"..a great solution for families that often share a television, allowing the family member to carry on their game when the tv is being used by somebody else."

Innovative indeed ;)

harv0523330d ago

I have one like that, works really well....Now if Sony could make it so we don't have to use a separate account or an xperia phone, we'll be all set!

Bennibop3330d ago

Yeah love mine, use it with z3 tablet.

badz1493330d ago

the thing is, this thing is kinda overpriced for what it does. I have a z3 tablet myself and use it constantly for remote play and I would love to have one of this but the price is a turnoff for me.

@harv052

what do you mean by separate account? ah...I see, so you're using other than the Z2 and Z3, ha? I guess Sony just have to keep it "officially" only for their own line of smartphones or they lose their uniqueness among the ocean of Android phones available out there.

but it seems like they don't really mind the modified version that enabled remote play on other smartphones like you're using. I guess that's something.

TWB3330d ago

I think they already had an itch that somebody will manage to modify/crack/port the software to other android devices so they wont mind.

Besides, by observing some comment sections, you can see some people are incredibly sceptical about the modded version and believe it could steal your login informations even though the modded app originates from XDA forums.

IrisHeart3330d ago

Couldn't you just get a PS TV or Vita rather than an Xperia phone?

Kosic3330d ago

Any android phone can do remote play now. The app got moded a while ago to run on non Sony devices. My note 3 and tab s both run the remote play rather well.

IrisHeart3330d ago

Yeah but wasn't that an unoffical mod that gave random people your info?

Swonic3330d ago

it not only good for share play. you can also check sms facebook and email while you play... even telephone calls

Please do not put Destiny’s monetization into Sony’s first party games. The monetization is what’s driving players away from Destiny.

The new temp boss is the sony cfo bean counter so i can see this being a thing get every penny.

Cacabunga15d ago

@Cacabunga
You only speak for you and those who think like you, but most fans will support what they want. Playstation and PC fans are literally supporting Helldivers 2 and that is a gaas. Maybe you wouldn't, but many more would if they like it.

@Redemption-64
Look, Im not making any judgement calls about this guy, but I will say that Helldivers 2 GaaS model is unique to Helldivers, and legit the only other game I can think of thats similiar was the Avengers game except HD2 pass is still better.
The fact that you can earn in game currency in a way that doesnt make you feel like you have to grind forever, as well you being able work on that pass that you bought...on your own time without a time limit...that right there is fucking huge to me, and I can't name any game other than avengers that avoided trapping players with FOMO logic...I think GaaS on HD2 shouldn't be compared to the rest of the industry...it should be copied.

Helldivers 2...

Redemption-64

In Europe it's a 60 40 split favoring PC.
In the US its a 60 40 split favoring PS5.

So PlayStation owners supported the game just fine, it's not getting carried by PC or anything like that.

FinalFantasyFanatic15d ago

@just_looken,
I'm perfectly fine with the way Nintendo entered the mobile market, I never touched their mobile games, meanwhile, the console/handheld stayed the way it is. As for being a bean counter, he's probably going to reel in these massive budgets that Sony's studios have had lately, I haven't played Spiderman 2, but I cannot see how they almost tripled the budget for that game.

@Redemption-64,
That's an exception to the rule, I'm expecting a lot of these GAAS games from Sony to fail, to be fair, they only need a few to succeed, but I would have preferred that they put more of their resources into other types of games.

True their monetization is driving players away and at the same time, their decision to chop out content and convoluted systems is keeping new players away from the game.

Joe91315d ago

I don't think that will happen based on how things worked out at Naughty Dog now that we know what we do, seems they had the option to fully commit to live service games or stay making single player experences so they gave up on their live service game. We are not sure how things came about with Bend making a live service game but I hope that was not a forced situation. Sony doesnt seem like they are forcing studios to switch up but we will see, Sony's bread and butter is single player games it is how they dominated the console market.

Obscure_Observer15d ago

Yeah, I though Sony learned something from all their failures in the LS segment under Bungie´s disastrous leadership and supervision which led to games been cancelled, studios closed and all the people laid off.

Looks like Bungie still plays a major role in Sony´s LS initiative and Sony is not backtracking on their GaaS plans.

S2Killinit15d ago (Edited 15d ago )

Are we forgetting that Destiny is also a highly successful franchise? I feel like that definitely deserves mention here.

Besides, there is no reason why a person cant learn from past experiences.

Joe91315d ago

I agree, people act as if Destiny flopped when it came out lol it took 9 to 10 years for the numbers to fall yet people are still playing it add the success of Helldivers 2 no wonder Sony is going forward down this path.
