Use your DualShock 4 with your iPhone
Can you use a DualShock 4 PlayStation 4 controller with iOS Remote Play? Do you have to play using the on-screen touch controls? Firmware update 6.50 introduced the ability to use the PS4's Remote Play feature with iOS devices, such as iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, if you try to use your regular controller, it...
Never stop playing
Remote Play, the nifty PlayStation 4 feature that allows you to stream your games wherever you go, has now been extended to the PC and Mac. This means that, in addition to the PlayStation Vita, you'll be able to play all of your games on a laptop or a MacBook – as long as you have a DualShock 4 controller and a USB charging...
What a load of Macintosh
You may have read recently about an unofficial application which promised to enable PlayStation 4 Remote Play functionality on computers. Well, the people that have been building that must be feeling pretty darn rotten this morning, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that Sony's working on an...
Upping the ante
Remote Play, for the uninitiated, allows you to beam your PlayStation 4 to a PlayStation Vita or PlayStation TV. This means that you can play your games practically anywhere, as long as you've got a decent Internet connection. While it's always been impressive, however, it did have limitations – such as games running at 30...
Using remote play, of course
Do you long to play PlayStation 4 games while using the bathroom, but don't want to invest in a PlayStation Vita? Well, Sony now has the solution for you, as its recently announced that its new range of Xperia smartphones will be compatible with remote play. That's right, one of the Vita's most unique features is now...
PlayStation Vita's Remote Play is arguably one of the most intriguing features of the PlayStation 4. Beholding the delightful destruction of Resogun while curled up in bed is an absolute joy. But if you don't own Sony's shiny new machine yet and want to see just how well the feature works, Digital Foundry has you covered. The...
One of the PlayStation 4’s most important features is its compatibility with the PlayStation Vita. Earlier in the year, Sony announced that all developers would be required to support Remote Play on the next generation console, allowing you to play any games without a heavy emphasis on motion controls on the handheld device. But...
Using Remote Play, of course
Remote Play remains one of the most criminally under advertised features of the PlayStation 4. As Nintendo Wii U owners will attest, the ability to play home console quality games while using the bathroom is a massive boon. And, if a recent test by YouTube user The Phawx is anything to go by, the nifty feature may have...
Casting a spell
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...
There’s no doubt that Remote Play is one of the selling points of the PlayStation 4. The Gaikai-powered functionality will allow you to stream virtually all of your next generation titles directly to the PlayStation Vita, and play them in bed, on the toilet, or anywhere else that you desire. But the functionality is capable of...
It looks like cloud streaming company Gaikai was worth every cent of the $380 million that Sony paid for it, as the PlayStation 4’s hotly anticipated Remote Play functionality appears to work like a dream. The technology, which allows you to stream most next generation titles directly to your PlayStation Vita, was on display at the...
In the Animus
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...
Devil in disguise
Aside from games that make heavy use of the PlayStation Eye camera, you’ll be able to play your entire PlayStation 4 library on the PlayStation Vita. The promising Wii U-esque ‘Off-TV’ functionality is something that Sony envisioned with its previous generation consoles, touting the benefits of Remote Play as early as 2006...
You should always be cautious when Sony reveals an exciting new feature. While the platform holder is never short on ideas, it regularly drops the ball on interesting initiatives. Take the Eye Toy: the PlayStation 2 peripheral could be seen as a precursor to the phenomenal success of both the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox 360 Kinect, but...
Platform holder mandating nifty feature
Sony has a track record of announcing impressive features that never get used to their full potential. Remote Play is one such idea that, despite showing some promise, fell to the wayside on the PlayStation Portable and the PlayStation 3. However, the company’s eager to avoid the same issues with the...
Sony has a habit of teasing nifty features before going back on its word – but it looks like it wasn't telling porkies when it revealed that PlayStation Vita remote play would be compatible with virtually every PlayStation 4 game. An update to the impending platform’s official website brings the promising news, as it...
Soon you’ll be able to take your Tokyo Jungle progress on the go, when Sony patches the quirky Japanese adventure with Remote Play support. “We are preparing a PS Vita Remote Play patch for Tokyo Jungle NA and EU versions,” Worldwide Studios gaffer Shuhei Yoshida divulged on Twitter. “Please wait a bit for the release timing...
Vita only, PS3 patch required
Yesterday we reported that a patch for ICO HD Remote Play was on the way, and thankfully for those that want to try it out the wait was particularly short. It's been confirmed on the PlayStation blog that updates are now available in North America and Europe not only for ICO &
A portable beauty
Sometimes taking a classic and re-releasing it in a HD remake can be considered to be a bit of a cash grab. But when you take two wonderful PS2 games and make them even more special with upgraded visuals, as was the case with ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection — or ICO HD — then it's really impossible to complain. It...
Remote Play's always felt like a brilliant, brilliant idea completely squandered by a horrible lack of support
We remember testing out the PS3-to-PSP streaming application back in the heady days of '08, and being amazed that we could play PixelJunk Eden in the back garden (just about). But once the initial novelty wore off, we started to wonder why we couldn't play Grand Theft Auto IV too, and..
It looks like cross-platform play is going to form a key component of Sony's promotional activities for the PlayStation Vita
The platform holder's released a brand new trailer showing off all of the handheld's PS3 connectivity functions. The snippet shows save sharing in the Diablo-esque dungeon crawler Ruin, cross-platform multiplayer in Wipeout 2048, and even remote play with PS3 blockbuster..
Back at the Tokyo Game Show, Sony Worldwide Studios gaffer Shuhei Yoshida showed off an impressive demonstration with Killzone 3 running on the PlayStation Vita via Remote Play
The feature — which previously allowed compatible PS3 games to be played on the PSP — was largely under-utilised because it required additional development time in order to get working. But according to Eurogamer a..
Remote Play has, for a long time, been untapped potential
The ability to play PlayStation 3 games via your PSP was a brilliant one, but so little software took advantage of the feature that it quickly became worthless. With PlayStation Vita, Sony's planning on stepping up its Remote Play functionality. Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida demonstrated this during a keynote overnight by playing..
Sony's revealed that the PlayStation Vita can work as a controller for the PlayStation 3, potentially matching the capabilities showcased in Nintendo's new Wii-U system
Sony explained the potential to Eurogamer at last month's Develop conference. "What could you do with all of this?" Sony R&D boffin Phil Rogers questioned a room regarding PlayStation Vita's souped-up PS3..
Remote Play is a pretty awesome addition to the PS3/PSP's arsenal
The problem? The Playstation Portable doesn't have enough buttons to map exactly to a DualShock - thus, the PSP can't be used as a bridge for a "portable" Playstation 3. In principle, correcting such a problem is exactly what modder Techknott has done. He's developed a portable device with the same inputs as a Dualshock..
Howard Stringer was not messing when he said he wanted to make Sony's various brands more interconnected
Cue today's release of the Aino, Sony Ericsson's Playstation compatible mobile phone. Did we mention, the thing looks sexy as hell! But how should it interest us Playstation 3 owners? Well, apart from doing all the typical phone things, the Sony Aino can access Remote Play. Essentially that..
