The PS4 promises to usher in a new era of Remote Play as Sony has asked developers to make their PS4 games compatible with the PS Vita’s control inputs wherever possible. During the PlayStation Meeting Sony demonstrated upcoming PS4 title Knack being streamed on a PS Vita and it was immediately clear that the game was running at a higher resolution than what is currently possible with Remote Play via PS3.
We recently reached out to Shuhei Yoshida (president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios) on Twitter and asked him what resolution PS4 Remote Play runs at on PS Vita. He replied that Remote Play runs at the PS Vita’s native resolution (960×544) as opposed to the 852×440 resolution it currently runs at when playing PS3 titles such as God of War HD and ICO HD.
This is great news for gamers who have to share a TV with a partner or family member, or want to be able to play in a different room to where their TV is situated. Unlike Remote Play on the Wii U, you’ll also be able to stream PS4 games to your PS Vita when you’re out and about although video, audio and controller latency could be a factor depending on your network environment.
