Playing PS4 games with PS Vita TV is a lagless, slightly compressed experience

GamesRadar - Sony continued to shine a spotlight on PS Vita TV during its Tokyo Game Show keynote, talking up the little device's ability to stream Vita, PS3, and PS4 games. But how they would look, and--more importantly--how they would play, was yet to be known. As soon as the show floor opened we made a beeline to Sony's booth, and after getting hands-on with the hardware we left with mixed opinions. (PS Vita, Tag Invalid, Tech)

I'll just stick with playing PS4 games on the PS4 then.

Good luck doing that on the go, which is the WHOLE FREAKIN POINT.

>implying that I'm planning on doing that

And where does it say that I can play it on the go? All I see is playing it on a different TV.

Um... you can Remote Play anywhere via the internet. Though in that case I'd guess the experience is far from "lagless."

It will be interesting to see the "Remote Play via internet" tests.

And if you're using a Vita (instead of VitaTV), you could have that "lagless" experience anywhere in the wireless range of your PS4, without a TV.

I'm interested in this tech... I hope it comes to the US.

Think the question with the VTV is it just for house, next room use, or anywhere with online.

And then there's the question that if it can use Genki for PS3 BC, what about PS4? If so then the VTV could be the only console you'd need.

Still have to see it. One thing for a demo at a convention center, and another in the real world with the worst connection.

You'll be able to take this on holiday, plug it into any TV and stream your PS4 content via cable or Wi-Fi. This is a game changer without a doubt.

Gaikai* You been playing too much Saint Rows?

"One thing for a demo at a convention center, and another in the real world with the worst connection."

If you have a terrible connection using remote play simply isn't for you. If you didn't notice even Sony said "good bandwidth" is important. It won't be necessary for inside your home so to say but if you plan on using remote play outside of your home, then having good internet is important.

You can't expect to use remote play well if you know you have really slow internet. Remote play works perfectly, you having bad internet has nothing to do with how it works, as it works fine on internet that supports such usages.

Exactly I want to hear real world tests on a vita and not the vita tv. I wonder if all haiku games will be compressed like this

Also:

"Remote Play functionality was similarly impressive. There was zero perceptible lag between PlayStation 4 on-screen action and what we were inputting on the Vita. The same sentiment applies to input directly on the Vita for the PS4 game we were playing: no lag, as if Knack were a game being played locally on the Vita. How this will play out with your own home WiFi is another question altogether, which we'll test more thoroughly when we get PlayStation 4 review units in the coming weeks. As of right now, it more than stands up to NVIDIA's Shield. If anything, it bests the Shield's streaming performance with zero hitches while we played."

Video of Engadget's Remote Play session:

Somebody on GAF slowed down the video to 1fps. It looks like there's a 2-3 frame lag from what comes up on the TV vs what's displayed on the Vita (Knack is 30fps). Pretty negligible.
