Man sits on toilet for two hours with dried shit on his ass. LOL

Second screen two player co-op is an awesome inclusion. I really hope more games implement it.

Now imagine owning a PS Vita TV and a co-op game on two separate tvs without having to own two PS4s.... Yeah, I REALLY hope more games include this form of co-op.
My brother who is in another state could play some co-op games with me without even owning the game or the PS4 itself. All he'd need is a $100 Vita Tv.

MY GOD...look at it! it looks absolutely gorgeous on the Vita! Portable PS4 is no joke, it runs like a dream!


BISHOP-BRASIL1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )


Yup, made the Vita that much more worth it!

Also I wasn't so interested in this game (probably getting it later or checking out when it would innevitably came into PS Plus) but this short demonstration gave me a much nicer old Crash vibe!

I hope they show more of it, if there are more levels like that along with those grow/shrink lab puzzles I'm buying it on launch. Looks like it will be great to play on Vita (maybe even more than on PS4, not that something is wrong on PS4 or anything like that, it just looks like the kind of thing I would enjoy much more on a portable).

Abriael1818d ago

remote play is at launch. Gaikai is next year.

Kingthrash3601818d ago

in tears hugged up with my vita in a corner right now....cant comment.

LeCreuset1818d ago


I won't comment, so long as you swear to never turn that thing in for resell.

“Couch Co-op Redefined” really? Nintendo had redefined co-op play before anyone with the Wii U, and even before that with the Gameboy advance and the gamecube. So this is by no means a refinement in co-op couch play.

G20WLY1818d ago

What if you're on a couch in another house and still playing co-op? ;P

duducus1818d ago

Then it really isn't couch Co-op, if the guy isn't there... :P

Abriael1818d ago

You seem a little hurt.

gusgusjr1818d ago

Hey Abriael, did you just get an account on neogaf? Trying to find an email that would work, but I'm not allowed to use my work email.

Abriael1818d ago

@gusgusjr: been a while, just used my work mail.

colonel1791818d ago

But this can be done while being somewhere else, not just at home like the Wii U. Granted, don't know if it will be supported at launch, but from what I have read, you can play at your house with your PS4, while a family member or friend can play on the Vita at another place/city, etc.

Sony confirmed remote play via internet,not just home network, but my guess is that with co-op it still applies.

Moncole1817d ago

It will be very laggy when you do it somewhere else. Befor you go on saying how they show the feature live think of this. They were both using the same internet and the servers weren't busy. Now if you are at work and your PS4 is at home streaming Killzone SF will be hard. People will be uaing the servers, both devices will be under different internet connections and you will need to stream a big game. Same thing will be with Gaikai

TomShoe1818d ago

LMAO! Looks like someone's just jelly.

cell9891818d ago

it is a refinement, the Vita allows coop play, from anywhere theres a WiFi connection

JoGam1818d ago

It aint that deep dude. Have a seat!

lawlesdweller1818d ago

Yeah until you go out of the room as we dont all live in a house made of Wood as bricks and alittle issue called distance stops this and yes i have both consoles and yes a PSVita and all the other things too

Angels37851818d ago

While I agree with your name....I don't agree with your comment

tubers1818d ago

It's an overstatement. Always need to have "that" kind of PR.

ShinMaster1817d ago

So you're saying you could display and play almost every GameCube game on the GBA and play from anywhere in the world on the Wii U's Gamepad?

Didn't think so.

webeblazing1817d ago

didn't I call this, and everyone bashed me because I said they re going to use vita as a controller for games. this is the start.

Xsilver1818d ago

Now I'm pretty sure you can also do this with the Vita TV too that means i can have 2 Tv's for full screen co-op O.O Lets just say I'm veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy excited for Remote Play.

colonel1791818d ago

I hope it's implemented well, and it's supported as it should. I played LAIR using remote play on the PSP and it worked great. We all know that as long as Sony support the feature (which is supposed to be in every PS4 game), we will get great and tight controls for the Vita. The issue will come from third parties which will most likely rush (or shoehorn) button layout support for the Vita. Hell, I'm not even sure third parties will support the DS4 touchpad as it should, so expecting proper implementation of remote play, will be a stretch.

DEEBO1818d ago

best feature is remote play to me.

MrTimesplitters1817d ago

Your best feature is something Nintendo Invented?

TongkatAli1817d ago

Yeah, but Sony is doing it better from what it looks. Thanks to Nintendo for being a pioneer.

nikrel1818d ago

i hope there is minimal lag with this..

Clover9041818d ago

at 0:13 "no latency"

The PS4 was built from the ground up with the Vita and Remote Play in mind.

MrTimesplitters1817d ago

I highly doubt that there is 0 latency considering remote play is being used over WI-FI. But I guess we just have to wait and see.

mushroomwig1818d ago

You can see for yourself there is no visible lag.

sypher1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

Seems that instead of using the same CPU that is handling all the computations for the game like they did with the ps3's remote play. They are using a separate chip whose sole purpose is handling remote play.
