my shiny new PS4 launch day. Definitely picking up a Vita now. This is great news!
Heres an even better idea. Imagine cross controller features between the Vita and the PS4 where you use the controls of the Vita to control the character and the touch to manage the inventory and the map. That would be great to see and hopefully Blizzard does this (though i doubt they will)
This is great news but I want to know can I access remote play anywhere with Wi-Fi access, or does the vita and ps4 have to be on the same connection at all times.
If done properly through gakai, it could be a big blow to the nvidia shield.
You can use it from any wi-fi access point, even far from your house. It currently works best when you are close to your PS3, but I am sure the PS4 streaming will be much better. Such a cool feature and honestly makes the PS4 and Vita must buys in my opinion. It also gives the PS4 a huge leg up over its competitors.
I know it can be done anywhere with the ps3, but with the ps4 it sounds as if it's sending the video feed directly to the vita wirelessly kind of like the wii u, so i'm not to sure if it's Wi-Fi anywhere. Regardless it's still a good feature, but game changing if it's everywhere.
i guess thats cool but probably only usefull for a house i doubt i can find full enjoyment out of that feature in my future apartment though lol considering going anywhere is not distence enough unless i get a balcony
You can use it while you're waiting at the airport, you can use it at Starbucks, you can use it anywhere there is wifi. It's not limited to where you live and if you're at your place why wouldn't you just play it on your TV? lol
I for one am going to be rocking my new Vita on the toilet. Destiny on the toilet. It's Destiny.
But its also limited by bandwidth. Outside of large populated cities, or even in larger ones, many of the wifi connections in the US are 3mb connections down and 1mb up. Some with high latency. which wouldn't even be remotely suited for something like this. Great idea, but outside of Japan were wifi and connection is abundant, a large majority of the world needs to really catch up. Not saying its not needed or a bad thing. In all actually its a fantastic idea.
I actually use remote play a lot when I travel for work. I usually play bejeweled 2, god of war collection, and recent beaten shadow of colossus on remote play. It gets a little leggy sometimes but all in all it great.
Why announce what's already announced in Feb ?.. Many articles coming out for old news lately.
Why disagree ?. Remote controle feature announced in playstation meeting. This is old news -.-. Sometimes i don't get you people here.. It's obvious that they mean remote controle not crossplay but they dont know the difference , i auto correct this in my eyes because of the last 2 or 3 articles that repeated this old news lol
Why is GameSpot reporting false news. Big difference between Crossplay and RemotePlay.
Thanks, I corrected it myself on both occasion.
This is great news but someone should ask if the Vita can be used as another screen for local multiplayer games, the split screen on one t.v. screen becomes annoying and confusing after a while. I want my own screen!
I think thay can if they want.Instead I have a LG smart tv that with the glasses multiplayer local (for example me and my brother)we play on same tv but not split,just that the glasses do the split,well in conjuction with the tv ,but have to be special glasses not the normal 3d ones. I been playing Killzone 3 .its called dual view on my tv.its awesome.They are not expensive now(the tv's) make sure it does dual view or dual game something like that.
wow. vita meet my wallet. wallet meet vita.
and here are sony fanboys defending this remote play mandatory feature.
Its a nice feature. Dont hate, appreciate.
It turned out the good feature is bad and the bad is good. This is one of the signs of the end of the world . lol
You are not forced to have a VITA to play PS4 games unlike Kinect which is required to be on so the Xbox One can be used. There is a big difference there.
whats there to hate about it? its not as if you will need to pay extra for the convinence. also its been stated that the ps4 will act as the server to stream to the vita thus enabling developers to use it if they wish without too much fuss
yehshuah- it,s mandatory for developers for consumers convenience,dont you understand?I think you do but you just TV(butt) hurt,tv tv DRM always ON ,online fee huh ! asta la vista xbutt ....
Your heelarious from the way I read it lol.
Me thinks remote play is only the tip of the iceberg.
I'll be playing a lot of my games in bed like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Diablo 3 on a new Vita when I get it with the PS4.
Beats having to shout and move around like a retard.
I doubt that there won't be any lag though ! and playing a COD game without 60FPS is a torture ..! Then again,the Wii U gamepad doesn't actually have lag (played Super Mario Bro's U & Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate on it) so my guess "and I hope!" that the Vita remote play won't have lag or at least noticble lag. This feature will be amazing non-of-the-less. :D
Been playing my PS VITA since 22.02.2012 and never been bored with it. Now it will be even harder as Remote play finally comes out.
The way the title is worded, it sounds like in order to play games you NEED a Vita to complete.
How can you confuse remote play and crossplay?
I cannot wait for this
This might finally push Vita units out the door....I'll buy one now for sure..
As a Vita owner, this excites the hell out of me!
The title was still missleading to me, it said to "Require" remote play, so you are saying that some games might force me to having a Vita in order to play? The video said "requiring DEVELOPERS to add remote play support" Worlds apart.
Remote play to require the purchase of both the PS4 and the Vita. So basically it does the same thing as the Wii U only for a lot more money.
