Yoshida Talks Remote Play: "It Will Be Amazing"

Posted on Tuesday, September 24 @ 07:00:28 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Using your Vita to play PlayStation 4 games won't disappoint, according to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

In an interview with 4Gamer, Yoshida provided a few new details on their much anticipated remote play feature. With regards to battery drain on the handheld, he said, "It’s very inexpensive (in terms of processing workload). Just as much as network communication. I don’t have precise measurements, but the battery life of the PlayStation Vita will be the same as when playing a game online."

As far as controls are concerned, the differences in button layout between the PS4 and PS Vita shouldn't pose a problem either. "Compared to the DualShock 4 the number of buttons on the Vita is lower," Shu explained. "Conversely the DualShock 4 has no touch screen. The DualShock 4 allows for basic gameplay on the PS4, but in order to allow you to play enjoyably with the PS Vita’s remote play, we’re asking developers to offer custom button mapping for the controller."

And then there's the question of visual quality. How will something streamed from the PS4 to the Vita's 5 inch screen look? Apparently quite awesome. "Since the screen is very large, with PS Vita games of course, but even when it displays PS3 games via remote play. It looks beautiful. Combine that with PS4 games and it will be amazing. For those that have a PS Vita, the value of the console will increase. If you try it by yourself, I think you’ll realize there’s no better experience."

Are you psyched for this new feature? Do you have faith that it will work as advertised? Let us know in the comments below.
