Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida Explains How PS4 and PS Vita Will Interact in Remote Play

Many have been wondering about how the PS Vita and the PS4 will interact in remote play mode, and what kind of load will the Vita itself have to sustain. Today SCE Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida gave some details on what the interaction between the two consoles entail. (PS Vita, PS4, Shuhei Yoshida)

Yoshi always nails his explanations lol Hopefully we'll have some demos at Gamescom.
Donnieboi  +   909d ago | Well said
Also Jack Trenton said that vita will see 85 games by the end of the year. So beware of all those people saying that Sony is abandoning support for DEDICATED Vita games, just because of Remote Play. 85 games in the next 4 months is tremendous support. Remote Play is just an amazing new addition.

Sony never abandoned the psp even when it looked doomed, and because of their persistence the psp made a comeback and also made a killing in Japan financially. And with Vita's 85 games coming & remote play, it shows that they intend to make a huge comeback with the Vita.
ShugaCane  +   909d ago
Those allegations were based on nothing in the first place. The more devs work on Remote Play, the more PSV sales could be boosted, the more first/third parties will then develop dedicated vita games. It's all win-win, in my opinion.

i'll be at Gamescom and i'm gonna ask to play Killzone Shadow Fall on Vita with RP!
i'll make a video and share it with everyone if i make that happen!
Hitman0769  +   909d ago
85 Games by the end of the year means 85 games in 2013 not 85 games in 4 months. That being said, PS Vita kicks ass and it isn't about having a million billion games it's about having good games. Maybe if you count indie games (which also kick ass) you might get 85 in 4 months, but that is a very misleading comment you just made overall for the mainstream majority of gamers here.
Donnieboi  +   909d ago
@ Hitman: Jack Trenton made that comment several weeks ago around e3 (which was not that long ago). So no it isn't misleading. He said 85 MORE games.

BTW you said: "you just made overall for the mainstream majority of gamers here."

What does that even mean. Was that some kind of attempt to sound intelligent in hopes of strengthening the imagined validity of your claims? It made absolutely no sense.

Huh? Sorry but I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad. I'm just saying, no need to disagree with a person because they say another guy (Shu Yoshida) is a good guy. @ShugaCane is trying to be positive, and I'm being supportive of that sentiment.

That's all. ^^

I really like how short and simple his answers are, even when he isn't on Twitter. It makes things easier to understand which = less confusion.

As far as this article is concerned the only new information I learned here was that "Remote Play does not require a large memory card."

I never actually thought it would considering it's just streaming video of the game play to the Vita, but it's still nice to know. It's probably like an app that's only a few mbs in size.

Lol that would be like saying we live on planet Earth when asked where we live.... no shit it takes input from the PS4 and decodes it.

Abriael  +   909d ago
It doesn't take input from the PS4. It takes video from the PS4.

The fact that the decoding of the video has to be done on the Vita itself is quite relevant, as much as the fact that it does it fast.

The input is SENT to the PS4. It's so obvious that you didn't even get it right :D

Shuheis explanations are usually extremely simple which i prefer because they are not confusing at all.

For example, when it came to used games Microsoft gave such a complicated explanation that no one really knew how the system was going to work and thus initiated a wide spread panic in the gaming community. In a 22 second video Shuhei explained the whole system with one very simple action.

Sometimes you dont need a long and complicated explanation to explain something which is what Yoshida tries to avoid because he doesnt want to confuse consumers interested in buying the console.

Don't be so paranoid buddy I was just using Microsoft as an example of when an unclear and complex explanation can be bad for a firm. Dcy was saying that Shuheis simple tweet doesn't provide enough information when it actually does in a very simple and easy to understand matter.

One of my brothers watch cars everyday .
Other one watch football .
Other day to night search for cats picture xD .
Other one like social sites.

So why watching gaming news is any difference ?. I'm exactly like you , i don't enter anything else except learning websites and gaming news. There was a time where people made fun of me and say to me i'm all the time searching for games. But they ignore the fact they play more then me. I play faster then them ( you guess the reason) and they waste time on more hobbies too so the joke went on them . lol

Vita is great but current remote play is awful on PS3 using PSP or Vita. I use both direct wifi and internet wifi. Videos can stream really well. I loved watching HD videos on my PS3 through the PSP.

From what I understand they have built the Vita and PS4 to interact using their own super fast wifi type connection. This will combat the current lag found connecting to PS3.

I would not even try to play a PS1 game on my PSP/Vita through remote play. It is that bad. But I have great hope for the PS4/Vita remote play. Until I bought a Vita I never knew just how good it was.

That was kinda short though. I wanted more of a commercialized and polished reveal.

Like a 3 min youtube clip with higher video production that walks the viewer through the major stuff and some of the finer points.

Besides, that reveal thing was short and they needed to use wired version because of wireless noise interference in that auditorium.

I'm a vita owner and i want vita games. i buy ps3 or 4 games to play on the tv. Why are you guys so happy about being able to play ps4 games on the in know way helps the vita because the the vita needs vita games and good ones from sony themselves. Its there job to push hardware. Trying to see this as anything other then not having a tv tied up is pointless. It don't help the vita one bit. I hope sony has better plans for vita then remote play. It's a cool feature but don't make it out to be the vitas savour.

I think it's an amazing feature, being able to play your PS4 games away from home, at work or while out of town without having to take the console with you.

You know that with it being Remote Play you can do more than just play games right? You can view anything that's on your PS4 like videos and the apps. I remember the Psp was/is able to let you look through your PS Eye camera while away from home.

Personally I just like the idea of showing off my PS4 games to co-workers.

The Vita still has tons of games coming out for it anyway so what are you worried about?

I'll only agree with you on wanting Vita games. But the remote play feature is awesome. I'm leaving pretty soon for college and I'm taking all my things over there...but I shared all my things with my little brother who is in middle school right now. With this feature I can still share MY games on MY ps4 via remote play. Think about that for a second. While I'm not playing my ps4, my little brother can play it while I do something play xbox or watch tv or whatever.
FamilyGuy  +   908d ago
What a great idea!
I never even thought about that, takes game sharing to a whole new level. A friend, or in your case brother, that might not even have a PS4 could play all your PS4 games on his Vita through the internet.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea but it's not going be that omg vitas a must have. Great feature but not going matter much. Read some of these comments at the top it's like jesus has returned and the vita is saved. Only games can say the vita just like the WiiU.
_FantasmA_  +   908d ago
For me it will be cool because ever since December, I haven't really used my Vita that much. I love it and won't sell it but I have been dying for a multiplayer game. Killzone Mercenary will hopefully satisfy that itch, but being able to play Driveclub, Watchdogs, and Shadow Fall in my bed with the action right up in my face is something I look forward to.
Sci0n  +   909d ago
Will we be able to cross console party chat with people on the PS4 while using the PS Vita? That would be pretty cool if we could.

a dissagree isn't a answer to a question though so that logically makes no sense. Xbots and PC elitist usually are the stealth fighters all over Playstation news threads hating with comments or dissagreeing on everything. It makes me happy because I know they can't hate the playstation brand too much if they are taking the time to follow and read the articles. Deep down inside they love playstation and hate themselves for that lol.

Until they knock down the price, I don't care. I also don't care about an SKU post-launch including Vita as I will already have a console.

My question is:
Will we be able to use the new dualshock 4 controller while the streaming happens on the Vita?

I would rather use the dualshock 4 controller than the Vita controls. The dualshock 4 looks like it would be way more comfortable than the Vita's and you wouldn't need to remap the controls to the Vita.

Has anyone heard anything about this?
Khajiit86  +   909d ago
Im sure it would be highly possible since it is running thru the console.

I hope you are right. I think it would make it a lot better if while you are in the same location as the PS4 to have it set up this way.

Actually, so far i have not had issues with remote play. I live in San Francisco but spend most of my weekends in Monterey. I've been playing shadow of colossus via Remote play. There are lags while playing but nothing that I would considered a deal breaker.
I actually tried it once while i was in Hong Kong, It actually works.

My wife would not stop bugging me about helping her with Little big planet for the Vita. She wanted to get all the secrets in the game and it requires co-ops, every day she'll ask me, "do you have time today to help me with LBP?"
Sometime during my down time I would turn on my vita to help her. LOL
My point is, you should convince your friends to get a vita. Its a great handheld, but its even greater when you can connect to your friends on the go.
