Destiny's Vita-specific controls allow you to play from bed with ease

Destiny is coming next week, and Sony is enjoying some timed exclusive content as well as offering the ability to play the game using your Vita, if you'd like to step away from your PlayStation 4 and television.

The story is too old to be commented.

Anywhere with a solid and stable connection.

I remote played this from beta. It worked great, even when out of the house.

Nice bungie on the front touch screen, that rear touch pad is the worst invention ever and should never be used for anything.

Played it from bed during the beta, only tried the competitive mode, kicked ass my first round and was having so much fun I had to go downstairs and play it on the big screen (mainly cause I wanted to chat w my buddies)

^You were really competitive on the Vita in the crucible? I remote played during the Beta but only PvE, maybe I should try out PvP as well... nothing better than playing in bed :D

inmusicutrust1503d ago


The first match I played I did excellent, second match I wasn't doing as well but when I switched halfway through to the console I only did slightly better. Overall I'd say tough matches will be harder on vita but the average match will be a blast. Really fun being able to play from bed, and being able to seamlessly switch from ps4 to vita and back without exiting the game makes it that much better. One more match before bed has a whole new meaning this generation!

Yes this feature only activates once you are in bed.

GusBricker1503d ago

Don't worry, you can play from your porcelain throne, too.

Is it possible to remote play from a ps3 too?

Million dollar question here, anyone know?

No you cant, there are a handful of games you can remote play, but nothing worthwhile is on the list unfortunately. You can see the list on my comment below.

nX1503d ago

No, unfortunately not. The PS4 is built specifically to enable system-side RemotePlay for all games. On PS3, only a dozen of games support it but I have to say that it's a system-selling feature for me. It's crazy to play your PS4 through your friends or workplaces' WiFi, it probably even works cross-country.

inmusicutrust1503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

Theres a verrry short list of ps3 remote play games. Nothing big is on that list.

Here is the list:


Anarchy: Rush Hour
Bejeweled 2
Bionic Commando: Rearmed
Blazblue: Calamity Trigger
God of War Collection
Gundemonium Recollection
High Stakes Poker on the Vegas Strip
Hitogata Happa
PixelJunk Monsters
PixelJunk Shooter
Sim City 2000
The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection
Tokyo Jungle

Wow good to know that I can play this on a crappy resolution screen with horrible controls in the same spot that I can play it in 1080p. I do not understand how remote play is a viable option for some people. Just play it on your TV and on your non-laggy PlayStation. Vita is just a pointless handheld to have. Oh, unless you want platforming arcade games that my phone could run. It was my biggest waste of money this year. Can't believe I bought a vita what a waste

Anybody who really owned a Vita would never say that. Nice try though. Sony has reenergized the Vita with the PS4 and over a hundred games were just announced making it the must have device right now. Remote play might be the best innovation brought to gaming in the last 10 years.You can play your console games anywhere in the world. How can you say that's a bad thing troll?

rocky0475861503d ago

you can tell that fool had no idea what he was talking about. He was obviously referring to the PSP remote play that was kind of whack and useless. This remote play, however, is lag-less and seamless, you literally can watch what you're doing on the Vita and on the TV and there is ZERO lag. The resolution looks just as good, if not better because you're on a smaller screen and that OLED screen looks gorgeous.

Lwhit61503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

I have owned a Vita and that's why I hate it. Sold it to my friend and now he never plays it. You're delusional if you think I'm a troll.

Remote play doesn't work half of the time. Even with the strongest connections you're a liar if you think it does and is even the least bit fluid. The only thing the Vita is good for is pointless arcade games.

If you people really want me to I'm sure I can dig up my order history at GameStop to let you know I gave Vita a way bigger chance to impress me than I should have.

@rocky. You are quite literally out of your mind if you think the Vita has a "better resolution" than a 1080p Samsung TV. I'm sorry that you all feel the need to justify blowing 200+dollars on a horrible gaming device. I certainly am not going to sit here and act like my Vita purchase was anything more than a waste of money.

Well, on my college campus i found remote play pretty useful since the whole campus has wifi.

Dan_scruggs1503d ago

Cross play. It's almost like the Vita has real games. - Some Guy at Sony Probably

Protagonist1503d ago

Compared to the fake Vita games?
