i think we all saw this coming

this biggest thing they didnt really clarify though

is if you have to use a controller for your pc?

still really cool and we'll see how bad the latency is.

QuickTime

I believe if you want to play your Xbox games on PC you need your controller. Also Phil was playing/streaming forza on his surface playing with an Xbox one controller.

and he did state at home not from anywhere .

Gamer19821033d ago

Playing elsewhere doesn't work well anyway as most found out on there Vita. Though MS are slowly playing catchup with Sony this gen I reckon MS fans hoping for shareplay next.

aceitman1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

@gamer I play my ps4 from my vita while its not perfect all the time it does a great job.

Manic20141033d ago

Well he stated the Games on the Xbox App, were from his home console. So i'm guessing its going to be from anywhere you have a good internet connection.

FriedGoat1033d ago

What's wrong with you're connection? I use my vita/PS4 over the net from work and the lag is so minimal. Remote play for vita truly is a next gen feature.

@Gamer

I use my Vita(and PSP before that) quite a bit for streaming games from my home console while I'm away.

The only time I really have problems is when the wi-fi at my location is crappy. Other than that it works just fine outside a few lag hiccups once in a while.

I'm sure the same concept will work just fine for MS as well if they allow it to be used over the internet and not just on local wi-fi. MS is no stranger to remote access to it's applications. They were one of the first to implement it on a system wide level in Windows 95 in fact.

It is a pointless feature I dont see why I would want to stream Xbox games to my PC Now if you could stream PC games to your Xbox One that would be something

RzaDaRazor1033d ago

You could hook your surface or phone up to your tv in another room that doesn't have an xbox and keep playing, or play while you're dropping a deuce.

uth111033d ago

Not pointless.

If your Xbox is on a TV that is shared with other people in your household, and they are watching TV, you can still play Xbox via streaming.

ShadowWolf7121033d ago

@uth11

So basically the big announcement is Remote Play.

...not exactly what n4g folk hyped it to be, but cool.

Welcome to the party Negative Nancy.

rainslacker1033d ago

I thought the same thing when Sony announced their remote play features on the PSP/PS3. I thought, why would I want to do that when I could just play on my console?

But over time, I found that a nice feature to have became a feature worth having. It may not be something you use all the time, but it is one of those things that you can find an application for in many situations which you may not realize at first glance.

@rainslacker

The difference is I can take my vita with me my PC is at home If I had a Xbone it would be at home with my PC I dont see the point

rainslacker1033d ago

Surely streaming just to PC on local Wi-Fi isn't as robust as Sony's implementation, but that's not to say that it won't get there eventually.

My point is that it's one of those features you don't always see a use for until you actually find a use for it.

I quite want the nitty gritty details, such as what resolution and framerate you can stream, and what kinda sound. The PS4 has hardware dedicated to it's streaming functions, but only does 720p. As far as we know the Xbox has no such dedicated hardware.

Steam home streaming goes right up to 4k without dedicated hardware though, so who knows!

Pretty intriguing. Lag will certainly be the issue, as always.

Software_Lover1033d ago

It's not an issue on steam.

DragoonsScaleLegends1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

What does steam have to do with streaming and playing a game through the internet? Latency will always be an issues for people with slow internet connections.

Foehammer1033d ago

Very impressive

I'm so happy ppl won't have to buy a preparatory device to play.

Just own the X1 console

thx MS

shadowT1033d ago

Remote Play is alreday working on Android devices next to PS Vita and Playstation TV.

Automatic791033d ago

I love the ability to stream games on my surface, especially when I go on vacation. Thank you phil for making it happen and of course the Xbox team. Not to mention cross platform play. Now my friend that always has excuses about playing Xbox games won't, he can play from his PC.

WeAreLegion1033d ago

I thought it could only stream locally.

PoSTedUP1033d ago

it can stream to anywhere in your home, like what the Nvidia Shield does with PC. the vita is the one that gets a vacation ; ).

shadowT1033d ago

Sounds like Remote Play.

Software_Lover1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

Except you can use your device you already own.

edit: but yes, it is remote play

Edit2: I am aware of the APK hack so you can use Remote Play on other devices besides Xperia and Vita.

shadowT1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

You could use an Android device for Playstation Remote Play.

Christopher1033d ago

Which sounds a lot like Remote Play. I can stream a game on my PS4 to my tablet and phone.

Having said that, it's great to see more people implement this technology.

starchild1033d ago

Can I stream my PS4 games downstairs to my PC setup upstairs? I thought it only worked with the Vita and certain android devices.

NatureOfLogic_1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

Meh, This sounds extremely similar to remote play, something that Sony has done for years.
