Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida Confirms that PS Vita Remote Play of PS4 Games Will Work Through the Internet

One of the big questions left on remote play feature that will establish a connection between PS4 and PS Vita, is if it’d work only via local Wi-fi or also online like it did (rather poorly) for the PSP, allowing you to stream your game even when you’re not at home.

Looks like fans of the feature have a reason to rejoice, as Sony Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida just confirmed it. (PS Vita, PS4, Shuhei Yoshida)

This is a "power of the CLOUD" feature that I can get behind.

Actually, this IS exactly the stuff that the Cloud will be used for, Microsoft's Azure included. Cloud isn't going to turn Xbox One games or PS4 games into Xbox 1000 games or PS19 games (not graphically, nor in terms of AI, nor in terms of physics, nor in terms of anything else except very broad, very 'background' tasks). But being able to check your Xbox One account, begin a game download, check your Live messages, Skype with someone on their Xbox One from your tablet or on your Windows phone are features well within the realm of possibility

...and remember, Microsoft is trying to unify all their services. Cloud isn't going to be used solely for Xbox One. It'll be the method by which Microsoft brings together all of their products, for better or worse.

Are all companies tryng to unify their experience now. That sounds just like the "One Sony" mantra that Kaz is incorporating into sony's divisions now (and that a$$ hat hedge fund manager is trying to destroy) and since i'm primarly a Playstation gamer i'm gonna be going for the unified Playstation Xperience.

You honestly have no clue what you are talking about.


What is the Cloud?

Amazon has a cloud that powers websites. Sony has a cloud that streams game video so you can play a game that you don’t have on your machine. Now Xbox Live has a cloud that somehow powers games. Cloud doesn’t seem to actually mean anything anymore, or it has so many meanings that it’s useless as a marketing word.

Let me explain this simply: when companies talk about their cloud, all they are saying is that they have a huge amount of servers ready to run whatever you need them to run. That’s all.

So what is this Xbox Live Cloud stuff then?

Microsoft has a cloud service called Azure (it’s a real thing – you can go on their website right now and pay for servers and use them to run whatever you want). Microsoft realized that they could use that technology to solve our problem.

So they built this powerful system to let us create all sorts of tasks that they will run for us, and it can scale up and down automatically as players come and go. We can upload new programs for them to run and they handle the deployment for us. And they’ll host our game servers for other platforms, too! Titanfall uses the Xbox Live Cloud to run dedicated servers for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

But it’s not just for dedicated servers – Microsoft thought about our problem in a bigger way. Developers aren’t going to just want dedicated servers – they’ll have all kinds of features that need a server to do some kind of work to make games better. Look at Forza 5, which studies your driving style in order to create custom AI that behaves like you do. That’s totally different from what Titanfall uses it for, and it’s really cool! So it’s not accurate to say that the Xbox Live Cloud is simply a system for running dedicated servers – it can do a lot more than that.

Not all clouds are created equal and with Azure they are going to offload AI and do more than provide better connections with dedicated servers.

Maybe you are the one that should go do some research. MS Azure cloud does provide all those services that he is talking about. MS Azure cloud provides thousands of services to over 1 billion users worldwide. This stat is from MS itself, not something I made up. It's stated in a video on the website for Azure itself. Right on the front page. I know, it takes a master researcher to actually find that kind of thing though, so I don't blame you for not being as awesome as I am.

In fact, MS cloud works like almost every other cloud system out there, in that it can pretty much do whatever the client using the servers needs it to do. That is what the cloud is, and that is what Azure is. Even Gaikai isn't necessarily a special type of cloud server, it is just tailored to stream games, again, using the client software built on the cloud servers.

There is no mythical uber awesome Xbox cloud, there is only Azure. It provides the service that the publishers need it to do, and it provides the Xbox the ability to do whatever MS programs for it to do.

nVidia, learn a thing or 2 from this please
the SHIELD is pretty much dead on arrivals!

1. bulkier and heavier than Vita

2. only can stream Steam games while on the same network as the pc streaming it

3. limited to android games when outside the house

4. more expensive than Vita

what's the point of the SHIELD again?
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   885d ago
Forza 5' prabably have nothing to do with distributed computing of AI, it seens it doesn't "create an AI" at all! Seens to me cloud is just being used as a database storage for an Adaptative AI which is running locally, as Adaptative AI is heavy on real time tasks, not a good idea to make that through internet unless you want to see cars turning or ramming too late.

In case you don't know what Adaptative AI is, it's just AI that will analyze you behaviour in order to choose which of the many parameters it already have to react the best at a given moment, it's pretty common now a days, some are done better than others.

Forza's "mimic AI" is the same concept, but instead of reacting to what you do, it will choose its parameters that best mirror what you're doing at a given situation. When the "mimic parameters" are combined with "reaction parameters" you have a car that runs against you making decisions that are like those that you would be doing yourself without being just a ghost of your last race. It can get even more like you as it collects more data on how you react on each situation and analyze which is more usual for you if it keeps many of those complete "paramaters set" saved and compares 'em.

All cloud really do in this scenario is storing those "parameters set" (don't know if your last one or many of 'em) when someone play, so when you are in single player (but are online), you'll download those parameters from a bunch of people, making it look like you are racing agaisnt them, even though it's an AI. Probably cloud will categorize sets of parameters by difficult (by average lap times and/or average position on online races) to make it possible to not only play against friends and random people, but to also have a pre-set difficult race against "real person AI".

Now, I'm not downplaying it, it's a great idea and can really improve gameplay, clever use of cloud storage too, but it's not any indication of that "power of the cloud" anyone's expecting. This could just as easily be done without cloud, but limited to people you play with (and obviously not constantly updated as Forza will likely be updating those parameter set to cloud every time you play).

So no, it's not just a question of people not understanding what Cloud is... Au contrair, the problem is that we do (well, not that guy comparing it to PS4-Vita stream, but most of us). And we understand that distributed computing is hard to use for real time application, not necessarily because of this cloud service limits, but because internet connection, making us all skeptical... And not Forza, not Titanfall nor any other game so far has showed us something that's worth the PR talk.

grailly  +   886d ago
I hope not, not for AAA games at least, I want them to use 100% of what the hardware has to offer, not let some on the side to do other activities. (I would be fine if game scaled, though)
SpinalRemains138  +   885d ago
Probably not. The Xbox is dedicating a Gb of Ram just for multitasking like that.

I see no way ps4 can do this with only 1gb dedicated to their whole os.

This is a good thing though. More resources for actual games to use. Multitasking is great on a mobile device, but for a console, not so much. How many things can u play or watch at once?
porkChop  +   885d ago
It could probably be done. Remember, the PS4 has a dedicated high-end ARM processor/GPU specifically for things like background downloads, streaming, etc. That ARM processor/GPU would be more than enough to handle Netflix while the PS4 streams to the Vita through Remote Play. And if the game is being streamed through Remote Play it would probably be rendered on the PS4 in 960x544, instead of 1080p, freeing up quite a bit of power/resources.

FamilyGuy  +   885d ago
No, it doesn't work like that. The PS4 will be streaming what's shown on screen to the Vita. Vita will have the control and whatever you see on the Vita screen is also what you'll be seeing on the PS4 screen.

They've already stated this. "It won't be just a blank screen saying that remote access is being used, it'll be showing the gameplay that's being streamed to the Vita."

That would've been a cool feature, maybe if it's requested enough it could happen but that would be really multitask heavy. Netflicks accessed while a video game is being played and streamed to the Vita. Both things would be using the PS4s internet access and it's processor. It's really unlikely.

Argus9  +   885d ago
If you're getting a PS4, you may as well sign up for Plus now. There's a ton of great games available for free now and in the pipe, and if you own a PS3 too, that's three systems you're getting free games for several times a month. You could honestly almost never buy new games and still have an impressive library to choose from. Be warned though - you're going to want one of the bigger memory cards for your Vita to play all those free games, so consider a 16GB or 32GB card if you don't already have one.

^ I used to own Golden Abyss. Great game. I have a 3 month PS+ card saved for my PS4 but I will look into what's available right now. Thanks.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   885d ago
I just got a Vita in anticipation for PS4, it's a great machine, but not so good on games... Now let me explain, actually there are good games enough to be worth to own the machine, but right here in Brazil we don't have plus, the only memory card released is 4GB (everything else imported cost anywhere from 125 to 200 dollars and are hard to find as most other accessories, I'm waiting some more 2 weeks for a crapie grip) games on cartridge cost way too much and cards are just too small to be worth investing reavily on digital only, hence I'm yet to build that worth library.

I'm not that worried as I know I can just uninstall/install games back and forth, also Plus will be here before Xmas, so will bigger memory cards. But 'till there, I'm definetelly not enjoying it as much as I expected... Anyway, I'm sure PS4 will make it worth the trouble.

I wasn't remotely interested in the Vita, until I read this article.
FamilyGuy  +   885d ago
It's about time that they clearly stated this for people. I've been saying it for months and people kept insisting it was only going to work local like network sharing or the Wii-U game pad.
It's called "Remote Play", the name comes from it being similar to "Remote Desktop" which allows you to access your home PC and it's content through the internet.
Psps Remote Play didn't force you to be at home, why would a better version take away the functionality?

I'm glad they've squashed that lie, now people claiming that "PS4s Remote Play won't sell Vita's" will understand why I and many others believe it WILL sell Vita's. Playing your PS4 games on your Vita while on a break at work for example, it's genius.

I already knew this was true, all I really want to know is if multiplayer via remote play works. Can Killzone: Shadowfall's multiplayer be accessed via Remote Play through the Vita?
Salooh  +   885d ago
You use remote play to controle the ps4 which means you will have access to everything in the ps4 not like the ps3 which require developers to sacrifice power to support a specific thing to work.

In a short way , Online will work :) ..

I doubt online multiplayer games will work on remote play, but if they did I would explode with utter joy.

Abriael  +   886d ago
@Thirty3Three: What made it not-so-obvious is that the PSP streamed at a much smaller definition and it didn't really work well even then, meaning that Sony could have just gave up the ability to stream online in order to focus on local and do it as well as possible like the Wii U does.

It's a good thing that it's confirmed :D

It really annoyed me and I'm glad they've finally cleared it up for those people.

If it's completely unplayable outside then it'll be a good thing to do when the day's come to an end and there's nothing to do aside from sit inside due to the sun having set.

Easy Sony confirmed that the PS4 can work like the Xbox One had planned to except that all these features are optional. You can simply choose to install those games onto your hard drive if you don't want to switch those games out too often.

You will have the option to install games onto your PS4's hard drive in short if you want to. So no need for some complicated DIY machine.

You can't do that, because the PS Vita doesn't have any hardware to downscale the PS4 game to its resolution. The downscaling has to be done by the hardware video encoder on the PS4.
iamnsuperman  +   886d ago
I used it with the one working game: the God of War collection. What is does is basically makes your vita become a controller with a screen. On the screen you see the xmb and you just go to the game. No installing needed. It even turned on the PS3 for me. Its good. As far as i remember you can't over the 3G but it does over wifi.

I gotta say, I would have been far happier with some kind of wifi direct vs internet. This now makes PSVita remote play very dependent on your internet connection and that is a bit worrisome. I think Nintendo WiiU still has the best solution of the 3 for any kind of 2nd screen play.
Chaostar  +   886d ago
AFAIK there's no confirmation of the finer details of how streaming to Vita will work. It seems safe to assume that when on the same network the signal will not be passed over the internet and back when it could go straight to the Vita.

I agree that Nintendo has a great system in place for dedicated streaming but it has it's limitations such as only being able to stream in the vicinity of the console and to only one particular device.

You can still use the Vita as a PS4 controller via a local connection. It's just that when you're not on the same wi-fi as the PS4, you can still play it. That's all this is confirming.

I'm with you, releasing it early wasn't the mistake , the mistakes are

¬ (Main problem) Not releasing serious games like GTA/GT/Tekken/MGS...etc
¬ The memory's are expensive and nothing encourage me to upgrade.
¬ vita features are locked.
¬ Even the games doesn't worth their price.

Developers are waiting people to buy vita and then demand , people wait for developers to make games for it then they will buy the vita , you see how it works in vita ?.

The reason the wii u does it so great is cause it was built to stream games and not using regular wifi but a special type they made with a other company ...the ps4 and vita where made to play games on a tv first streaming was not there first option unlike the wii u it was made to stream just take a look at this link so you can understand a little more better ..... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

I think you should read this and understand better.

"“In short, there’s a video coder chip inside PS4 that enables a variety of features. It enables live broadcast of your gameplay without putting any overhead on the CPU and the GPU combo, so it’s not dragging down the game performance in any way, shape or form. But it also allows you – and it is Gaikai enabled technology – allows you to pick up the Vita and go away with a full suite of controls and play your PS4 game over WiFi”.

I totally understand what there saying and they might be right about it not puting no strain on the CPU gpu etc but it don't change the fact that it still streaming over wifi and again that depends on the connection speed ..yes you will get full controll but it will be lag ...we can sit here and disagree all day so lets just wait till it comes out they might of solve the problem ...but remember this is Sony we're talking about here they stay changing specs and removing features so lets see if it really works like there saying... cause I know Nintendo researched how to pull it off for years so they could just have just reversed engineered the wii pad tech for them selfs like they did with the wii remote .....if true that means more ports of ps4 games to wii u so I guess both fans win :-)

Well the problem is, I don't actually play online -yeah, I know I'm a dying breed- so do I have to get a yearly PSN subscription that I wouldn't normally consider paying for just to use the remote play feature through the internet? Do I have still to pay for it if I only want to enjoy the local wi-fi streaming function at home?

I've already paid for Vita, and I'll be paying for the PS4 as well. I think the remote play function should be a feature of the physical system you buy, not an optional service that you have to pay an extra $60/year just to use it. They advertised the hell out of the remote play function when they were marketing Vita, so making it a paid service now, wouldn't be the best move.

Guess we'll wait and see how it works.

Tears of joy. PS4 has won this generation if they keep their promises. No logical being can dare argue.

Having your console connected to the internet and having digital downloads to make this feature work the best. What a novel idea. Now all of a sudden Sony fans love always being connected and using digital downloads.

Best of all is the 'native' remote play support that's built-in. That means it's not tied to PSN but rather your the PS4 & Vita's IP & mac address's.

You could literally be three states away and still enjoy PS4 games on The Vita.

Still think the vita aint worth it kids? you're sadly mistaken

What? You need the Internet for this to function??? Booooo... Down with Sony!! What about those people who live in submarines??

Seriously though, I hope it works better than the vita/PS3 iteration, which disapointed me!!!!

So basically if you have a 4G phone set as a modem, you can connect your Vita through Wifi with it and play anywhere when there's no wifi available.

Sony should release a 4g Vita so that you can remote play at any time.

There is a 3G Vita. Don't know enough about 3G or 4G to know if 3G is adequate.
kingPoS  +   885d ago
That's what I thought
So let me get this straight, if your home & workplace have high speed internet your golden.

Though I'd imagine you'd need a decent upload speed to avoid lag.

Sounds good... bring it on. I'm on board
