W75's Victoria takes a look at Sony's Cross-Play capability and gives her thoughts on what it could do for the Vita.
i totally agree with her and i would add something else : truly psn integration ( trophies , message , cross game chat , notifications , near and the like ) the psp never really had psn integration , the vita has everything your ps3 has but playstation home so yea it has full psn integration ( heck it has features that even the great ps3 dont lol)
What I really want and has the possibilty of becoming the "hit" feature is this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Remote play + everywhere, using 3G/Wifi connectivity to let you play Your PS3 Games with Your Vita Everywhere, pretty much like Remote Races are done in GT5 (GT5 on PS3 @ Home, GT player anywhere with a PC + internet), althought that's never going to happen :(
probably wont ever happen at least via 3g because the data wouldnt be transfered via internet that fast but if it was wifi sure
Oh ye of little faith. Not in 3G but it will with WiFi. We have already seen Battlefield 3 running on remote play. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sony has already said they plan on remote play for all titles. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... The unit has yet to release in it's largest markets and you are already a naysayer. I say you are wrong, quite wrong.
Now can you cross game play with ALL games like battlefield, COD or a select few?
only time will tell if it takes off (something she never mentions) and only then will i agree with her
That can be said about any new feature that gets introduced on a platform. But it's a very promising feature. We played with it at CES and it was pretty cool to see it in action. The big question is will the third parties support it?
yep, that's the most important question and why i'm holding off from agreeing with it just yet. i largely agree, but not wholeheartedly. i also think that 'near' is a potential winner too, but just as in this case, it's too early to call.
I hope Sony capitalize on this, they already have Near working, they should not stop there and must continue to expand it.
Can the Vita slingbox with Ps3?
This chick doesn't know diddly about squat. It's 90% games 10% other.
To vague to be criticism. Just feel like insulting people?
another thing sony should capitalize is vitas online capabilities , release online multiplayer demos , online mutiplayer betas and the vita will probably be the connected online handheld to own , i mean a resistance burning skies beta would be sweet , little big planet online multiplayer demo would be sweet , call of duty beta , killzone beta , it has the hardware to back it up , it has full psn integration , social integration so everything is there just gotta make the right decisions .
All Sony needs to do is put the preasure on not only on themselves but also on third party relations to take advantage of this feature. I mean I see no reason why ports shouldnt feature this feature. Wipeout allows vita gamers to play against ps3 gamers and vice versa. Ruin or warriors lair, allows gamers to continue their game progresss on either platform. Like wipeout, Mortal kombat can take advatange of this feature, instead we hear is just a plain port with a few vita features(shame). There is no reason why a first party game like Modnation racers: roaf trip shouldnt feature this, much less online functionality. I can think of so many games that could make this feature so valuable. Right now as it stands if I had to guess, the concern for original psvita exclusives are high on demand. And thats ok. I say fine. Bring on the gravity dazes and golden abyss, but as far as everything else goes...i want cross play with it. Ultimate Marvel vs capcom 3 Mortal kombat Street fighter x Tekken MLB the show 2012 Modnation racers: road trip Littlebigplanet Ninja gaiden sigma+ Should all feature cross play, whether thats ruin's type (mainly for single player driven games)or wipeout's take(mainly for competitive games), they should all feature some form of cross play. Heck like trophies, I would make this a mandatory. Sony dont just provide features if they arent going to be mandatoty. My advice, dont wait until others come on board and make it a standard, it is your job to do so.
