PS4 New Details On Game Installs, Game Chat, Remote Play and Day One Patch
Shuhei Yoshida answers queries leading up to the PS4’s launch.
President of Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment Shuhei Yoshida took to Twitter to clarify several facts regarding the upcoming PlayStation 4, including the patch that users will need to download on launch day.
First off, you won’t need to worry about the patch keeping you from your games. Yoshida has revealed that you can download the 300 MB patch in the background while you play.
Yoshida also confirmed that you can have both game chat and game audio running simultaneously through the DualShock 4 headset, and you can even use the official Vita headset too if you so desire.
For games that support couch co-op, you’ll be able to use Remote Play on the Vita and have a second player join you using the DualShock 4. As of now, Knack has been confirmed to have this feature. It’ll depend on third party publishers if they implement the same in their games.
Information was also provided on mandatory versus optional installs, though the answer might not be what most people were expecting.
There’s still a ways to go for the PS4, so stay tuned as we anticipate its launch on November 15th/29th in North America/Europe.
