Some minor details about the PS4 you may be interested in.
"Integration Between PS4 And Smartphone Explained, Addditional Detail About Streaming Revealed" Yeah this is gonna be a good read! *Reads description* "Some minor details about the PS4 you may be interested in" Damnit..
If you have a smartphone and if you plan to buy a PS4 game using that, it will automatically wake up the PS4 up and start downloading the game. After that the PS4 goes back to sleep state. This is one awesome feature.
It is. Dont get me wrong But with the article headline I expected tons of information lol
i agree with you Rashid! i have seen this feature on PS4 UI video where the girl downloads KZ from her phone and i think the title is precise enough since we didn't know if DL will only happen during PS+ scheduled time or everytime there is something in queue.
"Addditional" it added so much, that it even gave a free "d" away.
OMG it's a 3D title.
Sony did not do much with the psn app this gen! in fact the iso psn app terrible.
i thought the PSN app was only in EU? I think the new PSN app for next gen will be alot better. I hate having to wait till i get home from work in order to start my downloads an browse the store for a bit. This way all my downloads should be completed before i get home and i'll be ready to game.
Pretty obvious really...
Nothing really new here. Just talks about how your smartphone can wake up the PS4 when you buy a game online for it. Then it turns off after it is done downloading it. Also the obvious point that you can't stream one game to the Vita and play a second game on the PS4 at the same time. What I wish Sony would do is give us a video detailing exactly how we would start the streaming to the vita. Specifically show us how it looks on both systems via the UI.
Um, They already showed that, at least on 2 separate occasions. & it looks good, barely notice a difference.
I only saw the one time during the gamescom conference and it just switched from the one guy playing on PS4 straight into the PS Vita. It didn't show how he connected it was just connected. Do you have a link to anything that might show it differently?
No, not quite. But yeah, one of the times I had in mind was the Aug. 21th conference. Another time was a brief image a few months ago just advertising that it would be able to stream PS4 games. As for connections, most likely you will have to sync the Vita with the PS4, maybe a one-time wire connection or completely through bluetooth or wi-fi, most likely wi-fi.
What I would like to know is a little more detailed, like; Ok, if you are steaming a game on the Vita, can someone still play a separate campaign (same game) on the console? That would be sexy. Also, yes, you can wake the PS4 for a purchased download, but will it do the same for timed trails, demos, etc. & finally, does the app drop along with the system or will be have to wait? They are doing great with the store, so it should'nt be a hassle to get the app up & popping. I can see it now; I'm outdoors, get on PSN, dump stuff into my cart, download, then let my baby return to rest. ¦^>
Judging from the Gamescom footage the PS Vita is used in the same way as the Wii U gamepad, you just take exactly what you was playing on the TV and transport it to the Vita. So no, you wouldn't be able to have one person playing one part of the game on PS4 while another plays a different part on Vita.
While this is awesome, and I will probably get myself in trouble with this feature (being that I tend to be an impulse buyer)...
Can't wait for my PS4 ><
I hope that wake up and download from phone feature works for all PSN Store content, not just purchasing games. What I'm strangely interested in is what browser the PS4 will use. I really hope they abandon their own Sony built efforts and adopt Chrome. The track pad would actually make browsing on the TV really effective. It would also be cool to be able to switch to the browser quickly at any time for people like my self trying using a site for collectible locations.
anyone hear anything about ps app coming for windows phone? i dont want android botnet phone.
I'm with you in the minority.. I love wp8 and I'm never switching for as long as it is supported. I think we will have to wait a while for this on our mobile OS of choice though.
As awsome that would be i doubt msoft would allow their os to be used for ps4 lol
I'm glad that they are adding all these cool features, it's only a matter of time before Xbox copies them though..
Xbox already has everything in place. I don't game on Xbox anymore, but my live acct is synced with my wp8 device. Everything is pretty seamless between live, Xbox, wp8 and w8. MS has finally achieved what they've been trying to perfect for years. Wouldn't be anything at all for them to add remote downloading to their store.
