Playing on PS4 and Vita via Remote Play at the Same Time Will Work With All Games With Couch Co-op

When Sony Computer Entertainment showcased two players enjoying co-op with knack on the PS4 and on the PS Vita via remote play at the same time, many wondered if that’s a feature limited to Knack or if it’ll work with other games.

According to Shuhei Yoshida, it will.

I can't wait for the Vita TV to come to North America. I am ready to pre-order the second they announce it's coming.

People keep telling me Vita TV will flop. Oh, I will be there to prove them wrong. That thing will sell millions. For $95 you have no excuse, sorry.

I guess i will wait for a ds4 version of it! that will be a great deal.. i will be able to finally play KZ Mercenary.. and get my second DS4! I by set. i an get the Vita tv with the ds4...

They said the Vita TV will ONLY work with NON touch games.

If that's true then Killzone Mercenary and a large majority of the Vita games won't work with it. There is actually a decent amount of touch based stuff in Mercenary.

they could probably sub a lot of that into button mapping. Still the hacking system is completely reliant on the touch screen function and is also a major function of the single player and multiplayer portion of the game.

Awesome just got awesomer!
I was thinking this was Knack only and developers controlled whether the feature would be added. This is a bonafide Vita and Vita Tv system seller.

*weeps* Thank you Sony :')

Just think about a game like CoD: No more split screen, you each get to play on your own tv.

Always a good feature to have.
I wonder if 4 player would also be supported?
If all Coop works, I'm guessing it will.

I've been watching this on a slow computer that lags and on a small screen, but can anyone tell me if the scene from both VITA and PS4 is static in that both player characters are always on the screen at the same time? thanks in advanced for your research :)

If Knack's design uses the basic remote-play (and NOT an API modification that is not able to be accessed by devs), than remote-play is proven to be cool tech for a variety of applications in co-op games between PS4 and VITA/TV.

FamilyGuy1846d ago

I don't think so, haven't seen the metal knack leave or wander far from the normal knack during the co-op play. That might just be knack related though because knack isn't "split screen" co-op.

On a split-screen co-op game like fighting, racing, shooters where you and your buddy can separate to tackle different objectives at the same time it'll likely work like that.

wait til the Vita TV comes out its gonna be awesome two Tv's :) co-op parties.

DEEBO1847d ago (Edited 1847d ago )

NOW that's is impressive!

l said it before i will say it again.remote play is the best feature coming with next generation.
my vita is ready!
one thing about sony is they will tweet you back about the ps4.
I just learn that you can do voice commands with the controller and you don't need to install you're games,you just need free space.
say call of duty is 47gigs but it won't take 47gigs to run the just need the space to be free on the harddrive.

So is mine! I'll admit I haven't played my Vita in a while, but that's about to all change! My Vita has just been waiting for its Father to get home. He'll be home on leave November 15, 2013.

DEEBO1847d ago

This should help sale the vita.if they show some commercials with the right pitch.

There is a lot of games with local co-op
lego marvel
call of duty
This could be massive!

Mikelarry1847d ago

the days of controller smashing are gone, now you can just get your buddy to pass that difficult boss battle that made you go premature bald.

Ripsta7th1847d ago

Wouldnt you smash your vita instead

Mikelarry1847d ago (Edited 1847d ago )

its not only going to be a feature of the vita only, sony said they are working on it to work via one of the features of gaikai.

i will try find the link for the above
