goddamn right
badz149  +   748d ago
why is there a need for a hint of Remote Play? Sony mandated ALL PS4 games to have remote play, right?
tracyllrkn  +   748d ago
Yeah, it's required.
RadioActiveTwinky  +   748d ago
Sony mandated on first party games and 3rd party exclusives maybe. The rest could of been optional.
HammadTheBeast  +   748d ago
Not sure how Battlefield would work with remote play, there would need to be 5-6 different control ses for all the vehicles, unless they made the jets and helis operable by gyroscope, which would be bad ass.
mkotechno  +   748d ago
It's technically not required, just happends, at OS level. No extra development needed.
extermin8or  +   748d ago
@RadioactiveTwinkey No Sony made it part of the certification process for all games. The only exceptions are camera/move based ones like to say a just dance style game etc.

That sucks. ;(

This is fantastic... Though, I'm strapped for cash and Killzone:Shadow Fall is my FPS at launch with BF following sometime next year.... After inFamous:Second Son

I liked! More similar to COD (crouch and melee)

I don't really like that r2/l2 replaced r1/L1 for aiming and shooting
quinten488  +   748d ago
You can change it to L1,R1.

R2 and L2 are perfect Northampton the ds4 has better triggers.
ion53  +   748d ago
I hate aiming with L2 but LOVE shooting with R2. I'd rather R1 + L1 than L2 and R2. But L1 and R2 is the best. I hope you can flip the buttons indapentantly.
bjmartynhak  +   748d ago
We have to hold the DS4 first.
It is the natural position in the X360 controller.

For sure you'll easily get used to it if it's not possible to change the layout.

Edit: sucks, I replied to myself, lol

All this news on PS4 BF4 sounds promising, considering getting it for PS4 instead of PC this year. Although I'll no longer be able to play at ultra settings the PS4 version still looks pretty solid!
jmc8888  +   748d ago
My thoughts exactly.
jmc8888  +   748d ago
Looks like a good button layout.
JimmyLmao  +   748d ago
I honestly don't know why people are thinking that it is only a possibility that remote play for Battlefield 4 will get supported.

It is a 100% requirement for any game that wants to get published on the PS4 to support remote play, unless it uses the PlayStation Camera. For a PS4 game to be published, it has to meet a certain set of standards and quality control.
grassyknoll  +   748d ago
I was just gonna say the same thing.
mav805  +   748d ago
..so was I, heh. Remote play is done by the PS4 hardware, the only thing developers need to do is supply a control scheme for the Vita.

Remote Play is really being taken to heart by a lot of people. Pretty excited about playing Resogun and possibly BF4 on my Vita. That would be really cool.
gaelic_laoch  +   748d ago
xKugo  +   748d ago
Another epic possibility.
Tooly  +   748d ago
i want R1 and L1
Detoxx  +   748d ago
Then change the button layout trough the settings screen damn.. Some people just whine about everything.
Tooly  +   748d ago
stfu aint nobody whinnig i just prefer R1 and R2 and who said that would be a choice...
cell989  +   748d ago
What if they don't support button mapping, that's my concern, I can't see my self playing FPS with the R2 for firing, it's not natural for me
Dante81  +   748d ago
They should allow custom button mapping in all games, as well as kb/m support.
Detoxx  +   748d ago
You talk like they removed R1 and L1 from the game lol
Tooly  +   748d ago
naw but mostlikely alot of shootin games might adopt r2 and l2 as the primary layout
quinten488  +   748d ago
PS gamers primarily use l1,R1 so of course there will be an option to switch.
xxxsiegezzz  +   748d ago
You haven't tried ds4.
younglj01  +   748d ago
64 players MP on the Vita?
staticdash22  +   748d ago
yes, there is a serate chip inside the ps4 that handles remote play. It's pretty seamless, and all that needs to be done is the control scheme.
Dante81  +   748d ago
This is ridiculous. You can use fight sticks for fighting games, wheels for driving games, but you can't use k/m for shooters. If it's about unfairness, then the first two shouldn't be supported as well.
Hicken  +   748d ago
You can still be competitive with the other methods of controls if you're using a controller, but KB/M allows far too much of an advantage.
Dante81  +   748d ago
Options are always a good thing,though.
Sadist3  +   748d ago
Yeah, remote play. Why the hell would I want to play my PS4 games on a small screen when I have my 55 inch to rock on?
pwnsause_returns  +   748d ago
Oh, I dont know...Maybe so when I'm outside my home, such as an airport, school, friends home, restraunt, coffee shop, i can keep playing MY DAMN GAME OUTSIDE OF MY HOUSE!

I dont know? why do you think i want to play it on a small screen?

i mean, doesnt that make sense to you?

Pretty sure R1L1/R2L2 and melee/crouch will be switchable. Nice to see touchpad is used to battlelog menus, I hope its slso works for customization/deployment menus.
The_Truth_24_7  +   748d ago
YES! No KB/M! Controllers FTW!
MidnytRain  +   747d ago
Said no one ever
franko  +   748d ago
This L2/R2 ads/shoot is retarded. We ads and shoot on L1/R1 since ps1. And that's the right way on any ps controller.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   748d ago
Playstation controllers aren't good for shooters.
Mr Tretton  +   748d ago
No controller is good for shooters.
teemo  +   748d ago
booo.... still no kb/m, i'll never play shooting games at console -_-
Sheikah  +   748d ago
Well, I'm excited.. For one :)

Particularly regarding the remote play features.
