The PlayStation 4 version of Rayman Legends will support PlayStation Vita Remote Play, but the handheld can't be used by a co-op player like the Wii U GamePad in that version of the platformer, according to developer Ubisoft Montpellier.
so Wii U still the best version then?
Gameplay wise, it's the most complete, so it could be said that it is.
seems like a missed opportunity since the Vita could mimick the Wii U gamepad easily. That being said I love the Wii U version.
@Neonridr I thought this game was out for the Vita ages ago,..? Demo seamed pretty cool and plays really amazingly on the Vita, with tapp and crap... I guess the steaming version from PS4 isn't supporting that,..(which is understandable,.. it is streaming PS4 version)
@Rexlex I doubt so, it is more like a fail from the dev. It has already been done on Knack at least to say. So it is not a technical limitation over any reason.
I have the WiiU and Vita versions and I think the Vita version is the best. Such an amazing and under-appreciated game.
Well we all know how complicated the controls for the 2D Rayman games are. The other versions must feel entirely incomplete without touchscreen gamepads. Run, jump...how do they manage to map it all?! /s A game you can tell yourself is superior on Wii U? Confirmed.
Yet more proof as if it was needed that wiiu is the best console
@Neonridr - I think the point of the story is to point out that the PS4 + Vita doesn't have the required low latency for Wii U type asymmetrical game mechanics, also as pointed out by RemotePlay only being able to reach max 30fps.
thanks for the clarification.
Also you need PlayStation Vita to even use these features which is 200$ so its not worth it. Wii U is still definitive version...
I would say that the Vita version is the best imo,.. because of dpad and looks mindblowing, and it is cheap.. It is like made for the handheld,..
WHAT! No 60fps?
It is streaming to Vita from PS4 so it is 30(like every other game),.. Vita version seams to be locked 60,.. with all the touch crap and looks mindbogglingly gorgeous ,.. @down baby-jedi ,..Well get the demo for vita version,.. I guess it is quite cheap now
WHAT! This sounds toooo good to be true! ; )
Thats only for remote play.
every game is on remote play is 30fps.
It makes sense since it originally was a Wii U exclusive so those functions can't exactly translate well on the ds4.
I have the Wii U version. You're honestly not missing much by not having a game pad. You're either looking at the game pad or the screen. You can't look at the screen and use the pad. I HATE that.
Actually I don't think the highlight is meant to be in single player. I enjoy the wii u version most because it has more content and because of the asymmetrical gameplay.
so releasing this is for the broadest possible benefit of ubisoft and its customers? right...
Ubisoft could do a little more with PS4 + Vita. I imagine they didn't want, otherwise one version would be much better than the other one.
