What a great indicator of the badassery to come. Remote play standardization is next gen.
Requesting permission to use badassery in my everyday conversations
Ha. I cannot rightfully give permission for something which I neither invented nor own. The word has been around. I'm pretty sure anyway.
It is badass indeed and I will not excuse lazy devs for not including the feature in their games or even take too long to.
He is not wrong^ Badassery and perving are my two favorite words
This is awesome. The fact that it takes so little time and very minimal resources to implement remote play just reassures to me that most games will have remote play. Even the devs of Blacklight Retribution got it running on the Vita in a day... https://twitter.com/Gerritz...
Um, Wii U has had this feature since it's release. I never understand why Nintendo's ideas are considered gimmicks yet when Sony does the same thing it's considered an innovation. -_- That being said, this is a pretty cool feature although i'm still not convinced enough to buy a vita.
There is a difference though. With the WiiU you have to be a certain distance. With the Vita, you can be anywhere with a Wifi signal.. ( much better IMO )
The PSP had remote play way before the WI U released (although it didn't work very well it was still first). Edit: here's the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Well i dont consider it really an innovation either way . it's nice that's all . I'm just annoyed Nintendo would push it as a whole different gaming experience at the expense of directly competing with the other twos . Even more so annoyed when in the end in most games it ends up just being a secondary map and inventory screens for less pretty and tech intensive titles (compared to the ps4/xb1 i mean) . So yeah it is a gimmick , when i can do the same for say a Fifa , with better graphs and perf on ps4 and XB1 with a tab or the vita PS : Hell nothing prevented some sort of beefy WII2 + 3ds touch control combo instead . What would even be lost in the process ? I took a WiiU forced by a few of its (late) upcoming exclusives .. not at all what i still perceive as gimmicks
The PSP says hi!
Been on N4G for years now, I can´t recall anyone saying Nintendos remote function was a gimmick...anyway Nintendo did not come up with it first... It was already implemented for the PSP/PS3...I was playing Blazblue through my PS3 to my PSP in 2010.
Yup, no excuse unless the game uses camera or something odd which would be obvious.
if its that simple to implement and it works as well as everyone has been saying this is a truly unique next gen feature. I got my vita now if only my ps4 could be here now ... http://ps4daily.com/2013/10...
my ps4 is better be built to last , Vita + Tv add on , can't wait ! :D
Shows how PS4 and Vita work so easy together! I definitely love this feature. I need to buy a new charger my cat chewed it up. O_o
Hell yeah that's awesome PS4/Vita here i come.
Now nobody else has an excuse. My Vita's gonna see a lot more action soon...
Best feature period!
That's great :).
Vita has just been given a second chance :)
2 day to implement new and exiting features onto the remote play hopefully for some devs
