PlayStation 4 Remote Play Allows for “PS4 in Your Pocket”
Fergal Gara says that the Vita “seamlessly integrates with PS4” better than PS3.
Sony UK MD Fergal Gara recently spoke to Official PlayStation Magazine UK about the Remote Play feature for the PlayStation 4, which allows you to play almost all of your PS4 titles on your handheld PlayStation Vita.
Gara stated that “clearly it more seamlessly integrates with PS4 than it does with PS3″ and that despite first being marketing as a portable PS3, he feels that now a portable PS4 is “a far more literal and correct terminology because you can play what we expect to be the vast majority of PS4 games quickly and easily enabled for PS Vita”.
He also remarked that Remote Play is “best for both” PS4 and Vita. “In short, there’s a video coder chip inside PS4 that enables a variety of features. It enables live broadcast of your gameplay without putting any overhead on the CPU and the GPU combo, so it’s not dragging down the game performance in any way, shape or form.
“But it also allows you – and it is Gaikai enabled technology – allows you to pick up the Vita and go away with a full suite of controls and play your PS4 game over WiFi”.
We already know that games like Killzone: Shadow Fall will be one of the games to support Remote Play – in fact, any title that doesn’t need the PS Eye will be supported. Which one do you look forward to playing on the go?
