Great use of technology, definitely will need to pick up a Vita in the future now.

Good thing I already own one :D
This stuff is AMAZING!!!!! Just need to make sure I have a good internet connection and I'm done :D

You can find them super cheap on ebay/craigslist. That's how I found my buddys and my own Vita in like new condition for around $120 each. They came with a few extras too. Just do some research.

I've said this many times but I will continue to do so. Just trying to spread the Vita love for anyone on the fence. :)

That's sick. I was never really interested in remote play but it does look good. Insignificant lag.

Please do! It needs more games!

but you cant play it on 3g/4g networks apparently, so whats the purpose unless someone else?

Lets say your workplace has a business class internet connection of 100mb/75mb. Who wouldn't want to take advantage of that. (during breaks of course)

No, hahah its locked to your home network that your ps4 is conencted to. so you need to bring your ps4 to work too lol... IM buying a ps4 but not buying it for remote play.

First of all, you asked what's the purpose if 3g/4g isn't capable. That's kind of a silly question. Sure you can't connect to it on the road or maybe when you're out camping. Still wifi is almost everywhere in our world at this point. I can think of a endless number of times and places that I could connect to my Vita away from home.

As for 3g/4g, you can't play it on the 3g Vita which totally makes sense. You can technically connect it to 4g via a mifi device or tethering it to your 4g phone. It probably wouldn't be playable though even if it actually connected because of the terrible latency associated with cellular networks.

Any standard home connection over 10mbps down should be fine (in theory) to connect your Vita back to your PS4 at home.

As you brought up though, one of the main concerns is your home network upload speed where your PS4 is physically located. You probably need at least a 10mbps upload speed on your home network for it to work and be playable.

That's the issue and that's also why Sony's official stance on remote play outside your home network is vague. Sadly not a lot of home connections have decent upload speeds. For example I'm currently getting the best I can get for $100 a month and it's even labeled "business" class. Even so while I have a 50mbps down speed, my up speed is only 3mbps...

So right now most home connections won't support remote play on the go. Hopefully that will change very very soon with ISPs like google fiber exploding outward. Even comcast and fios are offering larger upload speeds.
