Unless you’re already a Nintendo Wii U owner, then you’ll no doubt be impressed by the Remote Play demonstration embedded below. The footage shows PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall being played on a PlayStation Vita, with a television in the background highlighting just how little lag is incorporated by switching to the handheld.
While the video itself isn’t especially clear, there appears to be little more than one frame of difference between the portable and the display. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to tell how much delay the television itself is incorporating, but this appears more than manageable for the majority of genres. Of course, there are a variety of other factors – such as distance and Internet speed – which may impede your experience at home.
Nevertheless, after several months of scepticism, it seems that Sony’s hotly anticipated Remote Play functionality may be about to prove cynics wrong. Are you planning to take advantage of this feature? Which PS4 games are you most looking forward to playing via the pocketable platform? Stream some thoughts in the comments section below.
