Controlling a Vita and Dual Shock 4 improves the experience more than you might imagine. Hack them together like my daughter did and you have a new way to play PlayStation 4 games on the go — big bright screen, controller sticks, lights and rumble.
Pretty cool little trick, but if i understand correctly the controller is connected to the PS4, so you wouldn't be able to play it anywhere in the world like he says.
Ok Mr. Party Pooper.
OR you could just use your Vita...
cool trick but as you say you won't be able to play it outside the range of PS4. I was wondering when they would allow remote play on phones and tablets, that would be quite cool.
When playstation now comes out.
Can you use it anywhere with a wifi connection? I tried it at Starbucks and it didn't work.
Likely to be a firewall issue with Starbucks.
& you only need 1 DS4 controller not 2 Pretty cool though, perfect for gaming outside or while TV in use
Wishing I had a Vita I would try this trick out myself >,<
System seller I think.
When what they really need to do is allow you to register a DS4 with your Vita and use it as an external controller if you want.
yes that would the ideal thing and sony could come up with their own solution to this issue.
thats a good idea , sony should look into that if they arent already, it would sell more DS4 controllers i suspect.
Everything will sell more DS4 controllers. Them working on PS3 Using them for PS Now with any device Using them for Vita Tv once released outside Japan They plug and Play on PC Add a vita update that allows native connectivity and DS4s will be selling like crazy.
You use to be able to do this w/ a DS3 and a pspGO back in the day. Do not see why they would not allow it now?
Sweet Portable PS4 even better!
My 2 girls were doing this the other day by accident, they were playing 2 player lego marvel when i wanted the TV for the football, so the use remote play and carried on playing 2 player on the vita. made me think it would be cool way to play split screen games.
Your daughters are really smart. it must be cool to have daughters who love gaming. Mine hate it. They prefer playing with Barbie. Long live gaming.
Probably time to just go ahead and give them up for adoption ;)
Keep trying until you have a couple of lads also :)
You have next gen kids
Seeing all the positive responses to your comment makes me happy, as a gamer.
This sort of contraption has been made before a few weeks ago. Honestly I think sony should make and official accessory like this and allow ds4 to work on same account during RP. Make it $9.99 and I know I'd buy it.
There is a clip on amazon that clips your phone to your Ds4, I wonder if the Vita will fit. I think it's called Nyko Smart Clip. It's $9.99
I've seen that and also wondered if vita would fit. Only thing from keeping me from buying it is I thing thickness of vita is too much. Now vita Slim might work being slimmer and much lighter apparently.
*Cringes at use of the word "hack"*
this "hack" was all over the internet before this article. sounds like this guy is taking credit for someone else's work.
Exactly. Not sure why no one's really noticed this, or the fact that you still don't get any trophies/progression on your main account.
Old and you wont get progression/trophies on main account
That's only a problem if you care about getting trophies and such.
Who cares about trophies? No one!
was already doing this with my vita playing injustice and NBA2k14 with my brother..just sign in with a different user with your dualshock4..i thought everyone who has a vita know it function as shown.. :)
Seems like too much effort I'll stick with the Vita as it is for now.. Plus that screen dimming is a deal breaker for me.
One to try.
Hack or just tying them together with a laggy band?
How the is this a hack?
Yet another misuse of the 'Hack' word. Blue Peter was the King of Hacking by taping cartons together
Wouldn't that be quite heavy?
The Special-Snowflake treatment.
oh please stop with your extremely smart daughter ok... if I had kids they would be so dumb, sniff.
This trick is almost as good as farting in bed and holding the blanket over my wife's head. She loves it.
Too bad it doesn't work on your main account, effectively making this useless.
