Sony has a plan in the palm of their hand to get golden with the Vita it seems.

Speaking to Kotaku, Sony’s publisher and developer relations boss Adam Boyes stated that the PS4’s Remote Play ability, which allows gamers to transfer and play games on their PlayStation Vita handheld, will be one of the things to inspire publishers to invest in the device.

“You have this amazing sort of triple-A experience when you’re in bed knocking out a couple of scavenger missions in Assassin’s Creed IV right before you go to bed. I think with Remote Play that I’m gonna be playing very little mobile games at home now within the house.

“I do think that the Remote Play aspect of PS4 is gonna help the amount of Vitas that are out in the wild, and then that will start informing more publishers to build that bigger, meatier content.”

Of course, indie games will also be an important component to the PS Vita’s survival, as Boyes think titles like Spelunky feel more natural on the device. “We had a ton of announcements at Gamescom for great content like that on the Vita. So the reality is, we’re trying to create a bunch of different content for a variety of gamers so they get satiated with a device on the go or within their house.”

Will it help the handheld drive past Nintendo’s highly successful 3DS any time soon? We’ll find out in the coming months.
