Now if they could just come up with a bundle before Christmas. Let the Vita piggy back on all this major success the PS4 is having! More so when they already work together so well.

Yea like M$ is forcing Kinect, Sony should encourage people to use the PS Vita some more. That's fair play. A good way to do it is bundling it and informing people about Remote Play.

Personally I would like to purchase a Vita but I will wait for a bigger screen sooner or later it'll happen, or PS Vita 2.0... It has to happen...

EDIT: The reason why I wanna wait for a redesign is because the Vita is already 1 year and 1/2, so I don't wanna buy it now and couple months later a redesigned Vita surfaces. I don't want that to bite me in the a$$.

If vita 2.0 does ever come out it won't rival the original in terms of build quality. 2.0 will use cheaper parts which brings down the price but also will bring down the build quality.

I would get a vita now. I am not knocking the device at all but it needs all the support it can get right now.

I wonder if people truly understand how remarkable this technology is. Maybe I'm slow, but I just recently started to understand that through the Gaikai tech,we'll be actually playing the PS4 on the VITA and not a scaled down VITA version of the game. I wonder though, in order to save your progress, will we need to be connected to WIFI so the game can save on our accounts?

There's a big difference between enforcing and encouraging, one is unfriendly consumer policy, the other is practical business opportunity. And I would say fair play to Sony if they do well with the Vita now because it was manufactured with mostly PS4 integration in mind.

ZBlacktt1613d ago (Edited 1613d ago )

The story is about how well the PS4 and Vita work together. So why not make it a option? No one says you have to buy a bundle.....

" I wonder though, in order to save your progress, will we need to be connected to WIFI so the game can save on our accounts?"

All the Vita is doing is streaming from Gaikai or the PS4, in essence you are still playing on the PS4 but with Vita as your controller(same way the Wii U tablet controller works). The PS4 will still be connected to the internet for save games.

I have been using the Vita to play games like Ico and SOTC via remote play on my PS3.
Vita is the best purchase i have ever made recently, now that Sony have announced tons more games for it, it can only get better!

That's exactly the contrast I am trying to make with my comment.

M$ is forcing Kinect upon you, Sony should encourage you to use the Vita by bundling it and letting consumers know about Remote Play.

That's fair play, good play on Sony's part.

IDK why I'm getting disagrees (don't really care but LOL), if Sony announces a PS Vita bundle I'd drop $100 more and get the bundle instantly.

As far as "companion devices" are concerned this is a really nice piece of kit for $200, unlike people claiming Kinect 2.0 to be "worth $150".

Vita is a fully functioning, hand-held games console on its own. It just has the added functionality of being able to remote play (some) PS3 and (basically all) PS4 games.

It'll be able to play any (PS1,2,3 or 4) game once Gaikai is in full force.
It currently works through both local area connection wifi and through the internet.

I'm glad its functionality is at a hardware level now. I was excited about remote play ever since the first psp released so it's nice to know it'll be fully supported, whether the game devs want it to or not, this time around. They don't have to do anything extra to get their games running on it which makes this feature the way it should have been from the start.

Vita IS our Kinect (literally connect). Or at least Sony's version of innovation the way I see it. They did say they wanted change the way we play...

Cirehpsa1613d ago

a Redesign won't feature a bigger screen, the psp's never done it and infact in the case of the PSP go they made it smaller. They'll be keeping the resolution the same, the only thing the remodel could have added is a little more ram or CPU power, although I'm going to doubt that they will for now.

yep they can kill 2 birds with one stone.

DeadlyFire1613d ago

Looks like Gaikai software is in the PS4 streaming wirelessly to the Vita. Sounds cool to me.

Donnieboi1613d ago

Man I can't wait to play Battlefield 4 on my vita via remote play while siphoning some much appreciated bandwidth from my school's library!


ugh, if only the 500 dollar ps4 + vita rumors were true!!!

still getting it even at 199, but i mean a ps3 bundle would have just been WOW. :O


WOOOOOOOOOOOOW did i really just say "ps3 bundle"? that combination of key presses havent even come out of my comp for so many months now. how could i have even made that mistake? PS4* PS4* PS4 PS4*


Gster1613d ago

I really think Sony would be hard pressed to make a profit on a $100 vita, if that was the case they'd be giving them away.

kneon1613d ago

But they don't need to make a profit on the Vita just as long as they make a profit on the whole bundle.

iceman061613d ago

They were hard pressed to make a profit even at $250, thus why the memory is more expensive. Just as every console before it, it's a matter of balancing losses and potential profit from other sources (peripherals, games, services, etc.).

Kryptonite42O1613d ago

This is great news.. if they could package it in a bundle with the PS4. Otherwise I can't justify spending the money on the Vita.. the only real situation I could see myself using it, is if Im in an intense game and I have to take a $h*T. lol gaming while on the throne baby! anybody? lol

mkis0071613d ago (Edited 1613d ago )

I have to imagine that when more people start to realize the remote play possibilities; the Vita is going to be flying off the shelves. At $200 It is an amazingly valued piece of tech when put up next to the 3DS XL at the same price (hardware wise).
