Check Out Knack Played on PS4 and PS Vita at the Same Time via Remote Play: “Couch Co-op Redefined”

During the Sony Computer Entertainment conference at the Brazil Game Show there was a nice demonstration of the power of remote play between PS4 and PlayStation Vita. (Knack, PS Vita, PS4)

Second screen two player co-op is an awesome inclusion. I really hope more games implement it.

Now imagine owning a PS Vita TV and a co-op game on two separate tvs without having to own two PS4s.... Yeah, I REALLY hope more games include this form of co-op.
My brother who is in another state could play some co-op games with me without even owning the game or the PS4 itself. All he'd need is a $100 Vita Tv.

MY GOD...look at it! it looks absolutely gorgeous on the Vita! Portable PS4 is no joke, it runs like a dream!

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   760d ago

Yup, made the Vita that much more worth it!

Also I wasn't so interested in this game (probably getting it later or checking out when it would innevitably came into PS Plus) but this short demonstration gave me a much nicer old Crash vibe!

I hope they show more of it, if there are more levels like that along with those grow/shrink lab puzzles I'm buying it on launch. Looks like it will be great to play on Vita (maybe even more than on PS4, not that something is wrong on PS4 or anything like that, it just looks like the kind of thing I would enjoy much more on a portable).

Abriael  +   761d ago

Kingthrash360  +   761d ago

I won't comment, so long as you swear to never turn that thing in for resell.

“Couch Co-op Redefined” really? Nintendo had redefined co-op play before anyone with the Wii U, and even before that with the Gameboy advance and the gamecube. So this is by no means a refinement in co-op couch play.
G20WLY  +   761d ago
What if you're on a couch in another house and still playing co-op? ;P
duducus  +   761d ago
Then it really isn't couch Co-op, if the guy isn't there... :P

Hey Abriael, did you just get an account on neogaf? Trying to find an email that would work, but I'm not allowed to use my work email.

@gusgusjr: been a while, just used my work mail.

Oh what a tortured soul
colonel179  +   761d ago
But this can be done while being somewhere else, not just at home like the Wii U. Granted, don't know if it will be supported at launch, but from what I have read, you can play at your house with your PS4, while a family member or friend can play on the Vita at another place/city, etc.

Sony confirmed remote play via internet,not just home network, but my guess is that with co-op it still applies.
Moncole  +   761d ago
It will be very laggy when you do it somewhere else. Befor you go on saying how they show the feature live think of this. They were both using the same internet and the servers weren't busy. Now if you are at work and your PS4 is at home streaming Killzone SF will be hard. People will be uaing the servers, both devices will be under different internet connections and you will need to stream a big game. Same thing will be with Gaikai
TomShoe  +   761d ago
LMAO! Looks like someone's just jelly.
cell989  +   761d ago
it is a refinement, the Vita allows coop play, from anywhere theres a WiFi connection
JoGam  +   761d ago
It aint that deep dude. Have a seat!
lawlesdweller  +   761d ago
Yeah until you go out of the room as we dont all live in a house made of Wood as bricks and alittle issue called distance stops this and yes i have both consoles and yes a PSVita and all the other things too
Angels3785  +   761d ago
While I agree with your name....I don't agree with your comment
tubers  +   761d ago
It's an overstatement. Always need to have "that" kind of PR.
ShinMaster  +   761d ago
So you're saying you could display and play almost every GameCube game on the GBA and play from anywhere in the world on the Wii U's Gamepad?

Didn't think so.
webeblazing  +   761d ago
didn't I call this, and everyone bashed me because I said they re going to use vita as a controller for games. this is the start.
Xsilver  +   761d ago
Now I'm pretty sure you can also do this with the Vita TV too that means i can have 2 Tv's for full screen co-op O.O Lets just say I'm veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy excited for Remote Play.
colonel179  +   761d ago
I hope it's implemented well, and it's supported as it should. I played LAIR using remote play on the PSP and it worked great. We all know that as long as Sony support the feature (which is supposed to be in every PS4 game), we will get great and tight controls for the Vita. The issue will come from third parties which will most likely rush (or shoehorn) button layout support for the Vita. Hell, I'm not even sure third parties will support the DS4 touchpad as it should, so expecting proper implementation of remote play, will be a stretch.
DEEBO  +   761d ago
best feature is remote play to me.
MrTimesplitters  +   761d ago
Your best feature is something Nintendo Invented?
TongkatAli  +   761d ago
Yeah, but Sony is doing it better from what it looks. Thanks to Nintendo for being a pioneer.
nikrel  +   761d ago
i hope there is minimal lag with this..
Clover904  +   761d ago
at 0:13 "no latency"

The PS4 was built from the ground up with the Vita and Remote Play in mind.
MrTimesplitters  +   760d ago
I highly doubt that there is 0 latency considering remote play is being used over WI-FI. But I guess we just have to wait and see.
mushroomwig  +   761d ago
You can see for yourself there is no visible lag.
sypher  +   761d ago
Seems that instead of using the same CPU that is handling all the computations for the game like they did with the ps3's remote play. They are using a separate chip whose sole purpose is handling remote play.

one of the best features for PS4/Vita sets it apart from the competition, a very unique yet very useful feature. Ive upgraded the internet connection at my job to 20MBS to make sure I can remote play properly
LEOPARD1030  +   761d ago
Amazing !
BTBuck1  +   761d ago
will there be a loss in graphical fidelity like there was with the PSP remote play? It looked pretty poor on PSP... Hope this is flawless like it is on wiiU.. if so then this is an awesome feature!
ruefrak  +   761d ago
This means I won't need to buy a second controller to play co-op Knack with my daughter. Just saved $60.
Clover904  +   761d ago
haha, right!

The PS4 is just oozing with value. No need for a second controller with Knack, multiple free-to-play games, two indie titles for free at launch (Resogun, Contrast) with Drive Club PS Plus Edition to follow. I'm loving what Sony is doing with the PlayStation brand.

SynestheticRoar  +   761d ago
This will help me considerably, until I can purchase another controller.
DEEBO  +   761d ago
Yeah i have wiiu too and the signal does not go that far.
plus the vita will work outside of the house.
HighResHero  +   761d ago
That and the Vita has a better image quality (at least oLED model) and touchscreen, along with many other things, like being used as a stand alone gaming unit, etc.

Yeah sony took it a few steps farther then nintendo with the remote play.
TheFutureIsBlue  +   761d ago
This is awesome and all, but holy crap that sound and music. It really does sound like the old ps1 games =).
nevin1  +   761d ago
Will they ever show other games using remote play?
TheGrimReaper0011  +   761d ago
Well, they showed assassin's creed 4
Remote play will be forced on any game now, except those that use the camera
All other games will have remote play
It would be cool to see Battlefield 4 or killzone on that thing
If it really works smoothly, it will def be a selling point for me
MasterCornholio  +   761d ago
If you watch the TGS demo of Deep Down, one of the players was using a Vita to play this game with the others.

TristanPR77  +   761d ago
Amazing feature. I hope to see talented developers designing cool stuff with this.
MasterCornholio  +   761d ago
Wow that's neat.

paul-p1988  +   761d ago
Cannot wait for the PS4, and remote play more so. I can't wait for the 'uh, Vita doesn't have teh gmez!!!" comments again.

"My Vita can play every PS4 game... on top of PS1/PSP and Vita games... can your console do that? There's the door, please use it!"
HighResHero  +   761d ago
hahahha them = owned for certain
Themba76  +   760d ago
