"Wait? It works..."

Remote Play is undeniably one of the most exciting features of the PlayStation 4, but we were promised something similar on the PlayStation 3. As such, many have questioned whether the ability to stream next generation games to the PlayStation Vita will actually work. While this Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag demonstration doesn’t offer conclusive proof, the signs are looking good.

Obviously, it’s hard to get a feel for lag without being in control, but the action certainly looks responsive. Even more impressively, the image quality is excellent, with the next generation visuals of Ubisoft’s adventure converting wonderfully to the handheld device. If this really does work as advertised, it could change the game for Sony’s struggling portable.
