Why PS4 is all about the second screen – E3 pushes companion apps hard

OPM: One of the bigger surprises from E3 has been the enthusiasm with which developers have embraced companion apps to manage and, in some cases, play PS4 games. Sony have pushed Remote Play on PS Vita hard and after seeing demos of multiple second screen applications on PlayStation 4 it looks like the idea is going to be big.

I'm getting Microsoft Surface next week just for this reason. It is useful in game, and you can play games remotely. Pretty insane.

There are so many better tablets out there and you want one of those?

I would definitely do more research before buying ANY Microsoft product. There's a stigma that's not going away anytime soon attached to any M$ product purchase.

I advise you do Proper, educated research into products instead of conforming to materialistic desire with groundless research and/or knowledge. Browse tech and brands outside of those you're used to, see what you come out finding....

Do what you want but i highly suggest you do your research before buying any microsoft tablets..

On topic, im glad theyre doing this. Its going to be real cool to see them use these dual screen features with vita on blu ray movies as well.. Games will prolly be stats, maps, inventory, etc for now.. Still, i think having a real time map on a second screen is fantastic in games.. No more pausing, waiting a few seconds between each input to actually get to the map, then resume playing.. It was HORRIBLE in AC3.. Hopefully AC4 uses the vita to do the same features the wii u has on its gamepad.. On top of remote play with a decent range
