I would love to have some second screen games on the PS4. Are there any? I was under the impression that Battlefield had second screen functionality, but when I started it up the other day, I realized it didn't. I think it's a really cool idea. Maybe have a players vital info on the second screen, use it as a rearview mirror in racing games, a chat interface in parties while playing games, a game map that lets you touch it to fast travel or gives you information about an area when you touch the screen and Wii U like second player functionality. There are so many possibilities that would add to already stellar gameplay.

I just hope developers start taking advantage of it and all it could offer the gaming experience.

Yeah Battlefield has the commander mode , it works ok but can be hard to find a game sometimes

I properly tested the PS4/Vita remote play with Outlast the other day and I was really impressed, virtually no input lag. An incredibly impressive feature.

I love remote play. I use it all the time and it works really great almost as if the game was running on vita itself. Only game I can't remote play on is BF4 as it seems just a bit to much lag on conquest. Its playable but just not worth it when AC4, Tomb Raider, Resogun,NFS work so damn well.

Its one reason why i chose a wii u, actually.
All the conveniences and innovative potential of a touch screen, and it doesn't sacrifice any of the normal buttons (that core gamers have come to expect)by trying to replace them with touch screen buttons.
Off-TV play is also a snap; 100% latency-free, lag-free response time.
The controller is also light despite its size (the screens size is also better for my eyes since its so big), and the grip is uber-comfy.
Best controller on the market,imo, even if it does look a bit strange compared to a smaller controller.
I only wish more games supported it properly.
