Sony's loved Shuhei Yoshida has revealed Remote Play for Battlefield 4 is expected to work on day of the Playstation 4 launch.
Call of Duty: Ghosts, now Battlefield 4 remote play with Vita confirmed. Now's the best time to get Sony's shiny handheld.
Holy ****! Really? I just got a VITA and this is MEGATON. That's it....PS4 is my console of choice now.
What rez is the vita?
Your thoughts are the same as mine :P Vita is gonna make sell PS4 ahah that's awsome!
It's quite an incentive. There aren't many if any battlefield quality games playable on a handheld. I was always getting a ps4 but this kind of thing makes a great argument for getting a vita. I've been collecting games on PSPlus so buying one means an instant games library. Thrust. Whatever it is, Res won't matter too much on such a small screen.
@Thrust The 16/9 screen essentially makes it 1080p for example: 1920 / 1080 = 1.7 1280 / 720 = 1.7 16 / 9 = 1.7 Are all the same, so yes, the PS Vita will be in a higher resolution than the XOX. -Greatness awaits
@thrust it was confirmed that games will be streamed at 720p to vita and vita tv
Let me add to the res...it's still rendered in 1080 on the "server" (=PS4), encoded (explicit HW encoder) and "downsampled" (=decoded) to 960x544 (qHD) basically giving you an additional 2xMSAA on a 5" screen.
You can play that ANYWHERE too. I'll be playing this on my camping trip.
^ You'll more than likely need at least a 15mbps upload connection on your internet that your PS4 is connected to in order to remote play it on the Vita OUTSIDE your LAN. That's a big problem for the large majority of current US internet users. For example, I currently pay $100 a month for the best connection I can get. Even that is a 50mbps down and 3mbps up. Not anywhere near enough. Google fiber (or just fiber ISPs in general) need to hurry up and spread to more cities.
call of doodie redefined
Oh GOD this is driving me nuts. As I said in two previous threads a while back: Are we going to get an article on every God damn PS4 game? This isn't news people. The PS4 has hardware dedicated to this and the Vita was designed with this in mind. IT JUST WORKS. The only games it won't work with are games that use the camera or the MOVE. Every single PS4 games works with remote.
I 2nd that
"Every single PS4 games works with remote." Almost all of them. For example Yoshida confirmed that move games won't work with remote play. Nexus 7 2013
Yeah. Sony said that support is there by default. It's just up to the developers to figure out a control scheme that's better than some standard that Sony has set up. I'm assuming they made it very simple for devs, too.
War Thunder won't support Remote Play for now. I don't know why and I hope it's just an exception.
Yes, but 99% of PS4 games WILL support the Vita. Here's a list of games for the PS4. Do we really want an article for every single one? http://www.gamepur.com/file... That's just the start and it doesn't include multiplatform games (for consoles). @Brix90: Yeah, perhaps I'm looking at it too subjectively.
I think people were just skeptical not about Sony but developers not coming through on remote play but glad to see people the didn't know about this get excited lol
I don't know why this is news...its been stated that the remote play function is built into the ps4.....therefore the ps3 where developers had to support the function and use some pf their already limited resources to do it never really happened. EVERY non ps camera or 3rd party peripheral based game can be played via remote play.
they kinda have to include remote play support otherwise they can't publish, unless the game uses the PlayStation Camera... games gotta pass quality control measures! Sony just want's the best for us! ya know? #4ThePlayers n all =P
I know that every game is supposed to include remote play, hopefully it's true and there's not a catch. However, I'm more worried about the real implementation the games will have, specially third parties. They could include Remote Play (because maybe it really is mandatory) but how will they actually configure the button layout? Will they take time to actually make it work well in the PS Vita?
it is actually a requirement. games have to pass quality control to be able to get published... this includes things such as trophy support, remote play support, etc. and it isn't a burden on the the developers, the PS4 hardware handles remote play all by itself, all that developers have to do is add in vita button support, which isnt hard and doesnt take long. it is as simple as mapping the functions to different buttons.
The vita already has a way for you to manually configure the buttons , the screen, and the rear touchpad any way you want it.
I think Sony should've thought this better by providing a sophisticated remap and customize tool when a game is being Remote Played. There will also be default setups to choose from for those who just wants to jump on it asap. I don't think it gets much better than that unless 3rd Parties are sure to give effort for VITA controls AKA games like Dragon Age: Inquisition allows you to map hotkeys/skills on the touch screen.
Wow we can now all play bf4 on the toilet
Every single one of your comments is you trolling PS4 articles. Why? This is brilliant news, being able to play BF4 (and many other games that are on PS4) on your vita is a major selling point for some people, and you try to sarcastically downplay it? Sigh.
I got excited when he said play on the toilet. WHO WOULDN'T LOVE THAT?
I'll be playing from work!! I can see many getting fired cuz of this feature lol
Holy balls me too seeing as how I got WiFi at work. Damn it looks like I'm getting the PS4 version afterall.
I wouldnt expect to get good results over wifi like that, at home within the network sure, but i still cant picture it working under your conditions Heres hoping though, i would love to see it, but i shant get my hopes up. I just picture it having major input lag just like it is on remote play now We will see though would be great
It'll be worth it!
Damm, lucky you. Killing some time here on N4G is the maximum I can get at work.
It works great if you get a solid signal. I've tried it with Ico and SoTC on PS3 and it works OK and the wifi at work kinda sucks and speeds are a joke. Tried it at a friends house and the difference was very noticeable as the connection and speed is a lot better than any public place. Keep in mind that the PS4 will handle this in a different way that is supposed to optimize the experience. At least for single player modes it will be great!! I'm feeling good about this. This to me is the PS4 best feature!
That's stupid. We can actually play it in the (battle) fields.
Orrrrrrr if someone wants to watch TV, you can comfortably say "Ok my loving wife and children, you may use the television." *turns on Vita, kicks back on couch* Yeahhhhhh........ The toilet is a plus too.
Battlefield on the bog Marketing genius
Or I can lay down on my bed and play AC4 via remote play. I'm gonna do it when I'm to lazy to sit in my chair. Nexus 7 2013
Yes on the toilet, and that is a plus with a game like BF since most of the time you will be playing MP, and we all know there is no pause, so why lost your killstreak? just grab your vita and to the toliet!!
Does this mean 64 players being killed on the toilet?
LOL! It seems that the attempt at trolling backfired for pascalini whoeveritwas. Greatness awaits! My turd is ready! Toilet! Toilet! Toilet!
For what I understood, the devs only have to map the missing buttons on the Vita. Doesn't seems to require a lot of work. All the streaming stuff is built in in the PS4. Awesome!
This is true. The PS4 does all of the heavy lifting. The Vita just receives the signal and provides the input. So, devs just have to map a few controls.
I am a grown man but I have just shed a tear of joy! No more arguments over the TV and no more needing to drop out of a game when I need to take a dump!!!!!
what!!!!! god dammit i have to get a vita for christmas now.
glad my loving wife got me a vita for christmas last year. I am typing this message from my vita, its a absolute beast of a device you guys will see once you get one.
Just don't buy the one in Sci0n's avatar. Nope, I'm never going to let it go. Haha :)
lol yea pass on cod decrappified if you can.
Your wife got you a vita? hell even I love your wife now.
@Themba76 You really should, and not only just for that. If you have PS+ you already have games for free like the amazing games, Uncharted GA and Gravity Rush. It's such an awesome system, you should support it, and you will never be disappointed. :)
I totally forgot about this feature (How I did.. I do not know).. this just makes me even more excited.
Imagine playing a full 64-player Conquest Large on Paracel Storm while taking a dump. Glorious.
No longer do I have to say "BRB, my bro has blown up the living room"!!!!!
Of course it supports remote play. Remote play is hardware based. The only issue for remote play is controls, so developers have to map the controls to the vita (which cannot be done with the camera). Other than some issue like that, all of the games will support remote play.
Like I wrote in a comment above. Will third party developers really support Remote Play and configure a GOOD control layout? We'll have to see, but I expect some that won't care and leave some kind of default configuration, instead of really optimize it for PS Vita.
Killzone has good control layouts for VITA. Third party will probably copy that.
Nothing like dropping some bombs on the battlefield while dropping your own in the teh toilet ;).
Just make sure any carpet bombing is left in the game.
lol yea leave the carpet bombings to the pets or airial assaults in the games.
Already armed with Move controllers and a Vita I feel like Charlie Sheen right about now WINNING!
It sounds amazing but all he said was "I expect so". Just to be safe, I wouldn't celebrate just yet in case it didn't work day one. But if it does, I'll be getting a vita like everyone else. :D Hurry up 11/15!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can vita be controlled with the ds4?
Read the article.
thats great to the 12 people in the world who own a vita
Well then, that'll be 12 people to enjoy the remote play feature.
I'm just thinking that it could have some serious input lag, hopefully it runs smooth but I can't see it to be honest.
NIce playing bf4 and killzone shadow fall on my vita will be amazing
Can you use the Vita, for Commander mode?
This news just made me screamed in tears
Yes Finally, battlefield anytime. Maybe I won't need a [email protected]@ bucket.
