Tweet from former Naughty Dog lead game designer. Could be remote play via iPad, but it could also just mean accessing social features like viewing shared videos and etc on iPad
This was shown at the PS Meeting (the images with tablet/smartphones), you can control the PS4 OS using secondary devices. But true remote-play (playing games on secondary screens) is for VITA only. PlayStation Mobile gets put to use in a proper way, good stuff. http://psvita.mediagen.fr/r...
Who knows! I'm 100 percent sure its possible. But it's pointless if there's no physical controls. That's why the vita is the device to play with the ps4
But you can add ancillary functionality using the second screen that doesn't need physical controls. For example I would like to have a proper "radio" for GT5. When you're running a long race you might get sick of hearing the same song and want to change to a different playlist. Something like that could be better displayed and controlled on a tablet than on the TV.
It may be useless for gaming but it would be great for playing media remotely. Or maybe it would allow you to play your games on the tablet while controlling it with the DS4. I`m curious to see how they demo this feature at E3.
That is awesome. Atleast sony showcasing it works.
Maybe we'll be able to connect the Dual Shock 4 to the ipad via bluetooth.
that actually makes a good alternative.
Yes, my thoughts exactly. Vita would still be better but that might open the option to more people.
Wow that's innovative that's all Sony does
And it just keeps getting better for Sony.
Sony just does a good job of these things. I love their water proof phone.
Well...That escalated quickly.
Remote play on a water proof Xperia Tablet Z is much better.
they said there is going to be an app for sharing videos and chatting with friends from an Ipad or Android as well as being able to access the store to buy games when away from home
I thought the Remote Play was for the Vita only or does this have something to do with Gakai?
I think local remote play on the same network can be done Ps4-to-Device, but otherwise it will probably be done as a Gaikai service due to latency.
This was saying remote control, not remote play. Others in the twitter feed took it to mean that. This would just be a way to control the PS4 UI and other features using your ipad, and wouldn't doubt droid support either. Who knows, maybe they'll get Windows Phone support and I can use it on my phone.:) It may be possible to do remote play though, but I imagine you'd want an axillary controller hooked up to your smart device.
games like Journey Flow and Flower are the type of games ideal for touch screens. these should be on PSM by now...
Flower would be horrible on a touch screen
Do you think they will make a successor to Xperia play? Xperia play vita? Remote play with your cell phone!
Smart glass wasnt the only one now
This is really good especially since I have two iPads and about to get a Sony Xperia tablet z later this year. So I can message friends and look up stuff on my PS4 if this is all true. This is one thing I think M$ has gotten right is this smart glass stuff.
OH YAH THE SONY FAN BOY MACHINE NEEDS THE IPAD NOW FOR GAMERS TO PLAY ON PS4 CRAP CRAP CRAP. WHATS NEXT 3DS TO BE USED FOR XBOX ONE CONTROLLER AND AMAZING 3D EXPERIENCES NEVER SEEN BEFORE. OH WAIT MAYBE THE GAME GEAR WOULD BE BEST FOR THE PS4.
How u manage to keep more than 1 bubble.. One of those mysteries of life
very cool but i would definitely have to use my vita for remote play.. The buttons CANNOT be replaced by pressing at a flat screen.. It just doesnt feel right to me but hey, the more the merrier
Hmmm seems Sony has drm now interesting
