Works well for me. What do you find shitty about it?

Captain_J_Sheridan157d ago

Audio skips a lot and controls are not responsive at all

Was expecting something like remote play on PS4 and PS Vita

You need a 5ghz wifi connection for it to work well. Also it's in beta so theres still bugs that may need ironed out

Its pretty decent for it being in beta. I just got done testing it out. After i heard they were gonna release it this month I ordered a "game clip" off Amazon. They are around $10 and essentially join your phone and xbox one controller together. Took all of ten minutes to set up everything. input lag is around 35ms says the diagnostic metric bar i have toggled on..not great but not terrible either and totally playable for most games.

If you're familiar with how the Steam Link hardware works, it's essentially like that, except your phone serves as your tv/monitor. Basically, PC game streaming to your phone.

So far, I have a Logitech F710 for my controller. It's a little janky at the moment, but eventually I'll try using my DS4 as a makeshift Steam Controller since that's what I use for my TV Steam Link.
