Sony has released a simple “Step by Step” guide for those looking to use Remote Play via their PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.
cool. I've never owned a handheld in my life (strange) but I might consider getting a Vita just for this.
One of, if not the best/most overlooked next gen feature IMO.
Agreed this is absolutely a next gen feature now if only I van set mine up to work through the internet...
Do it. Get a Vita. You will not regret it. Best handheld I've ever owned, and Remote Play is amazing. Remote Play is one of the only next gen features that actually *feels* next gen to me.
Yea thanks t this feature I can use my PS4 snce I no longer have an HDTV at the moment.
any1 tested remote over 3g yet?does it work or laggy
Doesn't work at all. Vita tells you to enable wifi and try again.
If you're reffering to set your 3G smartphone to be an wi-fi hotspot it might connect to the web but it doesn't have enough broadband to remote play. There's a video on YT of a guy doing it with LTE (aka 4G) he was about 10 miles from home and hooked his vita to his smartphone using it as an hotspot and even though he had 7Mb down/up speed with the lte network he experienced some lag on resogun so I don't think 3G is a good solution. Maybe try to find some free wi-fi hotspot.
Anybody make something out of remote control shots?
I have a vita slim and ps4 , I tried remote play with blackflag, bf4, and need for speed rivals. Remote play works well as far as streaming goes, bf4 was unplayable to me due to the controls (lack of L2/R2 and L3/R3), Blackflag was playable as long as you weren't doing ship battles which was hard due controls once again , pain to shot mortars, other then that worked amazing. Rivals worked perfect. If your planning on playing any fps be prepaid to be most likely disappointed like I was but but other stuff works really well as long as the game doesn't focus heavily on using the missing buttons the vita doesn't have. Will see how developers combat this minor issue so all games can play as good as others
Cod isn't actually that bad you just have to get use to using the rear and front touch took me about 2 matches
I don't own cod , just Killzone and BF4 , haven't tried Killzone yet but as far as the rear touch pad goes I've only owned my vita for about two weeks and haven't really used the touch pad even for the vita games I own (Killzone Mercs, and Ys memories of celceta) Maybe I'm just a newb with the rear touchpad?
Trust me you get used to the rear touch pad! Didnt take me long at all. Remote play is actually beast. Use it all the time. Though i kinda suck playing Killzone and BF4 online with the vita haha so i stick with single player.
Works amazing from home, but can't get it to connect at work over the internet.
I've tried it inside my house with Knack and BF4 and both look amazing and I am amazed at how easy it is to set up and get working. I could not figure out how to shut down the PS4 but after watching the video, I don't know how I missed it. Maybe I pushed a different button. I think I pushed the start button and not the ps button. Oh well, works great.
Remote playing Black Flag is quite fresh.
I enjoy cleaning up an island of collectibles while I should be getting some sleep.
Works on my home wifi with no problems. tried to connect from my gf's or work network and was never able to make a connection.
- I would like the opposite.....PS4 remote to PS Vita.
Hopefully getting a PS Vita for christmas. PS Vita with Black Flag on remote is something I am really looking forward to.
