Join James as he discusses and shares his thoughts on the Sony Dual Shock 4 Game Control Mount for the Playstation 4.
"..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 ;)
that's pretty cool
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!
Yeah love mine, use it with z3 tablet.
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.
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.
Couldn't you just get a PS TV or Vita rather than an Xperia phone?
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.
Yeah but wasn't that an unoffical mod that gave random people your info?
it not only good for share play. you can also check sms facebook and email while you play... even telephone calls
Android with a mountable controller or Nvidia shield is definitely an amazing gaming platform. I was just playing Fzero. Emulators up to dreamcast, remote play, pc stream, and a wide range of controller compatible games
You don't need a Sony phone to do this. I have the remote play app on my LG G2... Now I need one of these mounts because touch screen play is horrid
How about iPhone?
Has to be android. You need to side load the app. Unsure if there is an app for jailbroken devices. Not looked into the iPhone world in a good while.
Been interested about this "controller mount" since I just bought Z2 a week ago. Even though I cant get remote play to work for some awkward reason I still want to play some of my PS1 games on an emulator with a controller.
